Review--E-ARC Tempest's Legacy by Nicole Peeler

Jane True has become proficient in basic magics, confident in herself and her abilities, and happily rooted in Rockabill. Her life is still divided between her supernatural brethren and her human friends and family, but it’s a division she maintains with very little trouble.

Everything changes, however, when Anyan brings Jane news that will force her to confront her dichotomized existence – supernatural females are being murdered, or have simply disappeared.

Jane and Anyan must embark on a desperate search to find out who is abducting these women, and how Jane can be protected from them. Aiding them is Jane’s former flame, Ryu. But can his stated motivations be trusted? And who are the mysterious figures dogging Jane’s and Anyan’s footsteps if not minions of Jarl?

Eventually, the trio stumble upon a secret so huge that it threatens to disrupt the tenuous traditions keeping humanity safe from the supernatural community that has, up until now, been content to lurk in the shadows.

Will they uncover the truth in time to save Jane’s friends? And just how far will Jarl go to protect his secrets?

NetGalley is the best! I was able to get Nicole Peeler's Tempest's Legacy nearly a month early! I immediately devoured it and absolutely loved it! Of course I still have to buy a copy later to add it to the rest of my collection!

It took me a little bit to get back into the swing of things, for it has been awhile since I read Tracking the Tempest, but after a short little bit I was back into the story! And what a story it was! I barely recognize this Jane True from the Jane I first met in book 1. Jane even knows she's changed, she admits to being a whole new Jane even.

She is now a much stronger character, she's not afraid to speak her mind anymore and do what feels right, even if there are consequences. Something she soon learns all about with her decisions.

Bad stuff starts to happen, as the BOC says and it hits too close to home for Jane to ignore and soon she Anyan, Ryu and the others are on the case.

I'll admit I've been Team Ryu at first. The second book made put me in the middle, and now I totally love Anyan! No question about it! Even with this knowledge there wasn't a whole lot of romance in the book. There was one scene in the beginning, won't say who it involves! And the rest was a lot of romantic tension and sometimes that itself can be very satisfying!

I don't want to get too into the mystery element, because there is sort of a shocker that comes along with it so I have to forgo talking about it. Only that there was quite a shocker to it! And the ending was even more surprising! Like seriously jaw dropping! The bad thing about reading ARCs is that the wait for the next book becomes even longer, but still it's a sacrifice you have to make sometimes!!

I love Nicole Peeler's humor in the books as well. There is definitely a lot of snark in it. She might be influenced by her fellow Leaguers too much, Mark especially! That being said, I hope she keeps it up! Both her and Jane crack me up and Jane's friends are very funny as well and sometimes are the inspiration for Jane's humor.

The Jane True series has everything! Humor, action, mystery and a bit of romance! Everything for the urban fantasy girl like myself! If you have not read this series yet, I highly recommend it! The first book is Tempest Rising followed by Tracking the Tempest.

Overall I give the book 5/5 stars! It doesn't deserve anything less!

I received this E-ARC courtesy of NetGalley!


  1. Great Review! I didnt love the first book, but I bought the second, I will def give this series another chance =D I did like Anyan after all LOL

  2. I've yet to read this series but I've heard good things about it. I love a series with humor and a little sexual tension, so I'll have to give these a try. Thanks for the recommendation, I probably would have passed these over based on the cartoon-y covers.
