Ill Wind: Weather Warden Series 1

Saturday, May 23, 2009

Teaser: Joanne Baldwin is desperately racing across the country. She's been afflicted by a deadly curse, and is on the run from those who would like to frame her with murder. While fighting to stay alive and hidden, she is searching for any clues that would lead her to her old friend Lewis, a guy who is also on the run and hasn't been seen for years. If she doesn't find him soon, she's as good as dead.

Short Thought: Sexy, light, fun, and romantic fantasy story that steps away from the vampire and werewolf themes to which so many others in the genre are clinging.

Expanded Thoughts: This is the ultimate summer read for the romantic fantasy genre. It's fun; it's simple; and it not long. It is also a nice change from where a lot of the chic fantasy series are going. (Vampires, Werewolves, Shapeshifters, etc). This novel focuses on Djinn (Genies) and using science to control the elements. (Weather, Fire, Earth, etc).

Enough about the fantasy element, what about the romance? I think the author created a perfect counterpart to Joanne in David. He is the perfect guy for every reader. Their dynamic and history is very interesting, and, dare I say it, fiery. It is one of the best romances in this genre I have seen in awhile. I'm curious to see where it goes.

Additional Notes: This novel contains mild sexual scenes and themes.

Additional Notes (2): This is the first book in the Weather Warden Series by Rachel Caine.
