Review: Tracking the Tempest by Nicole Peeler (Audiobook)(Rating 4 Wine Glasses)

Posted March 16, 2011 by Felicia S in Uncategorized / 2 Comments


From Goodreads: Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, and Ryu – Jane’s bloodsucking boyfriend – can’t let a major holiday go by without getting all gratuitous. An overwhelming dose of boyfriend interference and a last-minute ticket to Boston later, and Jane’s life is thrown off course.

Ryu’s well-intentioned plans create mayhem, and Jane winds up embroiled in an investigation involving a spree of gruesome killings. All the evidence points towards another Halfling, much to Jane’s surprise…

What I Loved: Anyan!  I really love this Barghast as he is such a strong, sensible yet extremely intriguing character.  The action, story, and on-going events really stepped it up in this book.  It was a great follow up to the first part of the story.  I enjoyed getting to know more of the players in world of which Jane is part of and also loved that her ultimate pull is back to the place she grew up.

What I Liked: It might be because Nicole is a teacher but education always seems to crop up in her stories.  I like how she makes it cool to be smart and a reader.  While this may not compel the story forward, it does prove that you can combine your interests and your stories together.

Complaints:  To much Ryu!  Though to be honest it is just because he reminds me of the sleazy bad boy that you date for awhile to get over that bad boy phase.

Audio Specific Review: Narrated by Kate Reinders and she does an excellent job.  I really like the way she voices each of these characters.  She even does a great job on the guy’s voices!

Why I gave it a 4: The reason I give this book a 4 is because of the action, story, and how Jane ends up at the end of the story.  Without giving away anything, let me just say the ending really does make you realize that Jane is really holding her own despite everything that has been thrown at her!

Who I would recommend this too: Urban Fantasy readers who like the chick-lit type of tilt.  These are a bit lighter than very dark Urban Fantasy novels.

    Of course it is cool to be a reader, they are the smartest people on the planet. ;)I'm surprised by this review, Felicia. I think it's because the cover kind of makes the book look like a children's book. I kind of struggle getting into UF, so maybe going with something lighter would be a better start for me.

    I really need to shift this series furthur to the top of my to be read mountain. Ruth raves heavily bout them. Plus I want to read them before AAD, as she will be there.
