Today's Review is on Tempest Reborn by Nicole Peeler
This sixth installment of Peeler's Jane True series was nothing but a disappointment. I usually expect a writers style to evolve and become better with each installment, but with Peeler it just didn't happen. Especially when it came to the sexual tension and dialog between Jane and Anyan. I understand that the series is YA so it has to be pretty PG, but it read more like Peeler was trying to amp it up. There IS some merit to the saying "Go big or go home".
In book 5 our hero Anyan was turned into the White King, leaving Jane devastated. She had just lost the love of her life and her lover. Yes, they finally did the horizontal dance. Finally! After a bit of grieving; where she is pretty much comatose, Jane vows to kill the White King and save him. Then they'll deal with Morrigan.
Speaking of Morrigan, her plan to turn the humans against the supernatural population backfires. Along with Jane's friends, the humans and the Alfar join together and set out to defeat her. Of course many lives will be lost on all sides but, as always, there is a happy ending. Albeit a wimpy one.
I was a faithful follower of the Jane True series up until the fourth book, then my faith began to go down hill along with the series that ended with a big, wet, boring splat. I'm undecided if I'll read any other books by Peeler :/
