The Scroll of Chaos

We rated this book:


The Scroll of Chaos is about a young Chinese girl named Astrid Xu who has always wanted to help her mother escape her depression. When she finds the Scroll of Chaos with her little sister, Marilla, she thinks it may be the key to managing her mother’s depression; but, the scroll has other plans. Instead of fixing her Mom’s depression, Astrid and her little sister Marilla are transported to the world Zhen: a realm where Chinese mythological creatures are real. Astrid thinks that she has come to a world of paradise, but soon she discovers that an ancient evil named Chaos is causing mayhem all around Zhen, and Astrid is the only one who can stop it.

The Scroll of Chaos was a good book and it had a good storyline, but the book started off very slow and it took a while to get to the action. This book would be great for kids ages six to eleven and anyone who likes mythology. It would be even better for people who especially enjoy Chinese mythology and people who enjoy tales of friendship with a strong female protagonist. The Scroll of Chaos will be very successful once it hits the shelves; I hope the author realizes what a good work of art she has created.
