Ill Wind (Weather Warden Series #1)

Ill Wind - Rachel Caine Sometimes it’s good to be late to the party. I just started reading the Weather Warden series and it is so nice to know that the series is complete and that I won’t have to wait to read the next book. There are 9 books in the Weather Warden series and I plan to read them all. The Weather Wardens has a unique premise: a group of people are tasked with controlling the weather and to keep it from destroying lives and property. These Weather Wardens are assigned beings known as djinns to assist them.Ill Wind is the first book in the series and it focuses on Joanne Baldwin. Jo has been marked by a demon and is on the run accused of murder. Meanwhile, a storm is tracking her every move. Her only option is to find her mentor, Lewis Orwell. The story is told through Jo’s voice and flashes back to the past where bit by bit, the story is revealed. I loved the beautiful, descriptive writing. The author managed to personify the weather as malevolent entities seeking destruction. She manages to neatly explain weather phenomena. Ill Wind is action packed and as unpredictable as the weather. It was really hard to put this book down. I’m looking forward to reading the second book Heat Stroke soon. Review posted on Badass Book Reviews.
