Joanne Baldwin is a Weather Warden, she is able to control the weather and potentially lessen the danger in natural disasters. She is on the run to seek out Lewis, the most powerful warden alive in attempts to save her life. Ill Wind is a race against the clock, Joanne has to find Lewis and save herself before the other Wardens find her. There are more than a few bumps in the road for her.
The types of characters in Ill Wind was refreshing. I read a lot of Paranormal Romance and Urban Fantasy so all of the vampires and such can be tiring. There are Djinn and also wardens which control elements. The bulk of the story focuses on Joanne, so it's mainly full of weather wardens. Though a tad bit on the slow side when the book starts, it quickly progresses until you can't set it down. If you haven't read Ill Wind yet, I highly recommend it.
