Synopses & Reviews
A brand new series from the author of the "Weather Warden" novels, who's as “Swift, sassy, and sexy as Laurell K. Hamilton.” (Mary Jo Putney)
View our feature on Rachel Caine’s Undone. Once she was Cassiel, a Djinn of limitless power. Now, she has been reshaped in human flesh as punishment for defying her master—and living among the Weather Wardens, whose power she must tap into regularly or she will die. And as she copes with the emotions and frailties of her human condition, a malevolent entity threatens her new existence...
"This fast-paced series opener spins off from Caine's Weather Warden series (Gale Force, etc.), with plenty of excitement to draw in new readers. Cassiel, a newly exiled djinn, is perplexed and uncomfortable with mortality. The Wardens find her and place her under the care and supervision of Manny Rocha, an Earth Warden who supplies Cassiel's aetheric and worldly needs. In exchange, she helps him with his cases. Just as she gets acclimated and starts trading smoldering glances with Manny's brother, Luis, Cassiel comes under attack by unknown forces, with deadly consequences for fighting back. Cassiel's struggle with her humanity adds depth while opening doors for more character development as the series progresses, and a cliffhanger ending will keep fans eager for the next installment."

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).
