Review: Interlude by Sarah Godfrey + Victoria DeRubeis

The Marionettes of Myth Saga #2.5
Author: Sarah Godfrey, Victoria DeRubeis
Released Date: October 2013
Publisher: Self Published

In this thrilling novella set after the events of “Fracture the Spider’s Web”, darker things lurk outside the city.

Before Ave and Elliot met the three siblings in a series of events that would change everything, they operated a superhuman detective business. Finally, with the first break they’ve had since the train wreck began, Ave and Elliot have a chance to take on new cases, and someone wants to join them.

The newest mission tells of strange grinding noises and disappearing machine parts during the dark October nights of the sparsely populated oil country in rural Pennsylvania. A promise of good fun. But, as Yuuhi says, there has never been a case that has gone as expected, and there’s never been a case that has ended well.

Set a month after the collapse of the overpasses, “Interlude” shows the unwinding of events through the eyes of other characters and boasts the usual quirks and laughs of the cast – plus a twist of horror.

     I was originally planning to read Interlude over Thanksgiving Break. Then I changed my mind and essentially decided to read it while waiting to find out another lovely required reads assignment, which literally drowned me in a pile of book trouble last week. e_e
     (I managed to finish Interlude during Advisory. It lightened my load a bit. Though I prefer carrying thousands of virtual books over 3 heavy ones all day around school. :p)
     Oh, and let's just say I wasn't exactly planning on making the authors wait until December for the review if I finish the book and schedule the review early... therefore, with a few tweaks here and there, the review for Interlude occupies the last spot for early November... :3
     This is like a version of the chewpacabra Gulliver/Frankenstein-sized in a witch's house from Hansel and Gretel, only made of metal and feeds on fear, and a creepy read for Halloween. Ironically I did finish on Halloween... night. Either way, it was a lot of fun trying to guess what it really was.
     Unfortunately, most of my virtual notes contains of guessing.
     Out of curiosity, did Carmi and Jason switch brains or something (oh gee, that's making it sound like Invasion of the Body Snatchers...)? They seem to have similar personalities now... O_o
     But Interlude seems to be going in the direction of a new story arc (though the characters from the first two books are still the same... at least in main, so it's not a spin-off) leading to the third novel, and I kind of think that I might like it better than the first two (oh hey, that's kind of rare. O_o).
