"Tempestuous" by Anne Berkeley (3 Stars)

Tempestuous #1
by Anne Berkeley

Genre: Paranormal Romance

**I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.**

The protagonist of our story is an 18 year old girl by the name of Brynja Teare, and we first meet her in a bar, where she gets herself in deep and fast, by tangling with a dark spirit. She's unwillingly rescued by a blonde Viking of a man, one Galinn Gunn, who will be forced to reveal to her a heritage and a fate she once only dreamed of.

TEMPESTUOUS has a gorgeously simple and elegant cover. Even if I knew nothing of the book, I'd have been drawn in by the cover art alone!

The story was good, but I had some issues that really came down to personal taste. There are many, many characters named and introduced throughout and I got held up trying to absorb them all and recollect who was who and who was related to whom and how. I also found some of Brynja's reactions to extraordinary sights and information to be somewhat lacking, and her insanely powerful abilities to be something of a hindrance to my enjoyment overall. But again, I stress that these are just my personal opinions and should in no way hold you back. The book is well-written, the love story appealing, and the mythology fun. So get a copy for yourself! I look forward to seeing how the story comes along in Book 2!
