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).

    spellbinding romantic fantasy

    The Wardens controls adverse climatic conditions to insure that no at catastrophes occurs on the earth. Until yesterday, Joanne Baldwin was a weather warden, but she lost her life in a battle with some creatures of the Never Never. David, a masterless Djinn converted her into a Djinn. She must learn to use her powers and take energy from the earth to survive because currently she siphons David¿s life-force and if she soon does not stop they both will die.---- Jonathan the first and most powerful Djinn, sends her to Patrick, the only other human to successfully transform. Patrick betrays Joanne leading to her enslavement by seventeen years old Kevin. The teen¿s stepmother, the sadistic sociopath Yvette uses Joanne as bait to lure David into a trap. While Joanne battles her enslavement, the rip in the inter-dimensional Void widens causing the deaths of Djinn and problems for Wardens. Only David and Joanne can fix the tear, but they are occupied with personal concerns of freedom.---- Book Two of the Weather Warden saga is a spellbinding tale that will appeal to fans of romantic fantasy. The love between David and Joanne is so powerful and unique that their feelings change the natural order of the world. Most Djinn detest humans for enslaving their kin to use their powers for the master¿s benefit but the lead couple¿s relationship defies even the laws of nature. The enslavement is very mindful of America¿s slavery in which Rachel Caine makes the case that even when the master is a kind benefactor the relationship remains an abomination. This urban fantasy is a thought provoking action-packed thriller.---- Harriet Klausner

    Joanne Baldwin returns in book two of the Weather Warden series,

    Joanne Baldwin returns in book two of the Weather Warden series, this time around she's a Djinn. David, the Djinn in book one that joined Joanne on her journey helped her become a Djinn, but at what cost? With everyone against her, Joanne must learn to harness her new powers and it's another race against the clock. The duo notice some odd power is lingering only to realize there is a huge problem at hand that is growing rapidly. David is sadly, absent for most of the book, so Joanne is told to learn to master her powers under the tutelage of the only other human that successfully became a Djinn.

    This time the book focuses mainly on Djinn, after reading book one I was curious about them. All I really knew was that Wardens were able to use their energy and that they were servants to whatever Warden had their bottle. While this held true in Heat Stroke, I got to learn more and it rounded out the story quite nicely. I can't wait to see what issue arises for Joanne in book three. So far I'm enjoying the series, and recommend it if you haven't read it yet.

    Good

    I'm still enjoying this series, although I thought I was going to like this second book much more, it was just OK. It was interesting to see Jo learn all the Djinn stuff, although as usual all the descriptions of the aetheric, weather, etc could get a little confusing/overwhelming, I just took it at face value and didn't try to fully decipher all of it. There was an interesting twist in the middle that changed the direction of the story, and the book has an interesting looking continuation from here. Although part of the ending annoyed me because of it's easy resolution.

    Heat Stroke - Awesome Read!!

    This book was a fast, for me anyway, read. I loved it all, but got annoyed by a few characters- really who doesn't! I loved the plot and was happy to find that the book started where the last book left off. If you haven't began to read this series, you totally should!!

    STORM IS A COMIN'

    This book only has three chapters and chapter two was the best. I enjoyed reading about Jo's plight. I have this love/really hate thing with Kevin.
    Jo is a djinn in this book after her "love transformation" in the last book. I was worried when I started reading the first few pages that it was going to be only about Jo and David. I'm glad she's in love, but that can be dull. There was some explaining to do with character development at the beginning that was done in the writing style I try to avoid: One line of dialogue and two paragraphs of description/narrative. Can't help it, I love banter. Quickly the book developed and the became a page turner. There are two stories developing, one personal and one involving the world needing to be saved. In a red herring of a move (usually the best part of any book) the two stories intertwine. I absolutely recommend this book. It can stand alone, but probably reading the first one would help.

    Really deserves 4.75

    I really enjoyed this book. I find this series to be very original. I am a bit disappointed that Jo didn't remain how she was (not to give too much away) but it was still good and held my attention nonetheless. David and Jo have got to be one of the most tortured couples I've ever read about. I also hated what happened to Lewis and Jonathan by the end. I'm looking forward to seeing what horrible destruction Kevin will cause.

    Okay not my fav

    I bought the whole series cause I love the idea of people being able to play with the earths elements. Well I read the first book and it took me forever to get through it! Read the first book see how you like it then try the other ones. They are all just the same. My sister loved them though so it all depends on the reader.

    Heat Stroke

    Joanne's life as a weather warden is over, now she's a free agent Djinn, if she can survive training. Her boyfriend, the Djinn David, sort of broke a rule or two to convert her from mortal to Djinn, and now they have been separated so that Jo can be trained properly. Her instructor may look like Santa, but Patrick is anything but a jolly old elf. Barely has she begun her schooling of hard knocks when Jo's old friend Lewis turns up wanting a favor namely, Jo to seal a continuum rift. It's dangerous, but she's the only one for the job. Unfortunately, it sets off a chain of events that could kill all Djinn and wardens, gets Jo trapped by a hormonal stepson of a woman who has a long grudge against her and David, and may lead her to the truth about herself which will either be a wonderful thing or destroy her utterly. ..................... **** This series improves with each book. Jo is smart and snappy, but has a heart of gold that engineers an ending that is beautiful. This book has humor, action, romance, and a bittersweetness that can't be defined here without telling you the surprise. ****
