Waiting on Wednesday {40}



Jill @ Breaking the Spine hosts this weekly meme where we can share a book that we are so excited for and are anxiously awaiting their upcoming release!


This week my WoW pick is...

Exquisite Captive (Dark Caravan Cycle #1) by Heather Demetrios
Release Date ~ October 7, 2014


Goodreads Description:
Forced to obey her master.
Compelled to help her enemy.
Determined to free herself. 

Nalia is a jinni of tremendous ancient power, the only survivor of a coup that killed nearly everyone she loved. Stuffed into a bottle and sold by a slave trader, she’s now in hiding on the dark caravan, the lucrative jinni slave trade between Arjinna and Earth, where jinn are forced to grant wishes and obey their human masters’ every command. She’d give almost anything to be free of the golden shackles that bind her to Malek, her handsome, cruel master, and his lavish Hollywood lifestyle.

Enter Raif, the enigmatic leader of Arjinna’s revolution and Nalia’s sworn enemy. He promises to free Nalia from her master so that she can return to her ravaged homeland and free her imprisoned brother—all for an unbearably high price. Nalia’s not sure she can trust him, but Raif’s her only hope of escape. With her enemies on the hunt, Earth has become more perilous than ever for Nalia. There’s just one catch: for Raif’s unbinding magic to work, Nalia must gain possession of her bottle…and convince the dangerously persuasive Malek that she truly loves him. Battling a dark past and harboring a terrible secret, Nalia soon realizes her freedom may come at a price too terrible to pay: but how far is she willing to go for it?

Inspired by Arabian Nights, EXQUISITE CAPTIVE brings to life a deliciously seductive world where a wish can be a curse and shadows are sometimes safer than the light.

Um, after reading that description I feel like no explanation is required to show why I NEED this book.

But if you will:
1) JINNI: I've been waiting for this to come around in YA and I think it finally has!
2) Arabian Nights: yep, this inspired Exquisite Captive which means this will hopefully be a different type of fantasy book than I'm used to reading!
3) Epic romance: more swoons in my life, please!
4) Revolution: How much do I love a story with a revolution taking place? A LOT.

Sign me up, folks.

Great pick! I don't think I've read any YA about a jinni before. This sounds like it's going to be epic - both romance and fantasy wise.

My WOW
