Tempest Rising
While living in the small town of Rockabill, Maine, Jane True always knew she couldn’t fit in with the normal society. She works in a bookshop and lives with her sick father. She’s well known in the town because her mother is the woman who disappeared 20 years back, leaving her with her father.

Jane has been an outcast in her town after her mother came to the neighborhood naked. In addition to walking naked, she stole the town’s most eligible Bachelor then left him and his daughter several years later. She’s also involved in the death of Jason, her boyfriend, in a suicide-rescue attempt case.
Jane’s past is really tragic, and even though life has her taken down, readers can still see how she’s ready to be submissive to the people who hate her. Things get worse after Jane’s high school lover drowns, and the whole community blames her for the death. Since then, she’s suffered a breakdown and has only recovered partially. One day during her nightly, stealthy swim in the cold winter ocean, a grisly search leads Jane to revelations about her heritage that she is half-human.

When Jane finds that the paranormal creatures are real and live among humans, she doesn’t stay skeptical for long. One day, when swimming, she finds a Murdered body that resembled that of someone she knew and becomes involuntarily involved in a mystery that leads to the truth of her origin and starts fearing for her life. The dead man doesn’t seem human and it’s this discovery she finds she isn’t a full human either.

Jane grows into an amazing leading lady, and the reader goes on an epic journey as they witness her way to self-forgiveness. It starts to make sense that she’s one of them since she can swim in whirl pools and come out alive. She has the ability to manipulate water and this explains why she is not killed in the water. Even though she enters a dark world, she’s has found a place she fits well.

All this describes her new ‘friend,’ Ryu, a powerful and gorgeous vampire. The death of the man is what brings Ryu to town as a vampire investigator for the death. The vampire explains to her the reason why she’s half-human and halfling. Now she must enter a world full of supernatural creatures that are alternatively deadly, beautiful, and terrifying. It’s a world where nothing should be taken for granted. In this world, spirits bag you groceries, a dog can heal with a lick and anything you do, never rub a genie’s lamp.

In addition to the great dialogue between the characters, Jane’s mind has a lot of quick flashbacks. Her real- self-talks back to her and cautions her not to do some things; her partially evil side laughs at people’s troubles and persuades her onto some dark places.

This’s a perfect book for Sookie Stackhouse lovers. The novel switches between urban fantasy and paranormal romance. If you love grotesque stories blended with a twisted sense of humor and the opposite of a kick-ass heroine, this book is ideal for you.

The cover of the book brings a light and fluffy story to mind with a flavor of humor. The mystical creatures in the story are both interesting and amusing. The world-building in the book is great, and the pace is good with mystery and intrigue surrounding the murder. The author blends in some action and humor to keep the reader engaged.

Jinn and Juice
This is the first installment in the Jinn series. Cursed to become a jinni for one thousand years, Leila almost completes her bondage only to be enslaved again against her will. Can she risk everything to become human again?

Born in Persia, Leila was a teenage daughter of an ancient Persian king. She was so desperate and went to seek help from Kouros, a jinni, to flee an arranged marriage. The jinni made life hard for her by cursing her to become a jinni. She becomes a jinn and a belly dancer and performer at a club in Pittsburgh, spending her time before the curse expires.

The rule of the curse is that if she is able to stay unbound for a thousand years, the curse expires and turn into a human once more. For her, it’s been a long thousand years, and she has waited for the last day. Only one week is left for her curse to end the curse, and she can’t wait to get her freedom back. But Ozan Sawyer, a Magi with the ability to call, bind and see Jinn has different plans. Oz wants Leila help to enter Pittsburgh’s magic, a potent and poisonous juice to supernatural beings. All this is for Oz to search for a missing girl who is his friend’s daughter and with a connection to kouros.
He wouldn’t release Leila until the girl is found, and she has no choice but to follow all the rules and hope that he will keep his promise of releasing her once she completes the task. Will Leila be able to rescue the girl in time? For Leila, getting bound by Oz may put her into more risks apart from the chance to become human again.

Jinn and Juice is a captivating, enthralling, and magical read. The story is set in a world of powerful jinni, immortal curses and belly dancing. The secondary characters are funny and did a nice job and keeping the story going on. They are unique and creative in their ways, and their diversity is amazing.
