Cassiel was once a powerful Djinn, until she took a stand and had humanity forced upon her. Since that time she has bared witness to imminent human destruction – experienced love, pain and loss, and gained an unbreakable connection with the human warden, Luis, and his niece Isabel.

When a deranged and ruthless Djinn called Pearl set out to kidnap warden children and harness their untapped powers for her own means, Cass was on the front lines with Luis – fighting to rescue young Isabel, but also

“He’s right. If anything is to survive, we have to risk everything. Everyone. There are no safe places left.”

Finishing Unbroken by Rachel Caine has made me a little sad. The Weather Warden series can be traced back to my early Urban Fantasy days, along with The Dresden Files and the Anita Blake series. I have followed it for years. It’s hard to say goodbye to a world that has given me so much enjoyment, especially a world that was so unique. Even after all these years, seeing so many different P

3.5 stars. There was a lot that I liked about it, more than not, but there was some awkwardness too. I still really like Cass and her attitude, it's nice to have a strong urban fantasy character who's badass but not a sarcastic snarkfest for a change (not that I don't love that when done well!). Luis is a strong partner for her and I really enjoyed in this series, as in Caine's Weather Warden series, the way that she was able to maintain a strong relationship between the characters while still l ...more

God, this book was a meat grinder. I’ve already complained once on the mortality rate in this series, but this time Rachel Caine went big. As in millions of people dead! I don’t remember that it was that bad in Total Eclipse considering that it is the same battle we are talking about.

As another book in this series “Unbroken” was very good, but as a final installation it didn’t meet my expectations. Yes, the battles were epic, the decisions hard and cataclysm tragic. The problem was I’ve read To

While I greatly enjoyed this last novel in the Outcast Season by Rachel Caine, I didn't like how she linked the last novel of this series and the Weather Warden series together to create a whole. I feel like because she placed the events in both novels, no matter which one you read first (I read Total Eclipse first), the other is going to be ruined for you. As much as I enjoyed the heart-pounding action and deepening relationships I just couldn't get over knowing what was already going to happen ...more

Shelves: decent-heroine
The last book in the Outcast Season series ties in with the events that took place in Total Eclipse, which is the last book in the Weather warden series. Cassiel and Luis are trying to find a way to stop Pearl but first they must contend with the natural disasters Mother Earth is causing. On top of that the Djinn are under Mother Earth's thrall and they've been instructed to destroy cities & towns and to also kill all the wardens.
This was my least favourite book in the series, there was no s

Recommends it for: Adults
It's all come to a head, the story line, the epic battle and the end of an incredible series. "Unbroken" is the final chapter in an incredible adventure. The story begins shortly after the last book ends. Cassie, Luis, Ibby and oddly enough the half snake girl, Esmeralda have just managed to recover from the previous battle and are together.

They are plotting where to go and what to do next. One thing for sure, the world is in major trouble with earthquakes, fires and other means of destruction

Goosebumps..

This book gave me Goosebumps especially at the end. I wanted to cry and I hardly managed not to since I was actually reading the book at work!

I CAN'T EVEN BEGIN TO DESCRIBE HOW MUCH I LOVE Cassiel. She's to me, the most unique character I have ever read. She is so cold and controlled it is astonishing how I can see her as a person I aspire to be.. Maybe because I'm out of control so often I feel that way about her, but whatever the reason is, she was written magnificently and flawles

Fourth in the Outcast Season urban fantasy series revolving around Cassiel, a former Djinn made human.

My Take
It reads as though the series may be complete even though Caine does provide future threat material for some of Cassiel's actions. It may well simply mean the end of our focus on Cassiel and Luis within the Weather Wardens. It certainly sheds a wee bit more light on Ashan's true purpose. Totally unexpected.

We don't get any detail on what the shipload of wardens and Djinn were doing—other

Spoiler Alert! Unbroken is the fourth and final installment in the Outcast series by Rachel Caine. The book picks up shortly after the events of Unseen with Cassiel, Luis, Isabel and Esmeralda counting their losses from the previous battle. Isabel has changed as a result of the manipulation and exploitation she experienced at the hands of the malevolent Pearl. Cassiel and Luis can only guess at the extent of the abuse she suffered. With her new powers and a maturity beyond her six years, Isabel ...more

If there’s anyone who knows how to write an epic series, it’s Rachel Caine. From beginning to finish, the Weather Warden series and the spin-off, Outcast Season has just blown my mind with the epic world that its set in with Djinns, Wardens, magical powers and the impending apocalypse.

Unbroken marks the end of the Weather Warden universe as we know it. From beginning to end, Rachel Caine still manages to deliver surprises aft

After finishing Total Eclipse, I decided it was time for me to revisit Outcast Season and actually finish it up. Unbroken is the last book in this series, and there is some overlap with the last book or two of Weather Wardens.

I really liked seeing some of those events from Cassiel's perspective, especially as she's a former Dijinn. It was also nice to see some of the characters through Cassiel's eyes.

There is a lot going on in Unbroken, and it was so hard to put down that I finished it in day! I

UNBROKEN (Outcast Season #4) by Rachel Caine

UNBROKEN (released in February 2012) is the 4th book and final instalment in Rachel Caine’s Outcast Season. A spinoff of Caine’s Weather Warden series, the Outcast Season follows fallen Djinn Cassiel and her lover Luis as they endeavor to prevent the end of the world-literally.

Once again, Pearl the sadistic and power hungry Djinn has taken control of the young Wardens. With their power enhanced by Pearl’s manipulation, the children are now capable of d

Mon avis en français

My English review

I think it’s always quite sad to get into the last book of a series we enjoy a lot. We always hope the novel will have a real end to the story. With all the answers of course and without disappointing us. I confess I haven’t read yet the Weather Warden series that is in the same world. But I’m now very curious to read it to learn more about this whole universe.

This volume concretizes everything we wanted. Well, the war is finally here and hell breaks loose. C

Unbroken is the fourth and final book in the Outcast Season series and in the Weather Warden time line runs alongside the last book Total Eclipse. Rachel Caine's Weather Warden and Outcast books are some of my favourite urban fantasy stories and they are ones I would highly recommend but you should really read the books in order, starting with the Weather Warden series and then following with these books. You could read the Outcast series without having read the other one first but you'd be miss ...more

Unbroken is an explosive conclusion to a must-read urban fantasy series!

Cassiel was a True Djinn, cast down to live as a human after refusing an order from their leader, Ashan. She has been living as a Warden, and must be linked to one to remain alive. At first she held disdain for humans and the New Djinns that came from them. But being linked to her Warden partner Luis Rocha, she has learned human emotions and come to love Luis and his niece Ibby. The Mother (Earth) and her arch nemes

Pluses:
I'm a pretty big fan of Rachel Caine's Weather Warden series [though I'm still missing a few books] and I came to love her Outcast Season series as well. It takes place in the same universe and general timeline as the Weather Warden series so there's a lot of crossover.

Since I haven't read the last two Weather Warden books, I feel like I've probably missed a few things that would have clarified some of the goings on in this book. Despite my lack of being caught up in the Weather Warden se

From what I read in a couple of reviews, Unbroken ties up the events of Total Eclipse as well. I don't read Weather Warden series, so I don't know what's going on there, but several characters (that I assume) are from that series appear here as well, like Joanne, David, and a couple of other Djinns. This series, though, has always been more about Cassiel and her journey to learn about humanity (as she becomes human for defying Ashan's order) and her fight against the evil Pearl.

Conclusion of second (sidequel) series in the Weather Warden universe. I was just snarky about these books, so I'd better back up and say why I read them. Answer one: I started the series and I usually finish what I start. This is a lie. I've dropped plenty of urban-fantasy serieses after one or two books.

Better answer: these books are really good at kicking the protagonists' heinies. The characters are human -- magically gifted, but human. (Ignore book 2 in the first series, that's temporary.)

Cassiel, Luis and Isabella are back, and the struggle for Earth's survival—for humanity's very continuation—is still on going. As the planet is literally pulled apart, destroyed piece by piece, and the Wardens are trying to fight off the Djinn's attacks, another enemy starts to take advantage of the upheaval. Cassiel knows that even if they survive the attacks from the Mother, they won't

And so here we are at the end of the world. Sadly, I could not care less at this point and just want this to be over. To me, this book felt like 300 pages of these characters running around, arms flailing and wailing at the top of their lungs, and terrified. Those moments are great but when it’s less a moment and more the entire darn book – the reader is left needing a Valium and a nice quiet lie-down.

Pearl, while a great villain, has been SO well developed and made SO devious and powerful, it a

As it turns out, without her power, Cassiel can't do a thing to protect the ones she loves. Pearl is too powerful, the end of the world has begun, and the sentient soul of Earth has awakened--and it has decided to wipe out humanity. Entire cities are being wiped out, and the Wardens are desperate for help, even if this help comes from Pearl and the children she has twisted to her own ends. Cassiel finds herself fighting against the immortal creatures she once called her brothers and sisters, mak ...more

If you haven't read any of the other Outcast novels-----> DO NOT READ ANY FURTHER.
I don't think I have ever loved Caine's work more than I do now. I've read all of her novels, but the Outcast Season series is my favorite thus far. This is the best conclusion we could have asked for-if we had thought to ask for it. The series is about a former Djinn who was forced into human form by her leader so she would follow his orders to kill all of humanity- reason being that a super evil being (a forme

OMG! I was not aware til I finished the book, that Rachel Caine is ending The Outcast series with Unbroken! But what an ending!! It went right alongside her Weather Warden series, so we get to see Joanne and David again! Yay!

While that was fun and knowing what the fate of the world would be, there was still a lot left unknown! Cass still has to deal with Pearl. And do her best for Isabel, who was traumatized by Pearl. Yet Isabel, is the smallest of the problems. It seems the Wardens need her and

Last book of an interesting Weather Warden Series offshoot. After a lot of exciting twist and turns Cassiel and Luis finally defeat Pearl.

Halfway through the book the story merges with Joanne and David’s after they arrive from the cruise ship. It’s both interesting and confusing as I tried to remember the events previously. But then Cassiel and Luis and even Ibby head off again to the own story line.

There were several ‘No!’ moments and scenes where I surprised how it worked out. But the ending,
