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 rather tricky for Jane and Anyan to get any alone time. Catapulted into the role of Most Unlikely He...more

Heads up: Potential spoilers for those of you who have not read Books 1-4!

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...more
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...more

**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...more
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.
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...more
Jen (Red Hot Books)
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...more
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...more

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
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.

What a heartbreaking ending!!!!!!!!! I can't wait to read the next book in the series :) That's all I have to say.
I love this whole series,
Jenna Lyday
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...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....more
I really enjoyed the series until I was half way thru book 4. Then it went down hill. And Tempest Fury rolled down the hill even faster.
The fifth book in the series, I found very disappointing. The ending is a cliff hanger that left me felling cheated and saddened. There are too many new characters added that it dilutes the story.
Anyan finally reveals a part of his life shedding light on who he is but still leaves him still shrouded in myth and mystery. This is why I gave it 2 stars instead of 1...more
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

$hit $hit $hit $hit $hiiiiiiit! I did NOT see that coming!

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 want...no I NEED the next book like right now.

Sorry, I'm unable to articulate a better review. You'll be more sympathetic when you rea...more
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.
I am sad to report that I didn't actually finish this book--which I means I chose not to finish the series. I could make this a really long-winded "report" on why I decided to stop reading this series, but honestly, I don't even want to.

So, let's keep this long story very short. Let me first say, that this series had a lot of potential. There was an underlying possible romance that could have been incredible. In fact, after the first silly, tawdry affair of Jane's was over, I felt like the actua...more

Motherf***er!!!!! I do not say this word lightly but it was the first thing that came to me when I finished reading this book..

What a clusterf*** ...seriously...that ending is heartbreaking and awsome and sad and shocking and did I say totally awsome ...

Beautiful ...I am dying to know what happenes next...seriously counting the days until the next book..wow

4.5 stars
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.
OMG what just happened? What an ending. I cannot even write a proper review. I am too shaken and I have to wait a whole year for the final book.
Page (One Book At A Time)
Ok, so 5 books into the series seems like a strange time to introduce a whole lot of history. But oddly enough it worked well in this book. I don't think the chain of events would make a whole lot of sense without it, and it didn't need to be introduced before now.

Jane's character has grown tremendously throughout this series. She's gone from learning about who she really is to truly beginning to accept her role as champion. She may think she's not the right person for the job, but she's willin...more
This book was also a favorite for all the action in it. We see a ton of fights, albeit mini ones, throughout and Jane is kicking some a** in this book. She has a confidence in herself that has finally settled in and I enjoyed seeing that side of her. She also manages to stay herself by still having doubts about her role in the grand scheme of things. I like a main character who grows throughout a series and Jane True definitely does that.
I also enjoyed seeing more of Anyan in this book, as well...more

I have been waiting for this book for about 6 months too long. I adore Peeler's books. They make me so very happy. Tempest's Fury has been on my mind since January. Now I must lie in wait for another year for the final book. Le sigh.

In book five Nicole Peeler sets us up for the final battle. Jane and co. have traveled to Britain where old enemies, the Red and the White, have resurfaced. Allying with the supernaturals on the other end of the pond Jane goes in pursuit of said baddies while simult...more

Review courtesy of Dark Faerie Tales.

Quick & Dirty: Sometimes saving the world takes a magical ax and sometimes it takes getting opposing sides to join up.

Opening Sentence: It was times like this I wished Hallmark made a line of “So your supernatural daughter is going off to fight a supernatural war” cards, because I certainly didn’t know how to say that to my father.

The Review:

Crawling into Jane True’s world in book 5 was relatively painless. This story is rich with characters back story an...more
All Things Urban Fantasy
Bubbly, witty, and libido cranked to eleven, Jane True is my kind of hero. Though I missed reading EYE OF THE TEMPEST, I had no trouble catching up with both Jane and her furry leading man. TEMPEST’S FURY is definitely my favorite book of the series, shadowing Jane as she starts a new relationship and saves the world… more or less in that order.

While many urban fantasy heroines find themselves in the position of being heroes, Jane is the first one I’ve read who has time to anticipate this role b...more
Amanda Croley
Not my most favorite of the Jane True series.. I think Peeler read the Fifty Shades books before writing Tempest's Fury because of all the kinky sex references. Jane is teamed up with Blondie and Anyan to fight the war against evil. Not only does she underestimate the enemy, but she and her team must rely on surprising allies to complete the mission.

Blondie the original was once the champion who fought the Red Queen, and the White King 400 years ago and defeated them with the ax...more
