the fire wish by amber lough
July 22nd, 2014
A jinni. A princess. And the wish that changes everything. . . .
Najwa is a jinni, training to be a spy in the war against the humans. Zayele is a human on her way to marry a prince of Baghdad—which she’ll do anything to avoid. So she captures Najwa and makes a wish. With a rush of smoke and fire, they fall apart and re-form—as each other. A jinni and a human, trading lives. Both girls must play their parts among enemies who would kill them if the deception were ever discovered—enemies including the young men Najwa and Zayele are just discovering they might love.
I can't help myself be really excited for this book! I've always loved stories where two main characters have to switch places/pretend to be each other. And I have a feeling this one won't disappoint. Plus, it's set in Baghdad! And there's magic, jinnis, war, princesses! Oh and look! There's some romance included too! What more do you want? :)
Cover thoughts: The lamp is striking. And thank God they didn't use the characters. I much prefer using symbols/objects for covers rather than models. Plus, the background gives us a glimpse of the setting (I only just noticed about the door!)
