Book Summary:
For millennia, Cassiel was a powerful Djinn- until she was exiled to live among mortals. Now the threat of an apocalypse looms, and Cassiel is in danger of losing everything she has come to hold dear...

As the world begins to fall apart around her, Cassiel finds herself fighting those she once called her own-the Djinn. With Weather Warden Luis Rocha and the rescued child Ibby by her side, Cassiel struggles to find a way to protect those that are in her charge and come to terms with the leadership role she never asked for.

Cassiel is opposed by a powerful Djinn bent on raising an army of kidnapped Warden children to bring about nothing less than the end of the world. It will take everything Cassiel has to stop the Djinn from starting a war that will wipe all of humanity from the face of the earth. She knows that this might not be a battle she can survive, but protecting those she loves is worth any cost...

My Thoughts:
Unbroken by Rachel Caine is wicked, dangerous and packed full of action. I absolutely love this series- Unbroken is book four. Any of these novels could be read as a stand alone, though I wouldn't recommend it because each one is wonderfully entertaining. Caine's writing is just riveting- she knows how to vividly tell a story.

Cassiel is kick ass and powerful. Her character is intriguing, watching her grow over the series is fascinating. I have to admit that I usually do love a good book surrounding around the lives of djinn- so that may have something to do with it. Cassiel isn't the only character I adore though, Luis and Ibby are great too. All the characters in Unbroken are three dimensional, I felt like I could connect with each one of them.

Now, for the sad part. The only complaint I have about Unbroken is that it is the last book in this series. (Sigh) Rachel Caine fans aren't going to be disappointed, she hits another home-run with Unbroken. If you love the Weather Warden series, you HAVE to read the Outcast books. I recommend this series to ANY Urban Fantasy fan. It has everything - Action, romance, adventure. Go pick it up!

Books in this series in the order that they should be read:
1. Undone
2. Uknown
3. Unseen
4. Unbroken
