Overall Rating: 4/5
“Joanne Baldwin is a Weather Warden. Usually, all it takes is a wave of her hand to tame the most violent weather. But now, she’s 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 known. Unfortunately, he’s stolen not one but three bottles of Djinn-making him the most wanted man on earth. Still, she’s racing hard to find him-before the bad weather closes in fast…”
I enjoyed this book mostly because I love Rachel Caine’s writing style, I don’t know what it is but I always love anything written by her. This was a good book, not as good as Morganville, but good. As it’s the first book I didn’t really get to know any of the characters well but I quite liked Jo and David. Lewis, to say he’s the main part of the book, is hardly in it so I don’t know how I feel about him just yet. Some parts of Ill Wind confused me slightly but by the end I got it. I am really looking forward to book two. I wouldn’t reccomend this to younger readers but its a good read. I would give it 4/5 stars.
