When eighteen year old Ari Johnson is transported from her bedroom into the chilling realm of Mount Qaf - home to the terrifying and mercurial Jinn - she learns a truth that rocks her very world. Suddenly her anxiety over college and her broken friendship with Charlie seem like small change compared to the war she now finds herself stuck in the middle of. Her unease isn’t lessened any by the hot guardian, Jai, who won’t stop following her around everywhere - a Jinn whose loyalty Ari hates to question but must. She has no idea who she can trust.
When the truth burns through her life in its determination to turn it to ashes, Ari will have to battle with ancient deadly creatures, epic family drama and heart-wrenching romantic entanglements.
My Opinion 4 STARS
So this book has been on my kindle for well over a year and boy am i glad i finally got round to reading it.
Ok, so I am so on team Jai.
Don't get me wrong but Charlie in this book acts more like a dufuss, only really being there for Ari when he realises what's at stake and possibly even more what she can do for him. It seems that Charlie has an ulterior motive, especially after being so excited to hear that myths can be true.
I like Jai. The emotionally troubled Jinn (though I think he would take offended at being called that). Jai does his best to keep his distant from Ari, but we all know something is bound to happen between them.
Ari is a strong individual who is just looking for the acceptance from her dad, then her world is thrown into chaos. Not only is she not human, but she is an object of power that could win the war between the ruling Jinn and their father.
A story well told and I can't wait to read the second book.
