FEAR THE HEAT...

When eighteen year old Ari Johnson is transported from her bedroom into the chilling realm of Mount Qaf - home to the terrifying and mercurial Jinn - she learns a truth that rocks her very world. Suddenly her anxiety over college and her broken friendship with Charlie seem like small change compared to the war she now finds herself stuck in the middle of. Her unease isn't lessened any by the hot guardian, Jai, who won't stop following her around everywhere - a Jinn whose loyalty Ari hates to question but must. She has no idea who she can trust.

When the truth burns through her life in its determination to turn it to ashes, Ari will have to battle with ancient deadly creatures, epic family drama and heart-wrenching romantic entanglements.

I felt it had a great story line. I loved the characters. It was awesome. I personally like Jai more than Charlie but i feel both are important in the book...I want the fool series. XD -MB

Smokeless Fire is a book that has decided to go against the flow of vampires and werewolves and go into the less well-known subject of the Jinn. It was wonderful to read about something different and as Ari learnt about who and what she was, so I learned about the Jinn too. Jai is a cracking character who already has so much substance to him but will also continue to grow. He has a dry, sharp wit and proves that he is capable in a crisis.  Charlie is a character that I felt sorry for to start with and understood how Ari would stand by him but by the end, he was annoying me and I completely agree with Jai's feelings regarding him. Ari is the main female, caught in a triangle with who she feels she loves because of their history together and who she would like to find out if she a future with. She also has to find a way to deal with all she learns about herself and the Jinn. A good storyline, told with an even pace and good characters to build upon. Well worth the read and the rest of the series have been placed on my wishlist.

This was an exciting excursion into the myth of Jinn. It was original and contains a vast world to dabble in. There are many kinds of Jinn existing at both ends of the spectrum and they have their own hierarchy. This is where all the fun originates as poor Ari is thrown for a loop when she discovers her heritage, and finds herself as nothing but a coveted tool in a major power struggle. The characters are where I had some trouble though. Don’t get me wrong, I think they’re well developed and I relate to Ari, but some of the people around her made me want to scream. Her dad is just oblivious, her friends a bit superficial, and her uncle ambiguous. The crown for most frustrating though, goes to Jai and Charlie, and even to Ari herself when it comes to them. I suppose the point of a love triangle is to be heartbreakingly frustrating, so in that regard mission accomplished! Jai is annoyingly stubborn, and Charlie is…I don’t even know where to start with him, except to agree with Jai that Ari’s “loyalty is exhausting.” Beyond the characters, I like that we get to spend some time just following Ari in her everyday life as it changes around her and she adjusts to all the new information and happenings. However, the final confrontations felt a little anticlimactic, and the romance in the ending was disappointingly predictable. Despite that, the world and the people make me want to read on as book 2 awaits and book 3 has just recently been released!
