(The Djinn Order #2)
Publication date: January 19th 2016
Genres: Adult, Fantasy, Romance, Steampunk
Glory St. Pierre never thought so many lies could hold so much truth, especially when her entire life has been one of those lies. Now that she knows who she really is, she must find a way to come to terms with it before the Djinn sorcerer Rasputin and his steel army descend down upon the human and Djinn realms, wielding magic so dark even her own Djinn lover, Irving, is wary of it.
Their only hope to save the realms are a couple of hunters and the Lords of the Djinn Order, four powerful Djinn who have remained elusive for centuries. Armed with her only granted wish, a fabulous airship, and the Djinn she loves by her side, Glory will embark on a quest to find the four lords and enlist their help. But there is a reason the lords have been in hiding, and once this tiny band of adventurers awakens them from their slumber, they will set off a chain of events that has been in the making since the beginning of time.
There is no turning back now.
I have a problem with this book. It’s too short – I wanted more!
That aside, this novel was all about developing the relationships. But secrets and lies permeate those relationships, causing them to be tested. And, when there is a lack of communication, there is potential for misunderstanding.
The story-telling kept me on edge, waiting for the other shoe to drop. And, for me at least, it felt as though Glory’s mother’s feelings were the ones that were bleeding through the narrative and colouring Glory’s interactions.
Looking forward to book 3.
(Book 1 – Wish For Me – will be 99¢ the week of the tour!)
