Thin Air by Rachel Caine

Joanne Baldwin has had better days--at least she hopes she has. After waking up naked and freezing in a forest, she's located by two rescuers she doesn't recognize at all. One supernaturally gorgeous guy might have been her lover. The other says he can control the weather...and so can she.

Not everyone looking for Joanne has her best interests at heart, and with no way to tell friend or foe, Joanne is quickly lost in a fog of deception. Her tenuous hold on life is fading with every passing moment. Now she must rebuild herself, one memory at a time, before someone else steals her life--and she disappears into thin air. Oh, and along the way, it seems that she has to save the world....-From the back cover, also found at

I chose to use the synopsis from the back cover because it made me want to tare into this book, which I did hastily. Seriously, that summary offers some serious enticement, does it not?! Well let me tell you what, Caine does not fail to follow through! If I thought Firestorm was amazing, I had no idea what Thin Air held in store. This is my absolute favorite book in the series so far. I love the interaction of Jo with the other characters without her memory. It offers a fresh perspective to the overall storyline. Watching Jo piece her life back together is an interesting process. There are many obstacles in store for Joanne as well as the reader. Caine's writing is smoother and better than ever in this 6th installment. I absolutely cannot wait to start Gale Force!

Cover Art Commentary:
I love, love the cover to this book. Thin Air primarily deals with the element of earth, which is represented by the trees in the background. What I like most about this cover, is that Joanne is dressed casually in jeans and a tank top, instead of the black leather outfits which are more often displayed on the covers. While the leather outfits are tantalizing, the more casual clothing is closer representative of what her character usually dons in the books.
