Titans of Chaos by John C. Wright
"Titans of Chaos" completes John Wright's "The Chronicles of Chaos". Launched in "Orphans of Chaos" - a Nebula Award Nominee for best novel in 2006, and a Locus Year's Best Novel pick for 2005 - and continued in "Fugitives of Chaos", the trilogy is about five orphans raised in a strict British boarding school who discovered that they are not human.The students have been kidnapped, robbed of their powers, and raised in ignorance by super-beings. The five have made incredible discoveries about themselves. Amelia is apparently a fourth-dimensional being; Victor is a synthetic man who can control the molecular arrangement of matter; Vanity can find secret passageways through solid walls; Colin is a psychic; Quentin is a warlock. Each power comes from a different paradigm or view of the universe. They have learned to control their strange abilities and have escaped into our world: now their true battle for survival begins.
