    Originally read 1 29 11 1 30 11 4.5 Stars I just finished this book and sigh I am even in love with this series than ever I m really glad that Rachel Caine decided to do a spinoff of her Weather Warden series I enjoyed that series a lot, but this series has quickly surpassed it and become my favorite.I know a few people who had a problem with Joanne s personality and the constant rotation of big bads in such a short timeframe in the Weather Warden series If you re one of them, you might want to take another crack at it with this series because it s written very differently There s one big bad that spans the series instead of a different problem in each book They just have specific things to accomplish in one book to get them closer to defeating the bad guy.Also, I wasn t as big of a fan of Jo and David as I think I was supposed to be I seemed to like the other characters I met along the way better This one I actually like for the characters and the relationship development plus the action too It all feels very solid and even though there s a big bad and the battle to beat her is important, Cassiel s growth and change through the series is a huge part too.The action and intensity really ratchets up in this installment We ve had some pretty gnarly actions scenes to date, but now the stakes seem higher so it it s all a bit intense I don t think anything can compete for the sheer badass WTF ery of a certain scene in the second book, Unknown, where Cassiel proves that she s still Djinn where it counts, but this one certainly doesn t disappoint.Cassiel continues to be a fascinating, complex character She questions her old beliefs as a Djinn and weighs them against her new experiences as a human Even when she changes, she never feels different than her core self Cassiel is someone who will never be weak where it counts Her practicality and willingness to make the hard choice do not endear her to everyone She knows herself and her worth and doesn t care if people think she s arrogant because of it I can manage Do you have any idea of your own arrogance, lady Yes, I said Do you have any idea of yours Her connection to various people is tested here The bonds that she has built are put to the test and not all of them survive There was one character who crossed a shocking line for me and I m curious to see how that will continue to play out in the next book and if it can be fixed Cassiel also has to make some hard decisions here, even when it hurts the ones she cares about the most I was breaking his heart, and mine, and there was nothing I could do that would heal that wound It was better to let it bleed out the poisonif that was possible.I wasn t sure that it wouldn t kill us both.I feel bad that Cassiel has to shoulder the blame because she s strong enough to take a harsh look at the situation and do what needs to be done, even when she doesn t want to I can see why other characters are hurt by her decisions and it seems like no one wins in situations like that.We got to see of Rashid who continues to fascinate me and also a bit of Ashan Things are quickly getting out of control, and something toward the end happened that upped the ante dramatically Something must be done, and it must be done now or it will be too late The next and last book in the series that comes out in 2012 promises to be a wild, intense ride I can t wait.I know that I haven t gone into much detail about the actual events of the story, but I think it ll lose its punch if I give anything away A large part of the fun of Rachel Caine s writing is uncovering the wild ride page by page The only caution I would make about this book is that it does not stand alone well You really need to start it from the beginning to follow along well.Favorite Quote Everything s fine, I said I bought Isabel a pet There was an interestingly long silence, and finally he said, Is it poisonous Not that I m aware of That ssurprising, somehow, from you All right You can explain it all to me later Review originally posted on Fiction Vixen.

    This review appears on my Happy Indulgence Blog Check it out for reviews I ve never read a series that depicts Djinn ie genies as well as the Weather Warden series and Outcast Season does No, they re not blue genies that come out of a bottle but they have super wicked powers and a whole world of their own.While the Weather Warden series was from a warden s perspective who actually happened to be a Djinn early on, although briefly , The Outcast Season is perfect from us seeing things from a Djinn turned human s perspective.Cassiel has definitely warmed up to becoming a human as she s gotten comfortable in her own skin and protecting people that she cares about, Earth Warden Luis and his damaged niece Isabel Unlike the Weather Warden series which transitioned between several major enemies, the Outcast Season is about one big baddy Pearl, an evil Djinn and her sister who wants to wipe the Earth clean of all life, and to start over again with her as the ruler.What s dark and disturbing about Pearl, is that she s capturing gifted children and forcing them to break and use their Warden powers early, which pretty much assigns them to an early death With her newly found compassion and Djinn resolve for vengeance despite all odds, Cassiel is the perfect person to take down Pearl s operation before its too late.As always, I really admired Rachel Caine s flawless writing The entire weather warden series and Outcast Season spin off features some mind blowing concepts, such as New Djinn, Old Djinn, and Earth Warden powers I ve never been lost once, which is a real testament to the way she can paint these concepts so vividly in your head While I was reading Unseen, it occurred to me that I felt the depth of pain and betrayal that Cassiel feels, simply because of her unique circumstances of being a Djinn.It felt like I really understood the choices she had to make, such as going for vengeance instead of staying with her loved ones That s just what a Djinn no, Cassiel does, she can t sit tight while there are children in the world suffering It s evident that she s grown immensely since we first met her in Undone, as it may have been difficult connecting with her then, but now, I can only see things from her practical, detached perspective.The series really ramps up here with beloved characters thrown into desperation and reaching breaking point, seeing the bleak results of what happened to poor Isabel underpin the true evil of what Pearl does, and the true power of Earth Wardens With a classic cliffhanger ending, I can t wait to see what happens in the final installment of The Outcast Season and sadly, all things Weather Warden.

    Outcast Season is a spin off series of Caine s Weather Warden books The number of readers is so far limited and I hope that changes as I want Caine to write adult urban fantasy, not young adult, as I have tired of her Morganville books Outcast is an entertaining series and fans of the Warden books will be happy The Warden books are notorious for terrible cliffhanger endings I am happy that Caine has toned that quality down here The main plot is still very much unresolved but I feel no stress having to wait another year for the next to be published As an urban fantasy story, this series is darker than the Warden books I did not like this at first As I ve mentioned before, the humor is missing but now that I ve finished the 3rd book, I feel invested enough with the characters that I can do without the humor Caine made a smart decision, as a book that is essentially about experimenting, abusing, and exploiting children is not fertile ground for many humorous moments.I am still not completely sold on Luis He was a big male baby Rashid is by far my favorite character And there is a monster I really loved And a rolling sphere which was awesome I was internally complaining about the timelines of the Warden series and these books not matching up but it did come together in the end The next book should be very interesting considering what happens with the djinn Luis and Cas are a good balance I like how their instincts differ so greatly, with Luis wanting to protect and Cas wanting to attack Joanne s history of being tricked and screwed over by unlikely sources is a quality shared by Cas Those scenes get under my skin but it all comes together and makes for some memorable action Additionally, for a book with numerous young characters, I was not the slightest bit annoyed by any of them I tend to want to run away screaming from books with kids, as most authors are terrible at characterization and writing believable scenarios and actions Caine did an excellent job of avoiding the pitfalls which other authors fall into I hope Caine does not take forever to publish the next in the series 4 1 2 stars, the best so far.

    I didn t enjoy the first two all that much but I suppose I had it coming by trying the third despite that Mainly my issue was with an unsympathetic character I couldn t begin to care about This one started out better as she became sympathetic but then the action just became too unbelievable Amazingly though I was still interested enough in the plight of the children to read through to the end And still ended up not satisfied with the result.

    I have to admit, I go all fangirl when a new Rachel Caine arrives in my mailbox and Unseen is no exception Set in the same world as the Weather Warden novels another rockin series, if you re into urban fantasy , Unseen is the third in the series featuring the ex Djinn, Cassiel, and her human Warden, Luis Since this is the third in the series, there are some spoilers if you haven t read the prior novels Cassiel is growing comfortable in her human skin, experiencing emotions on a level she never felt as a Djinn, and actually growing to love the humans she s surrounded by She s not entirely sure she likes this new compassion It makes her vulnerable in ways she never was when she was a Djinn This includes caring for and loving humans like little Ibby and, of course, Luis However, she never loses her practicality and willingness to do what s necessary, no matter what the consequences might be oh, and there are some serious consequences.Speaking of that hot Weather Warden Luis, things are moving along quite swimmingly between Cass and Luis As in, they re finally getting a piece of each other ooh, and what a nice shower scene that was Oh, thank all that is good the sexual tension between the two of them was about to kill me Except, despite the ongoing tension and their every growing feelings for each other, Luis s first priority is his niece, Ibby, and protecting her from the psychotic Djinn Pearl, and Cass s priority is stopping Pearl without offing all of humanity While that seems like that would go hand in hand, it doesn t Those crazy kids I have faith they ll work it out, especially considering they really do care for one another and, despite their differences, they just have such a fantastic connection.Added into the mix are Djinn from Cass s past Rashid and Ashan Rashid has always fascinated me, popping in unexpectedly, interfering in Cass s now human life, and lending aid when least expected but most needed Then disappearing And then there s Ashan If you ve read any of the Weather Warden series, you re familiar with Ashan and his distain for human kind He s perfectly comfortable ordering Cassiel to wipe out the human race in order to stop Pearl and then turning Cass into a human as punishment when she refuses So, when he pops up back on her radar, she s somewhat unsure how to deal with him, especially with all those new to her human emotions roiling around in her brain I have the feeling we ll be seeing of him in the very near future.Rachel Caine seems to take inordinate pleasure in torturing her characters She takes the writers maxim of making characters lives miserable to a higher level I m awed and a little scared every time I pick up a book to find out what torture is in store for the characters Cassiel gets dumped on hard core Characters die right and left Just a little warning don t get attached to anyone new Most of them don t make it very long in the Outcast world Ibby grows up way too fast and is forced to make decisions no one under seven should ever have to make Unseen is a super fast, tension filled story that will have you reading late into the night.Rating 4.75 5.0This review was originally posted on Book Binge by Mary.

    This story actually takes place at the same time as the events of Cape Storm and Total Eclipse from the Weather Wardens series featuring Joanne Baldwin.I guess I am one of those who has to be different in my opinion about this story Cassiel IS an interesting character, but those around her like Isabel Ibby and Luis make this series worth continuining to read In part, she reminds me a little of Joanne in that her decisions aren t always that fun to read about Cassiel was once a powerful Djinn, a being as old as the earth herself Thanks to Ashan, the leader of the so called True Djinn, she lost all her powers and must rely on the charity of the Wardens themselves for her survival Her powers are Earth Wardens, like her partner Luis Rocha Rocha now appears to have an affinity for not only Earth, but Fire as well same as his niece Ibby Cassiel and Luis get to know each other horizontally in this book, while Ibby is sleeping Of course, this doesn t last long as Warden Marian Bearheart, from the Warden Series, demands that Luis bring Ibby to a school in Montana where they are trying to help those stolen by Pearl, the evil former Djinn who was once killed, or so it was thought, by Cassiel herself Bearheart was hurt so badly in the war between the Djinn and Wardens, that she ll never walk again.Cassiel makes a decision after arrival that, in my opinion, she should have done before now go after Pearl and the children she s mind raped Save them, kill her Seriously, you can say that s what she did to these children because they have absolutely no control over themselves and their powers are extraordinary powerful They ve become nothing than a pawn for Pearl against the Wardens, and Humans overall Ibby s powers are so powerful that she could eventually die prematurely.I like Ibby s character, especially at the end when she and another Pearl abused child named Gillain take a stand, and decide that it s time to take Pearl out I also love the addition of Esmeralda the snake girl who Ibby called and asked for help from Another shocker Ashan was actually likable in this story, even though he clearly has an agenda which is the elimination of humankind from the planet in order to stop Pearl, and to save Mother Earth from destruction Ashan has true feelings for Cassiel, and even goes as far as saving her after Pearl and her children beat her to a bloody pulp Ashan even fore tells his destruction in this book, and asks Cass to come back to him If you haven t read the last few books in the Warden Series, I suggest you do so What s interesting is, there are actually several real villians in this story One, you don t see coming until the end She hides in plain sight as it were, turning the children against those like Marian and Cass The second group is a cult like group calling itself the Church of the New World They are blind followers to Pearl, and kidnappers of Warden children Of course, there s Pearl who really needs to be stopped soon Maybe in the last book of the series Overall, I shall give this book a 3.5 rating and only because the last 100 pages were actually enjoyable to read, and that s were all the action was as well.

    This is the third book in Rachel Caine s spin off from the Weather Warden series and I would definitely recommend it to Weather Warden fans I loved the first series but I m growing to like the Outcast Season books even , the only disappointment is having to wait a whole year to get my hands on the next and final book in the series I would say you could pick up the Outcast Season books even if you ve not read any of the Weather Warden series but I would definitely recommend reading this series in order starting with Undone.Cassiel is still struggling to fit into her new place in the world no longer fully Djinn but also not quite human she finds her lack of power and the fact that she has to rely on the Wardens to live frustrating Working in such close contact with her Warden partner Luis has had a big effect on her though and we are starting to see a much human side to her, she is caring and wants to do everything she can to help those suffering at the hands of her enemy She hasn t had a personality transplant though, she can still be very cool and logical when she needs to be, she will do what needs to be done no matter how much it hurts her to do it What I really love about Cassiel is that we are seeing a lot of development in her character, she never comes across as one dimensional and although you might not agree with her decisions sometimes you can understand why she makes the choices she does.I have been really enjoying the developing relationship between Cassiel and Luis but I have to admit I was disappointed with some of Luis behavior in this installment I can t really say why without giving spoilers but there were times I wanted to shake him I will say that he had started to redeem himself by the end of the book so I have high hopes that I ll be back to liking him again in the next installment It broke my heart watching Ibby at the beginning but I was so proud of her by end of the book that I wanted to cheer I m also very intrigued the snake girl and wonder if we ll see of her in the future.I can t wait to get my hands on Unbroken which will be the final installment in this series Considering the books so far have coincided with the last few Weather Warden books I m curious to see where we will be in the timeline for the last book, if it runs alongside Total Eclipse there should be some very interesting times ahead for Cassiel and the Djinn I would recommend this series to any urban fantasy fan, personally I d say you re better off starting with the Weather Warden series and reading all of the books in order but if you re not sure you should definitely give Undone a try.

    Sometimes an author can do their work all too well when creating a villain for protagonists to overcome As in the Jane True series where I felt I would never be truly satisfied until Jarl was dead , my dislike for the rogue djinn Pearl has now reached fever pitch Her cult like followers, cultivated through a combination of magical manipulation and murder, are heartbreaking enough on their own Add an army of children being trained as holy warriors and cannon fodder, and I m out for blood Outcast Season book 2, UNKNOWN, revealed a lot of Pearl s evil without much by way of victory for Cassiel and her allies, circumstances that drove me up the wall with frustration to get my hands on the next in book in the series UNSEEN did not disappoint It s a fast, exciting story that moved the plot forward in several satisfying ways Normally I dislike books where the love interests are separated for much of the story, but Cassiel and Luis seem to grow deeper in their relationship through the trials they face In this book than any other, Cassiel faces how much she has changed since being cast out of the djinn, and her personal growth amidst all of the action and danger was both well written and believable.UNSEEN includes even revelations regarding Pearl, and sets the stage for a very satisfying resolution to the series in book four, UNBROKEN The reality of Pearl s fanatics and child soldiers is chilling, to the point where Pearl is definitely in the top five of my list of Villains Who Should Die I ve got my fingers crossed and high hopes for UNBROKEN, here s hoping Pearl gets what s coming to her.Sexual Content Mildly explicit sex scenes.

    I don t know how Rachel Caine does it, but I would love for her to teach me her tricks I have read a lot of her books and she is still able to surprise me with the feelings and the twists and turns that she fills her books with While the Weather Warden series was non stop action and What could possibly happen next , the Outcast Season series is a little stable in that the big bad is the same one throughout all four books Although we know the enemy, it still doesn t make life easy on Cassiel or on the reader This installment in the series was even creepier than the last The children that Pearl is capturing and then damaging, nearly beyond repair, are freaking scary And the cult that Pearl has doing her dirty work are scary in their own right They all believe that they are doing the right thing and that Pearl will save them all She has done such a masterful job brainwashing people that even the strongest minds have nearly fallen victim to her Aside from the action and creepiness, this book was full of emotion Rachel Caine is freaking phenomenal in creating such amazing characters that you can t help but feel so deeply for Cassiel, who up until she was turned human, didn t bother with emotions, is filled with them in this book and most of the time she doesn t know what they are or what to do with them I can relate to that I love this series and the Weather Warden series that it was spun off from I cannot wait to see what happens next, although I m hesitant to finish the next book because it is officially the last and I ll have to say goodbye.

    This is a 3.5 star, not just a 3 star.Ms Caine does not write happy books Every book I ve read of hers puts me into a tailspin of depression I m starting to wonder if Ms Caine is Chinese hiding in a white woman s body I say this because every Chinese story or movie I ve watched contains violence and betrayal against the hero or heroine In Unseen, Ms Caine continues this lovely tradition when Cassie s friends, family, allies and enemies attack her physically and psychologically The blows just keep coming The ending of the book is in Ms Caine s trademark cliffhanger of gloom and doom Just one time, I d like to read a book of hers where someone I like DOES NOT DIE But then, the book wouldn t be a Ms Caine special.In Unseen, we see of Cassie s human side She struggles still with being human and I can t blame her I m human and I still struggle trying to understand people s responses Her feeling of being all alone and trying to do the right thing hit painfully close to home.I have to give Ms Caine props for finding new ways of stabbing the reader in the heart with a dagger i don t know how many different ways she can cut a person and still leave them breathing and waiting for the next book I guess this means I m waiting for the next one.
