Title: Tempest Unleashed
Author: Tracy Deebs
In this sequel to Tempest Rising, we meet Tempest, who is half-mermaid and half-human, as she is trying to adjust to life in the ocean. After a few months in the ocean, she begins to miss her family that she left behind on land. She travels to her old home in order to see her family and accidently see her old boyfriend
Mark surfing. She begins to have old feelings arise for Mark even though her current boyfriend Kona is a selkie prince. She returns to her new home and is injured by some of the sea witch Tiamat’s henchmen while en route. She later finds out that her youngest brother has been injured by Tiamat and is in a coma.
She then travels back to her old home and tries to help while she begins to be drawn to Mark. Meanwhile in the ocean, a battle rages between Tiamat and Tempest’s new clan. While the previous installment was great, this volume seems very sappy and superficial while Tempest cannot decide who to date when a battle is raging. This will appeal to fans of paranormal romance, but is considered an optional purchase.
