    Rating: 2.5 Finally finished it. After the Red Queen's trilogy, I'm been unfortunate to select books which I'm finding extremely hard to finish as they're either too slow or too tedious or simply not good enough. This is one of the 4 and I finally managed to get it done. Coming t...

    This second book in the Jinni Wars series has twin sisters, one with newly discovered Jinni powers, fighting a war on several fronts. Evocative settings, unique characters, and palace intrigue mix in this magical tale. The visualizations feel very real and bring to life a dangerous but...

    I liked the first book of this series and was so disappointed in this one. I felt like it was written quickly making the story feel disjointed. it was difficult for me to finish. ...

    I loved this sequel! Once again, this story is full of magic, romance, friendship, wishes and evil villains! I liked how not everything had a "happy ending". I mean, like some things will never change, like Zayele and Melchior, would never get along, no matter what; or Yashar would...

    I absolutely love this series. I cannot wait for the next. It is so original and beautifully crafted. After so many disappointments I am finally happy picking up another book again. I would recommend it for anyone who is tired if Mary Sue stereotypes and he'll yes I want to read whatev...

    I enjoyed being in this world again. It is so full of smells and shafts of light. Made me almost taste the desert. This book is filled with some beautiful writing. Some of the sentences made me pause with their intensity or insightfulness. Although I found the alternating pov be...

    This was a fantastic series. I'm hoping that the author writes a third because I'm interested in seeing how the jinn and the humans work together against a common enemy. Off the top of my head I can't say that there was anything wrong with the story. I didn't struggle with putting ...

    Left possibilities open for a sequel, but nicely completed this story arc. I liked the alternating view points of the girls. The romance with the prince is much less in this book, but the sister's romance with the guy who becomes her dyad partner intensifies. Very much a story of...

    I forgot how much fun I had with the first book. I really liked the way things were moving for both twins, and also for the plot... because it has kind of thickened. There are mysteries that are solved, alliances that are made, and a new enemy that resembles an old one. 3.5 out of ...

    I quite liked the first one, but pretty much all of the characters got worse in this book. In the first one, the author built some personality for the characters, but in this book it seemed like it was all settled in book 1 and did not need further elaboration, other than the jinni gir...

    Najwa and Zayele are adjusting to their new lives but as the war kicks up and everything they know is put on the line. They both have to do what they think is right but than a simple wish changed everything including the outcome of the war. I really didn't care for this one as much....

    I had a difficult time giving a rating to this book. On one hand, once I read it to the end and once I had actually finished it, I was more than ready to give it four stars. But then I started to think about it...and although I enjoyed the ebook itself immensely, for the first 3/4ths o...

    2.5 stars. Even though each chapter starts with the name of the girl whose POV it is, I would find myself having to go back and read the chapter heading again and again because I couldn't tell them apart. Their internal voice and personalities are virtually the same, and I even kept...

    The setting was what carried the first novel through for me as well as a semi-original concept. Unfortunately, that just wasn't enough to sustain the second book. The characters were terribly flat with ZERO development. Again, I frequently had to flip to the front of the chapter to rem...

    This book is cool because you get more into the main characters, their worlds, and their roles. It doesn't have the amazing plot twist, and it is a little more political, but still fun. The humans and jinn are now trying to work together and unify, but it takes a lot of work. They are ...

    This book was just as fun as the first, with lots of friendship and romance and adventure, as well as some really original lore and world building. I liked watching both girls grow into their new roles and figure out their place in the world. The romance here was minimal, but that was ...

    This book gives us more of a view into the Jinni and their world. They way everything works in their society. We also see more of the Caliphate however I was much more interested in the Jinni culture ...

    Great non-Western YA Fantasy 4.5/5 stars! I really enjoyed the The Blind Wish right from the beginning. As with The Fire Wish, the worldbuilding was breathtaking. I especially loved the Breaking and the Haunted ? they really were perfect. The ending could have been a touch stronge...

    1. Book Overview: this whole book represents that the war between human and Jinn- a magic species. furthermore, these two parts are separated by a couple of sisters. one sister is the head of human, another sister is the head of Jinn. 2. Personal response to book: this book is fit wi...

    3.5/5 Nice sequel to The Fire Wish. Just like with the first book, I really like the atmosphere that the author crafted for this story. I appreciated how the story wasn't really centred on the love stories but more on the political intrigues. This duology is, in my opinion, perfec...
