Chill Factor by Rachel Caine


Weather Warden extraordinaire Joanne Baldwin, who protects the human race from monster storms, was killed, reborn as a Djinn, and then restored to her original form. She's been through a lot - and stuck her neck out many times - to save innocent lives. Now she is rolling the dice to stop an infinitely powerful, deeply disturbed kid from destroying the world ...

A teenager has holed up in style at a Las Vegas hotel with the most powerful Djinn in the world, planning who knows what kind of mischief. The Wardens' senior leadership is dead, Djinn are disappearing, and a secret society wants to help Joanne destroy the teenager, even if doing so kills her again. But everybody in Vegas has a game going, and Joanne has to learn the rules fast because the stakes have never been higher - and all hell is about to break loose ...

Book three in the Weather Warden series takes off where book two ended, David and Jo are chasing Kevin and Jonathan while trying to avoid getting killed by them. This book gives is a little Jo background story and also (surprisingly) makes you see Marion Bearheart in a different light. Jo learns some things she doesn't want to believe but has to cope with it.

I love Rachel Caine's writing, I'm a huge fan of her Morganville books as well as Weather Warden. Unfortunately I came into the Weather Warden series sorta late so I have some catching up to do but it's fast becoming one of favourite series. And I highly recommend it to all Rachel Caine fans and any urban fantasy fans wanting a wee change from vamps and weres (not that there's anything wrong with them but a little deviation never hurts).

Great read with at least gasp-out-loud moment that had me hurting!
