Green but for a Season (Captive Prince #2.5) by C.S. Pacat
Green but for a Season: A Captive Prince Short Story (Captive Prince Short Stories Book 1) - C.S. Pacat

And we continue on with the short stories from the Captive Prince trilogy! This short story takes place during book two and follows Jord. It explains how he came to be a part of the Prince's Guard and what he did whilst being Captain. It also touches a tiny bit on his relationship with Aimeric.

 

In short (no pun intended), I liked this story. I liked getting to know Jord a bit more. I also liked seeing him develop further than he was in the books. I will say, however, that I feel that this short story was a bit rushed. I know it's a short story and it's not going to have as much depth as a full length novel. But it just felt choppy in some parts. There was a moment I had to check to make sure that I didn't skip a part because we went from one scene to the next without proper transition. I would have also liked to see Jord and Aimeric's relationship fleshed out more than was in this story, which is what I initially thought this short story was going to be about. I wanted to see their relationship be explored because in the novels, I felt their relationship was hinted to be complex and I just... didn't get that in this story.

 

Still, it's a pretty good read for anyone who is a fan of the trilogy. I think you'd enjoy it even if it's a bit on the short side.

Green Smoothies for Every Season: A Year of Farmers Market-Fresh Super Drinks
Green Smoothies for Every Season: A Year of Farmers Market�Fresh Super Drinks - Kristine Miles This book is a look at using seasonal produce and ingredients to make green smoothies throughout the year. To me, it is not a book for those new to drinking green smoothies, but one for those who want to incorporate more seasonality and more diverse ingredients into a green smoothie routine.
