July 2012 Book of the Month. Fast-paced and thrilling, a dazzlingly varied sequence of unrelated stories all triggered by one single act dance through the second of Matt Dickinson’s Mortal Chaos titles. When a security guard kills a butterfly, the pane of glass it is fluttering against falls from the building. The immediate effect is remarkably small; the shock waves are immense. Across the globe in different continents and completely different settings, the lives of a host of characters are changed forever. Some are lucky; others are less so. The story of each is utterly compelling.
