There isn't one single boring moment in this novel. There are so many twists and turns that you don't notice that you've almost reached the end of the book. I wish it had been longer. There are so many awesome scenes and wonderful dialogue going on. The action-packed scenes are second to none. Joanne is as fun, quick-witted and cool as ever. Great characters like Lewis, Rahel and Jonathan are back, but there are some great new ones as well. I love Joanne's new friend and colleague Cherise. I absolutely love bad boy cop Armando Rodriguez. I hope he will be featured in future installments. Eamonn is an interesting, three-dimensional villain and he will no doubt wreak some more havoc in future books. All in all, this is by far the coolest Weather Warden book to date, and they've all been great fun. We are left with several cliffhangers and I look forward to reading Firestorm with utmost anticipation. Keep these great installments coming Ms. Caine!

Just when you think Rachel Caine cannot outdo her previous Weather Warden offering with action, twists and wit, she creates something so riveting you cannot put the book down even if you wanted or had to. Windfall is the fourth book in the Weather Warden series and the best one thus far. No sooner does Joanne Baldwin free herself from one conundrum than she lands in another. She quit her job as Weather Warden and now settles for a job as Weather Girl for one of the local stations. She has gone from saving humankind from the elements of Mother Nature to smiling in front of a camera wearing sun or rain costumes and getting soaked with water. But that is the least of her problems. Her sister crashes into her home after her husband dumps her, a vengeful cop won't leave her alone until she tells him what happened to his former partner Quinn (villain from Chill Factor), her sister starts to play house with Cute British Guy (the name Joanne and her friend use to describe him), and Joanne may be losing her powers, for David is becoming an Ilfrit and is feeding from her power. On top of everything else, there are rogue Wardens with demon marks chasing after Lewis and the Djinn have had enough and are killing Wardens in order to obtain their freedom. They have also separated into two groups and have begun what could well become a supernatural Civil War.
