Publisher's Summary

When Aladdin discovers Zahra's jinni lamp, Zahra is thrust back into a world she hasn't seen in hundreds of years, a world where magic is forbidden and Zahra's very existence is illegal. She must disguise herself to stay alive, using ancient shape-shifting magic, until her new master has selected his three wishes. But when the King of the Jinn offers Zahra a chance to be free of her lamp forever, she seizes the opportunity, only to discover that she is falling in love with Aladdin. When saving herself means betraying him, Zahra must decide once and for all: is winning her freedom worth losing her heart? As time unravels and her enemies close in, Zahra finds herself suspended between danger and desire in this dazzling retelling of Aladdin from acclaimed author Jessica Khoury.

interesting take on a classic fairytale

I would recommend this book to those who like "remixed" fairy tales. The writing style was at a teen level but the story didn't center on feelings or entirely focus on the romance. I feel the characters were nicely developed. Narration was fine, diction was a little strange sometimes but that could have been related to the level of literature. Overall, worth the listen!

Very enjoyable

I purchased this book because it is narrated by Cassandra Campbell, who is one of my favorites. But the book itself is very fun and enjoyable. I felt myself right there with Aladin and his Genie.
