Absolutely beautiful from start to finish.
Can't wait to read the next book in this series.
Lyla, a jinni, works as a belly dancer at Purgatory. She is unbound, and able to control a bit of power but nothing compared to when she is bound. Enter Oz, a magi that manages to find Lyla and bind her to do his bidding. His goal is to find a friend from his past that went missing after her family was killed. Lyla and Oz's journey together is packed with misadventures and things that go bump in the night. From bugbears to crazy vampire kids out to get them, they have a lot to handle when trying to find his friend. The characters in Jinn and Juice are quite diverse, there is a bit of everything you could want. Trolls, sirens, and will o' the wisp, oh my! The big bad villain, Kouros, was introduced fairly early in the book by telling Lyla's past. Kouros cursed/tricked a young human Lyla into becoming a jinni. Those trickster jinnis manage to wiggle around orders easily. This was a pretty enjoyable read, the plot is sound, the world is set well, and the characters are engaging. I'd recommend this book if you're looking for a jinni Urban Fantasy.
Nicole Peeler is awesome as usual! Her humor and writing style makes me a very happy fan! Her main characters are very relatable and usually make you want to be them! Read this book and her others or you're just plain crazy.
