TEMPEST'S LEGACY by Nicole Peeler

After a peaceful hiatus at home in Rockabill, Jane True thinks that her worst problem is that she still throws like a girl - at least while throwing fireballs. Her peace of mind ends, however, when Anyan arrives one night with terrible news . . . news that will rock Jane's world to its very core.

After demanding to help investigate a series of gruesome attacks on females -- supernatural, halfling, and human -- Jane quickly finds herself forced to confront her darkest nightmares as well as her deepest desires.

And she's not sure which she finds more frightening.

This is the third book in the Jane True series, and I couldn't wait to get stuck into it. Though I have to say that I'm not really digging the new UK covers. :( I prefer the gorgeous US covers, they're so cute. So, I've already ordered and pre-ordered the next two books in the series with US covers. :)

Sorry about the cover talk, lol.

Jane is getting on with her life in Rockabill, where she lives with her father, enjoys her job in a bookstore, loves hanging out with her friends, and is continuing her magical training. Plus, she loves going for long swims and her cove is perfect for that.

However, when she finds out her mother has been killed--a selkie who left when she was six years old--her world comes crashing down. Though Ryu is there to help pick up the pieces, it's just not enough. Whatever she felt for him is now gone, and his games of manipulation are getting old. Besides, she's got a huge crush on Anyan. But things in her romantic life take a backseat when she demands to be included in the investigation into the gruesome murders of so many females.

This leads to some very horrifying places--secret labs where unbelievable atrocities are carried out on the women who are kidnapped. And when one of Jane's friends is taken, she's determined to get to the bottom of it. Even if it means putting her own safety on the line.

I really enjoyed this book, and this series. I'm having a great time reading Jane's development and acceptance of this world while facing so many difficult situations. I'm also intrigued by 'Blondie', and since she's on the cover of the next book, I look forward to finding out more about her and why she keeps appearing now.

Oh, and it's awesome to see things with Anyan are finally moving somewhere. Can't wait for them to get together! ;)
