Total Eclipse is the last book in author Rachel Caine's pulse-pounding Weather Warden series. Though I'm sad to see Joanne Baldwin's story end, it came to a thrilling conclusion in Total Eclipse that's perfectly satisfying for Warden fans and paranormal romance fans.

Having settled down (or, trying to) with husband and Djinn David, Joanne thinks (well, hopes) that life as a Weather Warden is over. But when David is poisoned by a substance that slow seeps the life out of him. Joanne must embrace her Warden powers and find a cure. Not only is David, at risk, however, but the Earth itself becomes poisoned by the same substance and it's up to Joanne to race against time and save the world...again.

Though the plot feels a little recycled from previous books and from other sources, Caine manages to create non-stop, edge-of-your-seat action on every page. Sure, it does get a tiny bit deus ex machina, but it just plain works. Caine pulls out all the stops from this wonderfully satisfying finale.

Though Joanne has retired, the Weather Warden universe lives on in Caine's new Outcast series about a fallen Djinn named Cassiel (who, by the way, makes a cameo in Total Eclipse). While I hasn't too excited about the first book in the series, Undone, the series lets fans continue to experience the exciting Weather Warden universe and give a glimpse into the continuing life of everyone's favorite Weather Warden Joanne Baldwin.
