Waiting on Wednesday 10/08/14

“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that lets us feature upcoming releases that we can’t wait to get our hands on!

Mogsy’s Pick:

Jinn and Juice by Nicole Peeler: November 25, 2014 (Orbit)

A few weeks ago, Orbit posted a reveal/launch of their spring to summer 2015 covers, and there’s a lot of good stuff there. Presumably some of them are paperback releases because there are some titles there we’ve already seen before. This is one I must have missed the first time around, because apparently it’s slated to be out at the end of this November. I can’t say I’ve read a lot of urban fantasy featuring Djinn/Jinni/Genies, so this one automatically captured my attention. The fuchsia cover, the “Don’t rub me the wrong way” tagline and belly dancing…heck, I find myself intrigued, in spite of myself.

Jinn and Juice“Cursed to be a jinni for a thousand years, Leila nears the end of her servitude—only to be bound once again against her will. Will she risk all to be human?

Born in ancient Persia, Leila turned to her house Jinni, Kouros, for help escaping an arranged marriage. Kouros did make it impossible for her to marry—by cursing Leila to live a thousand years as a Jinni herself.

If she can remain unBound, Leila’s curse will soon be over. But Ozan Sawyer, a Magi with the ability to See, Call, and Bind jinn has other plans. Oz needs Leila to help him penetrate Pittsburgh’s steel-soaked magic, a juice potent but poisonous to supernatural creatures, in order to find a missing girl with her own mysterious connection to Kouros. Unfortunately for Leila, becoming Bound to Oz may risk more than just her chance to be human once more—it could risk her very soul…

Jinn and Juice is the first in a new series by fantasy writer, Nicole Peeler, set in a world of immortal curses, powerful jinni and belly dancing.”

  1. I have added this to my paper-list of books I want to read. This is something I wouldnt normally choose to read, but I dunno perhaps the Djinn is compelling me to do so.

  2. Wow, this cover! It’s so pretty I just want to stare at it all day. I love the juxtaposition of the jinni and the city, this is going to be fun. Just added it to my list:-)

  3. I’ve heard really good things about Nicole Peeler’s Jane True series, so I definitely want to pick this one up! I’ll definitely be reading it as an ebook though…no one needs to see me carting a book with that cover around at work. 😉
