Total Eclipse: By Rachel Caine



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.


Over seven years ago Rachel Caine began her now famous Weather Warden series. It captivated millions with its exciting cliffhanger endings and non-stop action. Now nine books (and one spin off series) later, we’ve reached the end of the line for the infamous Joanne Baldwin. Total Eclipse marks the end in Caine’s sensational Weather Warden series, and like all her books, goes off in a big bang.

Total Eclipse is the culmination of the entire series, and as such would make no sense to someone who just happens to pick up the book. But to those loyal fans who’ve kept with the series over the years, the reward is amazing. Total Eclipse begins where Cape Storm left off, leaving the djinn dying and the wardens themselves not doing so hot either. Joanne Baldwin and her husband David have been poisoned, and the earth has begun to wake up, cause mass destruction. All in all not such a great place to be.

Total Eclipse answers all the questions readers have been dying to know, and does a great job of wrapping up the series. The road is not paved in gold, nor is it an easy ride, but fans will be happy with Caine’s ending to the series.

All in all what more can you ask from a series. Caine has done a fantastic job entertaining and enthralling readers for seven years with this superb series. The end is not hokey, and it is not depressing as all get out. Because of this, the nonstop action, and the likable characters, Caine has put to rest a sensational series.
