Supernatural halfling Jane True's not happy. She's been packed off to England to fight a war when she'd much rather be getting busy with her boyfriend Anyan. Unfortunately, Jane's enemies have been stirring up some major trouble and attracting a lot of attention: making it tricky for Jane and Anyan to get any alone time.

Yet another action-packed story in the Jane True series! In Tempest's Fury, Jane, Anyan, and Blondie are off to England in order for Jane to fulfill her new role as Champion.

The Good
I really enjoyed seeing Jane's transformation, especially after so many stories, into a powerful badass chick. Never lacking in snarky, Jane was still able to realize how important she was in this war and the need for her to step up t

I'm done and I'm dropping this series.

Trying to finish the book is a challenge for me.

No more reading about Jane's libido VS her virtue.
I mean...

C'MON!!!! Not every single page/chapter!!

So, nope. NO MORE for me!!!

Thank you for the memories.

**4.5 stars**

Jane has headed to Britain along with Anyan and Blondie to try and stop some new/old enemies. Along the way, she gets to spend some much needed time with Anyan, she gets to do some sightseeing and she gets to learn some much needed history on supes and the new/old enemies they are facing. Unfortunately, there is no way to prepare for what ultimately happens.

FRICK and then some....insert some major curse words and then throw in some more!! Yes folks, I'm talking about the ending if

Hmm... no. Sorry, but just no.

Halfway through the book I had already decided it wasn't my favorite of the series, but it was well on its way to a solid 3. Then it came the last chapter. Contrived is the kindest word I can use to describe it.

It's like she tried to pack all the punch that the rest of the story lacked into one "shocking" and "surprising" last chapter. The quotation marks should give you a clue as to how well I think that worked out. I was even chanting in my head "don't go there, d

No, Nicole. Nooooooooooooooooo.

I've read your blog and understand the change in direction you felt you had to take but the sudden shock of the ending being so abrupt and cliffhangery meant I couldn't rate this book fairly at all to begin with; but with a few days to cool down I think I've managed.

The writing, events and characters are excellent as usual and the dialogue is wonderful; but the end of it is excruciating, especially as it's unexpected given that all of the books in this series have

Review originally posted on my blog: A Book Obsession..

Jane is still relatively new to the supernatural world, so the last thing she ever expected to be was the Champion, someone chosen above all others to fight the good fight against evil. But sometimes fate likes to play her twisted little game and right now Jane's up to bat. She'd much rather be spending time getting to know the yummy Anyan in their new relationship, but when duty calls, someone has to step up to the plate. Unfortunately gett

I'll admit it. I am having serious trouble with this review. All I want to talk about is the ending. I know that's not fair. I can't spoil people. I can't rob them of that feeling I got when Nicole Peeler totally ripped the rug out from under me in the last chapter. Unfortunately, my brain just won't let me move past it. So I must tell you off the bat that the ending to this book is a shocking/ amazing/ horrible punch-in-the-gut cliffhanger. But I won't tell you what it is.

That being said, let's

One of the most WICKED in your face cliff-hangers of all time. And with that, I'll just provide my two favorite Jane quotes from Tempest's Fury:

Once again, we were too late. I was beginning to feel that was our modus operandi, as really bad superheroes: "Too Late To Save Shit! But We Gave It A Go!"

My libido pondered whether there was a subtle way to mime a blow job on a helicopter stuffed full of friends and foes, but my virtue squashed that train of thought like a health inspector might a lamed

I was sooo looking forward to this book. I waited for it impatiently and when it came I set it aside for a lesser read, wanting to savor the foreknowledge that I would be reading a magnificent book. All the prior Jane True books were so good you just tore right through them. Then I made a BIG mistake. First I read a friends review, which went on to say how she hated the way this book ended, and I couldn't help it-I turned to the last page. I know, I know...shame on me, but what I read there shoc ...more

What a heartbreaking ending!!!!!!!!! I can't wait to read the next book in the series :) That's all I have to say.
This is another series that I started, loved, and then got distracted by other shiny books and wandered away from it for several years. I put it on my list for the Finishing the Series challenge this year and I'm so glad I did. I had forgotten how much I enjoy these books. Peeler's humor is snarky, raunchy, and sometimes juvenile, but I always laugh. The books also make me cry as Peeler has no trouble putting her characters through the wringer or even killing them. The covers are cartoony and th ...more

I put the book on hold because I knew it was a cliff hanger, having had it spoiled so that I could make a reasonable choice about whether or not to read it before the final book came out. I'm glad I put it off because it was a rude, manipulative, heinous, insulting cliff hanger - even knowing in advance what it was going to be.

It had no end. None. It just stopped as if she hit her word count and phoned what she had in. It was a massively horrible ending.
But that's not all. The book was BORING.

No spoilers and colorful language abound!

So true story, if I had started reading this series at any other point in my life I'd hate it. Jane's split personalities, her shameless embrace of all things corny as fuck, the angst. I don't even know where to start discussing all the things about this that is annoying, because they simply aren't to me. Something is deeply wrong here folks, I find it all endearing and humorous. This time of year is always a little hectic for me and it's just fuc

I love this series. That said, this particular book disappointed me somewhat.

A big part of what I love about it is how self aware Jane is, particularly how in the early books she realizes that she deserves more even when she's completely wrapped up in Ryu. We're all able to watch Anyan treat her with respect, and see her see it too. It seems like she's lost some of that in this book, though. She worries about whether or not Anyan's feelings towards her have shallow motivations, but her thoughts

I have loved every book about the adventures of Jane True, this one might be my favorite so far! As other reviews have said there is a BIG cliffhanger ending, which I usually dont like, but the rest of the story was Soooo good! I love love love Anyan! Jane says she keeps learning new things about him, and so do we, and that just makes both Jane and I love him more! I really think Nicole Peeler is genius. The whole series... The world, the characters and the nail-biting adventures are written so ...more
This is the 5th book in the Jane True series. It starts out with Jane on a mission to the UK. She is off to do battle with a supernatural threat. Jane think they will be off Blondie will deal with the problem and it will be like a mini vacation. Easy peasy! Well that would not make a very good story. Turns out Jane is up against the Red and White these ancient elemental's who just want to wreak chaos and take over the world. Also turns out this is not Blondie’s fight but Jane’s.

What an ending! I never thought I'd live to read an ending so frustrating as the Fever series!

But..... Seriously?

I'm speach less, and... I'm awed. This book was everything. It was funny, full packed with adventures, sexy, and... Yeah it's just so perfect to read.

But man, I can't shake that ending off.... I I NEED the next book like right now.

Meh. SEMI-SPOILER ALERT I'm not a fan of cliff hanger endings. It seems greedy to me. Like "thanks for reading my book, now wait 6 month to buy the next one to see how things resolve" Absolutely nothing resolves in this book. My advice is to wait until the next 1 or 2 come out and read them together. It'll make a better story. I also tired of Jane's constant goofy inner dialogue. I found myself skimming pages at a time, even the more 'steamy' scenes because it just doesn't feel natural.

The Jane True series is absolutely fantastic in my opinion. I have only a few sentences to say about TEMPEST"S FURY. It is safe to say that I am absolutely devastated by how TEMPEST'S FURY ends. I'm on the edge of my seat waiting for TEMPEST REBORN to come out and hopefully put my broken heart out of its misery.

I want to stop reading this series as it has really become ridiculous. However, I hate to admit that I do kind of still care about the main characters, so I'm going to keep going. At least the author used the word "libido" less in this book than the last one. This time it was "only" 32 times.
Why have my favorite books this year all been the hardest for me to review? This one is just too hard. The best I can do is to say that as usual for Dr. Peeler's books, it had great adventure, lots of new-to-me mythology and a lot of heart.
2,75 stars.
Well the end is just... I didn't like it. It ruined the book for me and I'm not even sure, if I will continue with this series.

Fifth in the Jane True urban fantasy series revolving around a half-human, half-selkie woman and her friends out to save the world.

My Take
Hmmmm, interesting warning about the use of Facebook…!

It's sweet that Jane wants to date Anyan, get to know him. And he does come up with some sweet, thoughtful dates. It's Jane's reticence that drives me nuts and just makes the end worse! I cried so hard. And she keeps calling this warrior "puppy"...too cute! I just love Anyan's T-shirts and that he trusts Ja

These books never fail to entertain. This is twice now that the book ends in a way that slightly irritates me... but in a good way. I'm excited to find out what happens in the next book.
Originally posed at

Jane True is back in action as the reluctant hero in this fifth installment of the funny and popular Jane True series by the wonderful Nicole Peeler. This book picks up immediately following the events of Eye of the Tempest. There is a lot of action, a heaping amount of libido, a little sexing up of the barghest, and a wild cliff hanger. With only one book remaining in this series, Tempest's Fury is our set up for the end.

Jane, Anyan and Blondie have
