Editorial Reviews

Review

"While book one focused primarily on Azra's resistance to her magicand determination to remain as human as possible, book two takes a sharpturn into high fantasy as Azra and her friends and family band together tostop the oppressive rule of the Afrit, the jinn ruling class. Romance and wishgranting take a backseat to friendship, political intrigue, and Azra'smaturation and ongoing discovery of her heritage. Fans of the first bookshould be satisfied by this conclusion." -- Maggie Reagan, Booklist
 

"Fans of the first book should be satisfied by this conclusion."--Booklist

"Romance readers will enjoy a couple titillating scenes between Azra and Nate, along with Azra’s ambivalent feelings for her best friend, Henry―indeed, it is this relationship between friends that is the most compelling part of the novel."--VOYA

If you read Becoming Jinn and thought "But...But...what happens?" then fear not. This book actually does deliver on the overarching promise of a conflict between the Afrit and the Jinn. Meanwhile, it's mixed Azara doing less mangling and more managing of relationships--including when to let them go. It's what I would term "sweet" and while there are a few references to sex, they're all very oblique and it's left to the reader in most ways to determine who did what with who.

The theme so central to the first book (family) makes a comeback, and therein lies my only complaint regarding the book - I expected given the rest of the book to have sacrifice be the key to the final conflict, and no doubt, there's some, but I expected more. For teen readers in particular, the things Azara gives up will pluck at the heart strings, but I'm a heartless bastard with a taste for seeing characters suffer in order to triumph, so take it for what you will.

As great as the first book! My 12 year old girl has been eagerly awaiting this book and loves it as much as the first. She has been bringing it with her everywhere she goes and is almost done - a good sign!

I absolutely adored Becoming Jinn last year - plus that ENDING! - so I was thrilled when I was invited to read and join the blog tour of Circle of Jinn.

We catch up with Azra now that she's granting wishes under the direction of the Afrit council. She's still struggling with her estrangement from her sisters in the Jinn world, and with a wish that she doesn't want to grant incorrectly.

So it's that struggle that drives her to learn how to better control her Jinn powers and figure out her heritage, when a mysterious stranger comes into her life...

What i loved about Circle of Jinn was Lori's gentle emphasis that time continues to march on, regardless of whether you are Jinn or not, and regardless of whether you want to be Jinn or not. This is Azra's new normal now, and she has to learn how to deal with it.

This hits especially close to home, when she's confronted both with a wish she doesn't necessarily want to grant, and when she comes face-to-face with Lailah after a period of estrangement. Azra sees just how much she's missed her sister Jinn, and it's up to her to right all of the balances in her life.

While I loved Goldstein's debut, I love Circle of Jinn even more, because it's so obvious how much Goldstein has grown as a writer. The stakes are higher, the character development is more well-rounded and our attachments to the characters are so much deeper.

Though the build-up is slow, it's worth the pay-off and the surprises along the way. I was especially intrigued by the introduction of a new secondary character, who helps to round out the questions that Azra has had about her world, and helps bridge her two lives together.

All in all, a gorgeous secondary read that you can't miss.

Before I start this review, I would like to thank Lori for letting me read Circle of Jinn, as an advanced reader. I got Circle of Jinn in the mail two days before Christmas, and it was like a Christmas present for me, a brand new book! As soon as the holiday rush was over, I settled down in front of a fire with this book. It was a perfect escape. This book continues Azra’s journey, making her problems in the first book seem very small and petty. She finds out much more about her family, her friends, her past, her role in the world, and herself. She has changed so much from the start of the story, where she resisted her power, to becoming fully one with being Jinn.
As in Becoming Jinn, the world is the most immersive part of the story. When I read this book, I am in the setting. Another big part is characters, and their developments. In this book, every character has a secret, and many of them come out. And there are almost as many surprises as there are secrets. As an avid reader I have become very good at predicting plot twists and turns, but this book had quite a few that caught be by surprise.
With themes of accepting yourself and others for who they are, this book has a perfect mix of magic, family relationships, and romance. This book wraps up Azra’s story, with an ending that answers most questions, but still leaves enough for the readers imagination to think of what might happen to the characters father in the future.

I was very happy I won the ARC from a Goodreads' giveaway as I was having a hard time waiting for release day. I really liked Becoming Jinn, and I couldn't wait to read the rest of her story. Circle of Jinn lived up to my expectations. It kept me reading past my bedtime on more than one night, and brought me to tears on more than one scene. As I predicted, there was more plot in the sequel, but it also had the same heart wrenching tension that got me wrapped around Azra's wrist the first book around. I'm only giving it 4 stars because I felt the ending was a bit rushed, but that could be me not wanting the story to end. I highly recommend it.
