Tranquility's Blaze: Book 1 of Tales of Tranquility | [Krista D. Ball]

Tranquility's Blaze: Book 1 of Tales of Tranquility

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.

    "Disappointed"

    From the 4 & 5 star reviews I expected something better than a "B" movie type book. The book is very slow and the main character is portrayed as a 70 year old teenager. Bethany, the main character is 70+ years old although she ages slowly she still looks young. But having 70+ years of experience has done nothing for her. So shows no sign of making good decisions, her decisions are still rash, and impulsive as a teens would be.
    I've suffered through 6 chapters hoping it would get better as I bought both book 1 & 2 at the same time.
    The narrators high pitched voice was another added annoyance.
    I will steer clear of any other books by Krista D. Ball.and definitely away from any narration by Cori Samuel.

    "Strong women - Great performance - Fantastic world"
    What made the experience of listening to Tranquility's Blaze the most enjoyable?

    Cori Samuel's performance brought the characters to life right from the beginning. I took me a few chapters to get comfortable with races and the limits of the magic, but the well developed characters and the world made a good impression from the beginning. Cori does all the voices very well, both male and female, but especially she brought the high born heritage, strength and femininty of Lady Bethany to life. The influence of magic turning her sister evil came across quite naturally to me, and drove the plot well. The evil was real but not too gruesome. As an aside, i hope it isn't a spoiler, but I think only a woman author could make the elves vegetarians, and be able to describe so well how that diet upset their human allies / trainees. It really reads very well, including the complaints of some of the men saying it's not natural! It wasn't until the day later that i actually thought about that particular feature being especially peculiar to a woman's point of view (it is certainly not central to the plot! but i did find it amusing.). I am looking forward to the following novels and following the characters in this fantastic world.
