After nine amazing books, Caine delivers the heart-stopping finale in the adventures of Weather Warden Joanne Baldwin. As longtime fans know, Joanne is a never-say-die fighter, and regrettably, she is going to need every ounce of that nerve in this climactic novel. Although the world hangs in the balance, the core of this series has been the unbreakable relationship between Joanne and the Djinn David. Hang on tight as this tale races toward its breathtaking conclusion!

As a result of defeating a longtime enemy and saving the world, Joanne and her new husband David discover they have lost all their powers. Even more frightening is the realization that the Earth has been poisoned and the Djinn are dying. The delicate balance of nature is devolving into chaos, and Mother Earth is waking up.

This is not a good thing, for without the Djinn to play intermediary, Mother Nature is inclined to remove mankind from the picture … permanently. Joanne, David, Cherise and Kevin set out on a quest to stop Mother Nature’s judgment day, but the odds are long indeed! (ROC, Aug., 320 pp., $7.99)

Total Eclipse

Submitted by Robin in PA on January 1, 2014 - 8:25pm.

Mother Nature has awakened...and she's not happy. Tornadoes, fires, hurricanes and earthquakes have sprung up all over the world. Weather Warden Joanne Baldwin and her husband/Djinn David have both lost their powers, helplessly watching humans die. All of the Djinn have suddenly vanished, leaving the weather wardens to fight on their own. Joanne and David know they must appeal to the Oracles to communicate with Mother Nature or all of mankind will be destroyed.

This is the last book in the Weather Warden series. Joanne and David, with the help of Cherise, Kevin and Lewis, must search out the three Oracles in order to communicate with Mother Nature. We have the usual action-packed story, but some of it did begin to get monotonous. There are some surprise twists in this book, including the death of a couple characters. But the last 50 pages of this book wraps up the series beautifully. Couldn't have asked for a better ending. My rating: 4 Stars.
