good but some of the earlier ones were better. It's becoming a bit formulaic. ( )

This review is also featured on Behind the Pages: Cape Storm

Joanne, David, and their combined team of Wardens and Djinn face off against their greatest foe. But who said facing the end of the world has to be done without style? Aboard a luxury cruise ship, they race against a hurricane arrowing straight for Joanne. But it isn’t just the hurricane they have to worry about. Joanne’s not herself lately. Contaminated by the very power they fight against, she’s losing the battle against it. And when Joanne snaps, she’ll take everyone down with her.

Rachel Caine doesn’t hesitate to up the stakes with each Weather Warden book. Cape Storm is no exception as innocents are thrown directly into the line of fire. Time is ticking and the wardens don’t have the option of waiting for all passengers to leave the ship before setting sail. Not to mention the threat Joanne herself presents to the team. Every one of her actions could be laced with deceit and she wouldn’t even know.

Relationships are strained as trust gradually disintegrates. Harsh realities will rise to the surface, forcing characters into corners they cannot escape from. Rachel Caine made a wise decision by adding in passengers without powers. With all the tension thrown into the mix, they were a great way to defuse situations. It also gave Cherise time to shine as she wooed them into coercion and fangirled over some of their more famous passengers. Cherise is such a fun character and is just the personality to balance out the team.

And despite the series nearing an end, there is still a healthy dose of world-building thrown into the story. New revelations about the use of powers and ways to block them arise. And new enemies and lore crop up, throwing twists into carefully laid plans. There is never a dull moment in Cape Storm. Readers will be enthralled from page one and demand answers from the final novel Total Eclipse. ( )

Cape Storm was OK. Joanne has to deal with a Demon mark and helping the Wardens and Djinn fight Bad Bob. Throughout most the story, she's struggling to maintain her morality and it's a constant fight. Things don't go quite as planned and there was one scene of extreme emotional intensity. Things wrapped up in the usual Caine manner. My fascination with Joanne and company has come to an end, unfortunately. I'll probably read the next in the series, but honestly, I wish the author would wrap it up already. ( )

Whew! This one took my breath away! It's definitely a favorite of mine within the Weather Warden series! Now I understand the build up in the last two books. It was worth the wait and the cliffhanger endings!

In this installment, a deadly storm is heading for the coast of Florida. It's unlike any the wardens have encountered, controlled by an evil force. To deal with the problem, the wardens and djinn board a cruise ship and head out to sea, knowing that the storm will chase them. Can't tell you how without spoiling it for you. Just read the book. You won't be sorry. All of our favorite characters are on board (literally) and each one is facing his or her own personal challenge in connection to the coming battle. Lewis is forced to make some heartbreaking decisions and is struggling with the "right" and "wrong" ways of fighting the storm. It was neat to see him struggle with his humanity. He's always been the strongest warden out there, and with so much on the line, we get to see a bit of his ruthless side.

Jo is up there with Mercy Thompson and Kate Daniels on my list of favorite heroines. She's strong and resilient and willing to give her life for the innocent. This is her biggest challenge yet as the evil force controlling the storm has a physical hold on her. David is by her side through the majority of the book, juggling his own set of problems. He's busy leading the djinn and fighting to contain the darkness that has invaded Jo. If he can't stop Jo's demon mark from taking over, it will swallow her moral compass completely. This leads to a conflict with Lewis that was jaw dropping! This was just an overall exciting and fun book to read!

The ending surprised me and it's a fantastic segue into the final book of the series, which I suspect will be amazing! I don't know what I'll do without more Jo and David books in my future! Ack! ( )

Joann just wants to have her honeymoon with David, but has to fight the demon mark that Bad Bob put on her. I think that Joann dies twice here and comes out human at the end. Of course she and David won't stay that way for long, but we'll have to wait for the next book to find out for sure. Better than the last one! ( )

I’ve had many oh crap moments in my life. If you know me at all, you can imagine how many of them there have been, and the rising scale of crapitude that these moments cover.
