    One thought on “Unknown”

    1. This review has been cross posted on my blog. Check it out here for more book reviews! Like all Rachel Caine books, Unknown was incredibly intense. But unlike the weather warden series, where the intensity is balanced out by Jo's snarky remarks and hilarious actions, fallen Djinn Cassiel is serious from start to finish.The first book in the Outcast Season contained a different kind of humour, where the reformed Djinn observed human emotions with a clinical efficiency. However, the 2nd book of th [...]

    2. I enjoyed it. It started off on a bad note when they got pulled into healing a little girl through a situation that was way too coincidental, it was one of those cases of author laziness that makes me nuts. There was no reason for anyone to have been able to find them or pull them into that situation, it was just annoying. But it got better after that. What I really like about this series and the Weather Warden series is that the women (Cassiel and Joanne) are solidly the heroes but the men (Lui [...]

    3. 4.5 starsOriginally reviewed on my blog: readingandwritingurbanfantasy.The Good'It' FactorSometimes I just can't figure out how Caine does it. She writes in such rich detail and description that you would think it would bore the reader, but no. She has so much action and fighting going on in Unknown you would think it would be too much, but no. She writes about such complex characters you would think they'd be hard to understand, but no. I think Caine has that 'it' factor, whatever the hell it m [...]

    4. I've said it before but I'll happily say it again - I'm a massive fan of Rachel Caine's Weather Warden series, in fact I'd rate it right up there amongst my all time favorite urban fantasy series for it's fast paced, action packed, unique story lines and fantastic well drawn out characters. Of course I was expecting to like the spin off Outcast Season series but what has surprised me is the fact that I think I'm growing to love these books even more than I love the Weather Warden ones. Although [...]

    5. Rachel Caine is one prolific author. She writes three different series' of books, all within the urban fantasy genre, and she manages to put out sequels to all three yearly. And while the quality of her books is quite good in comparison to most, there are signs that Caine's writing is getting a bit formulaic.In "Unknown," the second book of her Outcast Season series, Caine continues the story of Cassiel, a Djinn that has been cast to Earth and stripped of her powers. Forced to rely on the Warden [...]

    6. Cassiel, a Djinn-turned-human, is faced with a huge predicament revealed at the end of Undone: give in to Ashan's demands and thus, become Djinn again, or fight Pearl--a malevolent force she destroyed thousands of years ago--but as a human this time.Paired with Luis Rocha, the duo are constantly attacked by child soldiers trained by Pearl. Not only that, but more and more reports of missing children are popping up everywhere they turn. Isabel, kidnapped in the prior installment of this series, i [...]

    7. This book was non-stop action from beginning to end. There was really barely any time between issues to stop and take a breath or to progress the relationship between Luis and Cassiel. I was kind hoping for a little bit of downtime like Jo and David got in the Weather Warden series, but I think that Cassiel and her gang have their hands full right out of the gate. Their situation almost seems too dire to get out of and I can’t wait to see how Rachel Caine works this out. Really, how do you sav [...]

    8. Full disclosure: this is the first of Rachel Caine’s books that I’ve read. For the most part I was able to follow along quite well—nicely done on Ms. Caine’s part—although of course I would have gotten more out of Unknown if I had the background.Cassiel is fundamentally alien without being randomly weird or boringly wooden. One of the more skillful things Ms. Caine has done is depict the very gradual changes Cassiel is going through as she adjusts to her humanity. I also very much enjo [...]

    9. Cassiel is torn between her old self who couldn’t care less about mortal scurrying and scrambling around, and her new, reluctant connection to the human world. She is thrown into a mystery; someone is kidnapping children, and Cassiel and Rocha’s brother, Luis, are the only ones who have the resources (and the audacity) to track the missing children while dodging law enforcement and a mysterious, deadly enemy.This book broke my two year no-book-buying streak. The end of Book 1, Undone, hit me [...]

    10. I admit it. I'm a Rachel Caine junkie. i got hooked on the Weather Warden series and now I'm thoroughly hooked on the Outcast Season series. I think I might actually like Cassiel better than I liked Joanna. (I know, insert gasp here).This is what I love about these books. I can expect for 300ish pages to get tons of action, steamy hot characters (with none of the smut that's typically accompanying said steamy hot characters), guns, crime-fighting, magic, fantasy and a story that has so many twis [...]

    11. I cannot rave enough about this book. Cassiel is an amazing character who makes you want to hug her then slap her. She gets to unleash a little bit of her Djinn craziness and when she does, holy cow! I gasped, I laughed, I swooned, and I almost cried because this book was just made of awesomesauce!

    12. I really enjoyed the relationship between Luis and Cassiel. I liked the book a lot, but the end felt a little anticlimactic. The best past is that it didn't end with a big cliffhanger, so I won't be freaking out for the next year.

    13. A former Djinn is trying to destroy another outcast Djinn that she foolishly didn't completely destroy in their last battle. Now, it looks like the only way to destroy her enemy is to destroy all of humanity, including the child and Warden she's come to love as she becomes more human. Hesitant to kill those she loves, and billions of other strangers, Cass and Luis struggle to stop Pearl from abducting more children to twist into powerful evil soldiers while she hides her time to destroy th Djinn [...]

    14. Cass has become aware that the nuclear option of wiping out humanity might become the only option to stop Pearl from destroying everything, and it horrifies her. She and Luis struggle to find children with Warden powers who have gone missing and realize Pearl is raising an army, and that it's a distraction. Through it all, Cass questions her identity as djinn and fears the djinn persona locked deep in her person. She's been cut off by the djinn, even for help, and the Wardens are in bad shape. C [...]

    15. Another heart-pounding, fast-paced episode in the Outcast Season series. So much happens so often, it's hard to keep up!

    16. Interesting and adventurous. Not predictable like many other novels of its kind. An enjoyable read.

    17. Not as good as the first in the series - but I will read the next one. Plot feels a bit thin in this one - reads like one long chase with the main female character having no real power.

    19. Review originally posted on my blog: A Book ObsessionNot quite human, not quite djinn, Cassiel is still struggling as she hovers the line between them. Her human side comes with a whole slew of emotions, the most being centered around her attraction to her Warden partner, Luis. Meanwhile they are still searching for the missing children and have hit many roadblocks along the way. But nothing could have prepared them for what they are about to face, and it will take every last bit of strength and [...]

    20. To read this review and others like it check out my site at UFReviews My vacation reading continues with the second book in the Outcast Season Series by Rachel Caine. I really enjoyed the first book, which was a nice set up for the big show downs that seem like they are going to continue throughout the short series. Starting with Cassiel, she is becoming more and more human every day, although she is more than able to still act and think like a Djinn. There is a serious oh my God moment in this [...]

    21. Spoiler Alert! In Unborn we were introduced to Cassiel, one of the old Djinn who had been cast out by Ashan after she refused to destroy humanity to eliminate a bigger threat to the Djinn – Pearl. Now in human form and no longer connected to the aetheric, she was forced to rely on the Warden’s whose power she now needed to sustain her in order to survive. She was assigned to work with Manny Rocha and developed a bond with his daughter Isabel. When Manny and his wife are murdered and Isabel w [...]

    22. I know that I like this series mind you, I was a fan of the Weather Wardens too!There is a sense of story building the moulding/shaping Cass, the decisions she makes and her relationship with LuisAlso her brief touches with the Mother Earth (view spoiler)[Imara is a Oracle and she helps Cass but with warnings and she gifts Cass with the list of Warden children but it must never be touched by anotherIt is surprising when she cuts off her hand but an equal level of surprise when she is able to sh [...]

    23. Known by many for her witty YA vampire series, Rachel Caine is also author to an urban fantasy series, The Outcasts. Unknown is the second novel in this new series, and if this book is any indication, the series is sure to be one wild ride!How do you stop a powerful rogue djinn from destroying the world, save the captured Warden children, fall in love with your own personal Warden, and come to terms with your fall from God-like powers? Cassiel is about to find out! But will she be able to handle [...]

    24. Plot: This is book two of her Outcast Season series. Book two comes after book one, obviously, but sometime around seven or eight of the Weather Warden series. Probably was not the best bet to write a book that is taking place simultaneously with another series and not be honest about the order they actually go in. This is Cassiel’s continued attempts to take down Pearl as a human after having refused the conduit Djinn, Ashan. Teamed with Luis and an assortment of others along the way Cassiel [...]

    25. The second book in Outcast Season series finds Cassiel and (her potential love interest) Earth Warden Luis Rocha following trails of more missing children; children with amazing Warden powers that are trained by evil Pearl, to kill anything that stands her way. This time, they have the help from unlikely ally, a New Djinn, Rashid, and an FBI agent/Fire Warden, Ben Turner. Though soon, both Cassiel and Luis realize that trust is not something they can afford I swear, reading this book is like run [...]

    26. As weird as it sounds, I was disappointed that it had way too much action. I kind of missed out on the true Djinn/human conflictions Cassiel had in the first book. I can't quite comment too much on the content of this book because I can barely remember what happened. None of it seemed as memorable as the Undone. Rachel Caine does a good job at describing action and that golem battle was quite good, I can almost see it as a scene in a movie. The saving grace of this book is the description of act [...]

    27. Summary: This is continuation of the enemy they where facing in the first book, Pearl. Luis and Cassiel's relationship keeps evolving as they continue to get more comfortable with each other. As the book goes on Pearl continues to get more viscous with her attacks, and her waste of human life. They are still trying to find a way to beat her. Several new revelations come into play that shock them into realizing the enemy they are facing is a lot more terrifying than they could ever imagine. This [...]

    28. I've been waiting for this book for six months since I read the first book, UNDONE, last year. Rachel Caine is spectacular and by far, my favorite author ever. And I can't talk about this book without a little spoiling of the first book so if you haven't read the first, go read it and then come back and read this review. In fact, while you're at it, read the Weather Warden series too, because this is a spin off series of the Weather Wardens.That being said, I will continue my gushing of Rachel C [...]

    29. RATING: 2.5 stars.So far, the "Oucast Season" series has just been an average reading for me. I like the overall concept (and the fact that you don't have to read the Weather Warden series - which I didn't, yet - to get the story) and Cassiel's character is interesting, but I just feel the author is not giving us enough in each book. From what I've seen (or read) so far, the story will only be concluded in the last book of the series which means that not only each book ends with a cliffhanger (l [...]
