Publisher's Summary

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.

This is a great series!

This was a really fun "read". The characters are great, the story has an ending. (I hate it when a author writes a partial book, it always feels like rip off).

I knew when I was only half way through the book, that I wanted to follow this series. The narrator is great. Dina Pearlman is a real talent.

I would recommend the "Weather Warden" to anyone that enjoys books like "One foot in the Grave" by Jeaniene Frost, and or "City of Ghosts" by Stacia Kane.

Good fun and fast listening

This was one of the books I bought through audible sale. And as recommended it was a very entertaining read. I really don't need "hot steamy" sex in my urban fantasy books, which seems to be almost mandatory these days. Even though this book does have sexy scenes, it's not overwhelming nor excessive which was a big plus for me. Also the story was straight forward, easy to understand and the main character likable.

Unlike the other urban fantasy novels I read, Joanne is not an ass kicking "the best" weather warden ever. She needs help and gets it from a very attractive djinn named David. One thing I can say is that their romance is bit too hastely made. I mean I can see the attraction, appreciation, guilt and all that emotion jumbled together, but from that chaotic feeling to "true love" in several days? That was too convenient and quick.

The ending was something I didn't expect and I would like to read more in this series. I found it is actually a series with a nice ending (book 9) so now I have to go hunt more.

I recommend this series for anyone who likes a fun easy urban fantasy with a bit of romance!
