After a peaceful hiatus at home in Rockabill, Jane True thinks that her worst problem is that she still throws like a girl – at least while throwing fireballs. Her peace of mind ends, however, when Anyan arrives one night with terrible news . . . news that will rock Jane’s world to its very core. After demanding to help investigate a series of gruesome attacks on females — supernatural, halfling, and human — Jane quickly finds herself forced to confront her darkest nightmares as well as her deepest desires.
And she’s not sure which she finds more frightening.
I seriously plowed right through this book, and for good reason! Jane True is back and in my honest opinion, better than ever! She’s still the same slightly awkward yet funny sex-on-the-mind girl we’ve come to know and love, but in Tempest’s Legacy we finally see Jane come into her own. No longer does Jane have to rely on others to fight battles for her, no longer is she satisfied to sit back and watch, she wants to get in the thick of it all. Not only does she want to be in the battle, but now she can honestly add something offensively to raids and attacks and no longer hinder and make others feel the need to protect her. Though obviously that’s easier said than done. With Anyan the ever protective barghest and Ryu always watching out for Jane, it’s sometimes tough for her to unleash everything that she’s capable of.
I really enjoyed reading this because for once romance wasn’t the sole focus of the book. Don’t get me wrong, I loved reading the steamy scenes of Jane and Ryu, but after a while it got old. I wondered if we’d ever see Jane toughen up and feel more comfortable with her skills. I was pleased to find that in this book we were able to meet a new side of Jane. She’s become a good fighter, and even though she’s not always confident in her abilities, I can truly say that we’re able to see a great improvement in what she’s capable of doing. Not only can we see it, but Jane and everyone around her notices her progress as well.
I can’t really go into much detail for fear of giving away too much of the plot. But one of the big events that’s found out early on in the story was a great contributing factor to push Jane to her limit, and it was only then that I finally saw how strong she was. This book packed more than enough action into the mix, as well as some much loved barghest time. Anyan has been a favorite character of mine, and in this book we finally get a better look at him as a character.
When all is said and done, I’m quite literally ready to jump into the next book in the series!
Also still reading 1984! It’s finally less tedious for me to read, I’m about three-quarters of the way through with it. I’m hoping to finish it this coming week/weekend.
