Publisher Comments:

Living in small town Rockabill, Maine, Jane True always knew she didn't quite fit in with so-called normal society. During her nightly, clandestine swim in the freezing winter ocean, a grisly find leads Jane to startling revelations about her heritage: she is only half-human.

Now, Jane must enter a world filled with supernatural creatures alternatively terrifying, beautiful, and deadly- all of which perfectly describe her new friend, Ryu, a gorgeous and powerful vampire.

It is a world where nothing can be taken for granted: a dog can heal with a lick; spirits bag your groceries; and whatever you do, never-ever-rub the genie's lamp.

If you loveSookie Stackhouse, then you'll want to dive into Nicole Peeler's enchanting debut novel.

Synopsis:

In the tradition of Charlaine Harris's Southern Vampire Mysteries comes an irresistible urban fantasy debut set in small-town Maine, and featuring half-human and half-selkie Jane True, who comes across a murder victim during her nightly clandestine swim in the freezing ocean. Original.

'Tempest Rising' is an adult urban fantasy of a half-human young woman discovering her heritage and about all the perils that doing so entails. This is a well-written novel by Ms. Peeler, and her characters are interesting and engaging. It seems like there may be an over-flooded market of vampire and werewolf stories, but Ms. Peeler's world and her characterization of Jane True is unique and refreshing. The cover art has created some controversy, and a casual observer scanning bookshelves may stop and think "teen goth emo story" and bypass it, but as they say, don't judge a book by its cover - just start reading and I'll bet you'll be a fan.

'Tempest Rising' will grab you right away and never let you go, not even at the end. Luckily, the author has a sequel in the works. I'm looking forward to reading more about Jane True!
