Book #: Book 5 in the Weather Warden series
Rogue Weather Warden Joanne Baldwin is racing to New York to warn her former colleagues of the impending apocalypse. An ancient agreement between the Djinn and the Wardens has been broken, and the furious Djinn, slaves to the Wardens for millennia, have broken free of mortal control.
With more than half the Wardens unaccounted for in the wake of the Djinn uprising, Joanne realizes that the natural disasters they’ve combated for so long were merely symptoms of restless Mother Nature fidgeting in her sleep. Now she’s waking up—and she is angry….
Jo and David’s daughter Imara was born at the end of book 4, and in this book she pops in and out of Jo’s life as Jo rushes across the USA trying to locate the three oracles, in hopes of trying to get them to get a message to Mother Earth to go back to sleep and stop taking over the Djinn- because for some reason, the earth can control the Djinn and make them do her bidding. It’s a weird but kinda fun story, lots of travelling around the country and trying to locate the oracles.
I think my favourite of the oracles was the Air one, because that was just nuts. The fire oracle and earth oracle seemed like normal people by comparison. I also enjoyed reading about the relationship between Jo and Imara, because she really didn’t know how to go about suddenly having a fully-grown daughter.
And of course, my favourite part of the book was the ending- because it was like WHAT?!?!?!?!? Wait, hold up, WHAT?!?!?! Oh. My. God. Next book is gonna be hella good….I think I lasted about three minutes before starting the next book because I had to find out what the hell happened to Jo.
