Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Weather Warden Joanne Baldwin hasn't had it easy. In the previous two books in Caine's sharply written series, she "had a really bad week, died, got reborn as a Djinn, had an even worse week, and saved the world, sort of" and "died again, sort of" before waking up human. Normally, Weather Wardens must simply protect the rest of the human race from deadly weather, but Joanne, who's deeply tough, resolutely moral and highly fond of fast cars and "bitchin' shoes," keeps getting tasked with saving the world. This time, a surly teenager named Kevin has holed up in Las Vegas with the world's most powerful Djinn and is wreaking utter havoc. In order to stop him, she'll have to surrender her own Djinn and lover David, die yet again, get resuscitated, interrogated and electrocuted by members of a powerful secret society, and experience countless other injuries and indignities, all the while trying to figure out who-among the detectives, Wardens, Djinns, Ikrits (a dark, undead Djinn), former bosses and former lovers-is really on her side. It's all a bit confusing, for Joanne and readers alike, especially those who haven't followed her through Ill Wind and Heat Stroke, but it's a rollicking good ride. Caine's prose crackles with energy, as does her fierce and lovable heroine. Agent, Lucienne Diver of the Spectrum Literary Agency. (Jan.) Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

Meet the Author

Rachel Caine is the author of more than twenty novels, including the "Weather Warden" series. She was born at White Sands Missile Range, which people who know her say explains a lot. She has been an accountant, a professional musician, and an insurance investigator, and still carries on a secret identity in the corporate world. She and her husband, fantasy artist R. Cat Conrad, live in Texas with their iguanas, Popeye and Darwin; a mali uromastyx named (appropriately) O’Malley; and a leopard tortoise named Shelley (for the poet, of course).

    Chill Factor

    Joanne is human again, but that's little comfort. She and her Djinn, David, are on the run from the Wardens, the Djinn, and a crazy kid who hates her and has a powerful Djinn of his own. David is her only consolation, until the Wardens take him away, intending to trade him for the more powerful Jonathan. Then, someone with an older grudge kidnaps Joanne, and she finds herself in the middle of a deadly game where she does not know the rules, much less who to trust. Not only her life, but the entire world hangs in the balance. .............. **** The action never lets up in this third entry into an exciting series. Joanne is quirky and brutally honest. The tragedy and humor mix very well in these books, making them seem true to life, albeit filled with fantasy. ****

    Wonderful urban fantasy

    After turning from a Weather Warden to a Djinn and back to a mortal Warden again, Joanne Baldwin is on her way to Las Vegas. Accompanied by her Djinn lover David, she seeks Kevin to take away the bottle that holds Jonathan, the most powerful Djinn in the world. The wardens want Kevin dead because thanks to him several of the top leadership is dead and he has power enhanced by Jonathan to destroy the world.......................... Joanne and David are locked out of Las Vegas by magical wards so Lewis, once the most powerful warden in the world until Kevin stole his powers, devises a way for Joanne to momentarily die and be revived inside the city. She finds Jonathan and Kevin but it is Jonathan who manipulates the troubled teen to find the Djinn that have gone missing for the last six years. Joanne is kidnapped by the Ma¿at, an organization whose members are dedicated to freeing the Djinn from their human masters and destroy the warden organization for endangering the earth. They try to convert Joanne to their cause but she escapes and with the help of some allies fights the real mastermind behind all the troubles.................................. Book three in the Weather Warden Series is an action packed urban fantasy. There are many surprises and unexpected plot developments to keep this series fresh and interesting so that readers will continue to read future books to find out what happens next to the ethical, moral and vulnerable heroine. David helps Joanne in so many ways that readers will be in awe of the Djinn¿s power to love a mortal. Rachel Caine has written a novel worthy of an award nomination.............................

    Chill Factor

    I found Chill Factor to be a bit scattered but still entertaining. I found myself skipping some pages because some parts of the book were more wordy than I would have liked. David and Jo still have that tortured relationship and the abuse to it seems to be getting worse. If you are a Dave and Jo fan, you will not like the ending. I was pleased at the progress Lewis and Kevin had made. My disappointment in Jonathan continues. This is still a great series and I look forward to reading Windfall.

    Highly recommended

    Imagine a fantasy-series with strong elements of surprise and a very strong heroine. Imagine a series like that which doesn't get side-tracked into sexual fantasies. Imagine a heroine who manages to remain very human and very sympathetic in spite of the vast changes through which she's put. Imagine meteorology that is convincing in its detail, fascinating in its power. That's what you get in the 'Weather Warden' series. Among the best in the 'urban fantasy' genre.
