With one wish she could change it all, but these djinn don’t grant wishes.
Shapeshifting djinn Safiyya is licking her wounds after an unfortunate accident—caused by the woman who was once her best friend—traps her in the form of an ocelot. So she is less than thrilled when that very friend, Ghadir, turns up on her doorstep, asking for Safiyya’s help to investigate strange occurrences in the area’s magic. But when they find a young girl—an illegally-created genie—at the center of the disturbances, Safiyya knows she can’t just turn tail and run.
Safiyya is thrown into turmoil as she is confronted not only with the aftermath of her accident but also with Ghadir’s own issues, amplified by the discovery of a genie. And when an evil djinn shows up, pursuing the girl, what started as a simple investigation turns to something much more sinister. Can they put aside their differences long enough to save the girl?
Or will they fall before they can warn the entire Djinn Realm of their greatest enemy yet?

Sometimes we put ourselves in the bottle…
Once upon a time, Janan was human. Now, she’s genie—a human-turned-djinn—and on the run with a new found family from the evil djinn who turned her. She may be filled with the magic of the djinn, but she fits nowhere, a misfit in two worlds. And now he has found her, threatening to rip away everyone she loves all over again.
Laurelin dreams of being the next great chemist—if she can only get into the right program. But it seems like everything she touches fails until she finds a crystal bottle and that draws her into a world she never could have even dreamed: the lush, deadly, and wartorn world of the djinn.
Now, Janan must learn the magic she has long feared, along with her true nature, and Laurelin must find her place in a world where humans are at the bottom of the food chain. For the evil djinn’s plans for domination are bigger than anyone could have imagined, and it may just be up to them to stop his waves of death and dark magic before it sweeps them all away.
This Cursed Flame is the wished-for first YA contemporary fantasy novel in the This Curse series. If you like imaginative fantasy, unlikely companions, and fast-paced action, then you’ll love this enchanting book.
