First in the new Weather Warden series...

Joanne Baldwin is a Weather Warden. Usually, all it takes is a wave of her hand to tame the most violent weather. But now, she's trying to outrun another kind of storm: accusations of corruption and murder. So, she's resorting to the very human tactic of running for her life...

Her only hope is Lewis, the most powerful warden known. Unfortunately, he's stolen not one but three bottles of Djinn-making him the most wanted man on earth. Still, she's racing hard to find him-before the bad weather closes in fast...

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).

  • Watch out for stormy weather!

    Joanne has grown up suspecting little by little that there was something different about her. Every monumentous event of her life had coincided with equally monumentous weather. As an adult Joanne is a Weather Warden, capable of controling wind and rain and had joined a network of other Weather Wardens who control the elements to keep Mother Nature from ripping the world apart. When Joanne is accused of the murder of another Weather Warden she finds herself running for her life from the organization she dedicated her life to, with no one to trust but herself. Honestly, I picked these books up because I thought they were novels written by a wonderfully nice lady who I met in cyberspace. I read Rachel Caine's young adult vampire story, Glass Houses, and enjoyed it immensely. Thinking the Weather Warden series also to be YA books I began reading them knowing I liked Ms. Caine's writing, but without any real expectations. However, I think I might of have found a new favorite author! I loved Ill Wind, it was different, new, exciting but definately NOT a young adult novel. Ms. Caine's taken a totally fresh idea (something I've never read before) and fleshed it out into a believeable world. Ill Wind is an urban fantasy that moves quickly, sucking the reader along with it. My only complaints were I do not typically like flashbacks, there are many of them in this story. Every time the main character would go in to a flashback I mentally groaned, but then I'd get in to the flash back and be just as caught up by that as the main story. They are necessary and they worked! I'd highly recommend this story to anyone looking for a new and different fantasy read.
