Ill Wind

...Before that I read ILL WIND by Rachel Caine. I liked it, up to a point, but I find it a bit annoying when I read a book where the heroine doesn't seem to have enough questions, and the author doesn't provide enough answers. I got the feeling the world wasn't quite well enough defined. And, despite the fact that the Amazon.com information (on the second book that had spoilers for the first) wasn't quite accurate, I still didn't like the ending of ILL WIND. So I'm not quite sure I'm going to read the next book. However, it was good while it lasted.--Lori


I've been able to read a bit, and read the second and third books in Rachel Caine's Weather Warden series. I liked the second one, HEAT STROKE, better than the third, CHILL FACTOR, mainly because I tend to skim over the heavy action bits, being more interested in character/relationship stuff, and the two main characters were not together for much of the third book.--JW

I agree with you about the ending of 'Ill Windí. I loved the book, but wasnít sure about the ending. It was great in that the ending fit in with the rest of the mythos. It was a nice creative way to get out of the fact that the author had stated that Joanne has a limited time to live before the Demon Mark takes her over and canít die with it in her, but I was never totally satisfied with the becoming a jhinn part, because it always felt to easy to me. (I donít like it when the heroine basically wishes for something and then gets it.)

Truthfully, when I just knew that there was going to be a sequel, I thought it was going to be about Lewis, and was a tiny bit disappointed when it was all about Joanne again.
