Tobin here. I have been away a while, but have recently returned to discover that Teagan has not yet released book two of the Enlightenment series. When I asked about the reason for this, I actually learned a new word: Tweaker.
To understand, you must realize that the whole of the Enlightenment series has been complete for some time now. Teagan, however, does not feel satisfied with the books in their current form. She claims she is "tweaking" them. I have seen each manuscript and, although my reading skills are not the best, I do not see the difficulties she claims each script has.
But I can tell you this: FUGUE, book two of the Enlightenment series, will be released no later than the end of the first week of July 2017. Teagan has assured me of this and now I am assuring you. To whet your appetite, I have included below what Teagan calls "a little blurb" about the book:
FUGUE: Book Two of the Enlightenment Series
A full day of interrogation has ended and the stranded Samarean still have no idea how to get back to the war front to help their people. Joss Tobin, the half-human Star Child who is helping them to understand what happened to separate their small contingency from the battlefield, has thus far told them nothing of value and the Samarean interrogator, Jarba, is quickly losing patience. Yes, his story of the Lorim was shocking. But Jarba needs something more than mere fantasy. If her people are to survive, she needs facts and she needs them now!
As the second day of interrogation begins, Jarba realizes her desire for information is not the only thing controlling the halfling’s fate. Tobin is in his own race against time as his body begins to betray him. And the only one who can save him is his mate, his Jess. But the young Star Child is already too powerful on his own. To allow the Joss access to his Jess would surely spell certain doom for the Samarean, if the old tales are to be believed. In this, their most desperate hour, the interrogator cannot risk such a dangerous move.
As Tobin’s story unfolds, the Samarean Prince mysteriously begins trials of his own. With worry and fear for her people plaguing her mind, Jarba can only hope something in Tobin’s words will end the Prince’s fugue and save her people.
I hope you have enjoyed this brief glimpse of the new book and that you will email or tweet Teagan - or me - your thoughts on it.
