Goodreads Summary: Weather Warden Joanne Baldwin is on vacation when her Djinn lover, David, asks Joanne to marry him. She’s thrilled to say yes, even if some others may be less than happy about it. 

Unfortunately, Joanne’s pre-marital bliss is ended by a devastating earthquake in Florida. And she can’t ask David and his kind for assistance. Because the cause of the quake is unlike anything Joanne has ever encountered-and a power even the Djinn cannot perceive.

I really am such a fan of this series!  It’s a really fun read, and the craziness surrounding David and Joanne’s wedding and Bad Bob making an appearance…okay, I’ll admit to being surprised by that, and I totally didn’t see it coming.  But…he came back in a way that wasn’t annoying, and Bad Bob reappearing totally wasn’t cheesy. Actually, I found it pretty believable, which is good, because it totally could have gone the other way.  (I’m glad it didn’t).  

Gale Force was a lot harder to put down than some of the other books, and I think it’s because there’s only two books left.  Things keep getting worse for the Wardens, and you can’t help but wonder how things are going to end up.  We do see Luis Rocha make an appearance, which made me a little happy, because I really liked him in Outcast Season.  Which makes me wonder if there’s going to be more of a connection between the two series, and if we’ll see any of the events in Outcast Season.

The stable anti-matter was totally creepy and the Dijinn not being able to see it made it even creepier.  Seriously.  It’s creepy.  And part of me wants to how that particular development will work out…but at the same time, I don’t want to know.  Chasing Bad Bob and putting a stop to the insanity…I so hope things work out for the good guys. Admittedly, they are stretched pretty thin, and with Dijinn who are unable to detect the anti-matter, things are going to get really interesting really fast.  Well, more interesting than things already are.

Final Thoughts:

I’m not sure what else to say about Gale Force.  I totally loved it, and things are getting really intense in such a good way.  Gale Force gets 5 stars.
