Anyan may be trapped in an evil dragon and Blondie may be gone, but Jane knows one thing: she's not about to give up. She's ready to tear down heaven and earth to save her lover, despite those who believe he's lost.

Luckily for Jane, those who've given up on Anyan do not include those closest to her. Defying The Powers That Be, Jane and Company form their own crack squad of misfits, in whose hands the fate of the world may well rest.

With a little help from her friends, the Universe, and lots of snacks, Jane embarks on her greatest adventure yet, confident that with great sacrifice comes great reward. The question is, who will be that sacrifice?

Jane True is back in the last installment of the series. It is always sad to see a series end but Jane has had a fabulous run and you will not be disappointed. TEMPEST'S FURY left everything on a pretty big cliffhanger as we watch Anyan fly away. TEMPEST REBORN starts up right where we left off. As you can imagine Jane is not in a good place. Luckily she has her friends by her side for support as she starts the hardest part of her journey yet.
Nicole does not skimp out on the action and adventure in TEMPEST REBORN. The whole book is go-go-go with little downtime. Jane takes control and really shines through. For those Jane and Anyan fans, Nicole knows how to get her sexy talk on. I am always thoroughly entertained reading through those moments. Not into sexy time? That is OK it doesn't happen all the time and it doesn't drag out or anything. Although there is a lot of loss with books 5 and 6, I really enjoyed those who took part in book 6. Everyone comes together to make it all happen.

I really liked the ending but I wish we could get some sort of novella or short story so we can get a bit more detail on the few years before the jump ahead. It would be fun to witness the experiences that happen. I'm very happy with the ending of the series though so I would consider that a bonus if it ever happened. I will miss Jane, Anyan and the rest of the gang.

I gave it 5/5 stars
