Waiting on The Forbidden Wish by Jessica Khoury

Zahra is the most powerful Jinni of all. He is a boy from the streets. Their love will shake the world…

Zahra finds herself suspended between danger and desire as time unravels and enemies close in, in this dazzling retelling of Arabian Nights from acclaimed author Jessica Khoury.

The Forbidden Wish by Jessica Khoury

I love fantasy. I love timeless stories. I love new perspectives.

I’m pretty sure The Forbidden Wish is a perfect fit for me.

Though Aladdin retellings are now something of a trend, I first heard of The Forgotten Wish at a sci-fi author book signing over a year ago. It was the first of its kind I’d been exposed to, and I’m hoping it will be the first I read.

The Forbidden Wish
will be released on February 23, 2016 from Razorbill.

If you want to see some glorious beauty, visit Jessica Khoury’s pinterest page for The Forbidden Wish. It is absolutely gorgeous.

    I still need to read her other works! But I am digging all these Arabian nights retellings. Have you had a chance to read The Wrath and the Dawn? I gobbled it up!

    Sandy! *tackle hug*

    I haven’t read The Wrath and The Dawn, but it sounds fascinating. The summary makes it sound like it has to do with Stockholm Syndrome. Does it?

    it could fall into that territory depending on the type of reader you are but I feel like it didn’t because shazi–the mc–is so headstrong.
