This was a neat start to the spinoff series! I thought Ms. Caine did a great job with Cassiel's thoughts and emotions as the character made the difficult transition from Djinn to Human. Loved that we got a glimpse of David and Jo, too.

The story moved quickly, easily keeping my attention. I was surprised at how fast I grew attached to Manny and his family. I didn't expect the tears! OMGosh...heart-wrenching moments! Luis is a bit mysterious, but I'm sure we will learn more about him as the series progresses. I do like the way Cassiel and Luis are working together to help the missing children. Their unique need for the other is interesting to watch. They are up against a powerful force. I suspect it will take some creative thinking to survive. Yes, there was a cliffhanger ending, but it wasn't bad. We know the story will pick up in the next book, which I plan to read right away.

On a side note, there is exciting news on the Weather Warden Front! Rachel Caine plans to release Red Hot Rain: A Weather Warden Novel sometime in 2016! If you loved Jo and David as much as I did, be sure to check out the details on Rachel's website! ( )

I had it from the library but it came in with a lot of other books. It ended up going back unread. I'll keep it on my to be read list and read it later in the summer.

Standard urban fantasy. Cassiel amused me as a character, but Luis was poorly developed and I kind of resented the cliffhanger at the end. ( )

First Thought When Finished: I read this one before I read any of the Weather Warden series. I was hooked from the very beginning!

Story Thoughts: WOW! Just WOW! I am going to say it: this is the book that caused me to go back and read the Weather Wardens. I loved the world. I loved the characters. I loved the action. I loved the mystery. It was just a fantastic combination of all the elements that make me love Urban Fantasy. NO FREAKING LOVE TRIANGLE. Like I said, all the things that make me fall head over heels for a series.

Character Thoughts: Cassiel is one kick ass chic! She is smart, uber strong, and horrible with people but good with kids. I love this last trait because it means she is a little bit more straight-forward than people normally like. She is also thrown on her ass and she manages to stand up, shake it off, and go forward. She has some serious gumption. I am not going to say much about the rest of the characters because I don't want to spoil the plot. Let me just say: GRAB THE FREAKING HANKIES. You will need them.

Audio Thoughts:

Narrated By Cynthia Holloway / Length: 9 hrs and 53 mins

I have listened to quite a few Cynthia Holloway narrations and this one did not disappoint. Cynthia is great with female voices and their ranges. She shows great emotion, pacing, and gives a little extra to make to the audio stand out.

Final Thoughts: I need to read book 2! That.Is.All. ( )

A djinn who won't follow orders is cast down to take human form - interesting premise, and a solid series kick-off. Cassiel isn't always sympathetic, but she's likeable. ( )

To Jean Stuntz, my dear and patient friend, who sat with me in a humid bar in Oklahoma City and helped me figure out what made Outcast Season a halfway good idea.
You, my dear, rock.
