MaryJanice Davidson meets Charlaine Harris in this fabulous new urban fantasy from Jane True author Nicole Peeler.
Cursed to be a jinni for a thousand years, Leila nears the end of her servitude - only to be bound once again against her will. Will she risk all to be human?
Born in ancient Persia, Leila turned to her house Jinni, Kouros, for help escaping an arranged marriage. Kouros did make it impossible for her to marry - by cursing Leila to live a thousand years as a Jinni herself.
If she can remain unBound, Leila's curse will soon be over. But Ozan Sawyer, a Magi with the ability to See, Call, and Bind jinn has other plans.
Ozan needs Leila to help him penetrate Pittsburgh's steel-soaked magic, in order to find a missing girl with her own mysterious connection to Kouros. Unfortunately for Leila, becoming Bound to Oz may risk more than just her chance to be human once more - it could risk her very soul . . .
Jinn and Juice is the first in a new series by fantasy writer Nicole Peeler, set in a world of immortal curses, powerful jinni and belly dancing.
Peeler has done it again! Jinn & Juice is a delightful read filled with action, humor, heart, and a heroine to cheer for - Kevin Hearne, author of HOUNDED
Nicole Peeler is a master at weaving humor and romance together to create addictive stories and characters! - Richelle Mead
Peeler is perfect. Jinn and Juice is her best urban fantasy yet with vibrant characters that leap off the page fully formed from the first line. Fast-paced, rowdy, smart, irresistible, and tender, there's just no one who hits the urban fantasy marks as well as Peeler. Buy this book! Read it! Love it! - Kat Richardson, author of the Greywalker novels
Snarky, sexy! Beautifully descriptive and painstakingly plotted. Lyla is a smart, sly and just this side of scary. Peeler's world-building is clever and complete with every possible fairy folk character! The other-worldly seems familiar and glamorous all at the same time. And I learned how to curse in a few new languages, so it was educational! - Molly Harper, author of NICE GIRLS DON'T HAVE FANGS
