Gale Force by Rachel Caine

While on vacation, David asks Joanne to marry him. While Joanne is thrilled to say yes, she must consider the various parties that are strongly objected to union and will do anything to stop it from happening. Meanwhile, there is a dark force at work which is posing a large threat to the wardens, djinn, as well as mother earth. One that the djinn are unable to see and the wardens, unable to stop. Oh, and the press has caught wind of said supernatural phenomena and are hot on Joanne's trail, trying to capture her every move. Just what a girl needs when she is trying to save the world from imminent doom, right?!

I just finished this book and I can barely catch my breath. Again, can I just say what I a fan of Rachel Caine I am?! She packs it all in, in this 7th installment of the Weather Warden series. What I love most about her writing is the sarcasm and dark humor. It balances out the heaviness and darker moments of the story. I cannot tell you how many times I found myself laughing aloud, even when the characters are facing certain death. It takes an incredible writer to do that. I also love how fierce and independent she makes her heroine. You cannot help but love Jo, even if you don't agree with her every decision and action. With every book, I get closer to the end of the series. While I am enjoying the ride, I am sad to see it end.

Cover Art Commentary:
This is my favorite cover of the entire series. No joke. I knew it the moment I bought the entire series. I love the colors. I love the cherry red mustang and the leaves that are fluttering beside Joanne. The indeterminable sky in the background has a lot to say about this book.
