As a school librarian, I have read a lot of YA books. Tempest was a good story and it kept me interested. The only complaints I have are 1. it ended rather abruptly, I guess I will need to read the next book, but I wished the author had spent a little more time on the end. 2. There weren't really any surprises, I figured out most of what would happen before I got there. Overall, I'd be interested to read the rest of the series to see what happens!
