Angela (Angel's Guilty Pleasures)
Jinn’s Dominion swept me away. We are pulled right into the story and Zamira’s journey to rescue her Pride.

We have heartbreak, tears, non-stop action, and adventure. The world building continues and we learn things that put is on an emotional roller coaster ride, will surprise use, and put things into context.

Lila is a fabulous secondary character. She adds humor when things are looking down, she keeps it positive and try’s to lighting up the mood. She always makes me laugh. Zam is a spitfire.

Eh. I love this series but I feel like the same thing's been happening since the first book. It is getting tiring. Zamira is getting more tough so that's good but she did make some pretty crazy decisions though. She hid things that didn't need hiding and it was so out of character for her. I hope everything can be resolved in the next book because I'm slowly getting bored.

I didn’t think it was possible to get better than the last book in this series but this one absolutely blew it out of the water! The writing and the story just keeps getting better and better as it goes on. I love the new characters that have been integrated, they’re definitely interesting and add some spice to the story. I’ve also really enjoyed Zam grow throughout these books and become the fierce alpha she’s meant to be. I really love everything about this series, it’s got absolutely everythi ...more

I just can't say it enough times Shannon Mayer is a freaking awesome storyteller, she always goes above and beyond my wildest dreams, which is pretty amazing seeing as my dreams are fairly wild at times.

Jinn's Dominion is a book that you just can't turn away from not matter the emotions your feeling at the time or depending on the page, there's a good dose of anger, love, hate, more anger, a few laugh's whether their appropriate or not will be all up to the reader's I find Li

This series gets better and better with each book. So much happened in this book, I could not put it down. I like the way Zam has really grown throughout these 3 books so far, the 4th one is going to be great I can't wait. There are some new character additions that really added to this story too, but all my favorites are still here. Love this series.
Karen  ⚜Mess⚜
This is going to be a rare event for me. Finishing a series in a fairly short amount of time. That's how much I enjoy this series.

Finally, Zam is coming to realize her history and power. Everything is set-up for a full explosion in the next book. And I know --KNOW-- love will prevail!

I never go into a Shannon Mayer book expecting it to be an easy read but boy does she put her heroines through the ringer. Zam is not having an easy ride of it. However with Maks and Lila by her side she should be able to get through this right? Umm, well throw in the usual author curve ball, and Zam is facing some of the hardest moments of her life. However whilst on the rescue mission of her pride she discovers a lot, both about herself and family and maybe just maybe her family is growing. On ...more

Alas, this one made me lose interest completely.

The writing wasn't as tight. The plot was exactly the same as the first two: Zam needed to save people, still a gem, and face the villain. The whole situation with Maks bugged the shit out of me, and I became really meh about the whole thing a third of the way into the book. I pushed past the half-way point, and I stopped caring completely.

Part of the issue was Zam swallowing all the bullshit everyone seemed intent on feeding her without a fuss.

A group of men with too much power that inherit cruelty from their fathers, want control over female bodies and reproductive rights, treat anyone who is not their race like shit, and are really concerned about a wall. Cue a pair of progressive, badass, intelligent females to smash their patriarchy. I don’t know if Mayer did it on purpose but she did manage to combine a modern political message with a really fantastic can’t put it down fantasy series.

Compelling world, great character development

Yes! Yes! Yes! Shannon Mayer continues to amaze me during every book. From Zam and Maks almost unheard of love, to Lila and her sweet almost childish innocence. This whole series twist and turns so much it will leave you wondering who is the villain and who is actually helping Zam in her quest. From the dragons, the trolls, the giants and the satyrs, the twist and turns in the Desert Cursed Series keeps you guessing. From cameos from other stories to new characters that you either love or love t ...more

I'm not going to lie, I'm feeling kind of conflicted about this book. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely loved it! I got more answers to the questions I had, but still have more questions. The reason I'm so torn is that I thought and hoped it this series was a trilogy. That would've meant this would be last book in an epic journey and Zamira might finally have peace. Instead the story has only gotten better and will go on longer, which also makes me happy. See? I'm conflicted.

All of that being sai

Speechless!! If you are considering reading this series, trust me look no further. Shannon has a way of pulling a reader into a world and turn your head upside down! What a freakin ride!! Wow!! I’m absolutely shell shocked and dying to find out what happens next in this crazy ride!! If your not sure of UF is for you, I promise you will love this series and it will turn you into a fan!!

Fantastic edition to the series! Sam and pals take on the Jinn to rescue friends and along the way have quite an adventure! This book has it all from humor, to sadness, to fighting, to achievement, and a few surprises along the way. Looking forward to the next book! The narrator did a fantastic job with providing unique voices for each character and appropriate tone inflections for each scene.

Very interesting world, Zam just keeps getting kicked but never stays down for long
There is alot of information and bits and pieces given out so it gets a bit confusing at times but this one cleared a few things up
I am looking forward to Oracle's Haunt and am glad this didn't stay a trilogy.

Another amazing magical, action packed adventure with Zam and Lila! A story that shows you family isn't always those related to you by blood. Family can also be made of close friends, those you love and want to protect with all you have. Zam is thrown into Jinn's Dominion where she learns about her heritage, faces challenges that make you reach for tissues. Hard to say more without spoilers. Another powerful leading female character that does what she needs to for her "family". Typical of Shanno ...more

I absolutely loved this book! This entire series so far has been fantastic! These are books you stay up and read through the night because you want to know what happens next. I have done this with each book in this series. Zam has landed in the frying pan this time, so much is revealed in this book it is hard to post a review without spoilers. All my favorites are back Zam, Maks, Lila, Shem. I think Zam becomes more badass with each book, but then she kind of has to since the villains keep getti ...more

I really love this series! This is the third one in and our favorite trio, Zam, Lila & Maks have quite a lot going on. Life isn't taking it easy on these three. There are some mysteries revealed. Yet still so many questions. The pride is changing in many ways. Along with the whole world on their side of the wall. They know they need to do something to save everyone. They just don't know who they can trust. Maybe not even themselves... I love how the author builds these characters and this wo ...more

Shannon is one of my favorite authors. She takes chances with her characters and not only sends you on a crazy adventure/action ride, she sends you on an emotional roller coaster as well. I love how the main character, Zam, has evolved. She has grown and you can see great things happening for her. The third book in the Desert Cursed series answered some questions but left us with even more questions. The biggest one being what is she going to do with that cliff hanger!!

The best one yet.

The Jinn’s Dominion is the 3rd book in the Desert Cursed Series. It’s just as heart stopping as the first 2 books, and that’s saying something. It’s so hard to not post spoilers. Zam and Lila are there for each other and build an even stronger bond. As for Maks, you’ll have to read to find out what happens to him.
The great story building and emotional punch that is Shannon’s style will draw you in, and leave you wanting more. While there is enough back story to read this as a s
The story continues! Zamira is mourning the loss of her brother, but she doesn't have much time to mourn. During a dream, she is approached by the Emperor himself. He makes her an offer that is hard to refuse. But the price that he demands in return is one that she is not willing to pay. She is tempted but knows she can't. The journey is on to get the Jinn's Dominion, but it won't be an easy journey. Danger is at every turn along the desert trails, but danger lurks closer than Zamira would like ...more

Good, but closure is lacking

The first 2 Desert Cursed books had great writing, action, a lot of feeling and intrigue. Most importantly, they had closure. Satisfying closure.
Book 3 held promise, but then the storyline and writing became geared towards a younger audience. There were no complexities. The heroine seemed to always be dithering about the boyfriend. And then we came to ..... no ending. The build-up of the story was about Maks with a sidenote about looking for the Bright Lion pride. The

I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Here it is:

First off, let me say (again if you saw my review for Dragon’s Ground) you must read this series in order. So if you haven’t read Witch’s Reign (book 1 in the Desert Cursed Series) and Dragon’s Ground (book 2), go do that now. I’ll wait . . .

If you have read it, you are ready to continue Zam’s adventure with Jinn’s Dominion. Zam, Lila and Maks continue their journey to save the Pride, bring down the wall, and save

As a writer, I love reading a book that pleasantly surprises me. Book 3 of the Desert Cursed Series does that a couple of times, and had me sweating over some of the possibilities of the characters backgrounds.
This book does slow down some from the previous two, but also does some wonderful catching up in the world that they live in, that really helps tie up the different strands left unwound previously. Zam continues to grow, to overcome, to own, and to curse like a drunken sailor that just pis

You ever need that saying rode hard and put up wet, that's pretty much how I feel after this book. And I don't mean that in a bad way. This was a seriously good book with tons of action, the whole spectrum of emotions and plenty of twists and turns. Seriously my mind is just blown and it might take me a little while to sort it out. And in case you are wondering this is definitely a series to be read in order. And So far every book had just reveled more of who these characters are and provide

Try as I might, to predict where the story takes me, I fail. Every time. In Zam, Shannon has created an amazing character: flawed deeply, perfect in her imperfections, and bound by a moral code only she understands.
As Zam tries to reconcile her grief over losing her brother, she realises her end goal is permanently changing, moving a little further from reach with each day that passes. Her mission has always been set in stone: find her pride and protect it. Along her journey, and through each o

Jinn’s Dominion is the third book in the Desert Cursed series, and it picks up right where book 2 left off. Zam is pushing forward in her quest to save her pride members from those who have captured them, including her jerk ex who is more trouble than he’s worth but for Zam you don’t leave your family behind, no matter how big of a butt they are. Along the way she learns just how much danger she is facing, not just from those trying to catch her but from the Emperor who is growing more powerful ...more

Racing toward the Final Showdown

The action of this novel picks up just where the last one left off. Heroine Zamira grieves for her brother and fellow shifter of the lion pride, Bryce. Merlin flits in and out , mostly out; her surrogate mother figure, the goddess Ishtar, is power-mad;Zam is having visions; and the battle against the Jinn leader, who has taken over his son, Maks, Zam’s beloved, is about to explode. All this comes to a head in this third novel of the series. Zamira and Lila, her dr

This has really been such a thrilling series so far! The FMC and her entourage are hilarious! Zam and Lila make the perfect team!

I will say that this book was not near as humorous as the last ones. In this book everything seems to be weighing heavy on our heroine! So frustrating these people trying to cut her down by saying how weak she is...makes not a lick of sense either considering the feats she has been through thus far and what she is still accomplishing. In this book we are off to save t
