Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 9 Up—Nalia, a powerful jinni from the world of Arjinna, has been on the dark caravan of the jinni slave trade for three years. After a deadly coup killed almost everyone she cared about, Nalia was captured by a slave trader who sells jinn to humans. Now she is trapped in Hollywood and bound to a handsome master who is as ruthless as he is powerful. Nalia is desperate for the chance to return to Arjinna and rescue her captive brother—something that seems impossible while bound to her master and the bottle that can hold her prisoner. When Nalia agrees to a dangerous bargain with the leader of Arjinna's revolution, she will have to decide if any price can be too high for her freedom. Demetrios crafts a refreshingly diverse story with nods to Arabian culture in this lengthy blend of traditional jinni lore and urban fantasy elements. Unfortunately, while Nalia is a strong and capable heroine, her positive attributes are marred by a lopsided love triangle. The well-realized world of Arjinna is similarly overshadowed by stiff descriptions and numerous explanations.—Emma Carbone, Brooklyn Public Library

Review

“The story unfolds at a swift, even pace, and the worldbuilding is superb; the jinn inhabit an intoxicating, richly realized realm of magic, politics, spirituality and history. Readers will wish they had a jinni to grant them the next book in the series.” (Kirkus Reviews (starred review))

“Blending ancient myth and glittering modernity, it’s an intricate and smartly written story.” (Publishers Weekly)

“Exquisite Captive transported me to a world that was beautiful and terrifying, sensuous and dark, and utterly unforgettable. I’ll be haunted by Heather Demetrios’s brilliant and romantic take on modern jinni lore for many nights to come.” (Megan Shepherd, author of The Madman's Daughter)

“A rich, unique world, full of characters who blaze as brightly as their tremendous powers—I was ensnared from the very first line! Exquisite Captive is a beautiful and clever reimagining of the mythology of the jinn, and utterly unlike anything I’ve ever read. Seductive, refreshing, and unforgettable!” (Sarah J. Maas, New York Times bestselling author of the Throne of Glass series)

“Demetrios crafts a refreshingly diverse story with nods to Arabian culture in this lengthy blend of traditional jinni lore and urban fantasy elements.” (SLJ)
