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).

The hurricane heading towards Southern Florida may make Katrina look like a sun shower; Chief Weather Warden Lewis Orwell knows what that storm did to New Orleans and the rest of the delta so he fears something even worse for Miami. He hijacks the cruise ship Grand Paradise and assigns his weather wardens and their djinn to sail the vessel into the open water with his goal being that the storm will chase after his unit rather than the populace on the Floridian Peninsular. Newlyweds Weather Warden Joanne Baldwin and Djinn David are on board the Grand Paradise, but obviously this is a working honeymoon. However, this super sized storm is actually the work of magic by insane former weather warden Bad Bob; his formidable power is enhanced exponentially by his amoral lunacy. The honeymooners and their comrades in weather battle the hurricane of any century while Joanne and David also struggle with the poisoning of the demon mark that infects her. CAPE STORM is an exhilarating weather warden thriller. The story line is fast-paced and filled with plenty of magical action as the lead couple is victims trying to stay one step ahead of the perfect storm, while also trying to contain the poison devastating Joanne. Rachel Caine provides another terrific tale in one of the stronger urban fantasies on the market today. Harriet Klausner

Let me start at the beginning...I first started Rachel Caine's phenomenal Weather Warden series a little over a month ago -pretty much on a whim. I instantly fell in love with Joanne Baldwin -the awesome, butt-kicking heroine -and her wild Warden life. I quickly devoured all of the subsequent novels up to Cape Storm, which is supposedly the second-to-last book in the series (Weather Warden book 9 is already scheduled for an August 2010 release on Amazon).This may be why I had some trouble with Cape Storm. If you waited a year to read this novel after Gale Force, than all of the repetition between Cape Storm and the last few Weather Warden novels (particularly Gale Force and Thin Air) would probably not be so fresh in your mind. But since I literally put down the last book and picked up this one, they seemed to blur together into a story that I've already read before (multiple times) in this series.While the story still has plenty of fast-paced fun and action that fans have come to expect from this series -Joanne's honeymoon to her Djinn lover David has to be postponed (again, the couple can't be happy), but she can't worry about it too much because the world is ending (again). Joanne wrestles with evil/good and in control/out of control conflict (this gives me flashes of Thin Air) and the story ends on yet another cliffhanger.Frankly, this should have been the last book in this series. It really feels like the Weather Warden universe is to getting exhausted and there are simply no more stories to tell.

It's hard to believe this book isn't the end of the series, although rumour has it that there are more books to come.I found it hard to like this book whilst I was reading it. There's nothing wrong with it really, but possessed Jo was just too awkward to get on with, although kudos to the author for trying.Hard to review further without massive spoilers so I'll stop here.

Now sort of kind of married, Weather Warden Joanne Baldwin and the love of her life, chief Djinn David, are facing a whole new world of evil. Bad Bob, true to the nickname that had once been a badge of admiration from his fellow Weather Wardens, has activated the demon mark tattooed on Jo's back and set the end of the world in motion. So not only does Jo have to fight the weather, Bad Bob, and the army of renegade Weather Wardens and captive djinn he's put together, she has to fight the evil vying for her soul. Another capable installment in this popular series, the action in Cape Storm is almost nonstop and there are some true moments of doubt about the outcome. And, as has become her trademark, Caine ends with a teetering cliffhanger.

One Little Lie: My Story By Echo Chapter One- Chasing Daylight "Echo, we're going swimming. Want to come?" My silver tabby sister, River That Glitters Blue, asks. Her round blue eyes are excited. "Sure." I mew, flicking my white-tipped tail. "Who's 'we'?" "Me, Glow, Dusk, Raindrop, Pearl, a bunch of others. No boys, though!" "Oh, okay. Sounds fun!" "Great. Meet us at the Sky River at sun-high." I nod and pad over to my friend, Falcon That Swoops At Ground. "Hi." "Hey." He replies. His dark brown tabby fur seems gold in the sunlight. "You want to learn how to catch eagles? I'll show you, if you want." "Um... maybe later. Or tommorow." I shuffle my paws. "I can't tommorow. Thorn and Fire are coming with me to hunt. All day." He frowns, gold eyes narrow. I look away. "Okay. Soon, then." I promise, and look around. I spot my best friend, Wing Of Soaring Bird, and psad over to her. The fluffy, soft, light gray shecat looks up, her sapphire blue eyes round. "Hi, Echo!" "Hi, Wing. Want to come swimming with me and some others?" I ask. "Sure!" She looks excited. "Awesome! Meet by the Sky River at sun-high. We'll all be there!" "Okay! Want to share a rabbit?" I nod and begin grooming my jet-black pelt. Wing goes to get a rabbit from the fresh-kill pile, leaving me alone. I look out of the cave at the sky. Sun-high, sun-high, when will it be sun-high? ((Okay, that's Chapter One! So what do you think? It's going to be boring at first, but please power through! Tell me what you think, please!))
