Circle of Jinn (Becoming Jinn #2)

by Lori Goldstein

Publisher: Feiwel and Friends

Release Date: May 17th 2016
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy, Mythology


Being Jinn is Azra’s new reality. As she grants wishes under the watchful eye of the Afrit council, she remains torn between her two worlds—human and Jinn. Soon, secrets spill. Zars are broken. Humans become pawns. And rumors of an uprising become real as the Afrit’s reach extends beyond the underground world of Janna.

Straddling the line becomes impossible. Aware of her unique abilities, Azra must not just face but embrace her destiny. But when the role she must play and those she must protect expand to include a circle of Jinn greater than her own, Azra will be forced to risk everything. A risk that means there’s everything to lose, and at the same time, everything to gain—for herself and her entire Jinn race.

In this dramatic sequel to Becoming Jinn, Azra’s story comes to a heartfelt and thrilling conclusion.

Top Five of the Jinn World

1. Meal: Chicken tagine with tomatoes and sweet caramelized onions, Azra’s favorite, made by her mom without magic.

2. Dessert: Mint chocolate chip ice cream, Azra’s favorite (and mine too!).

3. Location: The beach, the place Azra feels the most at ease and safe.

4. Dress: Kaftans, a favorite of Azra’s mom and the other Jinn mothers.

5. Spell: One that blocks sound comes in handy in Circle of Jinn

Bonus: Friend: A tie between Henry and Laila, both intensely loyal and supportive of Azra and also not afraid to call Azra out when she screws up—the truest of friend!
