    Graet urban fantasy

    The Djinn Cassiel was ancient when man had yet to appear on the earth. She is one of the Old Ones wanting nothing to do with humanity as she believes they are beneath her. Unlike David, she never lived amidst these human fleas; preferring life on the aether plane of pure energy. She is cold and treacherous even to her own kind. <BR/><BR/>Her life crashed when her Master, the newly made Conduit Ashan orders her to perform a task, but she refuses. As punishment for saying no, he changes her substance and exiles her in human form from the aether. Stunned Cassiel still needs aether energy to survive, but can only obtain it through the help of a weather warden. It is arranged that earth warden Manny Rocha will be her aether supplier in return for her assisting him with his job. The longer she remains in human form, the more she learns how to feel and that soon leads to her caring deeply for Manny and his family even his brother Luis. When tragedy strikes, instead of walking away to find a new host, Cassie and Luis team up seeking to find Manny¿s kidnapped daughter who Cassiel has learned to love.<BR/><BR/>Rachel Caine, weather warden writing wizard, begins a sidebar series with the outcast Cassiel that will enthrall her fans as this is an excellent addition to the growing Caine mythos. Cassiel is terrific as a haughty essence who struggles with humanization learning first hand what a human is. Her transformation is brilliant as she is UNDONE by Manny and his family. With an abduction to add suspense, this superb urban fantasy enhances the author¿s universe while setting up the sequel.<BR/><BR/>Harriet Klausner

    An Awesome Read With A Kick-butt Character!!

    Also, I have not read the Weather Warden series yet, but that did not confuse me at all. If you're wondering, Undone is a continuation of the Weather Warden series, but with new characters. I'm beginning to wonder. I am really liking Cassiel, the main character in this book. I tend to play favorites, so when I read the Weather Warden series, I'm hoping I like Joanne, but I don't think I will. And, I hope Cassiel shows up in those series.

    I will say, I love Cassiel(like I said before)! She is my type of character. Cold, stern, unforgiving, powerful, heartless, everything you can think of. After all, she is a Djinn. But, then Ashan casts her down from being a Djinn, in the meantime stripping her powers away. Yet, she still remains kick-but! Over time, though, she softens a little, taking mercy on children(Isabel in particular), and Luis.


    Now, Luis, is her love-interest. Yet, I like it that in the book, love isn't the main focus. The focus is more on the war, and the mystery of what happens to Isabel. Overall, this is just an action-packed book that you will enjoy. At least, I did. But, I really like Rachel Caine, since she is an amazing author. For example, her Morganville Vampire series are awesome! I'll definitely be picking up the second book, Unknown, at the library, as soon as it arrives(I put it on hold). One last warning for Undone, don't get attached to Manny(or Angela). I won't say why, but I'm warning you.

    Extraordinary

    The main character is both sexy and tough with a story and characters that are unique. This book comes from an author whose books I had just recently begun reading and of whom I have managed to read most of each series. I must say it was a truly exciting adventure and from the beginning captured my imagination. I enjoyed it very much and highly recommend this book and both Rachel Caine's Weather Warden & Morganville Vampire series'.

    Undone is a brilliant sequel to the Weather Warden series

    I love this spin-off! The main character, a djin fallen from grace, is well developed and believable. She is someone that most readers will empathize with by the second chapter. The plot is very dramatic and consistant with the earlier Weather Warden plots. I anxiously await the next book in the Outcast Season Series. Rachel Caine is my kind of author.
