A master with nothing to lose.
A revolutionary with everything to gain.
When Nalia arrives in Morocco to fulfil Malek's third and final wish she's not expecting it to be easy. Though Nalia is free from the shackles that once bound her to Malek as his slave, she's in more danger than ever before.
Meanwhile, Malek's past returns with a vengeance as he confronts the darkness within himself, and Raif must decide what's more important: his love for Nalia, or his devotion to the cause of Arjinnan freedom.
Set upon by powerful forces that threaten to break her, Nalia encounters unexpected allies and discovers that her survival depends on the very things she thought made her weak. From the souks of Marrakech to the dunes of the Sahara, The Arabian Nights come to life in this dazzling second installment of the Dark Passage Cycle.
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
“Solomon’s sigil was closer than ever and once it was on his finger, Nalia – and every Jinni that ever stepped foot on Earth – would be under his control.”
This was a YA fantasy story featuring jinn.
I actually felt quite sorry for Malek in this story, as it was clear how much he loved Nalia, whilst she had no similar feelings for him at all. Nalia was an okay character but I did wonder how long she could keep the secret about killing Raif’s best friend from him.
The storyline in this was about locating a ring which would give the wearer power over all the jinn, and there were several other storylines happening too, I did once again get quite confused though, and struggled to follow what was going on. We also had the love triangle between Malek, Nalia, and Raif popping up again, although it seemed pretty clear that Nalia only had feelings for Raif.
The ending to this was okay, but I was really quite lost by that point. I don’t think I’ll be reading the next book in this series as I find them too hard to follow.
