Book Review: Ill Wind by Rachel Caine

Ill Wind

I loved this book.  Rachel Caine must have had a fun time researching this one.  All the meteorological terms & how to tell what the clouds, air & temperatures are doing. The changes, how to interpret them & what causes storms.  I found this an amazing feat!

Because of all of these terms, it was a little confusing at first but worked out well in the end.  This book was different because the actual story behind Joanne's running wasn't fully explained until the middle of the book. It did keep me turning the pages & wanting to read more to find out what had happened, so loved that aspect.

It was fully action packed, had love & love scenes as well, but it was intriguing & mysterious.  The culprit behind the lightning strikes & weather changes was not whom I expected (which is always good in a book, if you ask me).  I did like this & the ending was also something I didn't expect either.

Of course this is a happy ending book, just in a different way.  I hope I have intrigued you & that you'll read this book.  I give it a 4star rating, it was overall an awesome read.

Some Weather Wardens control fire, others control earth, water, or wind - and the most powerful can control more than one element. Without Wardens, Mother Nature would wipe humanity off the face of the earth...
Joanne Baldwin is a Weather Warden. Usually, all it takes is a wave of her hand to tame the most violent weather. But now Joanne is trying to outrun another kind of storm: accusations of corruption and murder. So she's resorting to the very human tactic of running for her life.
Her only hope is Lewis, the most powerful Warden. Unfortunately, he's also on the run having stolen not one but three bottles of Djinn - making him the most wanted man on earth. Still, Joanne and her classic Mustang are racing hard to find him - because there's some bad weather closing in fast...
