Blog Tour + Review + #Giveaway: Tempest by C.J. Campbell @XpressoTours

C.J. Campbell
(The Veil Chronicles, #1)
Publication date: August 31st 2021
Genres: Fantasy, Romance, Young Adult

To unearth the truth, she must embrace the legend within.

For eighteen-year-old Lexi, freedom is a luxury. She’s spent her life evading capture for a genetic gift that feels more like a curse. Her bulletproof immunity and monstrous disfigurement is of great interest to a secret organization, but they aren’t the only ones. A cryptic tip alerts Lexi that something else hunts her–something darker.

Desperate to enjoy her life before it’s too late, Lexi leaves the protective cocoon her parents created for her and signs up for art classes at her local college. There she meets Conner, who is confined to a wheelchair, and they become friends who are willing to share each other’s secrets. But a chance encounter with Connor’s foster brother Killian changes everything.

Killian shares the same mysterious secret within his blood as Lexi. Their fateful meeting sets off a chain reaction of catastrophic events that exposes the terrifying truth–Lexi is a celestial queen of a bygone race. Connor is their last royal heir, and Killian is a half-breed abomination hated for his very existence. With Connor kidnapped by an ancient god determined to rid the world of the stain of humanity, Lexi and Killian find themselves under the protection of the secretive Order of Kings.

Lexi believes she’s been thrown into a world of myths and legends, but things are not as they seem. Lexi becomes convinced the Order is keeping dangerous secrets that threaten not just her but all of mankind.

My Review:

Eighteen-year-old Lexi’s world was turned upside down when the very things that have been chasing her all her life finally catch up to her. Her parents are taken from her and she is whisked away by the very people whom her parents have been running from. Lexi learns that her life has been a lie and that she is not the person she was lead to believe she was.

Tempest had many, many twists that kept me on the edge of my seat waiting to for each one to be revealed page after page. There were so many twists that after each twist I was like phew, made it through that, whoa, but then the next thing I knew I was being slammed with another one. Oh man, they just kept rolling out one after another.

All the characters were so amazing. Lexi, Killian, and Connor all held special places in my heart. I wanted to get to know Connor more but how could I after he was taken away. Poor, poor Connor. Is he safe? Is he still alive? Where did they take him? Who took him? Why did they take him? So many questions.

Tempest has plenty of suspense, mystery, magic, and wonderful characters to keep you hooked from beginning to end with never a dull moment in between. I am looking forward to the next book in The Veil Chronicles.

I would recommend Tempest to all fans of magic! One-click your copy of Tempest today for a great adventure with plenty of twists!
