Fans of Caine's Weather Warden novels will probably enjoy this new series set in the same world. However, new readers will likely be lost -- there's minimal exposition, and aspects of the milieu are confusing, in particular the purpose of the Wardens themselves. That said, Cassiel is an interesting protagonist, and the plot moves briskly. Her growing understanding and sympathy for humanity is one of the highlights of the novel.
