The Chaos of Luck is the second novel in Catherine Cerveny’s Felicia Sevigny trilogy. Once again we’re back to a world of science fiction. Or rather, a universe of it. Cervency’s world encompasses much of the solar system, and it is full of dynamic and dangerous characters.

Felicia Sevigny was hoping that Mars would be a fresh start for her. Considering the mess she left behind on earth, nobody can blame her there. Here she can hopefully practice her art and work in peace.

But peace may not be in the cards. For there is no such thing as quiet around Alexei Petriv, and Felicia can’t seem to stay away from him. Or vice versa. And that is not the only complication looming on the horizon.

Spoiler Warning

The Chaos of Luck was the perfect continuation in the dramatic and intense series. Felicia’s story has been dramatic, full of twists and turns, and a complex love story sure to catch the attention of its readers.

First, let me just say that I am painfully aware of how behind on the time I am. The Chaos of Luck came out quite some time ago, and I’m only now getting around to reviewing it. But for what it’s worth, I really did enjoy The Chaos of Luck. This was a book I put on my nightstand to read when I needed to get out of my own head before trying to get some sleep. That may not have been a smart call since it just as easily could have resulted in me staying up all night reading. But it seemed like a smart idea at the time!

I really enjoyed reading this novel. First, there’s the world itself. I’m honestly quite desperate to see more of this lushly described world. Both Mars and Earth seem quite different, politically speaking. But at the same time, they have some stark similarities. It’s fascinating, and I want to see more of them both.

Then there are the characters. Felicia is not your classic heroine. She is determined, passionate, and unafraid to speak her mind. And there’s more than a decent chance that she’ll resent you for trying to rescue her. And I love her for it. She’s sassy and confident, but sometimes that means she’s comfortable showing her vulnerability. It makes her so human.

I also am fascinated by the fact that she’s essentially off the net in a universe overwhelmingly full of technology. It makes for an interesting perspective, seeing the extra challenges in how she navigates the world.

While I’m bummed that I took so long to read and review The Chaos of Luck, there’s at least one bright side to this situation. I don’t have to wait to get my hands on The Game of Luck, as I already have it. I can’t wait to get started! (I’ll try to be faster this time around, I swear).
