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 PNR and UF worlds, this on
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 Total Eclipse be

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

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.

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

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 m

22 points/100 (1.25 stars/5).

It is the end of the world, and Cassiel and Luis want to make it not do that.

This is going to be a short review, because there is little to talk about because this book had so little content. This book was a mess. This was just not a good book. The ending was rushed, the plot wasn't where it should have been focused, and the characters were ridiculous.

This is not the ending to the Outcast Season series. This is the ending to Weather Warden. Ex/>It

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.

The battle to end all battles...literally. It's finally time to fight Pearl head on. I wanted to love it, and in parts I did, but overall, it was kinda meh for me. Yeah, emotions run high, people panic or shut down from stress, but it seemed like everyone was shutting down or just being assholes. Nobody could get it together and do what needed to be done, at least not without petty bickering and threats first half the time. The ending was mostly nice, but the 20 pages of "I have to do this NOW o ...more

Cass and Luis try to warn the Wardens of Pearl's danger, but the warnings fall on deaf ears. The Mother has sent her djinn to attack humanity, and they can't afford to reject help, despite the risk. Cass is coming to worry she may not be able to escape the future she's been warned of, that she may have to destroy humanity to destroy Pearl after all.

I always will be a die hard Marvel fan and this series really accomplished that fulfill in novel form! Look forward to another's series. And for comic book critics nothing sent my generation and the next running to a dictionary faster!!

Wow, it was really sad finishing this series. I was really into it. I'm going to start reading all the other series the author has written. I recommend this is you like strong female characters and badass-ery!

Great conclusion to this series (or at least I think so LOL). Been quite a few years since I'd read #3, so it took me a bit longer to get back into it but it definitely wrapped up with a bang and I blew through the end of it today which is always a good thing to me.

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

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

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 child

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 univers

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

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

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) an

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.
