Can I be honest and say this was one of the most delicious books I’ve read in a long time???? Can I???? I’ve always been a sucker for high fantasy so I never really looked at anything modern, but I now feel like I’ve just been living under a rock my whole life!!! Heather Demetrios weaves a golden, amethyst tale of smoky jinni lore with a steaming love story.
Nalia was one of the most powerful jinni in her realm, the only survivor of a deadly coup that killed almost everyone she loved. Struggled into a bottle and sold into the lavish Hollywood hills, Nalia’s tremendous power can serve one person and one person only: her master, Malek. Now add in another jinni, this time, it’s Raif, her sworn enemy, but he swears he can free Nalia, but only on his terms.
All the characters were deep, so much going on, not one of them a pure hero. But those make the best characters, don’t they?? I don’t know about you, but we fight more than just our world’s problems. We fight within ourselves about what to do with the world.
And the writing was so, so beautiful. I’ve never been to Hollywood, but I feel like I have now!! Details are what makes a story real and this story had lots. And with such a magical plot, that’s exactly what was needed.
Warning: I’ve read so many mixed reviewes about the relationships in this book!!! Will there be a love triangle?? Do I want one? Do I ever want one? Should I even be happy about this? <3 I mean, people told me this book would make me blush, and it sure did!!!!! :)
A big thank you goes out to Heather Demetrios for making up boys like Raif and Malek. What fine specimens they are!!
