4.0 out of 5 stars Weather Warden Series - book 8, 12 Aug 2010
This review is from: Cape Storm (Weather Warden, Book 8) (Mass Market Paperback)
Cape Storm is book 8 in the Weather Warden series and I would strongly recommend reading the series in order. I think if you tried to read this as a stand alone book you'd probably be missing too much of the back story to get the full enjoyment from the book. I'm really enjoying this urban fantasy series though so I'd definitely recommend checking it out starting with Ill Wind. Although this review won't contain spoilers for Cape Storm it is impossible to review without giving hints to previous events in the series so if you haven't started reading it yet I'd recommend you don't read this review.

Instead of enjoying her honeymoon with David this installment sees Jo running for her life from a hurricane that seems determined to destroy her. In order to stop the hurricane devastating the coast of Florida the Wardens and New Djinn hijack a luxury cruise ship and take to the sea with the hurricane on their tail. With Bad Bob feeding the storm with his new weapon and Jo fighting to stop his mark from taking over her completely they're in for a difficult journey - even the combined powers of the Wardens and the Djinn may not be enough to stop the force of this hurricane.

I've been a big fan of Jo and David since the first book and I still love the pair of them as a couple and as individuals. Jo is finding it harder and harder to fight the darkness of Bad Bob's mark so we see quite a change in her personality as the story develops and I was left wondering if she would ever be able to escape from his clutches. Lewis is forced to make some very difficult decisions in this installment - decisions that are going to have serious consequences for the already strained relationship between the Wardens and the Djinn. Cherise also has her role to play despite being the only main character without any supernatural abilities, I'm liking her character more and more with every book.

Overall this was a fast paced story in the series, action packed from the beginning it will leave you on the edge of your seat. Although I felt the ending was tied up a little too easily there are still major consequences for Jo and David that have left me itching to get my hands on Total Eclipse (the final book in the series). I'm looking forward to seeing how Rachel Caine manages to tie up all the loose threads in the ending. If you're a fan of the series then I'd definitely recommend Cape Storm and if you haven't started the series yet then I'd highly recommend it to urban fantasy fans looking for something a bit different but you really should start with book 1 Ill Wind.
