Tempest’s Legacy by Nicole Peeter
Available in e-book, mass market paperback and audio book
I never knew sea creatures could be so bad ass while holding on to that cute little innocence that drives photographers wild. The fantasy realm has a new contender vying for the most incredible supernatural creature. Weres and Vamps better hang on to their fangs because, in some cases, the flipper may be mightier…
For those of you who have not yet met Miss Jane True, she is a selkie. Part seal – the rest – all woman, which I think makes her extremely adorable, but do not let your guard down. She is a “do not mess with me” type of gal who will put you in your place, and then stand there wondering how she managed to do it. With the waves driving her strength, there are few opponents who can stop her once the tidal force behind this little woman is unleashed.
Miss Jane True is having quite the tough life lately, her mother is dead, and the new world she recently learned she belonged to is now in another struggle for survival. Someone/something is kidnapping her people and doing who knows what with them. All the community knows is that when they finally locate the missing women, it is only good because they can plan a burial. Jane thinks she knows who is behind all of these kidnappings and murders, but could she really be right? If she is, can they all be strong enough to bring this murderer to justice?
This story has a lot of what other fantasy novels have in them these days. Supes, half-bloods, magic, and sex. The one thing that I did really love about this book, is that although it hints at things at times, there was no real sex involved in this book. A few mentions of naughty thoughts, but nothing graphic…and definitely nothing overdone. I really love vampire and were books, but lately, a trend seems to have started…authors think that we have to have sex mixed with out supes in order to enjoy the story. They could not be more wrong, Nicole Peeler got it right in this book. There are hints of “adult” situations, but we could sit back, love a great, fast paced, gritting your teeth adventure without having to read through soft or hard core porn.
5 stars to Tempest’s Legacy!! LOVED IT!!!!
