Total Eclipse

Total Eclipse by Rachel Caine
Weather Warden #9

 Weather Warden Joanne Baldwin, her husband, the djinn David, and the Earth herself have been poisoned by a substance that destroys the magic that keeps the world alive. The poison is destabilizing the entire balance of power, bestowing magic upon those who have never had it, and removing it form those who need it. It's just a matter of time before the delicate balance of nature explodes into chaos-and doom.

Now that Joanne and David sacrificed their powers to stop Bad Bob, they have to set out to find a way to get them back. Unfortunately, the black corner they created becomes a problem as it starts to kill the Djinn that are on board the ship with them. Once they finally reach shore, Joanne realizes that although their mission is a suicide one, they must take the risk. They may just be the only hope at stopping Mother Earth from wiping all trace of humanity from the earth. There are more than a few bumps along the way, but what else can you expect for a danger magnet like Joanne.

I was really glad Joanne and David got to enjoy a little time together before they set out on this crazy journey. He was a little awkward at first since being human is completely different for him, but quickly got the "hang" of it. It was really sweet and nice to see them together completely as equals, something they have never experienced before. This time together seemed to give the little break they both needed before they set out on a path that almost guarantees their destruction.

When a series ends it almost always is bittersweet for me. It is really to see the characters finally get some resolution. However, it is always sad to have to say goodbye. I think this series ended at just the right time. I don't think Joanne could have suffered and recovered from much more without it being completely unbelievable. The resolution came as a bit of a surprise, but it worked well. It wasn't happily ever after for everyone, but that does make it a more realistic outcome, even if some things really stink. Joanne and David finally find their peace and get something they never thought they could have. All in all it was a great end to an absolutely great series.

Once again I'll say that this series is truly a must read. Its a long, crazy adventure that makes you care for the characters and root for their success and ultimate survival. You will be amazed at the things Joanne survives and how she holds to her integrity and determination to save others throughout even the worst of times. Two thumbs way up!
