Rating: C
Narration: A

Jane's not happy. She's been packed off to England to fight in a war when she'd much rather be snogging Anyan. Unfortunately, Jane's enemies have been busy stirring up some major trouble-the kind that attracts a lot of attention. In other words, they're not making it easy for Jane to get any alone time with the barghest, or to indulge in her penchant for stinky cheese.Praying she can pull off a Joan of Arc without the whole martyrdom thing, Jane must lead Alfar and halflings alike in a desperate battle to combat an ancient evil. Catapulted into the role of Most Unlikely Hero Ever, Jane also has to fight her own insecurities as well as the doubts of those who don't think she can live up to her new role as Champion. Along the way, Jane learns that some heroes are born. Some are made. And some are bribed with promises of food and sex.

After finishing Tempest’s Fury I was furious. My review went like this…

Best part of this book was the narration. That’s it. That’s the only good thing I can say about it.

Oh and FINALLY getting doggie style. Geez. All that freaking build up was pissing me off. TWO books of it and once it finally happened I didn’t care anymore.

I’m not sure if I’ll read the last book. I’m just so bitter on the series right now. I might come back after a few months.

NOW that I’ve settled down and thought about the book I’m ready to talk about it.

Jane gets to take a trip across the pond to Great Britain but it’s no vacation. While she and her libido would love nothing more than to hold up in a posh hotel room with the bad puppy, Anyan, tasting wine and stinky cheeses and doing it doggy style they are on a mission.

I’ll stop right here and say that I miss the fun and light feel of books 1 & 2. Jane and the group have been thrown into some serious and dark places since book 3 and it only gets darker. Sure there’s still some funny and snarky moments but I guess with the gang being away from Rockabill the feeling of the series is definitely different. And the whole creature thing and Jane’s connection to it has me going uh?!

So the things I did like about Tempest’s Fury is that we get to know Anyan on a personal level. Like his history and how he feels about Jane. I really think Anyan and Jane make a great couple. It took so long to get them there and I wish the two could really catch a break and just be able to have a quiet weekend getaway. Maybe after they save the world from the Red Queen and the White King.

Now I’m off to start the audio of Tempest Reborn and I can’t wait to see how Peeler brings this series to an end. Especially after that (I saw it coming) cliffhanger.

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. Ouch! I love Kristine Hvam, but I kind of relieved that I don’t have to go back and pick up this series again, I was planing to read it to catch up to the change of narrator.

    My sister has been hounding me to read this series. Now I’m not sure whether I really want to or not.. :/

      I really enjoyed books 1-3 but then the series took a turn (for me). Others have loved the series til the end. I just thought that the feeling of the series changed too much for my taste. You might enjoy it.

      It’s a shame that once the series got a GREAT narrator that I lost the love for the story. LOL
