Review

Praise for Tempest Rising : "Dark, magical, and achingly beautiful, Tempest Rising enthralled me from beginning to end... A must read for any mermaid lover and anyone who loves an epic read." ~ Tera Lynn Childs, author of Oh. My. Gods. and Forgive My Fins Among the recent spate of mermaid books this easily stands as the darkest, even though romance remains the main thrust of the story... An exciting-enough story, seriously overdone, which many young readers will love. Kirkus Reviews The underwater world and its residents are truly imaginative creations, providing a vibrant and unique backdrop to Tempest's predicament. ... Fans of paranormal romances looking for something beyond the customary vampire or werewolf might want to catch this wave of fantasy and enchantment. BCCB

Unfortunately, I did not love it, or even like it. It had a good plot, but the characters! Tempest seemed incredibly annoying, naïve and thought she knew everything. It just annoyed the hell out of me when she made everyone feel guilty when she was the one who was wrong. Really...she also kept switching from Kona to Mark. From Mark to Kona. From Kona to Mark. From Mark to...you get the point. It really did annoy me, even more when she said that she loved them both. And (SPOILER NEXT) I can't believe she abandoned Kona when he needed her most. Instead she picked Mark of ALL PEOPLE. Obviously, I'm Team Kona here. (SPOILER END) But even so...I just couldn't fathom how Tempest could be so oblivious, naïve, unforgiving, and smart-mouthed (when she really shouldn't be).

The plot was great and fun and Tempest learned more about her mom, and though she didn't completely forgive her mom, she started understanding just a bit more. She practices her powers more, learning both how to use them and trying to discover how to defeat Tiamat once and for all. I loved how Tracy Deebs described how Tempest channeled her power and I absolutely adore the underwater world she created! It was enchanting how all the pieces came together in their world and I found it just a tad amusing how all the "land-lubbers" didn't have a clue! Except Mark, but he's another story

All in all, it would've been a pretty good book (4 stars?), but I highly disliked Tempest in this book, so it dropped by 2 stars. I feel as if, even though Tracy Deebs did do a good job writing the story, Tempest was too...irritating. And characters are a MAJOR part of my reviews so...it's just how it happened.

Tempest said goodbye to her old life in order to accept her mermaid half and join Kona along with her destiny under the sea. She's the one prophesized to save everyone from the evil sea witch Tiamat. If that wasn't pressure enough, she's also being groomed to take over for the Queen when the time comes. Even so, she's relatively happy with her choice even if she doesn't quite feel right in her skin. But when her brother is hurt and ends up in critical condition, she finds herself racing home. As she gets a taste of her old life, she realizes just how much she missed it all, especially Mark, her old boyfriend who she's never really been able to forget despite her love for Kona. Meanwhile, the war with Tiamat is brewing, and she will stop at nothing to see Tempest destroyed.

After the way things ended in Tempest Rising, I hadn't thought Tempest would have still been so torn between her two lives anymore. However, torn is an understatement as she realizes that giving up her family and life on land wasn't going to be as easy as she thought. In fact it almost seems as the only really thing holding her in the ocean other than the immense draw to the water she feels, is Kona. This is especially apparent once she gets a taste of her old life. Between the constant training and a Queen who wants her to be something she isn't, not to mention the constant threats from the sea witch Tiamat, and this mermaid thing isn't really all its cracked up to be. Yet her sense of duty to her people is admirable, as she refuses to abandon them to Tiamet despite what it costs her.

As much as I had thought the love triangle was no big deal in the first installment, I would have never been able to predict just how much that would change in Tempest Unleashed.

Disclaimer: No spoilers from Tempest Unleashed but read with caution if you have not read Tempest Rising!

Tempest Unleashed picks up eight months after the events of Tempest Rising. The war with Tiamat is brewing as she begins destroying a few sea clans one by one to burden the more powerful clans with resource-draining refugees, so she can finally go after Tempest, her family, and her clan.

I dove back into this beautiful and dangerous underwater world as if I had never left it. The stakes were higher this time and the level of steamy, dangerous, and adventurous scenes went up more than a few notches. Tracy Deebs also introduced a few new side characters. There was a lot more tension with the love triangle and it was even stronger than it was in Tempest Rising, with both Mark and Kona deeply in love with Tempest and she in love with both of them. Even though love triangles are over-utilized in young adult fiction these days, I enjoyed the intensity of this one.

As the events of Tempest Unleashed unfolded and I got closer and closer to the end, I was completely riveted. I felt like I was watching a movie in my head (side note: why are there not more mermaid movies?). I did not want to stop reading so pausing for even a little while was so hard!

And - Tempest finally ended the love triangle! All I will say is that I was a bit shocked.

Seriously, kudos to Tracy Deebs for taking the currently (hehe) less traveled path and for writing a totally bangin' second-in-the-trilogy novel.

Recommended for readers of Tempest Rising as well as fans of young adult mermaid fantasy novels ages sixteen and up.
