bookshelves: fantasy, romance

The pacing is a little choppy, a bit draggy in places, and the very nonhuman jinn are very relatably human in their characterization...

Other than that, I really liked this book. An interesting twist on the old story of Aladdin and the Genie of the Ring smashed together with the story of Aladdin and the Genie of the Lamp, and a strong implication of adventures to come, whether or not they're written down.
