What's been really interesting about the way Rachel Caine is building these stories is that it's not just the same or similar story rehashed each time, but she's introducing new elements with each book. In book 2 we had the Ifrit; now in Book 3 we are introduced to a whole new secret society working against the Weather Wardens. Once again Joanne's past catches up with her and influences the situations in which she finds herself - old enemies come back to haunt her.
Rachel Caine has very effectively built the love affair between Joanne and David in these three books. They are learning to trust each other, and although the time they actually spend together in this book is very limited, you get a real sense of closeness between them. Of course Joanne's other potential beaux are still out there - Lewis, Paul, even perhaps Jonathan... but it's nice to read, for once, of a sassy, modern woman being consistent and committed to her man. Even if he isn't a man but a Djinn.
Like book 2, this one ended with a definite idea of where the next book is going to go. All is not well in Joanne's world and she evidently has a lot of work to do in book 4 to rescue David from the fix he's found himself in. However, these books probably do work OK as standalone books, although I think this one might have been a little confusing if you hadn't read the previous two.
I love the way that Rachel Caine portrays her heroine - she's just so much fun. Long may she continue writing!
The blurb reads: "In Rachel caine's ILLWIND and HEAT STROKE, Weather Warden extraordinaire Joanna Baldwin, who protects the human race from monster storms, was killed, reborn as a Djinn, and then restored to her original form. She's 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 the stakes have never been higher-and all hell is about to break lose..."
If you liked the style of the first two books, then you'll definitely like CHILL FACTOR. I wouldn't recommend starting with this book; if you're new to the series, order ILL WIND first.
Once again, Joanne is sassy, well dressed (when she can be), and in trouble. The book opens with a similar sense of Deja-vu, with her and David driving on the road. The growing bond, respect and love between these two is a pleasure to read; they aren't given much page time in this book, but you really feel that what they have is real and everlasting (if they survive that long!).Read more ›
In this third installment we find Joanne Baldwin in a race against time to save her friend Lewis and to save the world.
Racing towards Las Vagas to stop a young boy who has managed to claim the most powerful Djinn in exsistance and is now holding up in LasVagas and playing havoc with the worlds atmosphere.
So now Joanne must find a way in and find a way to stop him before it`s all too late.
Gambling with her life Joanne faces her hardest challenge of all - to stay alive, again.
(sex is very obscure, and language is way toned down-yea)
Just finished, and yea, I really liked this one. Great plot twists and turns and great bad guys and some you think are bad, that turn out good and visa versa. Way good. 'Cept, of course, the ending. Now I have to read the next one, because, it leaves you unsatisfied...in a BIG way.
This author is very good at that. No wonder Sherrah read seven of them!
On we go..
