Faris is a Djinn with a secret and Marielle is the first master to give him hope. Will she be the one to break his curse? There is no telling. All he really knows is she's one wish away from breaking his heart.
When Marielle was little, she used to believe Grandpa about his wish-granting Djinn. But now that she's older, her beliefs have changed, and things like lousy ex-boyfriends and alcoholic fathers have become her reality.
Life isn't done shattering her truths, though, and when Grandpa dies and the Djinn he warned her never to trust shows up at her doorstep, the world becomes a dangerous, magical place she never knew existed. Reeling for her once-normal life, Marielle soon realizes there's no going back - not when she's become part of a mortal conflict between two spell-bound Djinn - Faris, her handsome slave, and Zet, his vengeance-hungry brother. They both want something from her. One, her love. The other one, her life.
Now she's afraid she will die in love.

Worth your time and credit
Wow…really enjoyed this book. I was really looking forward to it and wasn't disappointed at all. This is a creative, original, well written story with a great cast of characters. It pulled me in immediately and held my complete attention from start to finish. It's one of those stories that you will listen to repeatedly just because it's a really good story. It's definitley worth your time and credit.
Even though it's listed as Teen I would put it more as Young Adult/New Adult Marielle is 19, even though Feris is over 2500 yrs old he appears/states he and Marielle are about the same age in the story and there is a connection between them and their feelings/romance will only continue to grow.
You know if there is a Djinn involved you are going to need to be cautious. Feris is not the typical Jinn you would first envision in your mind. I never thought about it before but how does a Jinn become a Jinn in the first place? It's a question that has a interesting and "believable" explanation in this story.
If you could have 3 wishes, what would they be? There is a lot more going on than just granting 3 wishes. Marielle is thrown into a world of magic that is full mystery, intrigue and danger. There are rules and Feris needs to follow them. He is bound/cursed and can only divulge so much information deepening the mystery surrounding him. Marielle may be Faris's first real hope in a very long time, the one person who can free him from the curse.
Lisa Angelini did a fantastic job with the narration. She was the perfect narrator for this story. Pleasant voice that is easy to listen to for long periods of time. Clearly spoken with a nice even pace. Great character voices and accents. Both male and female. With just a slight change in tone her male voices sounded great. It really throws a story off when a narrator tries to do to deep of a male voice but hers are believable and transition between male and female smoothly. She brought the story and characters to life. Hopefully she will be narrating the rest of the series. Very enjoyable
