I read an early copy of Alice Will and found it had a Terry Pratchett feel to it. Wildly creative, something very new, and a little odd, in a fun way. Some fun characters and a very creative world as we followed Trotter through her journey of discovering herself.
Excited to see this book released by my friend, Ashley Chappell.

About Alice Will:
Alice is the first book in the Dreams of Chaos series (the 2nd will be re-released soon) and is age appropriate for ~10 and up. The series grows up with Trotter, the 14-year old heroine of this first story, and the material does progress in maturity with her. Given that, Alice Will can be read as a standalone novel for younger readers not yet ready to read the darker concepts and slightly more violent scenes found in the 2nd and 3rd books in the series.
From the jacket:
Fourteen year-old Trotter was still just trying to get the hang of the demi-godding business when the apocalypse began. In a world where the gods have withdrawn from humanity, leaving mortals bitter toward magic, she finds herself constantly torn between her human and goddess sides. When the world begins to fade away and she becomes the prime suspect, her search to find the cause and prove her innocence ends up revolving around a mysterious little girl named Alice. Then Trotter discovers that not all of the gods had been as distant as they seemed...
Now, with everyone against her and the gods fighting amongst themselves, Trotter is on her own to save her world and stop a vengeful god from using Alice to destroy everything.
