Book Review: Interlude


By:  Krista D. Ball

Publish Date:  February 28, 2015

Format:  eARC

Genre:  Fantasy

Series:  In the world of Tranquility. Book 1 ~ Tranquility's Blaze, Book 2 ~ Tranquility's Grief 

Recommendation:  For the fun of all that is Bethany, yes, pick this up to remember what fun the crew is. (And meet a new character to be in Fury.)

Love Notes is about Bethany and Arrago’s first month working together. I’ve never been happy with how I developed their relationship in BLAZE, so this was a great opportunity to explore those early days between two very different people.

Knight’s Day Off is a story my Facebook people will have seen before. This one also takes place during those early days between Arrago and Bethany. Only this time, poor Bethany tries to take a day off work. Things don’t go according to plan. At all.

First Day on the Job is set after the events of GRIEF and is set about a week before the events of FURY. Myra, a Knight apprentice, is assigned a simple task: get Arrago, Edmund, Bethany, and the rest of the senior staff to attend a party hosted by Queen Celeste. However, it’s soon obvious that there’s more than just a party in the works and none of the main players are following the rules. (Myra will appear in FURY, so this is her introduction, plus an outsider’s view of where we find Bethany, Arrago, Jovan, and the rest of the gang.)

My Thoughts and Summary:
It's been a while since I've had the pleasure to read Bethany. This is a fun to see Bethany, Arrago, Jovan, and Kiner back at their ways. The banter between them all is a hoot. The first two stories happen during Tranquility's Blaze. The last story brings us back to where everyone is before Fury is released. And now I can't wait for it to come!

Love Notes
Bethany is an extremely busy knight. So most of their inter-office communication (and banter) is through notes.

Bethany and Arrago are so different that they complement each other and make me smile while bantering. Arrago really is good with Bethany and her rough exterior.

Oh this is fun to read and see how their work relationship and friendship grows through these letters. I just love seeing these two together and as their banter turns to flirting, and they realize it. So much fun!

Knight's Day Off
Bethany, Jovan, and Kiner have three days off! At the same time.

The Tranquility Trio. Allric was to represent the Knights at the arrival of Relas as the three are off. The Relas arrives early and Allric isn't anywhere to be found. And a Knight is needed. Mother Aneese knows of the new order - a ledger to tell of who's off.

Bethany only wants to take a bath and rest before leaving for two days. Three men invade her room while she's trying to do just that. LOL! Oh the results. And what Jovan and Kiner kidnap Arrago... Oh my! LOL!

Then theirs the history that Relas has with the trio. Hahaha. This crew are a rowdy bunch, and such friends. It appears Arrago is part of the crew now too.

First Day on the Job
Myra has just walked off the boat at the castle. She wants to be a part of Lord Kiner's team and help with the war. Kiner assigns her to Queen Celeste's personal administration, to relay messages from queen to senior members.

Myra's first job will interact with all the main players in Tranquility. Oh boy, the interaction! This story brings them all into focus and where they are now. Bethany and Arrago get to banter by way of messenger.

Myra sees obstacles of her age (she's so young) and parentage, but she's determined to life beyond those and be the best she can. Myra is half Rygent and can read peoples feelings along with their body language, and things are mixed up along with her own fears and feelings mixed in.

This is a great read while waiting for book three! The jokes are fun yet truths and secrets are discovered.
