Unknown (Outcast Season, #2) by Rachel CaineThis 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 Jos 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 the Outcast Season seems to lack this humour, as the whole book has a very dark premise - Pearl, a Djinn enemy is using children with powers to do her bidding, including attacking Cassiel and her Earth warden companion, Luis Rocha.
It seems Rachel Caine has a knack for end of the world, apocalyptic scenarios, and while most of the Wardens are out on a cruise ship preventing a massive storm from consuming them (in Cape Storm, Weather Warden #8), Cassiel and Luis are busy with preventing Pearl from destroying humans, Djinn, and everything they stand for.
While I like Cassiel and her scary badass Djinn ways, the whole reason I liked the Undone was because the story seemed contained. We never really got a break from the whole epic feel in the weather warden series; the cast is always at odds with the rest of the world, until Undone, the first of the Outcast Season. It was refreshing reading about this Djinn developing human emotions for a young girl and her uncle, which added to the charm of the series.
Unfortunately, thats the reason why I didnt love Unknown as much as the weather warden series and the first Outcast book. The world is constantly under gun from multiple forces, and it seems a little too dire for the humans.
Im still going to keep reading though, because I love Rachel Caines work.
Outcast season 2 release date revealed
By Nellie Andreeva. The news comes as a little surprise. Outcast had been on the back burner at Cinemax , with its second season finally airing this summer, two and a half years after it was ordered and about two years after it was produced. The options on the cast have long lapsed, and everyone had moved on. A few months after Cinemax renewed Outcast for Season 2 in March ahead of its series premiere, the network overhauled its programming strategy, pulling away from expensive, dark hometown series like Outcas t in favor of fun, high-octane, action, pulpy dramas done in a cost-effective way primarily as international co-productions.
