Review: Tranquility’s Blaze – Krista D. Ball

“What will I do? What I do best. I’ll find him and I’ll kill him. And then I’ll kill Garran’s murderer.”

Even if the killer is my sister. 

A half-breed and a female, Lady Bethany clawed her way to the ranks of the Elven Service’s top military elite. They only knew her as their champion against Magic, and not the daughter of a Goddess. She’d expected a long, rewarding life protecting those under her care. But that was before her twin sister returned from exile, addicted to brutal Magic and human sacrifice, twisted inside, and abusing ancient prophecies to overthrow their mother and destroy everything Bethany holds sacred.

The world will burn in flames and innocents will die, unless Bethany can stop it. Unless she can take the life of her own sister.
My thoughts: 
I can’t say that I loved any of the characters, but you know, it does not always matter. Which is weird cos here I thought I needed to cheer someone on…but, yes there is a but. I really hated the baddie, I guess that is why the characters worked for me 😉 I put all energy on Sarissa. She was one evil B! An awesome evil character to hate.
Ok so we got Bethany who is all FIGHT! FIGHT! And can kick anyone’s ass. She is also the daughter of a Goddess and has her own prophecy….I do wonder how that will turn out. I shall not mention something but how I wonder.
Right, then there is her evil twin sister Sarissa. Evil, so very evil, you would not even believe how evil this woman is! It was great, cos a good fantasy book should have someone evil that you want to see fall into hell.
There is fighting, wanting someone, and hints of the prophecy and of course Sarissa being evil. I wanted to know more about their mother and I also wanted to know more about a people called Rygents. A fascinating world.
Conclusion:
The end, oh the end, do not leave me like that.

    "My friend the is the enemy of my enemy". Hahaha. Sometimes the baddie is so bad that it doesn't matter if you like the characters, so as long as they beat the baddie. haha

    Uh oh, that ending comment makes me concerned about a cliffhanger! Still this sounds pretty cool. And I totally agree with this: "a good fantasy book should have someone evil that you want to see fall into hell."
