For millennia, Cassiel was a powerful Djinn—until she was exiled to live among mortals. Now the threat of an apocalypse looms, and Cassiel is in danger of losing everything she has come to hold dear…
As the world begins to fall apart around her, Cassiel finds herself fighting those she once called her own: the Djinn. With Weather Warden Luis Rocha and the rescued child Ibby by her side, Cassiel struggles to find a way to protect those who are in her charge and come to terms with the leadership role she never asked for.
Cassiel is opposed by Pearl—a powerful Djinn bent on raising an army of kidnapped Warden children to bring about nothing less than the end of the world. It will take everything Cassiel has to stop the Djinn from starting a war that will wipe all of humanity from the face of the earth. She knows that this might not be a battle she can survive, but protecting those she loves is worth any cost…
This is going to be a short review, because there is little to talk about because this book had so little content. This book was a mess. This was just not a good book. The ending was rushed, the plot wasn’t where it should have been focused, and the characters were ridiculous.
This is not the ending to the Outcast Season series. This is the ending to Weather Warden. Except for the five minutes of this book actually focused on Pearl, what little of this book that focused on this particular series at hand was mostly nonsense. Seriously, so much of this book was devoted to what happens at the end of Weather Warden I was annoyed. Pearl literally took up only about 5 minutes of story, total. It was all the djinn and the Mother and even Joanne’s problems, instead.
Cassiel turned from an okay character, to not really much of a character at all. Just a camera by which to show the actual story. Cassiel doesn’t really do anything in this book except go where she is “told” and does what she is “told”. A prop, nothing more. None of the characters felt like anything at all.
Caine really phoned this book in, and it shows. I’m glad it is over. I’m never rereading it.
