In the first installment of the innovative Weather Wardens series, warden Joanne Baldwin ends up a Djinni while trying to prove herself innocent of murder. A powerful djinni did what he had to to keep Joanne safe. But she realizes just how weird her new life is when she attends her own funeral and discovers that the repercussions of her transformation are reverberating in the human and ethereal world.
Now she's trying to prove herself to ancient and venerable djinni Jonathan, rescue her lover David, avoid being claimed and stuck in a bottle, and warn her former colleagues of an incoming metaphysical storm of planetary proportions.
Sexy and suspenseful, this follow-up to Ill Weather exceeds the previous volume in sheer excitement and edge-of-your-seat suspense. Caine creates vibrant, over-the-top characters. Joanne is at once funny and heartbreaking in her attempts to adjust to her new way of life. Her death certainly hasn't affected her wry humor or her fashion sense! While the attitude and atmosphere may be reminiscent of Tanya Huff and Jim Butcher, Caine has developed an intricate and unique system of magic that stands on its own merits. (Aug., 352 pp., $6.99)
