Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Caine's third Outcast Season novel (after Unknown) finds the djinn Cassiel well adapted to the mortal body she's been exiled to. The same cannot be said for Ibby, the six-year-old girl whose awesome paranormal powers literally start the book off with a bang. Newly turned over to a school where the benevolent Wardens teach gifted children to harness their supernatural endowments, Ibby, whose talents were boosted prematurely by evil Djinn Pearl, is going through life-threatening physical withdrawal from the Djinn. Hoping to save Ibby, Cassiel takes to the road to infiltrate and neutralize Pearl's organization—a gambit fraught with danger for her human form. Periodic dustups with FBI agents, passionate moments with Warden love interest Luis Rocha, and a surprising twist of events at Ibby's school combine with Cassiel's insightful reflections on mortality and human nature to keep this fascinating fantasy saga moving briskly forward to its apocalypse-promising next installment. (Feb.)

It is a very well written book.
Dorrie Byno
Cassiel also has to make some hard decisions here, even when it hurts the ones she cares about the most.

That said, this is the third book in a series spun off from another series.

I was a little unsure how Unseen would be since the main series it's spun off from, The Weather Warder Series, which ended this last August. But I shouldn't have worried because when you have a writer as creative and talented as Rachel Caine you don't need to worry about the continuity of a series.

Unseen takes place right after the end of Unknown and around Cape Storm in the Weather Warden Series. It's fast paced, exciting, and full of rich characters. Because the series takes place over four books Caine is better able to show the evolution of her protagonist Cassiel, from a hard uncaring dangerous Djinn, to a more compassionate fuller character that we're able to see in Unseen.

Not only that, but the other characters such as Ibby and Luis are given in my opinion a much bigger (and much deserved) role in this book in the series. I found Ibby in particular especially well written and interesting. Caine does a great job treading that fine line of a broken little girl and a hardened soldier that the Ibby is forced to inhabit in her character. Not only that but the other new characters such as Esmeralda make a great new addition to the story and really help bring out the action.

That said, this is the third book in a series spun off from another series. Readers should make sure to read the previous books to truly grasp all that is happening in the book.

All in all this is a fun book with plenty of action. The characters are interesting and redeemable, and the dialog is well written. This book wont win the Hugo or Pulitzer Prize, but it makes for a great book to read on vacation or just for anyone looking for an exciting and captivating book on the go. All in all a very entertaining book.

I just finished this book and *sigh* I am even more in love with this series than ever. I'm really glad that Rachel Caine decided to do a spinoff of her Weather Warden series. I enjoyed that series a lot, but this series has quickly surpassed it and become my favorite.

I know a few people who had a problem with Joanne's personality and the constant rotation of big bads in such a short timeframe in the Weather Warden series. If you're one of them, you might want to take another crack at it with this series because it's written very differently. There's one big bad that spans the series instead of a different problem in each book. They just have specific things to accomplish in one book to get them closer to defeating the bad guy.

Also, I wasn't as big of a fan of Jo and David as I think I was supposed to be. I seemed to like the other characters I met along the way better. This one I actually like for the characters and the relationship development (plus the action too). It all feels very solid and even though there's a big bad and the battle to beat her is important, Cassiel's growth and change through the series is a huge part too.

The action and intensity really ratchets up in this installment. We've had some pretty gnarly actions scenes to date, but now the stakes seem higher so it it's all a bit more intense. I don't think anything can compete for the sheer badass WTF-ery of a certain scene in the second book, Unknown, where Cassiel proves that she's still Djinn where it counts, but this one certainly doesn't disappoint.

Cassiel continues to be a fascinating, complex character. She questions her old beliefs as a Djinn and weighs them against her new experiences as a human.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Cassiel and Luis recently saved his niece Isabel from her murderous djinn sister Pearl (see Unknown). However, both are concerned with what they learned during the rescue. First Isabel is too young to display her otherworldly power yet she has. Second there were a horde of other abducted kids with her.

Pearl and her followers have kidnapped the offspring of deceased Wardens. They brainwash their prisoners before raising the powers of the children. Cassiel and Luis fear what will happen to the kids as obtaining power before puberty leads to a significant chance of dying. Wanting to prevent Pearl's plans from fruition, Cassiel infiltrates one of her compounds hoping to uncover her sister's diabolical scheme. However what she learns frightens her with what her evil sibling has set in motion.

The latest Outcast Season (see Unknown and Undone) thriller is an entreating Warden fantasy. The story line focuses on the collateral damage caused by the misuse of power, but loses the opportunity to profoundly dig into why and how the sisters mentally and emotionally traversed different roads (nature vs. nurture). Still the story line is fast-paced and filled with action as readers anticipate round three between Cassiel and Pearl.

This is definitely a book I will be re-reading.

This series is the best I've read from Rachel Caine so far. The main character, Cassiel, is delightfully intriguing. To see her character grow from djinn to human has been fascinating. All of the characters have been well written and become more real with each page and book into the series. I found the elemental paranormal aspect to this story very interesting and complex with it's universal connections. I'm curious in how the author is going to end the series since the next one is the last. I can't wait to read it and find out!

I would recommend this series to any fantasy, paranormal urban fantasy, or science fiction fan. It has it all including romance, action, and mystery.

*Although I won a free copy of this book through a Goodreads first reads giveaway, my review is not altered. This is my honest opinion.
