Book Description

The discovery of an ancient bottle unleashes a Genie - and the wrath of the Demon Gypsies chasing her...

When Suzette (“Suki”) is released from her bottle by two teen girls, she is more than a bit surprised that a Genie of her calibre is beholden to two average high school students. After dealing with dignitaries and noblemen, however, she believes this will be a welcome break.

Until she discovers the teens’ hidden powers and that one will come to possess the Amulet of Pollox, a necklace that contains the secrets from some of the greatest minds throughout history. Unfortunately, she’s not the only one who notices. The Amulet draws the attention of the two powerful and vengeful Demon Gypsies who have pursued Suki through time and will stop at nothing to snatch the girls and the Amulet.
 
Suddenly, Suki is not just helping the girls navigate high school crushes, she’s safeguarding them from danger unlike anything they’ve ever known. To make matters more complicated, she must also fight her attraction to James - her protector through the ages - whose sudden arrival threatens her resolve and her heart.  

A time-traveling Genie and her unrequited love...
Demon Gypsies with an insatiable quest for power...
And the teen girls whose existence threatens them all.

This is the world of “Released,” book one of The Romani Realms series by Mia Fox, a Young Adult trilogy featuring elements of paranormal romance and steampunk.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quirky, Fun, Magical! April 27, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Released by debut author Mia Fox is brilliantly witty, charming and fresh! Remember the tale of the genie in the bottle who must grant three wishes to the person who releases them, you know, when the big genie with the turban and crossed arms kind of smokes out of the bottle? Well, forget that guy, Suki, is anything but the stereotypical genie and hot on her tail is her an ex-friend on a mission of revenge! This genie has style, a quirky attitude and has kept up on the world throughout the years while imprisoned. Seriously, she even has investments, fashion connections and a keen sense of style! Best friends, Samantha and Charlotte, two lonely teens with equally sad pasts pool their money to buy Suki's bottle at a secondhand shop. Meanwhile, lurking in the background is Raven, once Suki's best friend, now her bitter enemy, out to destroy her, chasing her through the centuries since the Salem Witch Trials. Along with her sidekick, Phineas, Raven will do anything to break Suki, including attacking Samantha and Charlotte, who thanks to Suki, are being transformed from plain Janes to beautiful butterflies and are getting noticed by the guys they are crushing on!

Mia Fox has created a loveable and warm character in Suki! Her dialogue alone is worth the read as she narrates for us! Each character is well developed and fit perfectly in place. Some have their own secrets that even Suki doesn't know! James sounds just plain hot! The plot is great, the story flows by with never a dull moment or a "snag" to slow you down. This is just a delight to read! Definitely fun, with that final hook at the end that I actually NEVER saw coming and has me waiting anxiously for book two in this series! Wow!! Mia has set the bar high for herself, but with Suki's help, and her own talent, it shouldn't be a problem to beat!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great start to a new series! April 11, 2013
By GB
Format:Kindle Edition
Ms. Fox is a new author and has written a really creative and interesting story! I have read many paranormal romances but, none about a genie so I was excited to give this book a try! The book is classified as YA but, doesn't have to be just for the younger gen readers, there's something for people from 15-100 in it. The characters Ms. Fox has created are very believable and likable, she has really captured the teenage mentality quite well. The main character, Suki (a genie) is quirky and funny. Ms. Fox puts a humorous, unique spin on historical characters and events in this book which constantly made me laugh. The girls (Charlotte and Samantha) find Suki's bottle on a shelf in the thrift store and aren't aware of all the events that are to follow that fated day. Lots of excitement, danger, deceit, humor and a bit of love happening throughout the book. By the end, you will sympathize with a villian and root for a good guy (or three or four!!!). Great start to a new series of books! The end of book one will have you ready for book two! Can't wait to see what happens next and to watch the characters grow!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great start to a new series April 13, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This is Mia Fox Debut Novel, The Romani Realms Series is a Trilogy with RELEASED being the first book in this series.

And look at the Cover it's just beautiful.
My first thought is...
Holds up a big sign with flashing words saying....
If you're looking for something a little unique and different from what you have been reading lately then this wondrous book is for you.

This book is so good and so different you get entranced from the first page till the last this is one you can't put down till you have finished.

The back story to this book is about two best friends one a Genie (Suki) and one a Demon Gypsie (Raven) one feels betrayed; the other thought she was doing the right thing. And over the centuries there has been a battle going on between them.

Now we are in the present day where we meet best friends Samantha (great name by the way) and Charlotte who both have tragic pasts and have formed a great bond they are BFF and that shows all the way through this book. Mia writes their friendship beautifully, they are very close and will do anything for each other and this proves to come true as the story goes on. They are your typical teenage girls who both have crushes on the popular boys at school Ryan and Josh. The boys play a small part in this book but I'm hopeing in book two we find out more about them.

When the Girls find a bottle in a shop and end up taking it home something happens to them which ends up tragically for Samantha and she ends up in Hospital. When Charlotte goes to the hospital she takes the bottle to and when said bottle is in both their hands a wish is made and Suki is set free.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gypsy vs Genie December 14, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was the most imaginative reboot for genies I have ever read! I never knew what was going to happen next. The characters were faced with unimaginable choices and picking the right course became more and more difficult as the story grew increasingly convoluted. Humanity and goodness are difficult to strive for in a confusing world. Especially for young adults raising themselves. The bond between the girls is unwavering and unbreakable by anything or anyone short of death.

This book was full of suspense and romance. An epic battle of good(genie) and evil(gypsy demons) over power and knowledge centered on the coming of age story of two teenage girls which is a classic. I really enjoyed the characters and the world Fox created for them to live in. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys urban paranormal or modern fairytales. I can not wait to read the next book in this series!

**this book is suitable for mature young adult through adult readers
