    Jewel is a djinn (aka genie) that¿s been locked up in her lamp f

    Jewel is a djinn (aka genie) that’s been locked up in her lamp for 57 years. Freed by Tam, a man who has plenty of problems already, she becomes part of war between rival demon factions. Tam doesn’t want the perks of djinn mastery; he just wants to be alive again, really alive. You see Tam suffers the misfortune of having already died but is tied to his rotting body as part of a bargain made with a demon. He can regenerate for a brief while if he can feel enough sensation to get his nerve endings tingling, but, well, when you’re dead, that’s not as easy as it may sound. He doesn’t want to be responsible for Jewel, but he can’t fight his growing attraction for her. Throw in a half-human/half-fae Gavain who is in love with Tam and will do anything to win him and things are bound to get complicated. 

    While the story line was overall ok, the steamy parts with a guy who is literally falling apart/decaying in the process were pretty gross. I understand the “not judging a book by its cover” and “seeing the person inside” stuff, got it, but this was a bit much. I made my way through those scenes very quickly trying to skip over the very disturbing parts. The end was pretty anticlimactic.

    I loved this book, it is gritty, lol okay disgusting in some of its graphic details of Tam’s zombieness---yeah I just made that word up. I loved Jewel’s love of life, her need to grasp every experience simply for the sensation of the living the experience.

    Before I finished the third chapter I told a friend she had to read it. I loved the humor, the painful need to belong experienced by Tam’s sidekick the pain and grieving of a father for his lost child. This book has it all and does it all so well!

    The fifth book in the Shadowfae Chronicles is a story full of em

    The fifth book in the Shadowfae Chronicles is a story full of emotional angst, action, betrayals, vengeance, and romance.
    Tam is a zombie that wants revenge on the people that murdered him and his family. Jewel is a djinni that just wants to keep her newfound freedom.  All their plans go out the window when the two meet.  The chemistry between the two is strong, but Tam doesn’t want to give in.  He has secrets that Jewel’s not going to like. Tam and his friend are being used against each other by two demons competing over territory and the demon that comes out on top gets Jewel.
    The plot of the story is a good one, with lots of interesting characters and an engaging world.  Unfortunately for me, this book didn’t work out for me.  The author has a great imagination and she describes her world and her characters very vividly, which is a good thing.  She makes a disclaimer at the beginning that if you are grossed out about getting up close and personal with corpses, this may not be the book for you.   I would have been fine with it, but to me she repeatedly over described Tam’s condition.  Also, the way the dialogue see-sawed between the characters seemed like I was flipping through other peoples diaries and reading journal entries.  That is not to say that another reader won’t like the book.  The author has created a unique paranormal world with great characters.    
    I was provided this book by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    A good read
    I give it a 3.5 rating
    Jewel is a Djinni and when her master dies, she finally has her freedom, but not for long. Tam is living dead that was cursed by a demon and tormented by undead feelings. Tam is seeking revenge for his family that was murdered and Jewel happens to stumble into Tam seeking revenge. Jewel was having conflicted feelings for Tam, Tam was trying to avoid anything to do with Jewel. The demon master orders Tam to get Jewel and bring her to him. Tam try's to resist Jewel but their chemistry can't be avoided.
