This exciting sequel did nothing but make me want more of the story. I was sad to reach the last page of the book, hoping that more pages will magically appear. Tempest after discovering who she is, is in the sea fulfilling her duty. I like that Tempest took to her roll quickly and smoothly. She is a fast learner and a great people person. Tempest's character overall is a girl who I love to be friends with. Loyal and strong, Tempest faces a world wind of trouble but not without a fight. The plot line of the book is dynamic. Filled with action-packed scenes, to see Tempest kick-butt is so freaking awesome. Her power and strength that she wields is incredible. Tempest has a great mind when it comes to fighting. She thinks things through and knows her enemies weaknessess. The love interest, I felt, is the best part of this book. Both passionate and fierce, both guys that are tugging at her heart are amazing. For me, I felt passion more for one than the other. If you want to know which, well, your going to have to read this book for yourself. And yes, you will love it. Tempest Unleashed brings a whole new story to the table. Written with great dimension and bold, Tempest Unleashed leaves the reader hungry for more. The flow of the story, feeds into the readers mind, creating a massive world building that no one can resist.

The first book was great and I loved it. So I was expecting a lot from the second one. But throughout the story, Tempest just got on my nerves. She is the worst main character ever. She kept saying she was nothing like her mom, but the similarities just kept stacking up. Also, I didn't like how as soon as she got on land she just kind of forgot that she wasn't single...? She would go, I am not this girl. And that was it. No guilt. It was like those five words justified what she did. And she supposedly loves her family more than anything but it seemed to me that Mark took priority over them. In the first book, I was hoping that the love triangle was over and I liked the way the author wrapped it up, but in this book it was like, Crap! Need another love interest! It just didn't seem authentic to me. Or well-thought out. In the first book, I understood Tempest and why she did what she did. But in this one, she was selfish and immature. And I get the feeling that the author ended the book the way she did to get people interested in reading the third, but honestly, if its written like this one, I probably won't.

In my opinion this book was amazing, the actions and mythology were brought together in a way I had never seen. The love triangle was also an amazing addition, though I didn't like who she ended up with. If you liked the first book than this is a must read!!!!!!!

I enjoyed the first in the series, so I was hoping that life as a mermaid would be a good choice for Tempest. I was also curious to see were this story might go. It's an interesting world the author has created. I was curious how this story would work when we know that at the end of book one, Tempest chose the life in the sea. I wanted to see how this underwater world that was created could function. Oddly, a lot of the time I wasn't sure if the story was under water or not. It didn't help that sometimes Tempest would prefer her legs, but it seemed like they were far below the water's surface. The Selkie kingdom seemed to work in the same peculiar way. Tempest seemed kind of indecisive at time. She wants to finish this battle with Tiamat, but seems content to have Hailana order her around. I figured her to be more of a take charge kind of mermaid. I did find it interesting that she seemed so connected to her human past. Everyone expects her to just be able to let go of it. But, I think the vision of her human family prove that they will always be a part of her no matter how long she's a mermaid. I think the intensity of the end of this book are what make it. Tiamat seems desperate in her attacks, but she's trying to draw Tempest to her. A sunken ship in a great place for a battle! I liked how many pieces there were to this battle. It's not just Tiamat that Tempest has to face, and she has a few of her own friends to think about as well. It was interesting to see how it all played out, and how the story might continue. I also almost put the book down when the love triangle was brought in. The first story hinted at one, but I was so sure that Tempest has made a choice. I didn't like how her human and mermaid sides each seemed to chose someone different. In my mind there was a more obvious choice. I'm glad I stuck it out...even if I disagree with the one choosen. I'm sure I will continue with the story. It's not over yet, and there are still some missing pieces.

The ending of this book left me completely astonished and trully made me hate Tempest completely. All i want now is to read the next book in the series. If you loved the first novel then you will not be let down with the sequel and will only be wanting more.

Tempest Maguire is finding out that the grass is not always greener on the other side. After making the painful but solid decision to leave her life on land and embrace her mermaid heritage in the sea, Tempest is now having doubts that she did the right thing. Life in the mermaid kingdom is not going the way she thought it would: Tempest is constantly at odds with Hailana, the scheming mermaid queen she serves, mer politics are treacherous and she has started having arguments with Kona, her selkie boyfriend. Tempest Unleashed, the sequel to Tempest Rising, takes place about eight months after the first book and is set mostly underwater which is awesome! Deebs’ world building is really cool and I enjoyed reading about the places and creatures she created. Like Tempest Rising, this second book is no fairytale. It is dark with war, death, nightmarish creatures and of course, Tiamat, the sea witch who has gotten even stronger since Tempest last battled her. Tempest is a girl torn in two. When she is on land, she can’t resist the ocean’s pull on her and when she is in the sea, she misses her family and craves to be with Mark, her ex-boyfriend. It does not help that she and Kona are having problems stemming primarily from his wanting to protect her. Tempest, insisting that she can take care of herself, chafes at Kona’s warnings about her hot new trainer: a merman that Kona knows and justifiably hates. There is a huge love triangle involving Tempest, Mark and Kona. Thankfully, Tempest does choose by the end of the book so we are not left hanging! Tempest Unleashed has lots of action and for the romance lovers, lots of kissing! Its fun to see Tempest come into her powers and use them in such a kick butt way. There is definitely more to explore in a third book in the series which will probably come out next year.

I loved the first book, but this seemed like a lot of teenage whining about "I love both of these guys but what do I do"? Blah blah etc. I know Tempest is 17, but come on!? BUT if you loved the first one, then this one HAS to be read. It was a decent book.

Expected More and Was Unimpressed.... Brought to you by OBS reviewer Heidi Tempest Unleashed picks up about eight months after Tempest Rising left off. Tempest is sticking to her decision to live in the ocean and is getting used to her daily life serving the queen, who she doesn’t get along with, and going to see Kona whenever she can. But she can never quite shake her feelings for Mark. But when Tempest is plagued with a feeling that something is wrong at home, she and Kona flee to La Jolla to find out what it is. When they arrive they discover that her little brother, Moku, nearly drowned and is in a coma. As the days pass the doctors are getting less and less optimistic that he will ever wake up. It takes Kona going back into the ocean and bringing back the selkie healer to bring him out of it. Then, her dad informs Tempest that Moku didn’t have a surfing accident, but that it was the sea witch trying to take him. After hearing this, she has no choice, but to return to the ocean and face Tiamat head-on. But when she gets back to her undersea home, Coral Straights, she discovers that it has been attacked by Tiamat and her army. Tempest is also informed that her new trainer, Sabyn helped Tiamat destroy their village. Tempest seeks out the queen to figure out the best way to attack Tiamat only to learn that the selkies were also attacked. When Tempest goes to look for Kona she finds that his parents have died, making him king, if he’s still alive that is! She can’t find Kona anywhere, but finds a note written in his blood telling her where to meet Tiamat. Now she must risk everything, including her life, to save him. Again, I was taken in by the cover. The artwork is breathtaking and I can almost feel the ocean spraying me in the face. Unfortunately, that was about the only thing in this book that took my breath away. I found the first half of the book to be pretty boring. It was basically just showing us readers what a day in life of mermaid tempest was like. We were introduced to the merQueen and shown how she and Tempest don’t get along and were shown some memories of Cecily, Tempest’s mom. I was expecting more romance between Tempest and Kona since he was the man she chose to be with, but it just wasn’t there. In fact, they spent most of their time arguing and Kona’s character still didn’t have any real depth. I hated seeing more wishy-washiness with Tempest when it came to the loves of her life. I hate her grass is always greener on the other side type of mentality when it comes to men. Mark wasn’t good enough when she was with him, but after she was with Kona, he wasn’t either and she wanted Mark back. It annoyed me how easily Mark took her back and the relationship seems unrealistic as how can she really devote much time an attention to it, when he is on land and she’s in the ocean….talk about a long distance relationship. Tempest swears she doesn’t want to be anything like her mom, but she continues to get more and more like her and her rekindling a relationship with Mark is a case in point. Now that she has him will she choose to be with Kona again? You can just never tell with her. I really wanted to like this book and I won’t say that I disliked it, but I was just unimpressed.
