Accused of murder, Weather Warden Joanne Baldwin was chased across the country—and killed—by a team charged with hunting down rogue Wardens.
Five days later, Joanne had a lovely funeral and was posthumously cleared of all charges. Her human life was over, but she had been reborn in Djinnhood. Now, until she masters her enhanced powers, Joanne must try to avoid being "claimed" by a human. But when a hazard that only a Djinn could sense infiltrates Earth's atmosphere, Joanne must somehow convince someone to do something about it—or the forecast will be deadly. So who said being all-powerful was going to be easy?

First Thought when Finished: Totally would have been a 5 except for that dratted cliffhanger and the fact that I don’t have book 3 (totally not the author’s fault on that one LOL)
Story Thoughts: OMG y’all! The Weather Wardens have totally rocked my world and I am INVESTED in how all of this is going to work out. In Heat Stroke things got twistier and can I say it THINGS HAPPEN (stealing that from Kelly). I wasn’t a fan of the cliffhanger at the end but then again it is only because I don’t have book 3 yet. Looking forward to getting to it soon.
Character Thoughts: The characters rock this world! They are what makes the weather warden series shine. I am so invested in their lives and twist my hands when they are in life threatening situations. I love being that invested but it causes me stress 🙂

I am becoming a bigger fan of Dina Pearlman. I really have enjoyed her narration of this series! I need to go look up some of her other work.
Final Thoughts: I need book 3—darn my book budget!
