More About the Author

Nicole Peeler writes Urban Fantasy for Orbit Books. Her first novel, Tempest Rising, is on shelves now. When she's not manipulating mythologies, she's vexing literature in her day job as an Assistant Professor of English Literature at LSU in Shreveport. Otherwise, she can usually be found belly dancing, sipping Bruichladdich, or listening to blues. But ne'er all three at once.

You can also find her blogging at the League of Reluctant Adults, on facebook as Nicole Peeler, and on twitter as NicolePeeler.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Every time a new author lands it's a pretty intense experience, you read the jacket text, you scrutinize the cover and then you prepare for that opening paragraph hoping that it will throw something out that just grabs you and drags you into the world beyond to enchant you for a few hours.

What Nicole does is present a world of supernatural's that not only appeal to the reader but explain how they hide from modern society as well as rule themselves. It's a Private Investagator type novel but one that as the character learns more about her heritage as well as the unseen world beyond that of normal ken draws a rich tapestry over the veil that really will keep you glued to the last page. Jane is pretty intense and a character that will instantly become a friend to many a reader, yep her bums big, she likes food and above all she admits to her failings. She's not a combat nut, she has to persevere as well as survive in an alien world through wits alone along with a love interest.

It's quirky, it's well written and above all each of the characters adds a new layer or texture to the tale demonstrating that its extremely well planned. I'll eagerly await future instalments of this series as well secretly hoping for bigger roles for some of the characters within as each lures you in with an interesting back story that you'll just want to hear more of. Good stuff Nicole.

Just read this, it was in my big pile of urban fantasy books. Yes its got a big chunk of romance in it but it was still a decent in UF book. I mostly enjoyed it for its humor more than anything else. It was a very quick(5 hours or so) read but I laughed out loud several times so that always gets a good review from me no matter what kind of book it is. Most definately a chick lit book but if you're a guy or a normal UF fan its still a good read thanks to the sharp humor and biting sarcasm of the main character. It also references star trek and does it very well so it got an extra star.

I'm definitely going to read the sequel.

What a lovely cover! I first thought when I was deciding if I should buy this book. And in this case it was a good idea to judge the book by the cover. Jane True is a halfling, not that she knows this at the beginning, and there is a whole lot of supernaturals around that she never knew about! Her mother was a selkie, but she disappeared when she was only 6, something her father doesn't like to talk about, and Jane had always thought she was different for one, she has to swim in the ocean in storm. Jane is a likable charactor, as is Ryu, her new friend, the gorgeous vampire. The story revolves around a mysterious death in the little town, that Ryu investigates. You get to meet lots of interesting charactors in this book including a gnome, and a demon like dog, who is pretty lovable. I really enjoyed this book, was drawn into the fantasy, and cannot wait to read the second book in the series.

Sex, sex, sex, libido, sex. Somewhere in there is, I suspect, a good story trying to get out. The characters were not fully rounded, mostly because all they could think about was sex, especially Jane the main character. I'm not going to bother with the next book.

I liked Tempest Rising. Jane True is a funny, witty character with excellent sci-fi references, like from Star Trek. But she is a bit two-dimensional. She is taking all these amazing preternatural stuff that is happening to her with such ease, it made me wonder if i am extra-sensitive and would react more. Maybe she is just down to earth and not agonising over things she cant change. In a way, she is the complete opposite to Mac from the Karen Moning Fever series, who obsesses every minute about her discoveries (the common thread being that both discover something about their heritage and get launched to a world of preternatural beings).
And as for Ryu, who is sexy and lovely and classy, he left me a bit cold. I like my male protagonists a tad more tortured, sulky and unpredictable. Anyan is far more interesting, in my view, and if i get the next book it will only be to discover if anything romantic happens between him and Jane.
Also, the villain was just not enough villainous. Didn't explain why he thought as he thought, or why he did what he did.
Suspense/plot-wise, it gets a 2. Character-wise and writing/humour/wise a 4, so 3 it is.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Living in the small town of Rockabill, Jane True has never quite fitted in. The mysterious appearance of her mother (buck nekked in a thunderstorm) and her later abandonment of her family is fodder enough for gossip; however Jane was involved in an incident eight years earlier which still ostracises her from the majority of her small community.

Yet there is an explanation for Jane's strangeness; her inability to feel cold and her secret love of swimming naked in the ocean. During a nightly swim Jane discovers a dead body and is quickly informed not only of her own strange heritage (her mother is a shape shifting selkie), but also of the supernatural world which remains hidden from humans.

Soon Jane is hanging out with shape shifters, succubi, gnomes, genies and elemental spirits plus her new boyfriend is a vampire. She's not so much slowly introduced to a new magical world, more clobbered over the head by it when a variety of supernatural beings make an appearance; some of whom are definitely anti-Halflings which is of course what Jane happens to be. Malicious gossip and name calling she can handle; after all Jane was raised in Rockabill, but murder and treachery is a whole new experience in a world where Jane is definitely out of her depth.

Yay to Nicole Peeler; a debuting author who is definitely worth keeping an eye on. "Tempest Rising" is a fantastic, quirky, amusing and highly entertaining fantasy romance with a dark edge. The writing style is engaging, as is leading lady Jane.
