Overview

A long, long time ago there lived a man. A Jinni, who had one wish. To know love. But the woman he thought he knew betrayed him and the love he thought they shared. Tortured for his crimes, he was cast out of Kingdom, stripped of all his powers, left to langour in pain and solitude, until eventually he becomes nothing but a ghost...

Paz Lopez is an artist with a dream. To buy a ridiculously large penthouse in the swankiest section of Chicago. But there's just one hitch, she has no man to share her dream with. A fateful visit to a carnival and Madam Pandora's tent sends Paz on a mission to find the love of her life before it's too late.

But the Madam forgot to tell Paz one very important detail... to meet him, Paz will have to die first.

Marie Hall has always had a dangerous fascination for creatures that go bump in the night. And mermaids. And of course fairies. Trolls. Unicorns. Shapeshifters. Vampires. Scottish brogues. Kilts. Beefy arms. Ummm... Bad boys! Especially the sexy ones.

On top of that she's a confirmed foodie, she nearly went to culinary school and then figured out she could save a ton of money if she just watched food shows religiously! She's a self-proclaimed master chef, certified deep sea dolphin trainer, finder of leprechaun's gold at the end of the rainbow, and rumor has it she keeps the Troll King locked away in her basement. All of which is untrue, however, she does have an incredibly active imagination and loves to share her crazy thoughts with the world!

Jinni’s Wish by Marie Hall Kingdom Series Book 4 Paz Lopez is an aspiring artist living in a small Chicago apartment. Hoping to make it to the penthouse suite. After a unique visit to an odd carnival and a fortune teller, she is told to go to Alaska to find, the one, her soul mate. She actually goes but things don’t quite work out so smoothly. Paz was looking for that one true love, her Todd. She has this idea because Todd is her brother’s gay partner and she envies their relationship.  Jinni is wasting away more each day. He is barely even a ghost anymore. When he finally meets his mate, he believes it has happened too late. The least he can do is tell her his story, maybe remove some of the burden of guilt he’s carried all these centuries. Jinni was once an extremely proud djinn genie. His pride cost him everything. Perhaps even his future happiness. This is a unique series where the author has built back stories from fairy tales. Jinni is one of the Bad Five, three of them have already found their mates, Mad Hatter, Gerard and Wolf. Their fairy godmother, Danika, just wanted to see her boys happy, even if they fought against it each step of the way. **Sexual content

This is the 4th book of the Kingdom series, and is more character-driven than the others in the series, providing an interesting wrap-up to the story of the boys with a softly drawn romance.   As with all of the books in this series, the author has pulled a female character from our time who is just slightly unsettled in her life, usually in terms of love.  Paz is no different, a talented artist with a dream of a love that mirrors the one her brother has found, she is thrust into a story beyond all logical bounds that tests her willingness to believe love will find her.  In beautifully detailed and poignant scenes, we travel the cosmos with Paz and Jinni as he uses the last of his life force to prove his love for her.  With a touch of fairy godmother interference, and more than a touch of Danika's kick-butt attitude, she demands Jinni fight for love, for Paz and for the future that he believes is undeserved.  Another winner in this series, the switch to a more character-driven plot suits the characters and their story perfectly.  Jinni has been a recurrent character in the other 3 stories, but always on the sidelines without a major part.  Providing a background for him, explaining his motivations and his oft bad attitude and snarky approach to the other boys in Danika's group of four, the story revealed in this book made all of his previous interactions make sense.  A great wrap-up to a series that is certain to please many adults who enjoy romance and a touch of fairy tale. I received an eBook copy from the author as a beta read, and was not compensated for this review. All conclusions are my own responsibility.

Marie Hall brings us the  4th book of the Kingdom series, this book seems to be more character-driven then all the others.  Paz is a talented artist and she dreams of finding her true love. Jinni is becoming more ghost everyday and has given up on love all together. This story will takes us through the Cosmos with Paz and Jenni as he uses the last of his life force to show how much he loves her. It will take a bit of Jinni's fairy godmothers interference to convince Jinni to fight for Paz. I am finally glad to get to read Jinni's story and understand just from the small parts he showed up in, in the other books why he is the way he is.   Marie Hall took Jinni's story and made it impossible to put down.

Jinni's wish brings a different vibe and flow from the previous books. This book truly makes you swoon with it's heart melting, sweet, tenderness and, the mix of a little melancholy. Jinni doesn't have much longer as each day he slips away a bit more. He is barely a ghost anymore and needs to find his mate. When he finally does, all seems too late. So, Jinni decides, at least he can tell her his story and rid some of his inner guilt. Paz is and artist looking for her one true love, her Todd. Her brother and his significant other Todd want nothing but her happiness and drag her to a carnival fortune teller. The fortune teller tells her she must go to Alaska before it is too late to find the one she seeks. Paz must then face tragedy head on to even have the chance to meet her soul mate. This book has everything you need for a tragic love story. A fairy tale hell bent on making the match, a meddling sibling, and an unknown ending leaving you reaching for hope that seems to be slipping out if grasp. Marie Hall shows us all the future and our dreams of happiness are ours to make, with a little magic, and some self forgiveness we can have everything we ever wanted, maybe even a happily ever after.

*Written by Lizzie Andrews@TheGuiltyKitty* Now most girls love the stereotypical bad boy featured in these stories. I am no different! I always have a soft spot for them; especially the redeemable bad boy turned a little bit good. After all, we don’t want them totally good, it would defeat the purpose of us loving the bad boys, right? The Kingdom series gives us these delectable bad boys in the form of old fairy tales. I can only say this about these stories: Oh, please can we have some more? Marie Hall is an incredibly gifted writer. She is able to turn old fairy tales we heard as children into delectable, toe curling, completely engaging fairy tales for adults. Ones where true love means everything and sometimes it is the only thing to redeem the characters we have only seen as villains. Just like other books, sometimes it is only a perception that exists, as only one side of the story is revealed to the readers. Marie Hall makes these ‘villains’ totally likeable and completely intriguing. She puts them in settings that are incredibly descriptive, making you feel like you are standing in the middle of the story watching it happen, not reading about it in a book. After all, what good is reading if it doesn’t transport you somewhere else? The cover instantly draws in the reader. That gorgeous half-naked man on the cover is definitely an eye catcher. It instantly makes you think all sorts of bad thoughts … in a good way. A VERY good way. I’ll admit that the Jinni’s lamp on the cover is a bit intriguing. It makes you think of fairy tales, far away places and magic carpet rides. If you like books that make you feel the love of the characters, look no farther then ‘Jinni’s Wish’. Travel among the stars and float above the sands of East Kingdom to reach a truly imaginative love story that connects with the reader on a spiritual level. Feel the cosmic pull of Jinni, a loveable character whose magic is running out and the free spirited nature of Paz, an artist who is as peaceful as her name implies, but looking for a connection to surpass others in the form of her soul mate. Let’s be honest, some of the best parts of love stories can be the parts where you are looking over your shoulder to make sure no one else is reading along with you. However, it is refreshing once in awhile to see characters connect on a spiritual level first. One where you can almost see shimmering silver threads connecting one soul to another. The love between Jinni and Paz possesses that quality. ‘Jinni’s Wish’ starts in Chicago at the home of the artist, Paz Lopez. Who, after having her fortune told at a rather creepy carnival, jumps on a plane to Alaska. Meeting Jinni on that flight, she feels an instant connection to him, a magnetic spark. As the plane crashes down, he promises her he will be there when she wakes up. Hovering between life and death, she forms a relationship with Jinni, the djinn that once belonged to King Abdullah of the East Kingdom. While Jinni describes his home to Paz, prepare to be transported into East Kingdom, a uniquely beautiful place. One where the typical landscape gives way to the rugged sands of the desert and palm trees billowing in the wind. As he narrates his story to Paz, she paints it in amazingly vivid detail. Showing him what he only remembers, in an incredibly life like way that only a true artist can capture. Adding to that magical fairy tale touch, this story takes place on a different plane of existence, one that exists between life and death. The only thing Paz knows in this existence is that the light is warm and she is so cold. However, when Jinni is there she feels the warmth that radiates from him. Jinni has an enveloping sadness about him and an anger that simmers just below the surface. Sometimes it is heart wrenching to read about through the course of the story. As he narrates,  we learn the reasons why these feelings exist and why he hasn’t overcome them yet. In order to save each other, they need to take a chance and learn to love openly. A love pure enough to wipe away old scars, to allow natural magic a way in. Can Paz save Jinni before it is too late? Can Jinni give Paz that all consuming love she is looking for? Take a chance on Jinni’s Wish’, you won’t regret picking up this book. Learn to dance on the stars like Paz, or learn to trust like Jinni. It is most definitely worth the journey. Stumble into the Kingdom and learn how amazing fantasy romance can be. I think Oscar Wilde said it best, “If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use in reading it at all”.
