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.

"A fun read. You'll never watch the Weather Channel the same way again." (Jim Butcher, best-selling author of The Dresden Files)
I really enjoyed the characters and storyline in this book and I have to confess I was a bit surprised when it came out who Joanne's protagonist was. The reader did make it fun to listen to also.
I love clean books of all sorts. Love mysteries, fantasies epic to kids stories, fairy tales, romances, humor, and historical fiction
I bought this on sale and on a whim. I wish I hadn't. Out of the 424 books I own on Audible this will be the first that I don't finish. Probably shouldn't have finished a couple of others, but I liked the characters and the story enough to wade through the smut and finish. Luckily, out of all those books only a small handful have been bad enough not to finish. Usually I try to do my homework.
I do NOT like books that have tons of swearing, especially f words, and too graphic sexual encounters. I stopped when it said she was about to describe how she'd lost her virginity. I found that I just didn't care enough to go on and I didn't want to know how she'd lost her virginity. Talk about OFF topic!
I LOVE fantasy. I LOVE weather. I've read other stories about weather mages and have LOVED them. I love adventures and drama and all kinds of books, just hate the romance genre.
I'm not sure what this book was supposed to be but it is somewhere between a romance novel and fantasy. I LOVE pure fantasy authors. This one just wasn't for me. I so wish books were rated. This one would be R or worse. What I read was definitely R.
The narrator was good. I just can't recommend the author or the story.
I know most of the reviews on this book are good and I really, really tried to like it but I just couldn't. I'm writing this review before I ask for my credit back. First, the story begins but you feel as if you are in the middle of the book instead of beginning. I found my self checking several times to make sure I had book one. I felt confused and like i was missing something. The character keeps referring to something that has happened but that you know nothing about, it was distracting and annoying. Because of this insane way of starting the book you have endless flashbacks to tell you the story which made me want to pull of my ears and throw them. Tell me what happened let me be a part of it so I can go through the story knowing what you are talking about instead of getting a little at a time through yet another flashback. I hate it movies, series and especially books. Due to this annoying way of telling a story i just couldn't continue or care what happened next. The narrator. She did an awesome job I really enjoyed listening to her and will look for her name in the future she made the story more believable. But even with her excellent reading/acting skills couldn't make me want to stay and continue to be frustrated by a book that is supposed to be relaxing and enjoyable. This being said I actually like this author and have enjoyed some of her other books so she can do better this was just maybe an experiment gone wrong. So listing to this book is at your own risk really you may love it you may hate it but if you hate flash backs like me save the credit.
It took to long to get stared. Way to many questions and description . I will not read another.
I recently finished reading all the books for this series for the 2nd time. I decided to review them all together because I think of them as one long book, not to be read out of order. I've never finished a series of books, turned right around and started them over again, but that's how much I loved this story and the characters. I loved Joann and David as a couple, I love their steadfast love story, David is the man most women wished they had. They have a difficult time, go thru a roller coaster from hell, each book cranking up the OMG factor as far as inhumanly possible. But, Rachel Caine out does herself with this complicated story with so many well drawn, fantastic characters and a freaking crazy plot that is totally unique. There is a lot of humor added in to give my heart a rest from time to time, but damn....what a story!
“I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library.” ― Jorge Luis Borges
The book was just okay in my opinion. It shows promisse to be an interesting series.
Listener of Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Intrigue (not romance), Historical Fiction and very eclectic in her literary wanderings.
It's a good solid story in the modern world mixes with folklore stuff. I like the concept of Weather Wardens. I would like to hear more about other kinds of Wardens. The plot keeps pace and there's plenty of frolicking in between.
Narrator did well- voices solid, moved with pace of the action
I felt the ending was a bit of a let down. Huge build up and then...bam I almost missed it.
I am married with a teenage son and run my own business. As I am visually impaired, audio books are my life.
Thoroughly enjoyed this one. It was a random pick for me. It's one of those books you can't put down.
I'm about 1/2 way thru this book and it feels like 10 years...
I enjoyed Ms. Caines Morganville Vampire series, and was looking forward to more of her writing.
This book didn't deliver. For a woman in peril story, the pacing and narration is very slow.
Do we really care if the heroine looks like Prince threw up on her?
