Tempest Unleashed Review

352 pages
Release date: June 5th, 2012

Tempest Maguire is happy with her decision to embrace her mermaid nature and live among her mother’s clan within the ocean’s depths. Even though training to one day ascend the throne for the aging mermaid queen is rigorous, she finds refuge in the arms of Kona, the selkie who first opened her up to her mermaid side. But when word comes that one of her brothers has been gravely injured on land, Tempest immediately rushes to his side—which also brings her back to her old flame, Mark. And in her absence, a deadly battle begins raging at the hands of Tempest’s old nemesis, the sea witch Tiamat. As the dangerous war erupts, Tempest’s two loves—Kona and Mark, sea and land—will collide for the first time, both to protect her and to force her to choose.

Review (ARC):
This book was great. Frustrated me at the end but it was still amazing. I love the fact that Tempest knows her own mind but I hate that she isn't certain when it comes to the love triangle she is stuck in. It would seem that Tempest is living an amazing life under water but she still has ties and longing for her land life. There are things about living under water that don't make it a fantasy world and Tempest has to struggle with some of that from day to day. I have to admit that Mark is not my favorite corner of the love triangle, I mean can you get any better than Kona the selkie prince? However, there is a pull about both of them that seems to affect Tempest equally in most of the book. There is a lot of discoveries and adventure for most of the novel but the real action doesn't happen until closer to the end of the book. Definitely an enjoyable read, I recommend this book to those who like mermaid fantasy novel but make sure you read Tempest Rising first.
