Read in June, 2009

Caine's novels are mind candy. The plot moves faster than the main character normally drives, and that's saying something, given that she likes to drive classic sports cars at speeds in excess of 100 mph. The character development, although there is some, is slow. Although the titles are based on weather, weather isn't the point. The plot development focuses much more on the corruption of power and of institutions created by persons. The character focus is not between the Weather Wardens and the weather but between the Weather Wardens and the Djinn, whom they have enslaved. The author's tendency to end each novel on a cliffhanger is irritating, and I developed the habit of making sure I had the next sequel checked out of the library before I started a book.

I read these books to distract me from a project of major proportions. But they definitely fall in my category of read-once, not read-again, and they don't have much (if any) redeeming social value.
