Luckily for Jane, those who've given up on Anyan do not include those closest to her. Defying The Powers That Be, Jane and Company form their own crack squad of

This book literally could not come out fast enough especially after the horrifying, heart wrenching cliffhanger of Tempest's Fury! In unsuspecting moments, my mind would wander about I would think about how Jane could possibly fix things and if there would be a HEA for this last book of the series or would NP be cruel?

Hopefully, you've read through Tempest's Fury or this review is not going to make a lot of sense but just to try to catch you up to speed: Morrigan, an evil Alfar, joined with an o

A copy of Tempest Reborn was provided to me by Orbit for review purposes.

*Spoilers ahead. And cussing. In case you have sensitive ears or whatnot.*

Tempest Reborn wastes no time in diving right into the story and right where Tempest's Fury left us all in the lurch. Jane's boyfriend Anyan is still trapped in the White Dragon but Jane is still the champion and still responsible for stopping the Red and the White, even if that includes killing Anyan in the process.

I didn't like where the 5th title went with the story arc, and while this one fixed the problem, it wasn't really much better. Dr. Peeler's writing style has evolved since Book 1, but not for the better. The story arc - especially in this title - became far too melodramatic for the genre, and the writing too pretentious. There are British idioms sprinkled throughout, for example, presumably as a reminder that Dr. Peeler has spent time in the U.K., since they're not relevant to the story (yes, ...more

It has been eight days since I finished this series. I haven't read anything since, I've been avoiding my lap top and by proxy avoiding writing this review. It has taken binge watching Star Trek and Pride and Prejudice to pull me out of this slump. You see, I was not mentally prepared for this to be the final installment of the series. The plot indicated that it was in fact the end, but I read the synopsis several times over and held out blind hope

Ok.. This was such a waste Of my time. I'm sorry, but this book is just... Bluuuuh.

If it wasn't the last book of this series, I would've been really pissed, but as it is, I'm glad it has come to an end, although not a dignifying end.

Where to begin?!


One, the HEA. I'm a sucker for HEAs

Two, none of my favorite characters died.

Three, it didn't drag out the events. No much anyway!

Cons, (From my POV)

I loved the earlier books in this series, but wasn't as keen on the 5th book and this one just didn't feel all that great. It seemed shallow and there were too many asides and cultural references which are really going to date it. After waiting for Jane to get together with Anyan all they do is have sex, which isn't even that interesting to read about, I do get tired of 'love of a lifetime' relationships that seem totally based on what happens in the bedroom as the characters don't ever seem to ...more

After the soul stomping ending of the last Jane True book, I was ready for this book to sweep me off my feet and continue the wild ride from page one. Let me warn you now, it doesn't do that. In fact, for the first 90+ pages, I found myself struggling to get through the book. There's a lot of quiet misery, which I understand. But there is a huge amount of time devoted to existential ideas and ideology inside the world building. I found myself asking What happened to the characters I love so much ...more

So many series are ending lately, and Nicole Peeler's Jane True series is one I am sad to see go, but I felt like Nicole did a superb job of ending it! I can still remember when I first stumbled upon this series. I was at Borders--sob!-- and I saw Tempest Rising in the science-fiction/fantasy section and first thought it was a YA book due to the cover. I read the back of the cover and thought it sounded pretty good and was totally blown away with it! Now here we are 6 books later and the series ...more

Tempest Legacy still reigns supreme as my favorite Jane True book, but Tempest Reborn was a nice end to a compelling series. This book is packed with action and some nice scenes between Jane and Anyan, but it did get a little convaluted with all the alchemy and mythology explanations. I found my self skimming over these sections so that I could get back to the main story faster. Most of the explanatory sections were towards the beginnin

In the sixth and final installment of the series I once adored, Jane True shines brighter than ever. In the interest of full disclosure, I should mention that I’d lost some of my love for her in the last two books. I felt that Peeler was tired of Jane and she made me tired of her, too. But this time, the old Nicole Peeler was back and I could tell how much she enjoyed writing this conclusion.

Tempest Reborn picks up exactly where the last book left off. Jane has suffered many losses and she’s des

I wasn’t going to bother with a review of Tempest Reborn. And the only reason I’m writing this review is for Marcela from The Bookaholic Cat. She asked me on Twitter if I was going to write a review because she was curious about 2 star rating (which is really more like 2.5) on Goodreads. So here goes my quick thoughts on the ending of the Jane True series.

Review courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy

The first two books in the Jane True series were some of the very first adult Urban Fantasy I read after Sookie, and as such, I have a bit of a soft spot for Jane. However, soft spot or not, TEMPEST REBORN was an easy to read amalgamation of action and humor, with sexy and tender moments thrown in for good measure. Starting right where TEMPEST’S FURY leaves off, we’re thrown directly back into it all, the result being that from page one, I was hard pres

I was so terribly sad to see the end of the Jane True series. Having said that, I must say she went out with a BANG. Our beloved little half human, half selkie heroine was born to be just who she to recharge her energies by swimming in the ocean, able to love with her whole being, unwilling to let the man she loves be captive to the white dragon evil that has been reborn to the Earth. With more and more deaths happening around her it's time for Jane to embrace her calling as Champion ...more

I didn't realize that this book was the last in the series, it made me sad to learn that. For the most part I have really enjoyed reading them, looked forward to getting my hands on a new book. However I found this book to be tedious to get through, could only manage to read 50 pages at a time before switching to a different book, not the usual for me. In fact, had this been book #1 or #2 in the series I would have dnf'ed it.

I can't beleive how disappointingly aweful this is. I just can't get past the 'Universe' character. The 'Creature' was bad enough, but these ever-larger Deus Ex Machina are such lazy devices to use in a plot.

This was a cute, sassy little series at the start but has seriously lost it's way. I really get the feeling that the author didn't know where to take this and has gone all Giain Zen on our backsides - it's very silly.

And I can't follow the strange explainy philosophy about the Universe int

The series is finally over. It ends pretty much exactly as you imagine it will, a bunch of deus ex machinas and happily ever afters, difficult and interesting choices magicked away, and no real consequences for what should have been really momentous stuff. And a lot of fairly dull sex, including some in dream sequences. Whatever.

While Tempest Reborn was better than the WTF fest that was Tempest Fury and I'm beyond thrilled that Dr. Peeler was true to her word and fixed the frak out of the mess she made, I still wasn't completely satisfied with the finale to the Jane True series. That being said, I did really like it. I just wanted less alchemy and Red/White weirdness and more Jane snarkiness.
3.5 stars The ending was too pat. I like an HEA but this was too much. Full review to come.

Sixth and last in the Jane True urban fantasy series revolving around Jane, the champion who's lost her love.

My Take
I was somewhat afraid to read this---I was worried about Anyan and if Jane could get him back after events in Tempest's Fury , 5!

I was a bit disappointed that Peeler didn't include her usual Jane-isms against/about seals. And I was disappointed with the universe popping in to help out. It felt like a cheat, an easy out.

Actually there were a lot of things I was disappointed in, pri

Tempest Reborn starts exactly where Tempest's Fury ended (and yes I'm still not pleased with that cliffhanger ending). Jane is reeling because her lover Anyan has been turned into the White and has flown away with the Red. Together with her friends, Jane is determined to find a way to get Anyan back. To succeed, Jane must fully embrace the fact that she is the champion and be prepared to make sacrifices that she never dreamed possible. If that were not enough, because the entire world is under t ...more

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

Jane True has been dealt some pretty harsh blows recently, but nothing harder than seeing her lover overtaken by the White Dragon. Everyone else feels he is a lost cause as the White and Red must be destroyed at all costs. But Jane isn't willing to give up so easy. Luckily she has some pretty good friends at her side to help her in her impossible quest. Even so, it may not be enough as countless have tried and failed to destroy the Red and W

This is the sixth, and final, book in the Jane True series. It was decent but not as spectacular as I had hoped. It kind of felt like Peeler was just going through the motions and tying up loose ends. I enjoyed the first half of the book, but though that the second half was a bit of a drag to get through. There are spoilers for the previous books in this series ahead, so you have been warned.

This book picks up right where the fifth book left off. Anyan has been merged with the White, Blondie has

Quick & Dirty: Saving Anyan is Jane’s number 1 priority but will she be strong enough to follow all the instructions to defeat the Red and White?

Opening Sentence: The agaony was excruciating, a white heat at the center of my consciousness.

Tempest Reborn is the epic finale to the Jane True’s series. While I have only read books 5 and 6, I really feel that this is a story that was told with great planning and consideration for the entire arc of t

Stunning wrap-up to a fabulous urban fantasy series.

I've loved Nicole Peeler's Jane True series from the start and this conclusion delighted, dazzled and drained me. Smart, sassy and kick-ass as ever, the voice of these books is now so familiar that settling into this last one is like visiting an old friend (you know, that old mate who can always say the right thing to make you laugh, not the touchy-feely one). It's not all fun and games though - there are some seriously tense sequences here and

I have always loved the Jane True series for all of its cliff-hangers, humor, lust, and amazing characters. This series constantly had me on my toes, in tears, belly laughing, or dying for my man to come home, if you catch my drift. Now, on to the review…

Jane has just lost her lover to a horrid dragon. Her entire world is gone and she is alone. Mourning the loss of Blondie and Anyan and all of her hope she would rather die too. Everyone now has to look to her to be the champion s
