Baker & Taylor
Five non-human orphans raised in a strict British boarding school have discovered their true natures, harnessed their strange abilities, and escaped into the world, where their true battle for survival begins.

McMillan Palgrave
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.
The Chronicles of Chaos is situated in the literary territory of J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter books, and Neil Gaiman's American Gods, with some of the flash and dazzle of superhero comics.
