Dragged through hell, can two immortal lovers accept their fates?

Several citizens of Coventon have experienced bizarre near-drowning incidents, their lungs filling with water despite the fact that they’re nowhere near water. These mysterious cases bewilder the medical community. When people begin to whisper about possible supernatural causes it makes Dr. Xandra Carrington even more concerned since her family are wiccans, and she doesn’t want to deal with the negative attention this will bring to them. So she’s more than a little put off when a hot-shot reporter shows up to investigate.

Jian Akvo is an award-winning journalist and author. When he arrives to investigate the strange incidents, he’s captivated by the beautiful, young doctor. However, Xandra is cautious of Jian. As soon as she met him, she knew he was immortal, and when she discovered he was a Krevellian water wizard, she knew she couldn’t trust him, because no one can trust a Krevellian.

Despite that, they end up joining forces in an effort to solve the mystery. Together they will face enemies and even visit the depths of hell. And during the journey Xandra finds herself drawn to Jian. Is it possible for the immortal daughter of a witch to find happiness with a water wizard? And will they find the answers they seek before it’s too late?

Two immortals, two different species from two different walks of life. Will they be able to make a life for themselves?

Xandra is a witch, a healer who works in a hospital to save lives. But one day, the unexpected happens. Throughout the town unexplainable drownings brings Jian AkJvo, an author and journalist, to hospitals asking questions. Their first meeting sparks something between them.

Xandra is a healing witch, while Jian is a Krevellian. The strange drownings opens up a secret that will change not only Xandra but all that is dear to her. Child of Tempest is packed to the brim with information. It took some time for me to take it all in and get my head wrapped around everything. Nonetheless, the plot is simple but with all the history attached, this book is part eye opening and part just really in depth. I did love reading the history and the plot came together to create a complex story.  Also, this erotic book is perfect for any reader who does not like extreme erotic content. The relationship between them is not only passionate but also has a lot of give and take.

The ending was a happy ending and a suspense for me, both of which I loved. Suspense because the overall conclusion of some of the plot apparently comes in the next book in the series. There were some things that was very difficult for me to understand and I think the reason for this is that this is the eighth book in the series. This isn’t necessarily a stand-alone book.

Readers who enjoy romance mixed with their science fiction and mystery should give this series a try. When the conclusion to this story comes, it’s going to be exciting!
