About Book

View our feature on Rachel Caine's Total Eclipse.

New York Times bestselling author of the Morganville Vampires novels

Weather Warden Joanne Baldwin, her husband, the djinn David, and the Earth herself have been poisoned by a substance that destroys the magic that keeps the world alive. The poison is destabilizing the entire balance of power, bestowing magic upon those who have never had it, and removing it form those who need it. It's just a matter of time before the delicate balance of nature explodes into chaos-and doom.


From Barnes & Noble

The good news is that Weather Warden Joanne Baldwin has saved the world. The bad news: It doesn't really matter. A substance is poisoning the earth, destroying the very magic that keeps the planet alive. Joanne and David have already lost their powers and the destabilization runs even deeper, shattering the delicate balance that we all take for granted. With signs of chaos everywhere, our harried weather warden must search for new remedies to an unprecedented world crisis. A mass-market original with teeth.

Publishers Weekly

The thrilling, steamy ninth installment in Caine's Weather Warden series (after Cape Storm) finds weather warden Joanne Baldwin and Djinn leader David struggling to cope with losing their magical abilities. David is especially hard-hit, since without magic he's merely human, but their quest to recover their powers must wait until they can get the world's weather back under control. Joanne is dispatched to approach the mysterious Oracles and resolve the situation. What follows is a race through the Apocalypse, delivered with sly, sarcastic humor. Particularly fascinating is the changing relationship between Joanne and her half-Djinn daughter, the Oracle Imara; parents will recognize the shifting emotions as some once-essential elements are lost while the core affection remains. Solid pacing, romantic tension that leaps off the page, and the battle to save the world make this ideal summer reading for the paranormal romance fan. (Aug.)
