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. ( )

The concept of an ancient being, composes of energy and immortal, being trapped in a human shell is interesting. Rachel Caine does not carry this as far (or as well) as THE HUNDRED THOUSAND KINGDOMS, but she certainly casts Cassiel as alien enough to be a compelling and unique main character. My only complaint is how quickly she becomes selfless and willing to sacrifice herself for humans, and how the cliff-hanger ending leaves littler or no resolution to Book One. The second issue is easily enough addressed, on to Book Two! ( )

Epigraph
Dedication
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.
First words
It only took one word to destroy me, after millennia of living in peace and security, and the word was No.
