Orbit Books publishes six new paperbacks in October, including Eye of the Tempest by Nicole Peeler:
“Nothing says â€˜homeâ€™ like being attacked by humans with very large guns, as supernatural halfling Jane True discovers when she arrives in Rockabill. These are professionals, brought in to kill, and they bring her love interest Anyan down before either of them can react. Seeing Anyan fall awakens a terrible power within Jane, and she nearly destroys herself taking out their attackers.
Jane wakes, weeks later, to discover that sheâ€™s not the only thing thatâ€™s been stirring. Something underneath Rockabill is coming to life: something ancient, something powerful, and something that just might destroy the world.
Jane and her friends must act, striking out on a quest that only Jane can finish. For whatever lurks beneath the waters of the Old Sow must be stopped . . . and Janeâ€™s just the halfling for the job.”
