Forced to obey her master.
Compelled to help her enemy.
Determined to free herself.

Nalia is a jinni of tremendous ancient power, the only survivor of a coup that killed nearly everyone she loved. Stuffed into a bottle and sold by a slave trader, she’s now in hiding on the dark caravan, the lucrative jinni slave trade between Arjinna and Earth, where jinn are forced to grant wishes and obey their human masters’ every command. She’d give almost anything to be free of the golden shackles that bind her to Malek, her handsome, cruel master, and his lavish Hollywood lifestyle.

Enter Raif, the enigmatic leader of Arjinna’s revolution and Nalia’s sworn enemy. He promises to free Nalia from her master so that she can return to her ravaged homeland and free her imprisoned brother—all for an unbearably high price. Nalia’s not sure she can trust him, but Raif’s her only hope of escape. With her enemies on the hunt, Earth has become more perilous than ever for Nalia. There’s just one catch: for Raif’s unbinding magic to work, Nalia must gain possession of her bottle…and convince the dangerously persuasive Malek that she truly loves him. Battling a dark past and harboring a terrible secret, Nalia soon realizes her freedom may come at a price too terrible to pay: but how far is she willing to go for it?

I’m definitely intrigued by the fact that this story is inspired by Arabian Nights! I don’t think I’ve read a Jinni/Genie book yet, but it seems to be a big new trend in the YA world. Hopefully this one’s as cool as it sounds!

  1. oh, this one does sound captivating, and I don’t think I’ve seen many or any genie books. When I saw the word Jini I’m like this sounds interesting.

  2. I did hear about this one too and found it interesting. But I want to read this author’s other books first, like SOMETHING REAL or I’LL MEET YOU THERE, which is another WoW candidate for me. 🙂 Thanks for sharing.
