Editorial Reviews

Review

"You'll never watch the Weather Channel the same way again."

"Rachel Caine is as swift, sassy, and sexy as Laurell K. Hamilton."

"A neat, stylish and very witty addition to the genre, all wrapped up in a narrative voice to die for."

"Caine has cleverly combined the wisecracks, sexiness and fashion savvy of chick lit with gritty action-movie violence and the cuttingedge magic of urban fantasy."

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).

First of all, it took me about three hours to get through this book. That's short even by my standards.

The good: Continues where Firestorm left off, lots of action, and an overall well-paced read. There was little lag time, and Ms. Caine makes her characters very interesting. I actually care about them. We got some cute backstories, more info on Venna (Alice, the Djinn), and the final reunion of Joanne with the Wardens (the constant on the run from everyone including her former employers was getting a bit old). The idea was fresh, at least to me, in that chunks of the story were told from the point of view of memories; it was a creative idea. The Sarah storyline was handled in an interesting manner, I'm curious how it plays out later on. It kind of came from nowhere, but provided an intriguing twist.

The mediocre: There are times where I scratch my head and go "huh?" at some of the events in this book (and others in the series). The "evil twin" concept didn't work too well for me, it just feels cliche. The storytelling keeps this from being too much of a negative, though.

The bad: There is always a bad, and in this case it's that Ms. Caine is falling into the LK Hamilton mode of deus ex machina. How convenient that the now-deceased Imara is the new Earth Oracle. How convenient that this results in Joanne getting Earth Warden powers at just the right time. How convenient that she is now the second most powerful person in the world. And how convenient that the Djinn who like her break away from the Djinn who mostly do not. It's things like this which bug me. Does Joanne need more powers?

Reviewing "Firestorm" I said I would probably pick up the sixth book in the Weather Wardens Series if I could read to Chapter Two. I managed to do that and to some extent, "Thin Air" has restored my faith in the series.

The story opens with a woman awakening nude and freezing in a forest. A man comes to rescue her, she knows this man as Lewis, but she doesn't know her own name or whether this man is friend or the person who put her in her current predicament.

Ooooh, that's a very good start!

Unfortunately, we spend a lot of time in that forest with person after person showing up that the woman doesn't recognize between her bouts of near freezing.

Yes, our Mystery Girl is Joanna Baldwin, and to add to the confusion, she's now got Earth powers to add to Weather and Fire. Her friends have cleared up Jo's concern over her amnesia--someone stole her memories, but where did she get the new gift?

Pretty quickly, the plot thickens. Someone killed her daughter, Imara. Joanna's got a demonic doppelganger fully equipped with her memories who's convinced the Weather Wardens she is the real Joanna and setting them against her. Her sister Sarah and boyfriend, Eamon, come into the fray. Ultimately, Jo's got to stop her Evil Twin before something dire happens--whatever that something is and her only ally is the djinn, Venna, a little girl who looks like "Alice in Wonderland" and is probably closer in reliability to the Mad Hatter.

"Thin Air" is an action-packed ride. The usual Jo Baldwin cross country car chase epic moves from forest to desert to the East Coast. Of course, she's got a souped up car and some interesting companions like always.

The format is the same as the other Weather Warden novels.

Rachel Caine writes really well. Her books are a joy to pick up; it's difficult to put them down (try digging into a Ben & Jerry's Chunky Monkey and putting the spoon away...). That's the good news.

The bad news is that this series is drifting. What started as a solid trilogy has now reached it's 6th book and promises not to stop. That's fun if you're really into Chunky Monkey. If you're into a good story, at some moment you'd like to see the end and move on.

Joanne has lost her memory. In the process of finding it back, we're reacquainted with almost everyone we've met so far. Personally, I'd like to see a story move forwards (not backwards).

In short: a really enjoyable book. But the continued milking of this series is threatening its quality.
My advise: bring it to an end. Start up a new series on the Djinn.

I have to say I got a little bored with this one, but I'm willing to cut it a little slack. The previous book, Firestorm, took us right to the brink of the Apocalypse, and there really wasn't much of anywhere to go from there. She spent the first five books telling us about the old order as she was thoroughly destroying that order, and at the end of book five, that order pretty much hits rock bottom.

So, where do you go from there?

I'd guess you start building the new order, and this book gives us a taste for that. Unfortunately, it spent too much time bringing us up to speed on what happened before through various flashbacks and the likes. I'll grant you that the mechanism for the flashbacks was interesting, but it still felt a bit like one of those lame clip shows that seem to hit sit-coms around the fifth season.

There are three more books in there series, and I'll probably read them, just to find out what happens to folks, but after this one, I'm almost wishing I could just get the Cliff Notes version. It's not that it wasn't well written. The writing was fine. The voice, the action, all of that good stuff... it's all there. Rachel Caine knows what she's doing. It's just that I felt shortchanged by plot in this one.
