Joanne Baldwin has the ability to control the weather. She is part of the Wardens Association, a large group of individuals who have talents to manipulate and control the elements, protecting mankind from the ravages of Mother Nature. Unfortunately she is also running from the accusation of murder and there are some storms she just can’t control. Can she get to the one man she believes can save her and will the infamous Djinn help or just get in her way?
Ill Wind is the first book in the Weather Warden series. I’ve actually had this book for quite a while, having picked it up on one of my charity shop rampages. I’ve only just gotten around to reading it and I wish I had done so sooner!
Rachel Caine has a very clear way of writing and it’s very easy to read. The major characters are compelling and you are into the action as soon as you start chapter one. I like the way it is laid out, you are in on the action as it happens then have brief flashback periods that fill you in on the history of the main character, Joanne.
I finished the book wanting to immediately read the rest of the series which is a good sign but unfortunately this was the only one I had. The rest will have to wait! Booooo.
