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.Read more ›
Cassiel is growing more comfortable in her human skin, experiencing emotions on a level she never felt as a Djinn, and actually growing to love the humans she's surrounded by. She's not entirely sure she likes this new compassion. It makes her vulnerable in ways she never was when she was a Djinn. This includes caring for and loving humans like little Ibby and, of course, Luis. However, she never loses her practicality and willingness to do what's necessary, no matter what the consequences might be (oh, and there are some serious consequences).
Speaking of that hot Weather Warden Luis, things are moving along quite swimmingly between Cass and Luis. As in, they're finally getting together-together. Oh, thank all that is good--the sexual tension between the two of them was about to kill me! Except, despite the ongoing tension and their every-growing feelings for each other, Luis's first priority is his niece, Ibby, and protecting her from the psychotic Djinn Pearl, and Cass's priority is stopping Pearl without offing all of humanity. While that seems like that would go hand-in-hand, it doesn't. Those crazy kids. I have faith they'll work it out, especially considering they really do care for one another and, despite their differences, they just have such a fantastic connection.
Added into the mix are Djinn from Cass's past: Rashid and Ashan.Read more ›
