"If the Weather Wardens really existed I would definitely want to be one"
A storm is coming and Weather Warden, Joanne Baldwin is
about to end up right in the middle of it. She should be
enjoying a relaxing honeymoon with her Djinn husband, David
but instead she is not running from the hurricane that is
On a hijacked luxury cruise liner Jo and David are joined
by an army of fellow Wardens and Djinn. The attempt to lure
the storm away from the helpless people on land works but
the storm is still out there. The combined magic and power
of the Wardens and Djinn don't seem to be enough to stop
the storm but that may have something to do with the power
mad ex-Weather Warden who is controlling it.
Book eight in the Weather Warden series doesn't give you
time to catch your breath. Thrown straight into the storm,
the action doesn't stop till the very end. All the elements
are, as usual, against Jo but this time she has to fight
harder than ever before. The setting is an unusual but
interesting choice, the story just flows and the characters
play their parts well.
The Weather Warden series is an amazingly fresh take on the
elements that we take for granted. If the Weather Wardens
really existed I would definitely want to be one. There is
nothing else out there like this series, this is as unique
as it gets. Not to be missed come rain or shine. Rachel
Caine has brought us eight great books in the series and
hopefully this won't be the last.
