Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

In this sequel to The Demons at Rainbow Bridge , all intelligent species in the galaxy retain a racial memory of evil beings: horned, red-eyed and cloven-hoofed. Responding to rumors that demons have been found, the nonhumanoid races, each belonging to three warring empires, send ships to investigate. While fighting with the other groups, the half-dozen members of each race chase a pair of devils through a multidimensional maze that bears a striking resemblance to Dante's Hell, down to the "Abandon All Hope . . . " sign over a gate. As Chalker repeats each encounter three times--once per group--the reader's interest fades quickly.

From School Library Journal

YA-- A well-written, action-packed sci/fi adventure. In Demons at Rainbow Bridge (Ace, 1990), alien creatures bearing an uncanny resemblance to the devil were released from stasis by overzealous scientists. Now the demons, hellbent on galactic domination, are pursued through an interdimensional maze by specialized teams from each of three warring empires. This is Chalker at his entertaining best, creating unique universes peopled with fascinating aliens and diverse human cultures. Complexity of plot, however, combined with a large number of characters may cause confusion for some YAs. Like cliffhangers of a bygone era, Chaos Keep ends amidst conflict, leaving readers anticipating the next installment. --John Lawson, Fairfax County Public Library, VA

4.0 out of 5 stars Involving sci-fi with incredible world building Aug. 21 2006
By Judah - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is book two in the Quintara Marathon, and you should read "The Demons at Rainbow Bridge" first, and then follow this novel with "The Ninety Trillion Fausts."

Having broken free of their ancient imprisonment, a pair of Quintara make the three empires stop and notice their ancient enemies have returned. The Mizlaplan (fanatics of the Cosmic All), the Mycholians (parasites who control other lifeforms), and the Exchange (ruthless capatalists) all send teams in an effort to stop the Quintara.

As the teams compete against and cooperate with each other on the journey to Chaos Keep, where the ancient seals that imprison the Quintara reside, they must survive the million ancient traps on the way.

This gripping science fiction novel keeps up a good pace and further develops the characters introduced in the first book. The danger and inner conflicts make it well worth reading. If you read book one, buy it... the story gets better!

The Quintara Marathon is such a well done series it is hard to put it down for long. I felt like I was one of the characters and I just had to get back in there. The Run To Chaos Keep stayed in character with the first book and never disappointed.

Continuation of the interesting conflict between the three empires and their emotional, physical, and psychological states. I'd reccomend it to any hard science fiction readers out there.
