Tracking the Tempest begins four months–and one eyebrow sacrificed to magical training–after the close of Tempest Rising. During that time, Jane’s been busy honing her supernatural powers and enjoying her newfound sense of confidence. Rockabill may not yet be heaven, but she’s realized it’s home. Valentine's Day is fast approaching, and Ryu - Jane's bloodsucking boyfriend - can't let a major holiday go by without getting all gratuitous. An overwhelming dose of boyfriend interference and a last-minute ticket to Boston later, and Jane's life is thrown off course.But Ryu’s best laid plans inevitably create more upheaval than even he can anticipate, and Jane winds up embroiled in an investigation involving a spree of gruesome killings committed by a being of tremendous power . . .

. . . who, much to Jane’s surprise, happens to be another halfling.

I’m starting this review off letting you know that I’m TEAM ANYAN all the way.

Love the fun world that Nicole Peeler has created with her Jane True series. Jane is your average, lovable, girl next door but now she finds herself in the middle of the fae world and its problems. She’s learning as she goes since she just found out a few months ago (in book one, Tempest Rising) that she is part fae.

Jane is a total bookworm and even works in a bookstore so when she meet her now boyfriend, the sexy vampire, Ryu she couldn’t believe that someone like him would want her. Ryu has been pressuring Jane to make a decision about the future of their relationship. And he drives me nuts with this and the way he calls her babe. UGH

Tracking the Tempest starts out with Jane wondering what Valentine plans Ryu has in store for her… – check, plane ticket to visit him in Boston – check,  hot sweaty monkey sex – check, fae issues that almost gets Jane killed – check.

This time around the danger is a halfing that ends up stalking Jane wanting to make her is love bunny and take over the world. So we have blood, action and a tense relationship atmosphere between Jane and Ryu. Then throw in the fact that we get a great deal of Anyan in human form. YAY.

Anyan is helping Jane learn to use her fae magic when Ryu just wants to keep her safe but keeping her out of the action but Jane won’t have it. I love how Anyan wants to protect Jane by teaching her how to protect herself and not treat her like a sexy bunny with no brain like Ryu does. Yeah I’m being a bitch about Ryu but like I stated in the being I’m for Anyan all the way and Ryu just bug the crap out of through this whole book.

I enjoyed Tracking the Tempest just a little more than Tempest Raising and I can only hope that same will be said about book 3, Tempest’s Legacy which I plan to start next week.

I coexist with my husband of 15 years, our 11-year-old son and two chilled cats in the Deep South.

After 17 years I've finally finished my BA in English (no I do not want to be a teacher). Before majoring in English I would not have touched anything labeled "classic", but I have enjoyed a few along the way in my college career.

While I hated to read growing up, I am now an avid book reader and audiobook listener. I love rejecting reality one book at a time. I only read fiction within my favorite (at least to date) genres which include: most romance (paranormal, contemporary, D/s, BDSM, M/M)Urban Fantasy, and a few YA (mostly PNR or UF from favorite adult authors, but I'm slowly stepping out of my comfort zone after enjoying a few contemporary YA novels in adolescent literature class I took).

  1. I loved the first book, and I have this one waiting on my tbr pile- I just need to get to it! The book really surprised me, because normally urban fantasy isn’t my thing, but I so love the covers so I gave it a shot. It might be time to get to book 2!!
