Book Review: Tempest Rising by Nicole Peeler

Mass Market Paperback: 368 pages
Publisher: Orbit; Original edition (November 1, 2009)

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.
.........................................................................................................................

To sum up my thoughts in one word....WOW! This book is awesome. This was a great introduction to all the characters. Jane has some serious self confidence issues but by the end of the book she is a much stronger person. Ryu is a bit of a smooth operator. It seems like he gets what he wants pretty quickly and I can see that in the future he will probably piss me off. My favorite character is actually Anyan. I am sensing a love triangle in the works. Definitely onw of the more interesting reads so far this year. I can't wait for the next book to come out so I can devour it :)

5/5
