Tempest Rising is FINtastic!! Sorry I couldn’t resist! But seriously it was awesome.

It’s no secret that I’m a fan of mermaids. I mean if my blog name didn’t tip you off, well it should have. Not that sirens are technically mermaids, but “the story mermaid” didn’t quite have the same ring to it as “the story siren” but anyway back to the review. I might be a little biased when it comes to this book because I do love mermaids, but it was actually a really spectacular story.

I loved the characters and the setting. The evil sea witch (totally not as “little mermaid” as it sounds) and her minions. The fresh spin on the mythology was really quite refreshing. I really enjoyed reading this one and getting lost in Tempest’s world.... er worlds. If only I knew how to surf I would love to catch a wave with Tempest and her friends.

The only thing that I was a little iffy on was the situation with Tempest’s mom, or rather what happened when they met. It was so abrupt. I guess perhaps I was looking for a little more closure for Tempest, I felt like she deserved that and then she ended up getting cheated out of it.

I think one thing that paranormal fans will like is the steamy love triangle in this one! Both guys have their qualities that make them a good match for Tempest, it was hard to decide who I preferred, but in the end I think she made the right decision.

I would love to read more about Tempest and her adventures and watch her to come figure out her “powers” and of course I’d like to see a little bit more Kai!

Great story, great characters and a beautiful cover!!

I finished this one last week and am posting a review today. I thought it was really good (after the slowness of the beginning). Hope your enjoying it!
