Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Less than a year ago, Joanne Baldwin was an agent for one of the most powerful organizations in the world, entrusted with the safety of millions of lives on a daily basis. Now she's a scantily clad "weather girl" for a Ft. Lauderdale television station.

After losing her job as a Weather Warden (those with the ability to manipulate the weather and avowed to protect humankind), Joanne is finding life in the "real world" not as enticing as she once thought. Her job as a cheesecake weather girl is humiliating, especially with a lecherous head meteorologist (deliciously named Marvelous Marvin McLarty) who delights in devising new ways to embarrass her on camera. But with her supernatural Djinn lover slowly dying and a recently divorced, shopping-addicted sister camping out on her sofa, Joanne's problems couldn't possibly get worse -- or could they? Throw in a highly suspicious detective bent on arresting Joanne on murder charges, a Djinn civil war, and a monster of an approaching hurricane --and suddenly Marvelous Marvin's antics don't seem so bad!

Wildly unpredictable weather -- and women! -- and an extraordinarily entertaining female protagonist with enough sexy panache and irreverent attitude to make Laurell K. Hamilton's Anita Blake look like an octogenarian etiquette expert, Rachel Caine's Weather Warden saga (Chill Factor, Heat Stroke, et al.) is an absolute delight to read. You want guilty pleasures? Read these novels, which are a little romance, a little urban fantasy, and a whole lot of fun. Barometer not included. Paul Goat Allen

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).

    Another Wild Ride!

    The story starts off w/ Jo and her efforts to make a living as a normal person. Unfortunately things kept getting in the way of that. Like her job as a weather girl and the humiliation she went through just to make ends meet. Her sister barges into her life out of nowhere. David is not in the best frame of mind and strength. In fact he keeps siphoning off her strengths and is bleeding her dry magically. Jonathan makes two tough decisions after all the threats he's made to Jo don't work. The outcome of those decisions are extraordinary. I love the ending of this book and can't wait to pick up the next.

    It was okay

    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
