Tempest Rising (Mass Market Paperbound)
— From Krys
Like Sookie Stackhouse? So does Nicole Peeler. Tempest Rising is the first of a series following Jane True, a young woman recovering from the death of her first love in Rockabill, Maine. Jane has always been an outcast but she doesn’t know true that is until now. Funny and sweet, sexy and scandalous, Peeler’s first foray into the Trueniverse is satirical and smart and so much fun.
THE START OF A BRAND NEW URBAN FANTASY SET IN SMALL TOWN MAINE WHERE EVERYTHING IS NOT AS IT SHOULD BE...
Living in small town Rockabill, Maine, Jane True always knew she didn't quite fit in with so-called normal society. During her nightly, clandestine swim in the freezing winter ocean, a grisly find leads Jane to startling revelations about her heritage: she is only half-human.
Now, Jane must enter a world filled with supernatural creatures alternatively terrifying, beautiful, and deadly- all of which perfectly describe her new ""friend, "" Ryu, a gorgeous and powerful vampire.
It is a world where nothing can be taken for granted: a dog can heal with a lick; spirits bag your groceries; and whatever you do, never-ever-rub the genie's lamp.
If you love Sookie Stackhouse, then you'll want to dive into Nicole Peeler's enchanting debut novel.
