Author: Jessica Khoury
Publication Date: February 23rd, 2016
Format: Sneak Peek ARC
**I received this copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you very much! This doesn’t affect the review in any way. My opinions, as always, are my own.**
I loooved reading this sneak peek. The language/prose was beautiful, the writing style was filled with magic and wonder, and the descriptions were so vivid that sometimes I felt like I was watching a movie instead of reading a book. Khoury gets a 10/10 for her writing skills!!!! ❤ ❤
The narration is BRILLIANT. It’s written as if Zahra is telling her friend the story and that made the events sound more personal and following on the journey even more fun!
My only comment is that I got confused about all the types of creatures and I couldn’t pinpoint what Zahra was exactly. Has she always been a jinni or was she something else in the beginning?
I would love it if I’m given the full book to review because, as I said earlier, I really enjoyed reading these few chapters and really want to know how things will unfold. February 2016 is too far away.
