Chill Factor

This is the 3rd book in the Weather Warden series by Rachel Caine.

Book Blurb:

Joanne Baldwin is a Weather Warden - her specialty is air - so far she has helped protect the human race from monster storms, been killed, reborn as a Djinn, and then restored to her original form. She has been through a lot - and stuck her neck out many times - to save innocent lives. Now she's rolling the dice to stop an infinitely powerful, deeply disturbed kid from destroying the world.....

A teenager named Kevin has holed up in style at a Vegas hotel with the most powerful Djinn in the world, planning who knows what kind of mischief. The Wardens' senior leadership is dead, Djinn are disappearing, and a secret society wants to help Joanne destroy Kevin, even if doing so kills her (again). But everybody in Vegas has a game going, and Joanne has to learn the rules fast because stakes have never been higher - and all hell is about to break loose....

Despite some senseless (to me) weather jargon - I really enjoy this series. LOL

I like the Joanne character - she is tough and resourceful. She does what needs to be done to get the job done and she doesn't wait around for someone else to come up with a plan of action. Joanne is quick on her feet, often flying by the seat of her pants, and crashing head long into whatever nasty is heading her way. She would rather meet something head on than wait for it to come to her. :)

I give this book 3 out of 5 stars. :)

Hi Michelle!

Excellent review, this is another new author for me and I haven't even heard of this series. I'll be checking it out.

Thanks!

Dottie,

Rachel Caine also writes a YA series called the Morganville Vampires - I really like that one as well. She recently released the first book in a new series about the Djinns that she writes about in the Weather Warden series - I believe the name of that book is Undone. I have it on the shelf - but haven't gotten to it yet. :)
