Windfall by Rachel Caine
Weather Warden #4

 Weather Warden Joanne Baldwin's stormy personal life is taking its toll on her patience-and her powers. But when the truce between the Wardens and the mystical Djinn starts to self-destruct, Joanne finds herself forced to choose between saving her Djinn lover, saving her Warden abilities-and saving humanity.

Joanne, the poor girl, has so many different sides gunning for her. The wardens want to magically neuter her now that she is no longer under her thumb. David's condition is quickly deteriorating as well as her own powers. Johnathan wants to destroy her because he blames her for David's condition. Half the Djinn want her dead along with the rest of humanity. As if that wasn't enough, the mess with Quinn is coming back to haunt her in the form of a very determined cop as well as someone even more sinister than Quinn himself. She also is trying to deal with now being poor and a slimy, pig of a boss.

In her mind, her biggest fight is David's condition, all the other issues take a far backseat. If she doesn't find a way to fix him, he will continue to lose power until he becomes just a mindless, power sucking, killing machine. She needs her powers more than ever to protect herself now that the peace between the wardens and the djinn is crumbling. However, in order to keep David alive and himself, she must let him continue to slowly eat away at her powers, but that puts her and her unborn djinn child at an extreme risk of being completely drained to death. She has to basically choose between herself and her unborn child and the man she loves more than anything. I think the only reason she is even considering not choosing David over herself is because of that potential baby. In the past she has never hesitated to sacrifice herself for others, but how do you pick the love of your life over your own child?

Just like the previous ones in the series, this book is extremely fast paced and one thing after another is thrown at Joanne. It seems it will only be a matter of time before she won't be able to pick up the pieces anymore. It ended with yet another cliff hanger, and the next book promises to be even more of a "nail bitter" than this one. This is most definitely not a series to read out of order as one book thoroughly leads into the next. Make sure to start at the beginning, and you won't be disappointed.
