King of Chaos, a Pathfinder Tales novel by Dave Gross, was released in August 2013. An audiobook version narrated by Paul Boehmer was released in October 2015. The book marks the fourth full-length novel featuring Varian Jeggare and Radovan, and is set during the events of the Wrath of the Righteous Adventure Path.

After a century of imprisonment, demons have broken free of the wardstones surrounding the Worldwound. As fiends flood south into civilized lands, Count Varian Jeggare and his hellspawn bodyguard Radovan must search through the ruins of a fallen nation for the blasphemous text that opened the gate to the Abyss in the first place—and which might hold the key to closing it. In order to succeed, however, the heroes will need to join forces with pious crusaders, barbaric local warriors, and even one of the legendary god callers. It's a race against time as the companions fight their way across a broken land, facing off against fiends, monsters, and a vampire intent on becoming the god of blood—but will unearthing the dangerous book save the world, or destroy it completely?
