Cape Storm by Rachel Caine

Weather Warden Joanne Baldwin was supposed to be enjoying a romantic honeymoon with her new husband, the Djinn David--not running from a malevolent hurricane bent on destroying her. Joined by an army of fellow Wardens and Djinn on board a hijacked luxury liner, Joanne has lured the storm into furious pursuit. Only one problem: Even their combined magic may not be enough to stop it.

Now Joanne's being drawn into uncharted dark territory, both at sea and in a battle for her own soul...and if she doesn't change course, her fellow Wardens--and even David's Djinn--won't have any choice but to blow her

This book left me breathless. Cape Storm is action-packed from beginning to end. The one element missing in this story are the muscle cars Jo loves to drive (and almost always destroys). Instead of the usual on-the-road setting, this story takes place out to sea, leaving the wardens and djinn vulnerable to a horrific that is specifically sent to destroy them. I found the change of scenery refreshing, a new component to the overall story arc. David and Jo are more fiercely in love than ever. As the usual, the world is about to end and Jo is the key to survival. Oh, and there are some great and unexpected twists and turns along the way to keep the reader on their toes. ;) Overall, a lovely, lovely series by Rachel Caine. I look forward to the last *sighs* book in the series due to come out this year.

Cover Art Commentary:
Very dark, very fitting. This book has a overall dark backdrop with subtle light notes along the way. The troubled waters heavily speak to the many obstacles and threats posed to the characters throughout the story.
