it was amazing
Read from December 19 to 31, 2012

I absolutely loved the focus on the djinn in this book. I think myths like this are fascinating, and I found Eno's exploration of the djinn through her main character Lelah to be interesting as well as creative.

But what made the book so enjoyable was that beyond the mythology was a strong and intriguing heroine. Lelah is a character who is easy to root for and care about in spite of the fact that she has a dark side that leads to a truly disturbing event. Eno does a great job of making the reader care for Lelah as she comes to grips with who she is and the extent of the power she has. Lelah is left with a choice no one should have to make, and I know I will be looking forward to what Eno has planned for the character in upcoming books.
