Weather Warden Joanne Baldwin has protected the human race from monster storms, been killed, reborn as a Djinn, and then restored to her original form. Now she's throwing the dice to stop an infinitely powerful, deeply disturbed kid-who is holed up in a Vegas hotel-from bringing on a new ice age.
Rachel Caine is the author of more than twenty novels, including the "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...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Continuously Evolving Universe I think maybe Caine hates Joanne... because I can't imagine an author who loves their character putting her through so much pain and agony! :P It's absolutely amazing the beating that Joanne takes in this novel. In reality, I can't imagine anyone going through that and not wanting to curl up and die. I suppose that's meant to be a testament to how strong she is... but I'm just too caught up in how ridiculous it is! But the story itself is good. There's quite a bit of background in here and we learn a little more about Joanne's principles. It's interesting to see how she handles everything while being betrayed by people she cares so much about. Her integrity is also questioned quite a few times in the story and we really get a sense of how important Joanne feels her work is. It builds up nicely and I really like that the Weather Warden universe continues to evolve. Though you wonder how many times they can really save the world from total annihilation, the characters themselves and the world they live in is constantly changing. That's refreshing and probably really helps the series from becoming too stale.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Another Fast Ride with Joanna Chill Factor is the third book in Rachel Caine's Weather Warden series. I was first introduced to Ill Wind (the first book) in the Kelley Armstrong Book Club. I read it and was amused and picked up the second, Heat Stroke fairly recently. As I am a completist, and felt that I need to finish the series, I picked up both Chill Factor and Windfall a week ago. As a whole, the series is amusing, but not gritty. It is a series quick couple of hours kind of reads. This series is an excellent beach book series. Ill Wind is where it all begins, with Joanne running from the Wardens. Ms. Caine uses a lot of flash backs to tell the story. I don't mind this device, so it doesn't bother me, but those who hate flashbacks: be warned! Heatstroke carries the story forward, introducing new characters and plots, as does Chill Factor. Even though they are a series about the same person doing a lot of the same stuff (ie. saving the world), I don't find any of the books repatative thus far. She does go on about her shoes and car a bit much, but hey, I probably go on about the things that I love a bit much as well. As I said, Joanne is obsessed with designer shoes and fast cars. You will see a lot of names dropped in this series, and this book especially. It amuses me, as a fellow shoe-lover, and makes me want to look some of the lesser known designers up. Anyway, I would say that this series is mediochre. Amusing, but not full of substance. Ms. Caine can really write and drive a plot, and her character development definitely happens without a ton of angst. I guess that it just didn't grab and hold on to me like other books have. I would rate this book as Mature, as it has some cursing, plus sex scenes and implied sex.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Once again, Caine delivers! Once again, Joanne Baldwin is in trouble. See, she's died once already (which sucked), got reincarnated in the form of a Djinn (which was cool, but, ultimately, sucked) and has since been returned to living flesh (much cooler, though now she has to pee after long car drives, and she never noticed how much that sucked before being a Djinn). Not that she's negative. Born a weather warden, Joanne can manipulate and control the air and water, and is a member of the Wardens, a group determined to do two things: keep as many humans alive in the much-more-volatile-than-you-know Earth, and stay a secret. The first isn't going so well, the second seems pretty dicey, too. So, when the most powerful fella about with powers over all the elements has his powers stolen from him by a punk boy with major psychological trauma, and said punk boy also steals the world's most powerful Djinn, things get pretty nasty, pretty fast. And Joanne is pretty sure that people are trying to kill her (again). What's a girl to do? Well, getting some kick-ass shoes, a fast car, and a dress that leaves just enough to imagination is a good start. The rest she'll come up with as she goes. A load of fun as always, the writing of Rachel Caine is right up there with Jim Butcher and the early (non-overdosed) Laurel K. Hamilton. It rocks, but I'd suggest you start with Ill Wind, which was the first book in the series. 'Nathan
