Tempest Knox lives in Luna Bay, a small Island with a history of supernatural occurrences. Most of them caused by her family. She comes from a long line of witches.
When her grandmother disappears, it's up to Tempest to clear out her house. She discovers her grandmother's spell book hidden in a trunk. Tempest has never believed the witch rumors and while drunk, she reads a love spell.
The next morning she finds a naked man on the doorstep. Add to that a coven working out of the local tea shop and her grandmother's strange cat, and Tempest finds herself in over her head.
Interview with Kat Gracey
1. Tell us about your book
Rising Storm is the first book in the Tempest Knox series. Tempest comes from a long line of witches but doesn't know it in the beginning of the book. She's dealing with the disappearance of her grandmother and trying to keep her job. I tried to make her as real as possible. She isn't rich or successful and she hasn't come far since college. She's just a regular woman, living pay check to pay check and the these amazing things start happening to her,
2. What was your inspiration for the book?
I love shows like Charmed and Witches of East End and I wanted to write something similar. But whereas The Charmed Ones are good and fight evil, Temepst's world isn't really black and white. The power in her family tends to corrupt them.
3. Will there be more books in the series?
Yes, the next book will answer the question of Tempest's grandmother's disappearance. And there is a shock in store for Tempest.
4. Who was your favorite character to write about?
Probably Will. He has a lot of layers and you don't know if he's good or bad, but I think even he doesn't know that.
5. Why should readers pick up your book?
I think if you like magic, witches and shapeshifter then you will find this book enjoyable.
