That being said, let's go back to the beginning. The story starts with Jane on a mission to Great Britain to help Blondie deal with a new supernatural threat. Ancient elemental entities similar to the underground creature in the last book, are threatening to make a comeback. And unlike the being that imbued Jane with her new fancy ax, these beings are murderous and fierce. Blondie actually hacked up the Air and Fire beings, also known as the Red Queen and the White King, back in the day --when she was the champion of the magic ax. Their pieces were scattered around the world, but now someone is gathering the pieces to put the monsters back together again. Jane, Anyan, and Blondie have to stop it.
It's a cool story arc. It's fast moving and full of action. It takes unexpected twists and turns and it incorporates some familiar faces from past books. All this while continuing to expand the established world building.
The book is really good. I only had one complaint. That was the ridiculous number of near-sex encounters between Anyan and Jane. I was already stretched to my limit before I started the book. While I appreciate the need and desire to keep sexual tension alive, I was just flat out annoyed with all the stops and starts.
Back to the plus side... I love Anyan. Love.Read more ›
I can't believe I'm saying this, but I was really frustrated with how much focus was placed on Jane and Anyan's relationship rather than the actual action and series plot progression. Actually, the relationship itself wasn't the problem as I am a huge fan of the two of them together. In fact, I have been practically salivating for the two to FINALLY get together. And therein lies the problem. Tempest's Fury continued the trend of Jane and Anyan trying to be together, but anytime they started to even remotely get physical some major event would interrupt them. Then they would "fix" that immediate problem and then try again to be together only to have something else happen to muck things up. The pattern continued like that for most of the book, and after the third time I literally yelled at my book saying "Oh come on already!!" To make matters worse, Jane got the brilliant idea in her head for them to take things slow to get to know what another. What? I mean the past few books haven't been enough really? Build up and tension in a book can be a good thing, especially when it pulls the reader further into the story.Read more ›
I know, I know. Tempest's Fury was published almost a year ago, but I have been so busy with my TBR list that it took me this long to finally get to it, and it took me a few days to read it! But that's not because I didn't have the time. It's because I was basically bored for the first half of the book. Well, to be honest, it was the constant "almost sex" between Jane and Anyan that was the worst part. I mean HELLO! It's the fifth book! They should have been bonking already! Multiple times!! Thankfully though things finally got exciting and low and behold, my prayers were finally answered in the second half of the book.
Jane has been chosen to be the Joan of Arc of the supernatural world. A "job" she doesn't even want. After all, she's no hero. Anyan and Blondie are the hero's. But Morrigan wants to raise the Red Queen and the White King, and Jane is the only one that can stop it. Along the way, she has to deal with annoying and medeling Alfar, double crossing spys, her main nemesis, being kidnapped by the rebel leader, and being kidnapped by the so called good guys! That's a lot to deal with, and a battle of this magnitude really puts things into perspective. It helps you to see what's really important in life. And for Jane it's Anyan.
In Tempest's Fury we are finally given the back story of Anyan. We are privy to all of the pain, the sorrow, the accomplishments, and love that shaped him and made him the man he is now. Believe it or not, I actually got choked up reading that part. But nothing prepared me for the ultimate event. At least the sexual part! (Why can't my husband do that??) Nor did I think the ending would be as sad as it were. An ending that may be Jane's breaking point. Thank God I already have book 6!!

It was okay. Not the best in the series. I thought the dragon thing pushed the limits on the story line.Published on September 24, 2013 by T. Devereaux
