Waiting on WednesdayWaiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine which spotlights upcoming book releases that we're especially looking forward to!
Here's my pick this week:
The Fire Wish by Amber LoughI haven't read a story about trading places in a loooong time and The Fire Wish sounds like the perfect cure for that. I love the exotic setting and the combination of princes, princesses and a jinni. There does seem to be a romantic element to this but I think if it's done well, it could be quite entertaining - even funny at times. I feel sure our dual MC's will get into all kinds of exciting adventures along the way...so I'm really wishing to get ahold of this one soon :)
The Fire Wish #1
Expected Publication: July 22nd 2014 by Random House
A jinni. A princess. And the wish that changes everything. . . .
Najwa is a jinni, training to be a spy in the war against the humans. Zayele is a human on her way to marry a prince of Baghdad—which she’ll do anything to avoid. So she captures Najwa and makes a wish. With a rush of smoke and fire, they fall apart and re-form—as each other. A jinni and a human, trading lives. Both girls must play their parts among enemies who would kill them if the deception were ever discovered—enemies including the young men Najwa and Zayele are just discovering they might love.
