About 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).

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

Hmm I recall the first in the series Ill Wind had had in its burb for this book spoiler for the first.Lets see if I cqan avoid that. Hmm Jo Baldwin is not finding it easy adjusting to her new life and is assigned a mentor? can he be trusted?can anyone?fun fantasy read definately a womans read fashion and posing are as important as adventure and pyrotechnics. It comes to an abrupt halt half way through a story line.

This is rare for me, because I'm usually not one to gush over a book, but I really did freaking LOVE this one! I think Caine's writing is brilliant. Just the right amount of action and humor, a little romance mixed in...just an awesome book. Rachel Caine is fast becoming one of my favorite authors.

So Jo is dead and she needs to learn what being a Djinn means. David is keeping her alive and she's trying to work out what's attacking the worlds. Meanwhile some of her enemies are trying to take over the world again, this time she has more and less power than she did at the beginning. An interesting story with plenty of twists and turns but definitely the middle of a series.

The main character doesn't seem to learn anything from the first book, and comes off as even less sympathetic. Not really worth it.

The upside is being a dijin gives you the potential to command huge amounts of power. The downside is that you have to be a slave to tap into it. So, what happens when the cosmic powers of a fantastic being are used and abused by the immoral? Check out the book to find out.For me Book two of the Weather Warden series was just as wonderful a story as Ill Wind and definately left me eager for more.

Love this series. This one's about the consequences of the end of Ill Wind. There are one or two things left hanging at the end that I'm trusting will show up in the 3rd book, which is waiting for me.

Joanne Baldwin, formerly a Weather Warden with the power to control the weather, lately died in action and was remade as a djinn, a creature of immense power but also immense vulnerability to being bound to service. As she tries to control her newfound powers and negotiate her relationship with the sexy djinn who made her, a strange new magic threatens djinn and, possibly, all existence. I found the romance far too tell-y for my taste ¿ it was just hearing how sexy the guy was and how good the sex was, again and again ¿ though perhaps it's just been too long since I read the first one.

She's hot, he's hot, the car is ridiculous. I'm seriously, it's a Viper, which a 10 Cylinder engine- turns out that's a thing. But Mona aside (oh yeah, the car has a name, she's the hottest thing since Kitt... Your moment of Zen...) what's really changed with Joanne since the last book is that she's dead. Or well, deadish. When a team of Weather Wardens chased her across the US, it ended in a misguided deathmatch of epic proportions. Much to the dismay of her old, hot, dead sexy Italian teacher, the team got her. Her Djinn, David, had other things to say. He brought her across to the other side and now she's experiencing the world, and Weather Warding, as a djinn. Unfortunately, despite being all powerful, she can get claimed by another Warden, so she has to fly under the radar while she tracks down the schism in the Wardens and clears herself. If it weren't for David, and the car, she might call it quits. The future was looking stormy. Anne Jindra On YouTube BadFantasyRx https://badfantasyrx.blogspot.com/2017/07/heat-stroke.html

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.
