“Come back,” was all Anyan said, holding me even closer even as I knew he was letting me go.  “Come back to me, Jane.  And hurry…”

I can not go into too much detail on this book, because it will spoil things for you. But I will tell you this—Anyan wasn’t lost to us at the end of Tempest’s Fury. Jane’s going after him, UFC style. She has the backup of everyone near to her. Speaking of everyone…

When I began reading this series, I said Jane belonged with Ryu. A friend told me to keep reading. I did, and completely agree with her now, but you have just got to love someone who has the label of Baobhan Sith. Raise your hand if you have not thought, at least twice by now, “Luke, I am your father.” Anyway, pop culture aside, Ryu is a lovable character with just the right mix of badass and sex appeal. Nicole Peeler paid homage to those of us who have been Ryu fans since the beginning and his presence definitely takes the edge off of Anyan not being there.

Anyan…wow. I really can’t say anything because any details are spoilers. I will let this little tidbit go: You’re going to need a brand new, shiny, Costco-sized box of tissues before you open the cover of Tempest Reborn. Either that or your sleeve better be super-absorbent. Peeler’s humor is on the mark, as always, but she does not say goodbye to Jane’s world without making us cry first.

Anyone familiar with the process of forging steel knows that to get the strongest end-result, the steel has to withstand fire. That’s Jane. She comes out fighting and, yes, she’s breakable but she also knows she’s got to win. Jane is one of the most admirable heroines in the urban fantasy universe and at the end of this book I wanted to high-five her.

Tempest Reborn was so worth the sleep I lost. I’m thankful for experiencing Jane’s journey, getting to be a part of her world and for Peeler “fixing” things for us. I can’t wait to see what she has in store for us next.

      Oh yeah. No snark was held back in the making of this book – so there will be laughs. But there are tears too. Already, I’m putting this one in my top ten of 2013.

    The first thing I did after I fangirled all over Nicole Peeler was to tell her how she killed me with the ending of Tempest’s Fury. To quote a friend, she needed to “fix this shit!” I knew she would. Now I can’t wait to get my hands on it and see how.

    Oh, I’m still pissed that Candace got to read Reborn before me. Thank you for though for not putting any spoilers in the review. That’s like someone telling you what your present is right as you are opening it.

    Neener neener neener.

    Dr. Peeler rocked this so hard. I am fangirling like a boss over this one.

    I’m not caught up with the series, but your review really makes me wish I were! Good job with not revealing anything in the review yet still making me want to read the book.

    • candace says:

      My pleasure, Amy. No pressure, but you need to get caught up with this series. Tempest Reborn is, IMHO, one of the must reads of the year and by proxy, makes the entire Jane True series must read.

  5. Jessica@a GREAT read says:

    Awesome review!! Totally psyched for this book, although I have been totally psyched since I finally read the one before this about a month ago! Cannot wait to see how it all ends and now I have a bit of anxiety since you’re telling me to get a box of tissues! Thanks for that. 😉

    I love this series as well as everyone else and look forward to seeing the epic finale! Once again, great review!
