Nothing says 'home' like being attacked by humans with very large guns, as supernatural halfling Jane True discovers when she arrives in Rockabill.

4.5 stars

Take a look at the Jane True series cast:

- a half selkie who constantly engages in conversations with her libido;
- an attractive shapeshifter with a rather canine sense of fashion;
- a powerful gnome who always carries her rocking chair with her;
- a kelpie named Trill who turns into a pony;
- a satyr with a loincloth problem;
- a former porn star turned lesbian heiress socialite;

if you feel the corners of your mouth turning up by now, the Jane True Series might be just the thing for you.

Odd. So Goodreads totally deleted this book from my shelf.... so I'm just re-adding it and my review.

Alright, it’s official. I love Nicole Peeler. There, I’ve said it. I’m SO glad that I finally got off my ass and read her Jane True series because it is truly a wonderful, hilarious, hell of a good time series.

In the fourth installment of the Jane True series, after an altercation with a group of humans who attacked Jane and Anyan, Jane uses a power against them that no on

Nicole Peeler has risen to the very top of my list of funny authors. I don't think I've ever laughed so much with a book. Maybe I'll write a full review during the weekend, but I don't see much point to it. Being the fourth book, all anyone needs to know is that it lives up to everything I was hoping for and more.

Review courtesy of Dark Faerie Tales

Quick & Dirty: A tense race to find out what is stirring beneath Rockabill before the bad guys do. This book is progressively more serious than the rest of the series, but still delivers all the jokes and jabs we expect from Jane and her friends.

Opening Sentence: I awoke slowly, languorously, my still-mostly-sleeping brain registering surprise when my nose smooshed into soft leather rather than sheets.

Jane has been busy since we last read the Tempest's Legacy. A month has since passed and Jane and Anyan have been searching high and low for those responsible for killing Jane's mother Mari. Now that Jari and Morrigan have been exposed for what they truly are--conniving and loathsome beings that were responsible for killing off half-breeds--it’s only a matter of time before things come to a final conclusion.

Sexual tension. To the point where it's almost painful! Oh, and some other stuff. It must be said that Jane's libido is one of my favorite characters and when it's being denied she gets grumpy. And snarky! What I wasn't prepared for was the . . . twist.

Basically Jane becomes the chosen one. My book friends know how much this annoys me. Very few authors can pull off “the chosen one” bull crap and it always puts the fear in me. But this is Peeler. To me she can do no wrong and I highly doubt she'

Waking from a month long comma, Jane finds her peaceful small town in turmoil. Weird things are happening in Rockabill and when Nell and Anyan get taken out of commission by a nasty spell, it’s up to Jane and her new friend Blondie to get to the bottom of it all (literally). Be prepared for non-stop ass kicking action, lots sexual frustration, and as always snarky and humorous dialogue (internal and external).

Nicole Peeler books are always a treat, and Eye of the Tempest proves no exception to the rule. As per usual, I purchased it the day it came out, read it as fast as possible...which was slow for me this week (too much life going on). However, I will now proceed to whinge until the next book is out. What can I say? Peeler is always good.

In Eye of the Tempest, Jane True has discovered something interesting about her home town of Rockabill Maine. The town is the center of an ancient power that attr

The Jane True series is one of my favorites and I was really looking forward to this book (in spite of the horrendous changes they made to the cover). Though it was a quick read and still pretty good, it was by far my least favorite book in the series and left me with mixed emotions. I love Jane and I really wanted to love this book but I just didn't. It fell flat for me and when I finished I was both sad and a little angry.

Snarky Jane was still there and kicking ass but certain scenes were real

I was so looking forward to this book and it's just a huge tease!! That doesn't mean I didn't enjoy it because I did. Jane and Anyan just got home from their last huge fight and get attacked again leaving Jane in a coma for a month. When she finally comes out of it, not only does she have to play catch up but she finds out strange things are happening in the town. This, of course, leaves NO time for her and Anyan. And then "something" happens and there is absolutely NO time for her and Anyan.

I love Jane True. It is such a fun series.
The details of each story really add a lot to keeping me reading this series.
Jane's character has progressed and grown with all her experiences.
Jane True is back. We learn a new side of Jane in this book.
I like this new part of Jane. Jane has grown and has to be more independent.
I like when a character can have a new aspect that lets the books grow in a new direction.

I am sooo intrigued by this series! With every new installment, Nicole Peeler manages to reel me in deeper to Jane's world of manic Alfar antics and mind blowing magic! I can't imagine what Jane will get herself into next, but the countdown is on! Summer 2012 cannot come fast enough for me, but here's hoping that the publishers bump up the date!

Another great entry in the Jane True saga. What I like best about this series is the skilled storytelling. Dr. Peeler crafts a really good tale for each book and has a clear plan for the series as well. It's just tremendous fun to sit back and watch Nicole do her thing, she writes these books that are just wonderfully good fun on the surface but that are also really thoughtfully designed and smart. The series has a clear plan, it isn't like some that just sort of bumble along with the heroine ju ...more

Eye of the Tempest, the fourth book in the Jane True series, is what I am deeming straight up Classic Jane True. It is a lot lighter than the previous Jane book, Tempest’s Legacy. While the stakes are high, they are handled with so much humor the high level tension in the previous books is for the mo

I could not put down EYE OF THE TEMPEST. There is non stop action, fantastic kick butt characters, tons of sexual frustration, laugh out loud commentary and some great surprises thrown in to make what I feel is the best Jane True novel yet. Jane has really grown into the supernatural world and herself. She gets some more answers and finds a new ally in her fight to protect. Her and Anyan are attempting to start up a relationship that has been f

Start of the book was not so great, but then book take same fast action, comedic and intresting phase where I have grown used in Nicole Peelers previous books.

Jane True is not typical paranormal heroine, but she is really independent woman who can make her own decisions and these independent thoughs are not typical I disagree with male lead and then realises during book that male lead was right. Nicole Peeler makes much more intresting plot twist as she make male lead to be cursed as dog most of

Eye of the Tempest by Nicole Peeler stars Jane True, a half silkie. Jane has a destiny that even she is unsure she is ready for. Jane and and her friends are being led to fight a war. A war bigger then even Jane herself can imagine. When a powerful and ancient being, with the power to destroy half of the eastern sea board (and possibly the world), awakes Jane must use her gut and heart to decide what is the right path. Her friends and family are in danger and she must be the one to protect them. ...more

Apparently I forgot to mark this read in Goodreads but had put it in my database as done and reviewed. Huh. This is what I wrote (I keep my reviews in calibre, too):

Definitely not the best effort in the series and the end could be called a cliff hanger, although I won't quibble too much with it given that most of the events of the book found a resolution. Cock blocking as a plot device runs amok in this book, however. It runs too long to be cute in the beginning, but ends on a massive cock block

This is the longest time i ever take to read a book. It was frustrating that I was actually skimming through it but I just couldn't bring myself to finish it.

This series is pretty nice but as years goes on.. the talk about Jane's libido has taken a toll on me and her constant conversation with her virtues and libido really puts me off.

There are some missing chapters for my book and I was pretty much skimming through it.
Almost every page, Jane will talk about her libido and it gets really tiring

Fourth in the Jane True urban fantasy series about Jane, her friends, and their stumbling adventures in fighting the bad guys in Rockabill, Maine.

My Take
This is a bridge novel setting us up for the adventures in Tempest's Fury .

Hide the milkbones. Jane is in almost constant conflict between her libido and her virtue. And it's just too funny to read. Considering what a sheltered life she's led, there's something to be said for the value of reading...ahem…

Katie Michaels
I feel like the Jane True series veered from it's path a bit in this latest installment. Don't get me wrong - I enjoyed it. But there are big changes afoot, both for Jane and the landscape of her world.

I started this book with one thought: If Jane and Anyan don't kiss, I'm going to Nicole Peeler's house and accosting her with my nook. I mean, I have been waiting with drool in the corner of my mouth patiently for these two to realize their feelings and now that they have, there should be no more

This is the fourth book in the Jane True series by Peeler. This book was less romance and more urban fantasy than the previous books. I really enjoyed it and am intrigued by some of the turns the story takes.

Jane is trying to catch her breath from all of the events that happened in the last book. Then strange things start happening in the town of Rockabill. Random people (normal and supernaturals alike) start spouting strange warnings without realizing it and some of the baddies we've all grown

Eye of the Tempest was another fast paced instalment in this fantastic series.

Jane accidentally short circuits herself when she pulls the water from several human beings to protect Anyan during an attack. It kills the men, and it nearly kills her as well. When she wakes up, a month has passed and strange occurrences are becoming more frequent in Rockabill.

Jane once again had me in fits of laughter; her trademark libido vs. virtue monologue is absolutely hilarious. Jane is growing as a character;

My thoughts: If you're at all interested in publishing, or maybe even if you aren't, you'll have heard people talk about author "voice" before. Like many people, I didn't quite get it, but Nicole Peeler has it, in spades. I started following her on twitter a couple of months before I got the first book (Tempest Rising), and as soon as I started the book, I could see it - the writing is so totally Nicole. The way she talks on twitter is the way she writes in the books, and I love it. I haven't re ...more

I started this series on a whim, judged the books by their covers and thought why not? That being said, I am enjoying them immensely. They're light and fluffy and make me laugh right out loud, but they're also filled with so much of the urban fantasy and light mystery that I love. If you read them as light fluffy not too dark books they are you will love them too. Jane is a hoot! Diving in to the next one now.
