Cursed to be a jinni for a thousand years, Leila nears the end of her servitude—only to be bound once again against her will. Will she risk all to be human?
Born in ancient Persia, Leila turned to her house Jinni, Kouros, for help escaping an arranged marriage. Kouros did make it impossible for her to marry—by cursing Leila to live a thousand years as a Jinni herself.
If she can remain unBound, Leila's curse will soon be over. But Ozan Sawyer, a Magi with the ability to See, Call, and Bind jinn has other plans.
Oz needs Leila to help him penetrate Pittsburgh's steel-soaked magic, a juice potent but poisonous to supernatural creatures, in order to find a missing girl with her own mysterious connection to Kouros. Unfortunately for Leila, becoming Bound to Oz may risk more than just her chance to be human once more—it could risk her very soul...
Poor Leila, cursed to be a Jinni, to serve her masters as they see fit. But when the book starts she is free and hoping to stay so since her curse will be ending soon *fingers crossed*.
But what kind of book would that be? A boring one. So insert a Magi that needs help and that needs a Jinni. He finds her, he binds her, she is pissed! But then who would not be. She is his slave.
But ;) of course these two are slowly gonna think, huh, he/she is hot. There is romance after all in this book. And the Magi is really nice, and Leila is hot. But slowly. Nothing is really happening in this book. They have time. There are more books.
Ok so I told you about the hint of coming romance. Now let's talk about the danger. First, find a kidnapped teen. Second, what is going on? Why are people gunning for them? A race against the clock. Tick tock, in more than one way.
I liked the jinni mythology, that was great, honestly I could have read only that. I like interesting world building and I have not seen a lot of Jinnis around.
Interesting start, I'd like to see more
