Quote of the day: “I’d have been dead a long time ago if not for my friends, one of whom had just jumped off the cliff after me.
I’d have been a lot more appreciative if he hadn’t pushed me first." Cassandra Palmer ― Hunt the Moon by Karen Chance

Ill Wind by Rachel Caine

Ill Wind (Weather Warden, #1) Ill Wind by Rachel Caine

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

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...

My Thoughts:
Ill Wind is the first installment in the Weather Warden series by Rachel Caine. I'm already a fan of her YA series(The Morganville Vampires). I recently read Undone; which is a branch off of the Weather Wardens series. And I really enjoyed that book, so I decided to get into the Weather Wardens series and was really glad I did.
Joanne Baldwin is a Weather Warden, with power over wind and water. She's beautiful and impulsive and full of surprises.
Currently, she's on the run from a murder wrap and unfortunately she's bearing a demon mark too. It Start's out with Joanne traveling to find old pal Lewis, because he may be the only one who can help her out.
The other Wardens are told to bring her in if found and she cannot chance being caught. Even before this incident her Warden supervisors considered her something of a wild card. She has power's of unusual strength and because she's undisciplined and tends to not always listen she's usually inclined to act first and think later.
On her journey to find Lewis she meets with somewhat of a hiker. Her first impulse is to ditch him as soon as possible, but she finds that ditching David is easier said than done.

All in all, I really enjoyed this book. The book had lot's of action, a good amount of twists and a bit of sexual tension. I really loved the idea of the Weather Wardens and cannot wait to read the rest of the series.
