Here's a little about the book but warning this could be a spoiler for you.
Liv is a junior in high school on spring break she goes to Egypt with her older brother. She finds ten beautiful bottles and buys them all. She goes back home to Michigan gives a few to friends and keeps one. After that Gabe shows up in her room and she assumes he's her brother's friend she sends him off and after that the story goes on. There are still a lot of unanswered questions like why her gran showed fear of Gabe and what happened to her parents. Etc. Watching Gabe who has no remorse for killing girls fall in love with Liv is ok. Thar part kinda feels a little off, but the end pulls it together. His Elixir is confusing though. He said it would tie him to an Evil Goddess and her sisters but then it says he belongs to know one. Hopefully the next book will clear up the confusion. All in all, I gave this a 4 star review because it was a nice change from Vampires, Werewolves, and Shifters.
I'd give The Smoking Lamp more than 5 Stars if they would let me. It deserves many more stars.
This is the 1st story I've read with a Jinn. WOW! I had no idea what being a Jinn meant. Or what letting a Jinn out of his bottle meant to the human. I love all the layers and details woven into this story. I've formed an idea about Gran and can't wait to see if I'm anywhere close to right. She is definitely an enigma.
It's amusing to watch Gabe understand the words but not the meanings we put on them. Just like anyone who knows a foreign language but not all the nuances he takes things literally sometimes. Liv is an unusual teenager. While her friends all care about their looks and work at looking 'perfect', Liv doesn't care about her appearance. It was refreshing.
As you've guessed by now, I LOVED this book. I strongly urge you to read it. I urge you to all books by Kimberly Loth. All of her books grab me from page one and don't let go. Find out what you've been missing if you're not reading her books.
Overall, points for a decent concept and story but even when I was in high school I would have thought it better geared towards a younger audience
