Deadly Destinations: Nicole Peeler’s Jane True’s Guide to Rockabill

**Visit All Things Urban Fantasy today for her Deadly Destination tour with Tara A. Fuller & enter for a chance to win Inbetween**

Deadly Destinations treks to Jane True’s hometown of Rockabill, Maine in the amazing Jane True series by Nicole Peeler. The fifth book in the series, Tempest’s Fury, is available now. Want to know what we thought of this series? Read Sheila’s reviews for Tempest Rising, Tracking the Tempest, Tempest’s Legacy, Eye of the Tempest. A big thanks to Orbit Books for today’s giveaway! One lucky person will receive a copy of Tempest’s Fury.

_________________________________________________________________________________

Hi folks! Jane True here. I star in Nicole Peeler’s series, imaginatively called “The Jane True Series.” I live in a town called Rockabill, Maine, which is sorta near Eastport.

People have been asking me what there is to do in Rockabill, so I thought I’d write a list of “Things to See In Rockabill.” Hope this helps all you tourists!

1. The big thing to see in Rockabill is the Old Sow. It’s the fifth biggest whirlpool in the world. It makes a sucking sound like a pig. And sometimes you might find a body in it, although usually that body is mine. I’m part selkie, and I do love a good swim.

Tempest Rising (#1) by Nicole PeelerTracking the Tempest (#2) by Nicole Peeler

2. Anyan’s Gadonk: Anyan is a barghest, which is sort of a shapeshifting man-dog. Totally not a werewolf. But he lives in Rockabill and has an amazing gadonk. He goes to the post office most Wednesday mornings, but he always parks by my bookstore. You can follow his gadonk from the one to the other, awestruck by its beauty. Just try not to drool. Or maybe wear a bib?

3. Read It and Weep: That’s our local bookstore, and where I work. Before you stalk Anyan’s backside, you can get a coffee.

4. The Trough: Our local diner. It’s amazing! Get the tuna melt. And if your waitress is a stoned surfer-girl, she’s really a shapeshifter! We’re full of surprises in Rockabill.

Eye of the Tempest (#4) by Nicole Peeler

5. Gus’s boulder: Gus is a stone spirit. His boulder isn’t actually that interesting, but people keep asking about it. For some reason, everyone loves Gus, although he’s kind of rude.

6. Grizelda Montague: Grizzie is a person, but she may as well be a landmark for all the requests I get to see her. She’s very tall, and will stand out. Not least as she’ll be wearing anything from a latex bikini to a chainmail miniskirt. Sans panties. She’s very naughty, though, so approach with caution.

7. My house: I’m not actually giving you my address, you nuts! But you can find me at Read It And Weep. Or following Anyan’s gadonk. While wearing a bib.

So that’s some of the sights of Rockabill! I hope you come visit and enjoy your stay.

About this Book:

Jane’s not happy. She’s been packed off to England to fight in a war when she’d much rather be snogging Anyan. Unfortunately, Jane’s enemies have been busy stirring up some major trouble — the kind that attracts a lot of attention. In other words, they’re not making it easy for Jane to get any alone time with the barghest, or to indulge in her penchant for stinky cheese.

Praying she can pull of a Joan of Arc without the whole martyrdom thing, Jane must lead Alfar and halflings alike in a desperate battle to combat an ancient evil. Catapulted into the role of Most Unlikely Hero Ever, Jane also has to fight her own insecurities as well as the doubts of those who don’t think she can live up to her new role as Champion.

Along the way, Jane learns that some heroes are born. Some are made. And some are bribed with promises of food and sex.

    Bwahaha! Anyan’s gadonk! Too funny! Jane is a riot. I’m only on the 3rd book in the series, so I’m waaaay behind, but I love Jane’s snarky voice. Really fabulous!

    I actually pre-ordered this book since I wouldn’t miss Jane’s adventures for the world. Unfortunatly, while the rest of the series books I already have look like the book pictured above, I received a whole different kind of copy, so I would love to have this one to complete my collection. I read the book, and it broke my heart! It is actually very mean that now I’ll have to wait this long to see how Jane’s adventure ends. Love the series! Bye.

    I would highly recommend this series. It is my favorite! I have read and reread many times. Jane is one of my favorite female characters and the surrounding cast and crew just add to the series. Nicole Peeler rocks! I’m am counting down the days until the next book is the series is released.

    This is a great fun series and one of the main things I love–the fact that the covers have stayed the same style. I hate when the powers that be decide to do new covers on an existing series.
