The Djinn Book 1
Me: Welcome Leela! Make yourself comfortable.
Leela: I always do, thank you.
Me: Please introduce yourself so everyone knows who you are:
Leela: My name is Leela and I am Djinn. *eyes glow green*
Me: Should people be afraid of you?
Leela: Only if they mean me harm or wish to take possession of me. So for most humans? Yes, fear me.
Me: I don’t think most humans mean you harm.
Leela: *laughs* So naïve.
Me: *shifts uncomfortably* Okay then, what would you do if someone tried to trap you and make you grant wishes?
Leela: Hmm…there are so many wonderful options. Taj likes turning humans into snakes and other creatures. Mira tends to blow things up. I suppose I’m not as messy, so I might trap them instead or just kill them. It depends on my mood.
Me: Consider us warned. What do you want out of life, Leela?
Leela: I want to be left alone as a free Djinni.
Me: Sounds simple enough. But alone?
Leela: If there is such a thing as real love, I’d be happy to experience it, but I doubt its existance. I loved once. That’s what got me into this mess.
Me: I may not be a magical genie—
Me: Right. I may not be a magical Djinni, but I am an author and I’m going to promise you something. You may go through a LOT, but you will be satisfied with the ending of The Binding Stone. And whoever reads it will enjoy the journey with you.
Leela: If I don’t get my Happily Ever After I will come back and imprison you in a diamond.
Leela: *eyes glow*
Me: HEA it is!
"I thoroughly enjoyed THE BINDING STONE (The Djinn Book 1) by Lizzy Gayle. What a fun, fast-paced, page-turner of a book! Leela and Jered are compelling main characters, and the supporting cast of friends, allies, and enemies keeps the story fresh and interesting. The flashbacks to Leela's long and difficult past perfectly compliment the main storyline. I can't wait for Book 2!" -- Lisa Edmonds, Best-Selling Urban Fantasy Author of the Alice Worth Series
"A promising paranormal romance debut with intricate backstory, a fun cast of characters, and a trio of Djinn who’ll have you rooting for their freedom to pursue true happily ever after's. A magical gem that will have readers wishing for the next in the series." -- Luna Joya, Award-Winning Author of The Legacy Series
