Cape Storm by Rachel Caine
Weather Warden #8

Weather Warden Joanne Baldwin and her new husband, the Djinn David, are running from a malevolent hurricane bent on destroying her. Joined by an army of fellow Wardens and Djinn onboard a hijacked luxury liner, Joanne has lured the storm into furious pursuit. But even their combined magic may not be enough to stop it-nor the power-mad ex-Weather Warden controlling it...

Now that Joanne has been claimed by a demon mark, she really cannot be trusted. Still, she sticks to her main character trait of always having to save the world, and sets out with the rest of the wardens to go and try to stop Bad Bob. I can honestly say I never expected the man behind the sentinels would be Bad Bob. It is kind-of ironic that the man who really started Joanne's crusade to save the world would be the one to show up in the end, and mark her with yet another demon. It will take everything she has, plus a little insurance to ensure Joanne doesn't become the conduit of destruction Bad Bob wants her to be.

It seems no matter what Joanne and David do, some outside force keeps trying to rip them apart. I had hoped their wedding would somehow give them five minutes of peace and happiness. This was a pretty foolish hope considering she planned the wedding to draw her enemies out, but it still would have been nice. Even through this book, they don't really get to spend much time at all in marital bliss, but they do seem to make good "use" of the time they do get. Sometimes the heat dies down in characters over times, but that is definitely not the case here.

I was pretty disturbed over seeing Joanne's dark side. I understand it really wasn't her, but the demon mark controlling her. It just was really hard to read when she was doing such horrible things. But, being the fighter she is, it never truly consumed her, there was always some part of her still in there. When she does get control back, the guilt consumes her even though she had no choice.

While there were a few moments of levity, this book was jammed packed with action, danger, and despair. It had more than a few shocking moments, with the ending being the worst of them all. Its going to take a lot for Joanne and David to dig themselves out of this mess, if they can at all. Be prepared for one heck of a fast paced read that looks to be gearing up for one heck of a finale.
