The fiery-haired, tempestuous Brynja Teare lived anything but an average childhood. Her change in address was as unpredictable as the shift in weather, undergoing a life on the run in order to conceal her ability to govern thunder and lightning, wind and storms. Along with her father’s recent desertion, she lost the answers to a long list of questions. For starters, why do ...more

Wow!

This book was amazing!! I absolutely love books about Norse mythology, I absolutely love Thor. I'm a Thor whore ;). So this book was right up my alley.

I loved Brynja! She was fierce, independent, sassy, sarcastic, everything I love in a female lead. She is totally badass!

Galinn. I do believe he has become my new book boyfriend! He's this big bad warrior with a sweet side.

Brynja and Galinn together is perfect. They worked so well together that I found myself rooting for them throughout the

I absolutely loved Tempestuous by Anne Berkeley. The characters are fantastic, the plot is excellent. the chemistry between the characters is definitely drool worthy and exceptional.
I was given this book as an ARC to read in exchange for an honest review, and I am very glad that I had the opportunity to read it. It is wonderful. I have given 5 stars because it definitely deserves it. Anne has written an exceptional book. I would definitely recommend Temestuous.
Congrats Anne on a wonderful boo

Brynja is an 18 year old girl with unusual talents - she can control elements of the weather and can summon storms and lightning on command. For years her father has pretty much sheltered her from any sort of normal life, constantly moving from place to place, where Brynja never has much time to settle in and make friends. Once she reaches the age of 18, she decides enough is enough and stays put whilst her father moves on.

On a night out, Brynja attracts the attention of a stunning Viking looki

**I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.**

The protagonist of our story is an 18 year old girl by the name of Brynja Teare, and we first meet her in a bar, where she gets herself in deep and fast, by tangling with a dark spirit. She's unwillingly rescued by a blonde Viking of a man, one Galinn Gunn, who will be forced to reveal to her a heritage and a fate she once only dreamed of.

TEMPESTUOUS has a gorgeously simple and elegant cover. Even if I knew nothing of the book,

Tempestuous is a paranormal romance, which is a bit outside my typical genre preferences, so I was rather surprised by how quickly nearly all physical inhibitions between the female and male main characters (Brynja and Galinn) dissolved. To me this seemed to lessen an opportunity for building interest in the relationship development, but I've heard from others that this is fairly standard for the genre, so if you generally read and enjoy this genre, you'll probably find the fast start appealing. ...more

I hadn't read any fantasy in awhile when I picked up Tempestuous. It totally delivered on the mythology, the fantasy setting, the creatures, and of course, magical powers! Bryn, the heroine, is a normal teenager who finds herself swept into a grand adventure with, dare I say it, a band of berserkers who ride the night skies slaying the undead. That alone was enough reason for me to enjoy the book.

The romance between Bryn and Galinn was excellent. Galinn is patient, loving, devoted and very much

I received a copy of this as a beta reader by the author and was asked to give a review. :)

This book was a little slow moving at first, but I quickly realized that this was to bring the story, characters and the in depth world into play at the right time.

Brynja Teare is the main character that this series focuses on. She is a feisty, Tempestuous(Hence the title.), complicated young woman. I honestly did not like her at first, until I understood why she is the way she is.

She is very spirited, yet

First I would to mention I received this book for free from author in exchange for an honest review.

This was a great story and I love Galinn and the other berserkers. They were funny but also caring and emotional. This book has a great story line with just the right amount if suspense and surprise twists to keep the fun going. It has dragons and elves too and I loooove dragons! It's also caused me to want to learn more about the legendary berserkers. I recommend this book if you like anything Ce

Hi! My name is Anne Berkeley. I'm a full time cubicle dweller, wife and mother of two beautiful children. I do all things creative. Photoshop, photography, scrapbooking, decorating, barbering, and I would like to think...writing.

I dream up most of my material during my seventy-five minute commute to work and home again. Some of it comes to fruition and other times it's edited out again. But I hop
