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.
MY REVIEW – 4****
** I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review**
Having said that I must start by stating that I liked this book more than I had expected to like. First of all, because YA isn’t my favorite genre. In fact, I was more interested in the steampunk aspects of the book, which are excellent. Second reason I approached this book with caution was some of the reviews I read where the reviewers complaint they had difficulties with the fact this series is not made of standalones. I thought I’d struggle trying to follow the story but that didn’t happen. Granted the book throws the reader in the middle of the action but the author sets up the scenes in a clever way so that we can understand what’s going on without much effort. Plus, it’s always advisable to read a book’s blurb.
Star is a fan of dirty passion. She loves to read it, and she damn sure loves to write it. She is the author of the Mythos: Gods & Lovers series and the Djinn Order series. She is a night-owl and a coffee junkie, and the only sneaker she would be caught dead wearing are Converses.
