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!!

To my disappointment it seems the author has gone in a different direction with this book. I`m not sure if she`s trying to get a new kind of readers but the way I see it is that she`s made a strong heroine into a weak one and that makes me so sad. It also seems most of the book is about how Jane and Anyan can`t seem to find a quiet moment - I don`t think I`ve ever seen so many coitus interruptus in a book - and it steals attention from the interesting part of the book; the solving of the crime/mystery.
It wasn`t just Jane who`d been through a personality change. Anyan also went from being nice and supportive to being some kind of cheesy guy who talked about how he wanted to smack Jane. Huh? Did I step into 50 Shades or something?
I bought the book just after it was released and was SO thrilled when I could finally read it. I must admit that I still haven`t read the last couple of chapters. I just couldn`t because Weak Jane wasn`t my cup of tea. The reason why I`m writing this review is because I`ve had all those friends I coerced into reading the series ask me what the bleep I was thinking. They weren`t happy with this last book either. So I figured someone should warn new readers that they may find a new kind of Jane and Anyan in this book and not the ones they started out with.
I`m glad to read the reviews and to find so many positive ones because it means that some people can keep enjoying this series that started out so well. I`m just sad I`m no longer one of them. I truly wish I were because the series started out so incredibly well.
Review: Man, I love Jane. I am her in so many different ways, that I can't help not love these books. She is a nerdy, short, clumsy, and awkward. Yeah who isn't like that ;). Along with her boyfriend, the half dog half human, Anyan, who is pretty much the ideal man. Their relationship developed in this book, and I enjoyed seeing them go back and forth. (They should have just found a wardrobe).
The plot is stunning as usual. The time they spend in Europe (They are not just relegated to London) and the added political tension that is SO europe adds originality without compromising the "Jane True" brand.
I really like Jane's growth. She has remarkably grown into herself, confident and mature. She was never "bratty" like many woman in UF is portrayed as, but she is still youthful and fun ("ketchuped my tater tots"--Ms. Peeler, I love your lines!).
I honestly struggled with this book in some ways because, unlike the other books, the main plot moved slowly. Yes, there was a lot of action and a lot of side plot development. But I really wished we saw more into the Morrigan/Jarl plot than the factions fighting.
I am kind of disappointed in the end. If you decide to read forward, just know this is a pretty major spoiler. (view spoiler)
This is one of my favorite series, and it is undoubtedly moving up in ranking of my favorite series. If you want a good introductory series into the UF world, the Jane True is a terrific series for everyone.
Sex: Hot sexy scenes!
Violence: There is tons of action and waving of axes around. and Blood. But as this is a light UF, it's not gruesome.
Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
Series rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars
Standing there, I felt almost overwhelmed by the room. It was the ultimate library, heaven for a girl who considered herself a strong contender for the ultimate reader.
"Do you like it?" Anyan asked, his voice teasing. Looking up at his iron-grey eyes, I realized I was beyond words.
In response, I could only moan.
I was pretty sure I'd just had a nerdgasm.
Next Book: TBA--but it is the 6th and last book of the series! I hoping it comes out soon!
