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 while 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.

Tempest’s Legacy by Nicole Peeler

Just a few weeks after the previous installment in this series, Jane is home in Rockabill, and things are relatively normal.  She’s getting used to her supernatural side and training to better control her magic and defend herself.  But all that changes on a dime when it’s discovered that female supernaturals are disappearing, and it’s about to all hit closer to home.

But…  This probably has more to do with my personal preferences when it comes to books than it does with the quality of writing or story itself, but I began to get bored partway through.  Jane’s learning more about her magic and the supernatural world around her, and while it’s interesting, she’s becoming harder to relate to.  Plus, there was just a whole lot of time spent practicing her magic.  Fortunately, when things picked up again, they really picked up.

The Verdict:  Tempest’s Legacy by Nicole Peeler is quite a bit darker than the rest of the series so far, but it’s not so graphic in that arena that I felt like I should find something else to read.  The evil supernaturals that Jane has been up against so far have stepped up their game, and they’re behind the string of disappearances of pure supernaturals and some halflings, all of whom are turning up in some pretty horrific laboratories.  The so-called research is in reproduction, so they’re being subjected to surgical and sexual abuses, all of which really have no scientific purpose.  It’s really just sadism in a lab coat, and Jane and friends are trying like hell to get to the bottom of things and save the ones they can find.

On the love front, the relationship between Jane and Ryu takes a more serious turn as well, but not like I expected.  While Ryu clearly wants Jane in his life as permanently and fully as possible, Jane herself is second-guessing things.  She very much cares for him, but she’s beginning to question the purpose of their relationship and Ryu’s feelings for her.  At the same time, her crush on Anyan is growing (yay!), but whether they make a go of it remains to be seen.

Tempest’s Legacy is an interesting continuation of an already fascinating series, filled with lots of mystery, plenty of magic that we’re just beginning to understand, some dark turns and some tempered romance, and plenty of need to grab the next book in the series as quickly as possible.
