This is the second installment to the series and interestingly it doesn't pick up where book 1 left off, this one concentrates on Tara's story and even though it's a fairly short read, this one drew me in and I couldn't put it down.
Now that Tara's memories have been unlocked, she is starting to remember the gruesome torture she endured when she was taken by Sarian, her nightmares are starting to consume her. This along with the fact Zanya is not yet home leaves her feeling so vulnerable. Can she hold it together and will she make the right choices ?
Whilst I really enjoyed book 1, this second one really stepped up to the mark. I was completely absorbed into the story and taken right into Tara's crazy world. A great series which I am thoroughly enjoying, I can't wait to read book 3. A big 5 stars from me !
Tara may have spent many years in an asylum, but that doesn't make her crazy -just fearless.
I had to go get interlude by kindle unlimited because I didn't expect explanations to be So Wrong.
Instead we are thrown into the world of Tara the best mate of the guardian.
We learn a lot more about Tara her time with sarian and her past in more detail.
Whilst the guardian battles the underworld,
Tara hates being the ordinary, when everyone else is superhuman.
A mortal girl with horrid past, Tara is left to deal with overwhelming sense of feeling inadequacy.
Peter her boyfriend being the healer.
She struggles to leave her childhood abuse in her past.
When they opened my Pandora box my hell come pouring out...
When Tara was given the chance to help the group's mission she was very eager but didn't truly mean uncovering buried memories of being held prisoner to the underworld general.
No they haunt her with flash back's of his torture.
I don't want to give to much away it's amazing series ultimate book to the series.
Review done by louiseloppyloubailey book blog
I started Interlude straight after I had finished Mayan Blood.. The way that Mayan Blood had finished I expected some explainations... WRONG!!! Lol Instead we were thrown into the world of Tara.
This instalment of the series is from Tara's POV, so we learn alot more about her past and what happened during her time with Sarian and the pain she had to endure, it soon becomes clear that her mind and body isnt coping with the trama... Leading us to a very mysterious Malachi..
I must say.. our time with Malachi did not disapoint! #Hitmewiththefeels
In conclusion, I found this book had a totally different feel than Mayan blood, yet it works really well. I was enthralled from start to finish so much so I finished the book in one sitting! Can't wait to find out what Lights of Aurora (Stone Legacy #3) has instore for us!

This book focuses more on Tara, Peter, and Malachi. I hate Malachi because he has become so well and then into a cruel guy. Well, it turns out he was only pretending to be cruel so his plans could run smoothly. And in the end he was back to being a hero again 😄 He is a good guy. I loved him! And Peter, he's so romantic!😍 When he proposed Tara for the second time, I cried 😢
"I want to be with you. And if that's the only commitment you can make right now. I'll take it." He placed a kiss on the back of her hand. "Tara Weeble, you'd make me the happiest man in the world if you would be mine, forever. No ring. No ceremony. Just love me, and I swear that I will love you. Not only for the rest of your life, but for the rest of mine."
What I liked
I really liked being able to see Tara conntribute more to the cause. She has been feeling so useless because she doesn't have any powers like the rest of her friends, and I think that it was weighing on her. I do like Tara's character much better than the main character of the series, Zanya. Seeing things from Tara's point of view was refreshing.
I very much enjoyed seeing a different part of the story. In the first book you get to see the main issue involving Zanya and her friends, and in this book you get a loot at offshoots of the story. It really brings things together with a better understanding of what is going on. It provides more about the bigger picture of what they are facing.
In this book we get to see Tara's decline, and I think that is is significant to the story. We see how she struggles with her nightmares, her past, and her hope for a relationship with Peter. Her character development is really expanded and goes so much deeper than the first book. Tara becomes so much more complex in this book and it shines a light on the kind of person she really is. It's enlightening and beautiful.
What I didn't like
While I liked seeing things from Tara's point of view, I couldn't help but wonder what was going on with Zanya and Arwan. I think that the book would have been much better if it had been written from both sides of the story including both Tara's journey and also Zanya's journey.
The book was quite short. It felt more like a novella to me. While it didn't make the story lack at all, it didn't feel quite like a full book. I prefer reading longer works. I think that if the story had included both sides of the story as I pointed out above, it would have been best.
Would I Recommend It
Yes. Reading this book is essential to the story being told by the series. It delves in even deeper and gives us a bigger glance at what the main characters are really up against. Tara's character evolves so much in this and it is beautiful to read.
“All that awaited her was terror and death.”
“Her heart shattered, opening a deep wound in a place she didn’t know existed. A place that was tender and fragile. A tiny place left untainted with regret, now in ruins.”
Super excited that we are able to get a glance into what Tara is facing as she is a huge character for this story. It gives so much more background to the story. While reading Mayan Blood I wondered what happened with Tara and Peter as they were not able to help retrieve the stone from Sarian. Well, this is it! And it is so much more than I hoped for. The Interlude is not for the faint of heart, but sooooo worth it!
“It’s funny where life takes you...my life went from miserable, to worse, to free, to lost, and now-”
Have you ever come across a book or series where there's so much to say and yet, you can't express your feelings?? That's me right now with Mayan Blood, Interlude, and Lights of Aurora by Theresa DaLayne. These books are FANTASTIC, but they are ones where you HAVE to read to understand just how epic they are. There's magic, action, romance, and tons of page-turning scenes where I felt I could not get enough of these characters.
Theresa DaLayne knows how to write books that will hook readers from the very beginning. Her writing is smooth and flows effortlessly. I had no problem whatsoever following the plot lines from book to book. Her character development was top-notch! You grow alongside the characters as they face their different, action-packed journeys. Mayan Blood was a phenomenal start to the series and the books only got better and better. While the series starts off in the YA age group, it certainly doesn't stay there, so please don't let that stop you from checking out these books if you don't normally read YA. I have not had a chance to read book 4, Anarchy, but trust me when I say, I will be doing that SOON. Go one-click!!
