    Book Description:

    “Living in small town Rockabill, Maine, Jane True always knew she didn’t quite fit in with so-called normal society. During her nightly, clandestine swim in the freezing winter ocean, a grisly find leads Jane to startling revelations about her heritage: she is only half-human.

    Now, Jane must enter a world filled with supernatural creatures alternatively terrifying, beautiful, and deadly- all of which perfectly describe her new “friend,” Ryu, a gorgeous and powerful vampire.

    It is a world where nothing can be taken for granted: a dog can heal with a lick; spirits bag your groceries; and whatever you do, never-ever-rub the genie’s lamp.

    If you love Sookie  Stackhouse, then you’ll want to dive into Nicole Peeler’s enchanting debut novel.”

    My Thoughts:

    Besides the fact that I absolutely LOVE the cover, Tempest Rising is one of the best reads I’ve devoured this year! I’m loving the cover because 1) It’s just gorgeous! 2) It’s different. 3) I’m loving the colors used, and 4) It kind of reminds me of Jasmine Becket-Griffith’s artwork of which I am a huge fan. Sharon Tancredi is the awesome illustrator of the covers for this series. 

    Jane True is totally one of the funniest, animated and entertaining characters I’ve had the pleasure to “meet” on paper. I was completely absorbed in the world that Nicole Peeler has created and couldn’t flip the pages fast enough. Ryu, Anyan, Nell, Tracey and Grizelda are rich characters alongside Jane and others. Between several cultural references and Jane’s inner dialogue I was laughing my head off while cheering her on during her madcap caper of a journey.

    Tracking-Tempest small  I can’t wait to read the next book in the series, Tracking The Tempest which is slated as a spring/summer 2010 release from Orbit
