About the Author

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 her husband, fantasy artist R. Cat Conrad, live in Texas with their iguanas, Popeye and Darwin; a mali uromastyx named (appropriately) O’Malley; and a leopard tortoise named Shelley (for the poet, of course).

I wish the books lasted longer but other than that, I just enjoy this series!

There are two simple reasons: the plot lines here are very similar to earlier books and it needed to be the last book.

The 8th book in Caine's 'Weather Warden' series has Joanne Baldwin battling a familiar foe.

This eighth book in the Weather Warden saga (not counting Undone, which uses the same universe but is not about Joanne and David), is much better than the last one, which almost turned me off the series. In this book Joanne and and her Djinn lover David are married, but have no time to honeymoon. The demonic Bad Bob has unleashed not only a killer storm off Miami, but a world-killer storm on the aetheric. All the regular characters return in this book, and they are at their best. The action is intense and never stops--I read this in one sitting, couldn't put it down. Joanne is back to being one of the better kick-butt heroines in supernatural fiction, after a few books where she kind of lost her mojo.

If you haven't read the other books in this series yet, do so before picking up this one, or you'll be lost and missing out on lots of great backstory. Without including spoilers in this review, it seems as if this might be the last book in the series, although that's not a given. If it isn't, things will be going in a new direction, and I'll buy the next book the day that it comes out.

Originally I was going to rate this book 4 stars but I can't give it that. There are two simple reasons: the plot lines here are very similar to earlier books and it needed to be the last book. The book was a great quick read and I enjoyed myself but I'm not left feeling satisfied or wanting more books.

The major plot line with the whole demon mark/evil thing was already explored. There was enough difference here to be interesting but I still had moments of strong déjà vu. I wish there had been more focus on the new twists and less on the demon mark. The character development of Lewis and Bad Bob was great and probably made the best parts of the book. There were great ideas but they should have taken the spot light in place of the more repetitive plots.

This leads into why I think this should be the last book. When the side character development is my favorite part this is a clear indicator that I'm done with the main characters. I've learned all I want about them and want to see them have a happy ending. The fact that the end of the book teases with a glimpse of a great happy ending just made it worse. I thought that possible ending was a great way to wrap everything up. Add an epilogue and I would have thought this was an awesome series. Instead a cliff hanger is thrown in at the last minute that is absolutely not necessary or wanted.

What I want from the next book is a wrap up of the series. I wish it had been this one but I could still love the series if the next book is the last one. We can resolve that final cliff hanger but hopefully with the same ending that is hinted at in this book (trying not to give spoilers, hopefully it's clear what I mean).

Let me start at the beginning...I first started Rachel Caine's phenomenal Weather Warden series a little over a month ago -pretty much on a whim. I instantly fell in love with Joanne Baldwin -the awesome, butt-kicking heroine -and her wild Warden life. I quickly devoured all of the subsequent novels up to Cape Storm, which is supposedly the second-to-last book in the series (Weather Warden book 9 is already scheduled for an August 2010 release on Amazon).

This may be why I had some trouble with Cape Storm. If you waited a year to read this novel after Gale Force, than all of the repetition between Cape Storm and the last few Weather Warden novels (particularly Gale Force and Thin Air) would probably not be so fresh in your mind. But since I literally put down the last book and picked up this one, they seemed to blur together into a story that I've already read before (multiple times) in this series.

While the story still has plenty of fast-paced fun and action that fans have come to expect from this series -Joanne's honeymoon to her Djinn lover David has to be postponed (again, the couple can't be happy), but she can't worry about it too much because the world is ending (again). Joanne wrestles with evil/good and in control/out of control conflict (this gives me flashes of Thin Air) and the story ends on yet another cliffhanger.

Frankly, this should have been the last book in this series. It really feels like the Weather Warden universe is to getting exhausted and there are simply no more stories to tell.

Sometimes a Weather Warden just can't catch a break! Instead of enjoying a honeymoon with her new djinn husband, David, with no more worries than whether she can match his passion for her, Joanne Baldwin finds herself once more demon-marked and struggling to retain control of her sanity, while about to set sail - on a luxury cruise ship, no less - into the teeth of hurricane, in an attempt to prevent it from devastating much of Florida. Luckily, she's accompanied on this voyage by a mixed group of Wardens and djinn, including David, of course; Lewis, leader of the Wardens and the most powerful human on the planet; Kevin, the semi-psychotic teenager; and her best friend, Cherise, whose beach-bunny beauty hides an inner core of steely determination, and a good thing, too, as Joanne's going to need all the help she can get, what with obnoxious first-class passengers who've refused to be evacuated, mysterious djinn-killers on board, and the demon-possessed Bad Bob, who's looking to bring about the end of the world.

If all this seems confusing, then you obviously haven't come across Rachel Caine's Weather Wardens series before, of which Cape Storm is the eighth volume. The initial concept - that the weather, and Mother Earth, is conscious and aware at some level, and would scour humanity from the planet if it weren't for the activities of a select group of people with powers over the elements - is undoubtedly a great one, and Joanne and David's travails thus far have made interesting, if undemanding, reading.
