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).

This was as good as the first in the series, it kept my attention my the beginning to the end. I didn't want to put it down. Great cliffhanger - can't wait to read the 3rd in the series.

I am becoming a very big fan of Rachel Caine, and this new series is my favorite so far. I just finished this book, and i can't wait till the next one comes out. I haven't read the weather warden series but this makes me want to.

Although this book is purely escapism, or brain candy as my partner calls it, I like that it explores what it means to be human. I like the fantasy elements of people who can control earth, wind, air, or fire. If you are familiar with the Weather Warden series, it will help you slip into this book more easily. In fact, I would recommend starting with that series before jumping off into this one. I would start with the first book in this series, though, as this is not a stand-alone book even though she does provide a short introduction to the story arc. I like the main character and find her a typical example of the strong female characters of Rachel Caine.

Enjoyed the book, leaves you hanging a little in the end, which is good but I was hoping for a little more between the 2 main characters. Waiting for book #3

Powerful djinn Cassiel has lived for countless millennia, but never cared either way about humans as she believed she is superior to these beasts. Pearl, once a djinn, but now so much more, was defeated thousands of years ago after she killed the first mortals who walked on the land. Cassiel defeated her, but failed to kill her and feeling the pain of all those she killed drove Pearl insane. She wants to kill all the djinn with her new power source being the mortals, Wardens and their oracles. When Cassiel's master orders her to destroy humanity, she refuses. Her punishment is severe as she is turned into a helpless human, but adapts as Warden Luis Rocha mentors her as a Warden. Peal killed Luis' brother' his wife and kidnapped their daughter Isabel; just like she has abducted other warden offspring to serve as her foot soldiers in the war she plans against the djinn. Luis and Cassiel vow to rescue Isabel as they have seen what Pearl has done to other children. However, it is Cassiel who risks her life to rescue Isabel and the other children locked inside of Pearl's compound. Unknown, the second book in the Outcast series (see Undone) reads somewhat like a middle fantasy tale as it sets up the final confrontation between the forces of Pearl and those with Cassiel. The heroine starts to have strong feelings about Luis; which frightens her because she is becoming too humanized and can never return to what she was as she never gave a damn about humans for the epochs when she was a djinn. Fans will root for her against Pearl and for her to make it with Luis as Rachel Caine provides another compelling urban fantasy.
