More About the Author

Rachel Caine is the author of more than fifteen novels, including the Morganville Vampires and 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, Pop-eye and Darwin, a mali uromastyx named (appropriately) O'Malley, and a leopard tortoise named Shelly (for the poet, of course).

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I loved "Ill Wind", the first in this series, and immediately after finishing it bought the next 3 books in the series.

Heat Stroke, although a very good book (thus the 5 stars) didn't quite work as well for me - it felt rather like a linking book, with a far more `up in the air' ending. It was a relief to me to know that I had the third book already so could continue the story.

Caine's world is more interesting in this book as we start to learn what being a Djinn entails. Joanne is settling into her new life and existence as a Djinn and having to learn, very rapidly, how to control her new powers. We meet new characters, including the almost-deity Jonathan, as well as meeting again some of the previous characters like Paul and Lewis. Caine isn't afraid to kill off some of her characters (I'm not going to spoil it by saying who), although I keep being rather worried for David. We have so many hints at possible love-interest between Joanne and Lewis, Joanne and Paul, that you wonder when David's going to get the chop. Fortunately not in this book. You can spend a lot of time thinking about the interesting side issue as to whether Djinn have the same levels of morality as humans when they can be commanded to kill people, to rape people - perhaps this will be further explored in the next books.

The main `threat that involves Joanne saving the day' in this book I found a little confusing. Yes, the twinkly sparkly things were rather different than a dragon or evil despot, but I didn't really understand how it all worked. Perhaps reading the book again will help me to get it straight in my mind.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Joanne Baldwin has been accused of murder and is chased across the country and finally killed by a team hunting down rogue wardens. Joanne's funeral clears her of all charges but, as her human life ends so her life in the Djinnhood begins, she has to learn - and fast - her new powers as a Djinn. Joanne is then assigned to study with Patrick, the only successful human-to-djinn transformation

The wonderful David returns in this instalment and their relationship continues, this is a real action packed book even more so than Ill Wind. Joanne can create clothes just like that but, Joanne soon learns out that it will take more than a few clever tricks to become a Djinn, she must improve or end up dead!

David has an evil woman on his trail and Joanne ends up with a very randy teenager because Patrick betrays her and sends her to enslavement, the scenes where she has to wear a french maid outfit were so funny.

I found the start of this book a little slow at first but, once the action starts its all go, the ending leaves you hanging on wanting to know what happens next so it may be a good idea to have book three waiting in the wings.

Another brilliant book from this fantastic series.

I love Rachel Caine books. They are a series I want to read. Just when I thought she couldn't get any better with the Morganville collection I discovered the Weather Wardens. Thank you for the excellent stories

A lot's been written already, so I will simply add that this is a great book 2. It's a little slow to get going, but when it does, goodness, does it go! I was deaf to TV, hubby, telephone... the ending is only a break in the action, and book three is totally set up. I'll be getting it soon - the advantage to coming to these late in the day is that I can gulp my way through the first 9 books without having to wait for 'em to be written (I did that with the Sookie Stackhouse books - totally saturated over a week!)
