After preventing Mother Earth from destroying the planet, Joanne Baldwin lost her memories thanks to Ashan the djinn-and they will remain lost forever unless Joanne can recover her identity-and destroy the demon who is impersonating her, fabulous shoes and all...
We’ve reached the halfway mark for the Weather Warden series and as far as I’m concerned, Thin Air is the best in the series so far. Since the epic world-domination build up from books 1-4, Thin Air throws all of this out the window and gets us back to basics.
Joanne Baldwin, our favourite weather warden with a wicked sense of humour, wakes up naked and shivering in a forest with no recollection of who she is. She is approached by Lewis, her colleague who tells her they have impending danger ahead. Slowly throughout the course of the book, she learns who she is by absorbing other people’s memories with the help of a Djinn and her own mysterious abilities.
There’s one thing evident about Rachel Caine ever since Ill Wind, and that is her skill in delivering flashbacks to supplement the current story. Thin Air is all about flash backs, but it’s from other people’s perspectives. Ever wanted to see what swimwear model Cherise thinks of Jo and Sarah, her money-grabbing sister? What the cold hard life of a twisted killer is like? Thin Air delivers all of these and more, and it really adds to the character development in the story.
While Joanne is trying to figure out who she is, we know exactly what has happened and the whole memory loss thing didn’t affect the brisk plot moving forward after the whole Djinn aftermath. We pick up where the previous book has left off, not knowing what’s happened to Ashan and Imara. There’s this awesome ‘Evil Twin’ plot thread happening too, an evil Demon who is trying to take over Joanne’s life.
I devoured the whole book in just 3 days, and things are really looking interesting in the weather warden universe. If you haven’t started it yet, you’re missing out on a really unique and exciting series!
