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.

Teen/YA Supernatural Fantasy with a Djinn!
I love this genre and the story was outstanding! The main character is strong and independent with tragedy striking her at the beginning of the book. I loved the mystery and intrigue. Everything going on kept me on my feet and guessing. This was a book I wanted to read straight through.
Narration was excellent and brought the story to life.
The characters were well developed and the story was even better than expected. I'm not familiar with Djinn's stories but this story was very good and kept me interested all the way to the conclusion.
I'm really looking forward to her next book.

Loved, loved, loved it
It took me awhile to get into this listen but once I did, I could not stop. This inventive story was mischievous and chivalrous with magic and spirits and it made for quite a nice afternoon. The djinn, Faris, was the embodiment of a knight in shining armor. Marielle, the djinn's "master", was a bit irksome but she was 19. She did make me want to scream too many times to count but all's well that ends well.
The narration was incredibly well-done. Angelini made an angry and sometimes petulant teen girl, a swoon-worthy djinn, a host of high school mean girls, and a family of Mexican immigrants, into believable entities.
There was a nice good versus evil battle at the end making for a great set up to book two. I'm looking forward to it.
