My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I received an ARC of the book in exchange for an honest review.
I absolutely loved it. A rocking story. The main concept is way old—the Genie and the magic lamp in the Arabian nights, who grants three wishes to his master. But I liked the fact that more contemporary elements are woven into the tale. Ingrid while keeping the mystical and magical elements intact added just the right dosage of drama, romance, and action to keep my interest and had me glued to the book.
Marielle is a normal girl with regular problems. Her life is laced with one tragedy after another. She is broken, lonely, trying to keep herself from drowning in her sorrows. She is distrustful and yet still trying to hang on to the last threads of her sanity. Farris is the angel in disguise—the only one who can right the wrongs—but will Marielle trust him enough to accept her share of three wishes…
An enigmatic tale of love, revenge, and magic. A must read.
