    Heat Stroke por Rachel Caine (Joles)
    Joles: If you read one...you have to read them all!
  5. 00
    Shadowland por Meg Cabot (Utilizador anónimo)
    Utilizador anónimo: Suze Simon, the protagonist in Shadowland, the first of the Mediator series basically reminded me of a teenage Joanne, ghost-whisperer stlye.
  6. 23
    Working for the Devil por Lilith Saintcrow (flemmily)
    flemmily: This series is darker and punk-er than the Weather Warden series, but the Demon/Human dynamic really reminds me of the Djinn/Human dynamic. So if you like that aspect of the book, you might try Dante Valentine. However, if you like Weather Wardens because of Joanne's fashion sense, you probably want to steer clear of Dante Valentine.… (mais)

This review is also featured on Behind the Pages: Ill Wind

Be prepared to be blown away by a new magic system. In the first book of the Weather Wardens series, Rachel Caine takes meteorology to an all-new level.

Little do people know, the natural disasters that tear across the world are only a fraction of the Earth’s power. The Wardens Association keeps a close eye on these disasters and uses their powers to reign them in as best they can. Joanne Baldwin is a weather warden and damn good at her job. But certain members of the organization see her wealth of power as a threat. If there is one thing the Wardens can’t stand, it’s being unable to have total control. When Joanne is accused of murdering a fellow warden, she knows the organization will rip her powers away. In a desperate attempt, she runs cross country to the only person she thinks can help. Lewis, a man able to control fire, earth, and weather, and the only warden who escaped being magically neutered by the organization.

If you’re looking for nonstop action and an original magic system, you need to read Ill Wind. Rachel Caine did an amazing job integrating weather terminology with her magic. As Joanna manipulates the very air molecules around herself, the explosive show of force she can display is stunning. But not only is Joanne powerful, she’s crafty. Readers will experience her execute precision magic on the drop of a dime. And as the story progresses, the challenges she faces ramps up the tension.

I do advise that only adults read this book. Joanne can be a provocative character and falls into some tropes that Urban Fantasy is famous for. Generally, I don’t like books that portray female characters in this way, but the world-building and intense battles are too good to pass up. And while Joanne may be a bit cliché, the male counterpart of the story is not. From the start, David’s introduction to the story is something else. And being the central male character he breaks the mold with how he behaves towards Joanne. His personality and overall disposition hooked me and makes him one of my favorite male counterparts.

Ill Wind is a great Urban Fantasy read. There is so much potential packed into one book, and so much more story to tell. Bring on the next book! ( )

This was great to listen to! Kickass female lead with a yummy male second and some serious adventure! I will for sure be picking up book two next time I need a good audio fix!

Give me a kick-ass girl with a super cool power and a talent for troubles; pair up said girl with an hot guy; throw their way some evil forces to mess them up and I'm happy. Also, an happy ending would be appreciated!

Weather warden Joanne Baldwin is infected with a Demon by Bad Bob Biringnine
  JohnLavik | Mar 29, 2020 |
This was an intense book the moment, I started it I know I wasn't going to put it down. Joanna a weather warden was tricked into possessing a demon mark from Bad Bob, she ends up killing him for it and goes on the run. She ends up meeting this stranger named David, and something seems peculiar about him. Well, this stranger ends up helping Joanne out a lot. Come to find out he was Bad Bob's Djinn. I was an awesome story lots of action I mean literally almost from cover to cover. A really steamy hot tub scene. And a very surprising ending. Can't wait until i'm able to get the rest of the series. ( )
