She is the most powerful Jinni of all He is a boy from the streets Their love will shake the world When Aladdin discovers Zahra's jinni lamp Zahra is thrust back into a world she hasn't seen in hundreds of years a world where magic is forbidden and Zahra's very existence is illegal She mu 4 12 starsMy my what an enchanting retelling of Aladdin brimming with magic humour villains and good kissing ‘‘Give me thy hand’’ said the ueen ‘‘and let us be friends For does not the poet say one true hearted friend is worth ten thousand camels laden with gold?’’ This the Jinni pondered before replying ‘‘The poet also says woe to the man who befriends the jinn for he shakes hands with death’’ Zahra is a jinni For thousands of years she has granted wishes Freedom is something she knows is impossible but that doesn’t keep her from trying to break her curse and uit being a slave When Aladdin finds Zahra she is given a choice betray him and forever be free of the lamp or let his city Parthenia fall to ruins and everyone inside it dieIs that really a choice?I’ve read thousands of books and I’ve met thousands of characters but I can easily say that Zahra is a new favourite heroine of mine She stands out It’s not her beauty that makes her special or her hidden kindness but her determination She believes herself to be a monster; after all she did kill her most trusted friend Habiba Zahra puts on a hard and sturdy mask but deep inside herself she is not a four thousand year old magical creature of nightmares she’s just a a girl With unreachable hopes and dreams The desert ripples throwing the boy onto his back I shift to human form and stand beside him staring at the ground that held me captive for centuries When the dust clears there is nothing but a glinting blue stretch of sand pure and virgin coursed with wind ripples The only evidence that there ever was a garden of wonders the only testimony to the great city lost beneath the sand is a single pale coin that lies on the surface winking at the moonAnd of course there is me There is forbidden love There is adventure There is betrayal It’s one of the best fairy tale retellings I have ever read Aladdin retellings are uite rare; in the minority The last one I perused is called A Whole New World and if we compare its greatness to this one The Forbidden Wish would be the sand and A Whole New World a plain and small rock buried by it I loved this bookWe know of cases of beautiful coversbad books but I’m so relieved to say that this retelling never at any point of the story falls into that category ‘‘Even a thief may have honor and even a jinni may have a heart’’ The only thing that keeps me from giving it a five star rating is the stalling There are days and days of stalling at the beginning of the book when Aladdin and Zahra enter the palace and are waiting for the Fahradan celebration dayRegardless this is a winner ‘‘Love is a path lined with roses’’ I say bitterly ‘‘But it leads to a cliff’s edge and all who follow it tumble to their doom You will not find your happiness there’’ Blog | Youtube | Twitter | Instagram | Google

The Forbidden WishSt disguise herself to stay alive using ancient shape shifting magic until her new master has selected his three wishes  But when the King of the Jinn offers Zahra a chance to be free of her lamp forever she seizes the opportunity only to discover she is falling in love with Aladdin When THE FORBIDDEN WISH is a story that has been tugging at me for years and I'm overjoyed and honored to finally be sharing it with you at last When Zahra first came to me demanding that her side of the story be told I was immediately entranced I think the genie is the most fascinating character of the Aladdin fairytale But what if the genie were a girl? What if there were to her story? These uestions became my obsession and Zahra's voice was so strong in my mind that often while working on other books over the past few years I would sneak away to write a few pages just for her She was a character who simply refused to be ignored and I'm so glad she didn't give up on meThe stories of Aladdin and the Thousand and One Nights have always been some of my favorites Plus my grandfather has been begging me for years to write a story inspired by his homeland so Papa this one is for you I have immensely enjoyed writing this book and reliving the story of Aladdin through Zahra's eyes and I hope you will love reading it as much as I did writing it And of course may all your wishes come true 3
