Orphans of Chaos by John C Wright

As a reviewer said on the book jacket, this book has a Narnia feel to it and I concur.  There is a lot of mythology, but Wright attempts to provide a scientific basis for the gods.  I found a lot of good discussion on morality and was definitely mentally engaged.  The book is a little weird for sure, but highly entertaining.

The middle is a little slow, but it finishes with a bang.  The characters are well fleshed out and believable.

I definitely recommend this book and I look forward to reading the second.
