Review: Ill Wind – Rachel Caine

Joanne Baldwin is a Weather Warden – waves her hand to tame the most violent weather. Now she races against accusations of corruption and murder. Her only hope is Lewis, the most powerful warden known. Because he stole three bottles of Djinn, he is now the most wanted criminal on earth. Can she find him before the bad weather closes in?
My thoughts:
Honestly this one fell flat for me from the first page. I tried reading it, then I started skimming and finished it cos sometimes I hate giving up. Especially with my own books.
What’s her name… ok I do remember it, Joanne is running. I did not care why she was running. Why she had a mark on her. Why there was a need for constant jumps in time. Why there were wardens. I just did not care.
Ok I am lying, David seemed hot and was intriguing. But that whole story was stupid too.
In the end it was one big fail and I would not read any more even if one fell down from the sky.

    Honestly I read this one 2,5 months ago and remember NOTHING. The whole book was just so boring and now afterwards it's all a blank. When it sucks it sucks, everything just sucks that is the deeper thing..But ok the story seems to be what I said was stupid. And my status updates just says boooored.But it was the whole on the run thing and the weather thing. And a freaky guy she picked up. And I just do not remember anything anymore. It was not memorable

    I read this one a few years ago and it didn't grab me either…I just found the main character very difficult to relate too – she wasn't human enough for me!

    I bought most of the series when a local book store was closing but I still don't have book #1. Everyone said t was great but now I'm a sad panda. I probably won't like it either lol

    Aww bummer. I love the sound of this series and I have book one and two waiting for me on my shelf. I've read the first two of Caine's YA series so I enjoy her writing. I'll have to be cautious when I open this one up. Thanks B!

    Hmm I did read the first 6 books in this series many years ago, and really enjoyed them. Very original and now insta love or other nonsense.
