I think the biggest draw for me with this series is the relationships between the various main characters. Cady and Lon are... I don't know how to put it. I love the way they sink into one another and happily lean on the strengths of the other in a crisis. Lon rocks the father thing with Jupe. I honestly adore their dynamic and the resigned acceptance Lon has for Jupe's antics. Cady has the protective, growly mama bear thing for Jupe, but in a cool way. She treats him like he's hers and she'll do anything she can to keep him safe. Those three are like a complex, tangled knot - bound up, tied together, linked by threads only they can follow - and it makes me absolutely giddy to be in their world again.

This time around, the three of them pull Kar Yee, Cady's best friend and business partner, into their orbit and let her experience some of the dangerous joy that comes with hanging out with a mage, a demon, and a teenage boy who doesn't quite have a handle on his knack. Not going to lie, the Kar Yee/Jupe interactions were weirdly hilarious. I love that she can make him fall all over himself verbally with a few well placed endearments.

I can't get enough of these guys and their crazy shenanigans. If you've been following the series, this is a great look at a not-so-ordinary day in the life of Cady and her guys. If you haven't read any of the books yet, get thee hence and START READING! Jupe will charm your right out of your pants if you give him half a chance. No joke.

I am in a big reading drought. Books I should be totally into, I am finding dull. Instead of three books a week, I have been lucky to get through one. Basically, I haven't been my normal book devouring self. Then this novella came along. I pre-ordered this for my kindle quite awhile ago and hadn't forgotten exactly when it was supposed to come out. Then I turned on my kindle, and there it was...the bright and shiny cover beckoning me to read it. I dug right in. Praise the powers that be! I loved this novella so much! When I stumbled upon the first novel in the Cady series, I was impressed. The second one sealed the deal. I love the characters very much, especially the amazing realistic Jupiter. I am pleased to say that "Leashing the Tempest" is a full and exciting short story. There is a beginning, a middle, and a end to the plot in this novella. Lon decides to hire a boat to take Cady and Jup (as well as Cady's friend) out for the day. Jupe wants to practice using his newly discovered talent and Lon is trying to decide if he should purchase his own boat. But there is definitely something fishy going on with this boat and its captain. Pretty soon things go from bad to worse and Cady is forced to use her powers to 'leash the tempest'. Like the two full length novels, this story succeeds not just because of an exciting plotline but because these characters are just so likeable. They are written with such depth that the reader feels like they are real people. Cady is among my favorite urban fantasy/sci-fi heroines and I can seriously go on all day about how wonderful fourteen year old Jupiter is. Jupiter provided several laugh out loud moments here and my husband gave me that 'wow, are you strange' look when I burst into giggles while reading this tale.Read more ›

I had pre ordered this and forgotten it was a Novella when I got it. It did not feel like one. The book is very well written and you just fell right back in with the characters.

It picks up after the 2nd book, they are going out on a boat to test Jupe's new "skill" on Kar Yee. We get Lon, Cady, Jupe and Kar Yee. Originally I was not a huge fan of Kar Yee; however, she is growning on me and I am starting to really like her.

I love the relationships in this book and the humor with the caring in it. Cady and Jupe are so sweet together.

This was short and intense, if you have not read the other Arcadia Bell books, start with Kindling the Moon (Arcadia Bell) and then the second is Summoning the Night (Arcadia Bell).

This has become one of my "keeper series". They are on auto purchase for me, and if you want a different twist on paranormal this is a good one. (I normally don't read demon books, but for some reason I don't mind them in this series). Good writing, excellent relationships and a great balance between characters and plot.

Cady, Lon and Jupe, along with Cady's friend Kar Yee take a 3 hour boat trip so that Lon can photograph whales and dolphins and Jupe can practice his knack on Kar Yee. If only things were that simple, there wouldn't be a story. And no, this isn't a Gilligan's Island story.

The best aspects of this series are the characters and relationships and it's become one of my favorites in the Urban Fantasy genre. And make no mistake; there is plenty of a supernatural element to the stories. Morals play a big part in the series as Jupe learns not only how to use his knack, but also when he shouldn't. This is something Cady has learned to be careful with as more of her own abilities come online. When this author becomes more widely known, I think she'll prove to be competition to the current heavy hitters in this genre.

Cady's relationship with Lon and his teenage son, Jupe really make the story something special. I'm just sorry it's a short novella.
