The Wardens Association has been around pretty much forever. Some Wardens control Fire, others control Earth or Water or Wind—and the most powerful can control more than one. Without wardens, Mother Nature would wipe humanity off the face of the earth...
Joanne Baldwin is a Weather Warden. Usually, all it takes is a wave of her hand to tame the most violent weather. But now, Joanne is trying to outrun another kind of storm: accusations of corruption and murder. So, she’s resorting to the very human tactic of running for her life…
Her only hope is Lewis, the most powerful warden known. Unfortunately, he’s also on the run from the Council. It seems he’s stolen not one but three bottles of Djinn—making him the most wanted man on earth. And without Lewis, Joanne’s chances of surviving are as good as a snowball in—well, a place she may be headed. So, she and her classic Mustang are racing hard to find him—because there’s some bad weather closing in fast...
“[Ill Wind’s] forecast calls for murder, mayhem, magic, meteorology—and a fun read. You’ll never watch the Weather Channel the same way again.”—Jim Butcher, bestselling author of The Dresden Files

Might be a little slow to start for some people but it picks up and gets really interesting. It's a good read, and if you like it you should definitely check out the other books in the series. They get better and better after each one.
An exciting concept to explore, I definitely love "Jo" !
At first the book is a little slow to start but once it gets going it is interesting. I like the concept of the story. However you do get a tiny bit lost at times. It's also obvious that the spelling was never checked. There are quite a few mistakes. All in all it was a decent book; an easy read.
