Book Review Club ~ May 2013
I missed Barrie Summy’s Book Review Club meeting last month (mostly because I hadn’t had any time for reading and thus, had nothing to gush over), and this month, rather than gush over the third book in a series I have already hyped for a different Book Review Club (The Maggie Hope Mysteries), I’m previewing a novel I’ve just started reading.
That said, if you aren’t reading The Maggie Hope Mysteries by Susan Elia MacNeal, I highly recommend you do! They are wonderful–her latest, His Majesty’s Hope, out May 14th, is a riveting read, its storyline drawn from the atrocities committed in Nazi Germany during WWII.
So, my recommendation this month is Tempest Rising by Nicole Peeler, an author also repped by the fabulous Rebecca Strauss. Tempest Rising, currently a deal on Kindle at $3.79, is the first in the Jane True urban fantasy series. Now, I don’t typically read urban fantasy, but I was curious, and the price was right. Plus, I like the cover!
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 love Sookie Stackhouse, then you’ll want to dive into Nicole Peeler’s enchanting debut novel.
