Weather Warden #09: Total Eclipseby Rachel Caine
Synopses & Reviews
In New York Times bestselling author Rachel Caines latest Revivalist novel, Bryn Daviss problems quickly turn from dead to worse
Already addicted to the pharmaceutical drug that keeps her body from decomposing, Bryn has to stop a secretive group of rich and powerful investors from eliminating the existing Returné addicts altogether. To ensure their plan to launch a new, military-grade strain of nanotech, the investors undead assassin—who just happens to be the ex-wife of Bryns lover Patrick—is on the hunt for anyone that stands in their way.
And while Bryns allies arent about to go down without a fight, the secret shes been keeping threatens to put those closest to her in even more danger. Poised to become a monster that her own side—and her own lover—will have to trap and kill, Bryn needs to find the cure to have any hope of preserving the lives of her friends, and her own dwindling humanity
"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.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)

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.
About the Author
Rachel Caine is the author of more than twenty novels, including the "Weather Warden" series. She was born at White Sands Missile Range, which people who know her say explains a lot. She has been an accountant, a professional musician, and an insurance investigator, and still carries on a secret identity in the corporate world. She and her husband, fantasy artist R. Cat Conrad, live in Texas with their iguanas, Popeye and Darwin; a mali uromastyx named (appropriately) O’Malley; and a leopard tortoise named Shelley (for the poet, of course).
