Synopsis: For millennia, Cassiel was a powerful Djinn - until she was exiled to live among mortals. Reluctant at first, she has grown affectionate toward her new human compatriots. But for one Warden in particular, she feels something much more powerful.
After Warden Luis Rocha and Cassiel rescue an adept child from a maniacal Djinn, they soon realize two things: The girl is already manifesting an incredible amount of power and her kidnapping was not an isolated incident.
All over the world, young Wardens are showing their potential far too early. And this Djinn - aided by her devoted followers - is snatching the children seemingly at will and indoctrinating them so she can use their strength for herself.
With no other options, Cassiel infiltrates the Djinn's organization. Deprived of the ethereal gifts allowed her by the Wardens, she soon begins to question her own ideas of right, wrong, and true power. But if Cassiel cannot stop the Djinn's apocalyptic designs, all of humanity may be destroyed - including Luis.
Review: I loved the Weather Warden series and the Outcast Season books, which are set in the same world, are also exceptional! Cassiel has some tough choices to make and unfortunately, she's feels like the only one who can do what it takes to stop a child-stealing monster. Even when it breaks her heart to leave Luis and Ibby - but losing them entirely along with every other human on the planet is unconscionable to her. I like the evolution that we've seen in Cassiel from Undone through Unseen. She started out Djinn-cold and has grown into a more caring...human. I very highly recommend this book and this series!! Ms. Caine has created a flawed, charming, and kick-ass heroine thrust into a situation...and world...she doesn't understand and fighting for more than just her own survival.
Outcast Season series: Undone (1), Unknown (2), Unseen (3), Unbroken (4)
