Marni (wonderwmn999) | 3578 comments The group has been approached by author Katharina Gerlach for a Read 4 Review of her book Amadi, the Phoenix, the Sphinx, and the Djinn by Katharina Gerlach . Amadi, the Phoenix, the Sphinx, and the Djinn (Amadi #1-3). The deadline for all reviewers of this trilogy is 11:59pm EST on April 9th. If you get it and feel you will need an extra week, you must contact me no later than April 2nd.

Amadi realizes how much she hates being a girl when her half-sister is unwillingly engaged to an elderly gold-smith. She manages to become apprenticed to a thief where she lives as a boy more often than not. But when her Helping Hand is murdered, her oath of revenge lands her smack dab in the path of an assassin hired to kill her and a jackal-headed god with the same purpose. Now, her only defense is the threadbare tunic of a young man and her training as a thief.

The author will be giving out 20 copies in ePub and mobi formats via email. To request, please post your email address AND the format you would like. It is your responsibility to check for the book and download it. It is also your responsibility to contact me immediately if you do not receive the book or have a problem. In exchange for the free book, the author requests an honest review of her book not just on Goodreads, but also on other site you use, ie B&N, Amazon, etc.

Anyone in our group can sign up for this. Reviews are required to be posted on Goodreads. Once you are finished with your review and have posted it on Goodreads, you are REQUIRED to post your Goodreads link to it on this thread.

Even though this book is being gifted to you please do not share it with anyone. It is unethical, disrespectful and illegal to share books provided to you for reviews.

Further Info from the group, not the author: If you do not complete the e-book within the time given, and you do not post your link on this thread or I do not hear from you stating that you intend to finish and review the book, you will not be allowed to participate in future Read 4 Review events. This is to prevent people from getting complimentary books over and over without fulfilling their obligation.

Do not message me nor the author requesting the book. All info is to be posted here. This for the ease of the author and the mods and fairness to all. If you do not wish to share your email publicly, please do not request.

If there are any other authors looking to do this with our group, please message me. You MUST be willing to provide copies, free of charge, to the reviewers.

REVIEWERS: PLEASE read the topic titled "Reviewers." All the rules are listed under there. We will not allow any excuses of "I didn't know" because the rules are listed and if you have any questions you can always message me.
