So last year I was apart of the Becoming Jinn Blog Tour and featured a interview with main character Azra! This interview features questions like “What is the craziest Jinn story you heard growing up?”, “Where is your favorite place to hide?” and even a speed round! Make sure to check out the full post here.
Book 2 Circle of Jinn comes out this May and to help prepare book 1 is on sale for a limited time!
Azra has just turned sixteen, and overnight her body lengthens, her olive skin deepens, and her eyes glisten gold thanks to the brand-new silver bangle that locks around her wrist. As she always knew it would, her Jinn ancestry brings not just magical powers but the reality of a life of servitude, as her wish granting is controlled by a remote ruling class of Jinn known as the Afrit.
To the humans she lives among, she’s just the girl working at the snack bar at the beach, navigating the fryer and her first crush. But behind closed doors, she’s learning how to harness her powers and fulfill the obligations of her destiny.
Mentored by her mother and her Zar “sisters,” Azra discovers she may not be quite like the rest of her circle of female Jinn . . . and that her powers could endanger them all.
