Publishers Weekly
Snarky selkie halfling Jane True, introduced in 2009's Tempest Rising, plays hooky from learning how to control her paranormal abilities and heads to Boston for a scorching Valentine's weekend with her lover, Ryu, a vampire-like baobhan sith who spends most of his time solving supernatural mysteries. Before their sensual action can heat past simmer, they're attacked by another powerful halfling, this one an ifrit. Soon Jane's dodging fireballs and summoning sea power with her lover and friends. New to the supernatural scene, flighty Jane must grow into her powers to save them all. Peeler's chick lit tone adds sparkle to the most spine-tingling scenes with a style that never strikes a false note, and the seamless plot weaves together Jane's paranormal and personal growth while linking both to the swelling suspense. (July)

I am totally enjoying Nicole Peeler's series about Jane True. I enjoy Ms. Peeler's witty and entruiging writing style. Can't wait to read the next book. :)

You know those series that you read the first book, and you like it ok. So, you decide to reserve judgment until after you've read the second. And then you are really glad you did because it's much better than the first. That was the case with Tracking The Tempest. I liked Jane's character quite a bit more in this one. She still has all the defining qualities that I liked about her in the first book, but add some backbone. She refuses to be treated like a weakling, not matter what the others think of her and her powers. I really like that. I also enjoyed the fact that she is half human actually gave her the insight to be able to understand things the others couldn't. I enjoyed her relationship with Ryu the most. It becomes something other than just physical. I think was really hard for her to come to terms with all of that. I liked that the storyline seems to have more direction. I had a feeling after the first book were it was going to go. But, it's always nice to get that reassurance. I like how much the culprit seems to be working in the shadows, never truly revealing themselves. I'm curious as to what will happen next. I'm looking forward to the next in the series and what direction the story will take!

I have to say this book was the great! I was right there with Jane scared for her when Phaedra and her crew of freaks showed up. I also was screaming with laughter when she fell on her face after an encounter with a certain Satyr. And of course I was totally entranced when Ryu and Jane kept on doing what they do best (this is not a book for kids). This book was non-stop action and great character development. I highly recommend the series.

In Rockabill, Maine hybrid Jane True struggles with learning she is half Selkie. She also tries to understand her new skill as a magic practitioner. However, Jane is also running out of time as purebreds detest Halflings; preferring the Selkie species to be perfectly pure. On the other hand Nell the gnome, Anyan the dog and Trill the kelpie train her on her new skills; though Jane thinks torture is a mire accurate description of their mentoring her. Her beloved Ryu the vampire is on her side though he is in Boston on a homicide investigation. When she decides to visit her vampiric investigator, Jane never expected to become part of an inquiry he is making into Conleth the Halfling Ifrit, who escaped from a Dorchester lab that blew up right after he got out. Ryu thinks Conleth blew up the lab and has become a serial killer especially of Halflings, but Jane finds several other suspects who will not mind the murder of a nosy Halfling. The latest Tempest urban fantasy (see Tempest Rising) is an excellent urban fantasy as the heat is on the heroine (and her lover) in Boston. The story line is fast-paced from the moment the heroine joins her "Impaler" lover in Boston and never slows down as the pair search for a paranormal serial killer. Readers will relish Tracking the Tempest as Jane seems truly to be in the eye of the perfect killer storm. Harriet Klausner

The first book in this series was a great read with a fun plot. I was really excited to read the second book. Unfortunately, it is now just a corny love story about Jane and Ryu with a really loose and slow moving plot surrounding it. I was excited about Jane and Ryu hooking up in the first book, but no one cares any more. I wish the author would tone it down with focusing so much on their relationship because it is so uninteresting. I am still trying to finish this book as it keeps putting me to sleep.

Liked the 1st book. Was not as impressed with book 2, Tracking the tempest. To much on bedroom scenes. Hope the others are'nt as heavy on the sex, don't get me wrong, sex is fine, but had not planned on that much. All she has is sex on her mind.

This is a fairly typical book in a fairly typical supernatural dating series. If you like this kind of novel, you will like this book. If not, you won't.

I love this series and the intrigue in this book was great. There are some full on laugh out loud moments that help keep this an incredibly entertaining series. It's also great to have a flawed, yet kick butt, heroine.

The only thing I didn't like about it was that there were some things during the investigation that were very obvious but somehow the investigators didn't know and I felt that it was too hard to believe that they wouldn't put that together. Other than I enjoyed it very much.
