Review - Undone by Rachel Caine

Outcast Season, Book 1
Rachel Caine
February 3, 2009
ISBN# 978-0-451-46261-9

Book Blurb:
Once she was Cassiel, a Djinn of limitless power. Now, she has been reshaped in human flesh as punishment for defying her master—and living among the Weather Wardens, whose power she must tap into regularly or she will die. And as she copes with the emotions and frailties of her human condition, a malevolent entity threatens her new existence...

My thoughts:
Refusing to do the task that her master has ordered, Cassiel has been cast out from the Djinn. Forced into a fragile body, with little knowledge of surviving as a human, she’s forced to rely on the Weather Wardens for help. They provide Cassiel with what she needs to stay alive, including the energy she’d die without.

Cassiel has been partnered with Manny, a warden who’s willing to work with her. Following a surprise visit from his warden brother, Luis, they’re all on alert. Something or someone is focused on destroying them, and only as a team can any of them hope to survive.

This is the first installment in the Outcast Season series, a new storyline that shares many of its wonderful characters with the Weather Warden series. Ms. Caine takes readers on a fabulous new journey and introduces us to a powerful new heroine who’s been forced into a reality she’s not equipped to handle. Undone well exceeded my expectations, and I’m really looking forward to seeing where the series will go from here.

Great review! I just got book 1 in the Weather Wardens series from the bookstore the other day. I have to catch up on all her books. I've only read the one Morganville book so far but they were fun quick reads. I love the cover for this book. Do you think it's better to have read the Weather books before reading this one?

Thanks Rachael! I've loved all of the Weather Warden books, so I would recommend reading them of course. You'll understand better what the Weather Wardens and the Djinns are, so that their relationship (the good and the bad) will make more sense. :)

Hopefully I will get this in the post this week. For some reason all the new releases are not getting to Europe as quickly!
