It took me a few days to read through Gale Force. I blame an abominable head cold more than the book. It was really good, too good to not read during the dizzies. I had to peck away at it…very…slowly.
Rachel Caine has created a series rich in mythos and varying at every turn. That’s one of the things that is so bloody brilliant about the Weather Warden books – that ever single one of them is very different. In Gale Force Joanne and David have made the ultimate commitment to one another – they are planning to wed one another. This enrages both the Djinns and the Wardens who fear the impact this decision may have on the world. Joanne is not without her own doubts, but she loves him, and wants him, and very much wants to wed him. The Djinns have declared war and earth is on the line. Will Joanne have the will to carry this one out?
A large part of this book follows the wedding plans, the build ups, the ensuing chaos. Suffice it to say, it’s much ado about nuptials. I did enjoy that a bit. There’s something off about this enough to make me to not blow through it. But that could be the excessive amounts of cold medications. I think I’m going to take a small break from these and resume in a bit with the rest of them.
4 out of 5 stars.
