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 when 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.

“From small-town hijinks to otherworldly intrigue, this is a fun start to a new series...” (Locus on Tempest Rising)
The world created By Nicole Peeler is rich and filled with a variety of interesting characters. Jane's character grows even more and I can tell that this sory is building to something great. I look forward to the next book.
I almost missed this book because of the cover on the first book. And the voice of the reader being so soft and young sounding. I quit the first book in the middle of the first chapter. I am so glad that I went back and finished the first book because the second and third was so good can't wait for the forth book in this series. Book 1 and 2 have a great balance between romance and action. This book was great but It needed a little more Romance
Say something about yourself!
i guess seeing the mutilation of bodies but that is realty in the life we live in and it was a great part of the book.
i was very angery at the way jane treated riyu. yelling and cursing when he has never done that to her not even in anger and physically attacking him.
i hate jane, i like dog boy but it makes me wonder if later on in the series, it won't show her actraction is because he lives in her town. riyu's character showed in many different ways. how she set on not leaving the town.
Great characters, heroine could be a little less whimpy but why oh why the total overkill with the gore?!?! Half really would have painted a very clear picture.
Reviewing Romance & Urban Fantasy
ane's world keeps sucking me in with every book. Tempest's Legacy is even better than the last two books. The reason might be that we get a lot more of Anyan this time around.
Anyan comes back to town after being gone for two months only to give Jane some bad news. Jane being up step that she hasn't seen him for so long and now he is bring her the horrible news, she goes off on him. Later she apologizes for shooting the messenger.
True to Anyan's caring nature he forgives her and reluctantly lets her join his and Ryu's investigation into some horrible crimes that has taken place. Speaking of Ryu, he is a real douche bag in this one. If I wasn't team Anyan before I am now. I would totally find if we never saw Ryu again after this book.
But I think our days of a love triangle is over and thank goodness for that. But I think Jane has a long road to go with Anyan. I think she is the one that will have to seduce him. Not that he's not interested but that he is either too shy or thick headed to know what to do with Jane. But it's safe to say that he doesn't see her as a little girl like Jane always thought he did.
To sum up Tempest's Legacy - Ryu, bye bye. Hello Anyan. Jane learns some family secrets that will sure to make for interesting times in the books to come.
Fans of "lighter" Urban Fantasy stories will love Jane and her world.
Still didn't care for the narration so I'm glad that I have the rest of the series in paperback. Because I can't take Anyan's voice from the 12 year old sounding narrator if sexy times are coming.
must read: darynda jones, Karen moning, Ilona Andrews, kim harrison, gena showalter, Karen chance,patricia briggs,jeaniene frost ,L taylor,
I would recommend this book to everyone! You need to start at the beginning of the series. The characters are different, i love the different type of beings.
