Cover Art - "Tracking the Tempest" by NIcole Peeler

Now this cover is truly a standout. I just love it. Tracking the Tempest by Nicole Peeler is the sequel to yet to be released Tempest Rising (Oct. 27) in her Jane True urban fantasy series and will itself be hitting shelves Spring/Summer 2010.

Tracking the Tempest begins four months–and one eyebrow sacrificed to magical training–after the close of Tempest Rising. During that time, Jane’s been busy honing her supernatural powers and enjoying her newfound sense of confidence. Rockabill may not yet be heaven, but she’s realized it’s home. Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, however, and Ryu–Jane’s bloodsucker boyfriend–can’t let a major holiday go by without getting all gratuitous. This time his shenanigans involve a last-minute ticket to Boston and a hefty dose of direct interference in her life. But Ryu’s best laid plans inevitably create more upheaval than even he can anticipate, and Jane winds up embroiled in an investigation involving a spree of gruesome killings committed by a being of tremendous power . . .

. . . who, much to Jane’s surprise, happens to be another halfling.


  1. Very cute cover! I love the cartoon ones like this. Wonder who the artist is?

  2. The artist is Sharon Tancredi. I found the info here: http://www.orbitbooks.net/2009/10/12/cover-launch-tracking-the-tempest/


  3. Thanks DamnationDominoodle (love the nic). I should have posted that earlier. Sharon actually won a design award for the cover of Tempest Rising. Well deserved!

  4. I like the covers to the Tempest books. They remind me of a cross between tattoo art, bratz dolls and cartoons. Very cute and striking.

  5. I do love the covers. Of all the cartoony covers that have come out, this one still stands out on its own with its uniqueness. I'm trying not to buy too many books now that I have my Kindle, but I may have to pick these ones up just for the cover alone.

  6. Mardel Bratz dolls. LOL. Too funny. The covers are a standout in a crowded marketplace.

    Jackie so how is going with the Kindle? I understand the convenience but for me anything bought for electronic reading is disposable - like a newspapers. I just can't think of books in those terms.


For bloggers comments are like water to a man (or woman) wandering in the desert. A precious commodity. I love to hear from everyone and do my best to respond to every post.
