Tempest's Legacy by Nicole Peeler

What happens when a half-selkie goes on a road trip/ vengence quest? We find out in Nicole Peeler’s latest Tempest novel, Tempest’s Legacy. Jane True is the daughter of a selkie and a human. She doesn’t transform into a seal like mom, but she does have that little something extra, and an affinity for water. 
Jane has had a chance to rest back home and work on improving her magical and fighting skills. Of course, a girl’s work is never done. Word reaches Jane that halfling women are being murdered in evil labs around the country. Jane decided that she is not going to let the men folk leave her home. So, Jane sets off with her friend, Anyan, the barghest, and her recent ex-boyfriend, Ryu, the vampire. Neither of them are  happy that Jane is coming along. Jane sticks up for herself in every way in this book. 
I was glad to see Jane really coming into her own in this book. It makes me excited for where the series is going to go. According to Ms. Peeler’s website, there are at least 2 more books in the works. I personally can’t wait. I think this series just gets better and better as we get deeper into Jane’s new world. 
I’m going to give Tempest’s Legacy by Nicole Peeler, 2 bookmarks.
