Today I am reviewing Chasing Tempest by Brandon Witt, and published by Dreamspinner Press.
Finn de Morisco knows he is walking into a trap when he enters the Vampire Cathedral to rescue his sister Cynthia. Aided by Schwint and his other sister, Caitlin, he intends to free Cynthia and avoid enslavement. But when he confronts the master of the Voice that has tortured him, Finn faces a grim choice: compromise his soul or lose his family.
For centuries members of the Chromis tribe have disappeared, and Brett Wright is on a quest to discover the fate of the captive mers and to stop the abductions. Despite the risk of tribal warfare, he embarks on a dangerous ocean journey to find other mer tribes experiencing the same plight. When destiny brings him back to land, Brett encounters new allies and old dangers while coming to grips with the past.
This book is part of the Men of Myth series. I previously reviewed book 1 of the series.
Overall I like the series, and this book. It does supernatural well, and generally sticks to the rules around the different “species”. The reason for the low score is – I liked Finn, and I liked Brett. They broke up in book 1, and haven’t gotten back together. It broke my heart. I get emotionally invested in my books, and this made me very, very sad. And it seems to be the end of this storyline, meaning they’ll probably never get back together.
And that’s a darned shame.
