I don't know the author or if she has other books, this was the first one of hers that I tried. I got the sample and was interested enough after reading that to purchase the book. Big mistake! I liked the concept and was hoping it was similar to Samantha Young's series The Fire Spirits, which is also about Djinn. I didn't even make it half way through without wanting to throw it against the wall.

Kyra and her dad have always moved around and been on the run from a mysterious group of people. Her dad has kept silent about her past, her mother, and this group of people so ends up seriously surprised when this group of teenagers come and when fighting ensues they have special abilities. Needless to say they take Kyra and leave her dad beaten pretty bad. During the course of her abduction she tries to escape a few times but to no avail. At this point in the book I was liking Kyra, she seemed capable, smart, and scrappy. I liked that she didn't just give up without a fight.

When they finally get her to the compound she is introduced to two people who claim to be her real parents, claiming her dad kidnapped her as a young child. She of course does not believe this and tells them so. The first night she makes an attempt to escape only to be thwarted by Will, the man assigned to guard her and the one who abducted her from her home to bring her to this compound. He shows her a picture of her as a baby in the arms of the woman claiming to be her mom. The same picture that she has had on her nightstand growing up, the only link to her mother she has ever had. Only in her picture there was no face attached to the body holding her.

First a quick thanks to the author for giving me a copy of the book when I won a giveaway! I love winning books and this was a great prize!

Cover! I think this cover is really awesome. The colors are great and it gives an air of mystery, but once you read the story it all comes together.

I went through emotions in this book just like Kyra did. At first everything was happy and then - BOOM - your life turns upside down. I went up and down with her and I was confused during part of the book -wondering where these plot turns were going to go. However, things progress nicely and I enjoyed how time moved pretty quickly. If something wasn't important then we didn't hear about it, which is how I like my books to go. If there's a three week period and only one event goes on then I don't need to hear about all three weeks, which is something that Laura Catherine does nicely.

I admit that I was shocked that the ending was the ending. I went to turn the book and...nothing. I was pretty sad that it ended! Remember how I said that there were ups and downs? Make sure to grab some tissues towards the ending, you're going to need them.

If you guys like romance (you have to if you're here right?) then you'll be in for a treat. At one point it looks like not a love triangle, but a rectangle...although not really? You'll just have to read this to understand.

I loved all the mythology that was in the book. I've never really looked in the Djinn so it was really interesting to look at something that isn't as popular as say, vampires are. Very original content and I was super pleased! Book two next?!?

Very different from the normal "vampire and werewolves" fare. That is why I was drawn to this book. I recently read the Forbidden Trilogy by Karpov Kinrade(I may do a post on it soon), and this kind of reminds me of that series mixed in with one I love, but have yet to finish, called The Significance Series by Shelly Crane.

Kyra is a very strong character. Very strong-willed, smart, resourceful. She analyzes her situation and tries not to get too emotional.

I don't want to give any of the twists and turns away at all, but this is probably one of the least predictable YA novels I have ever read. You think you know where it's going and WHAM! a new twist. That is probably why I was up until 3 a.m. last night finishing this book. Characters aren't stereotypical, events aren't what they seem. Very refreshing in this genre.

I found myself wishing this book was longer. I wanted to know more about the Blooders, the history of the djinn and their wars. I guess if this is going to be a trilogy, there is more to come.

I also like the social commentary. Most of the time I try to ignore that, but the commentary in this book was written in such a way that it wasn't preachy, it wasn't political. It was just part of the story and events weren't contrived to get the point across. It was woven more naturally into the story.

This is strictly YA fare as well, I would be comfortable recommending it to a younger teen. I wish books like these were written when I was younger!!!

Looking forward to the next few books...

I enjoy a good YA book.

Djinn was a wonderful surprise. Laura Catherine does a wonderful job in developing a well thought-out lead and fast-paced plot. Her writing style reminds me of the Morganville Vampire Series.

Heads up though, this book is obviously the lead to another story. So please do not expect a stand-alone book with this one.

In the author's world, the sups are a different choice and with wonderfully unique abilities. Expect action, but not so much you're drowning in it.

My favorite things about Catherine's plots is that there are unexpected twists and at unexpected times. Her lead is strong if not a little cautious (which makes sense given her history). My second favorite thing about her story is that there is more than one setting. Unlike many YA books out there she goes beyond the usual "school and home" cycle.

My only complaint is that the lead has an uncanny ability to attract the opposite sex. Now, the character does have male friends, so...considering that there are special abilities in this story, I sincerely hope that this is planned. But in all seriousness, it's not a bad complaint to have since the characters are critical to the plot and not simply placed there for the sake of it.

Well done!
