Chaos Mode is the exciting new novel in the Mode series, which began with Virtual Mode and continued with Fractal Mode. Praised by Publishers Weekly as "fresh, imaginative...skillful, enjoyable, " and by Kirkus Reviews as "an interesting mix of SF and fantasy, " this new series has been welcomed with delight by Piers Anthony's millions of fans. The world of the Mode series is one of Anthony's most fascinating achievements. One universe is stacked on another, and an unlikely band of heroes has learned how to pass from one into the next - frequently with danger at their heels. Colene, a young woman from Earth, has learned to fight back against the suicidal depressions that torment her. Darius, the king from another planet who won her love, finds that his feelings are ever deeper for this lonely human. And Seqiro, the telepathic horse who shares their journeys, knows that his instinctive desire to travel through multiple universes with Colene was the best choice he could have made. Together in Chaos Mode, they face their most dangerous adventures. They are joined by an extremely unusual traveling companion: Burgess, a tentacled creature from a universe where evolution progressed along a very different path from that on Earth. By the end of Chaos Mode, their travels will take them to a place that in some ways is the strangest of all: a place called Earth, where Colene can at last make some sort of peace with her parents and with the events of her early life that made her the person she is. Piers Anthony's great strengths - a fearless imagination, a colorful sense of humor, and a raging desire for social justice - have never been more evident than in this newest masterwork.
