Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome! Tracking The Tempest is the second book in Nicole Peeler’s Jane True series, where we follow Jane who found out in the first novel that she is part selkie & part human. Jane is still coming to terms with it & being trained in her defense shields & her offense. She’s also a little over 3 months into a long distance relationship with Ryu (babohan sith/vampire) & Ryu is starting to put pressure on Jane to take the relationship to the next level, which would turn her whole world upside down. While visiting Ryu in Boston, Jane gets sucked into an investigation he is conducting where a hafling has broken out of a facility & is killing people & supes at an alarming pace. In the 3 odd months since Tempest Rising, Jane has been training with Nell (a gnome), Trill (the weirdest My Little Pony out there) & Anyan (hell hound) learning glamours, shields & mage lights, all to prepare her to defend herself properly in the supe world she’s been thrown into. She’s happy & proud of herself for continuing on in the face of all the weirdness that has surrounded her. Little does she know how soon she’ll be needing those shields. I love Jane, she’s snarky & hard headed, but she knows what she wants & she keeps pushing to get it. Ryu & his necessity for Jane to move to Boston really irritated me, I love Ryu but he doesn’t seem to know what the word compromise means. It’s his way or no way & I am glad that Jane keeps “sticking it to the man”. It’s amazing how a character changes from one book to the next, Jane has grown up more & Ryu seems to be more dependant on Jane. There is also some new tension between Anyan & Jane, and also between Ryu & Anyan. Ryu makes mention of something, but doesn’t follow through with the reason he doesn’t seem to like Anyan much. I wonder how the storyline will progress between the three of them. There are some cool additions to the series, Ryu’s group of supernatural police. I fell in love with Julian & I hope we get to see more of him. Ms. Peeler also has a big surprise when Jane finally finds out where Grizzie has been disappearing to all this time. My only issue with Tracking The Tempest was the (IMO) overuse of terms of endearment between Ryu & Jane (baby, babe, sweetheart) I am all for showing your love/like but I thought it was a bit much. But that said, Jane comes off as real. She’s a character you can relate to in terms of her relationships & even her reaction to being thrown into a world that she had no idea existed, she’s just trying to live. Just like any of us would be & that’s what I love most about Ms. Peeler’s writing, take away the supernatural elements & it could be real. Nicole Peeler is snarky, witty & hilarious….pick up a copy, you’ll be happy you did it’s a fun ride!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Terrific! This is book 2 of Jane True's Life and TImes. First, I have to say !!!!!!! This is a fabulous story. It might even be better than book 1. Jane does a lot of growing in this story and she comes out much better for it. The truly bad part is that there are only 348 pages. Now we have to wait until January to find out what happens next. :( Tracking the Tempest continues where Tempest Rising left off. Jane is now fully immersed in the supernatural world. She's learning to use her magic and she's in a long distance relationship with Ryu, her vampire boyfriend. The supernatural community is busy playing deep games and Jane is struggling to keep herself and her loved ones safe. This is such a fast-paced book, I just know I'm going to have to read it again in a couple of weeks to pick up on all the finer details I zoomed through on the first reading. Jane has quickly become one of my favourite urban fantasy heroines and I send out a loud hip-hip-hoorah and congratulations to Nicole for her imagination and skill. You keep writing them, Dr. Peeler, and I will keep reading them! Oh, and Nicole, Ryu's last name (guffaw-giggle-snort) sheer brilliance!
