Look at my gorgeous King of the Djinn! I’m so excited to finally be sharing this cover with you! My designer UNDERSTOOD the assignment, I squealed like a demented dolphin when I first saw it.
To give you a quick update, I’m about half way through drafting this one, and it’s such a delight to be writing in this world again after two years. It was always a comfort series for me and I feel like it’s the perfect way to start a fresh New Year.
I am hoping to release this one in May, but I will put a pre-order up when I know for sure. I already have ‘Rise of the Firebird’ coming to you in March, so May feels like a good time. It will give me plenty of time to get it finished and through all the edits.
Here is a blurb to get you excited. It’s SUCH a fun story so far, and even though these are all written as stand alones, we are seeing a lot of familiar faces from book one including Arkon and Stella.
Things are finally going right for Ezra. She’s living in Florence, and her skill with rare sigil magic is unbeatable. Everything was going fine…right up until a crazy cabal of magicians decide to drag her back to Venice. Not only is her new captors determined to sell golem soldiers to the Varangians, they want Ezra’s magic to make it happen.
To save herself, Ezra will have to swallow her own prejudices and go to the one person in Venice that could help her; The Djinn King of Wands, Zahir Matani.
Zahir knows how to get the most from a deal. Sure, he’ll help Ezra, but only once she’s exposed the Republic’s enemies and fulfilled the small caveat that she has to spend three nights with the djinn king at a time and place of his choosing.
It’s better to make a deal with the Devil than a djinn, and Ezra has never met a man as ruthless as Zahir. He might be willing to save her from her captors, but who is going to save her from him?
Eeek! I can’t wait to share all of these shenanigans with you. Also, please make sure you are subscribed to this blog if you want exclusive content in the next few months. I’m going to be releasing some sneaky chapters because we all need some Zahir in our lives.
