There was nothing that could have prepared me for Dragon’s Ground. And I thought that nothing could be worse than what I faced there.

Just my black cat bad luck, the world is set to prove me wrong.

South lies the Jinn’s Dominion and within it the members of my Pride who need my help. The further south we go, the more danger comes not only from outside our group but from within.

Ishtar’s new hunters.
Marsurm leader of the Jinn.
And the Emperor himself.

All three want something from me. All three claim they can give me the world on a silver platter, to give me my deepest desires.

Color me cautious, but I think all three are lying. Or so it seems until I reach the Jinn’s Dominion and discover the truth…

About who I really am.
And what that means for my fate and the fate of those I love.

Jinn’s Dominion swept me away. We are pulled right into the story and Zamira’s journey to rescue her Pride.

We have heartbreak, tears, non-stop action, and adventure. The world building continues and we learn things that put is on an emotional roller coaster ride, will surprise use, and put things into context.

Lila is a fabulous secondary character. She adds humor when things are looking down, she keeps it positive and try’s to lighting up the mood. She always makes me laugh. Zam is a spitfire. She goes above and beyond for those she loves and she never gives up. I just love her and seeing her character grow, become more confident, take on things she never thought she would, and lose things she wanted to hold dear. It’s a battle for her at every turn, yet she still fights.

I had a blast reading Jinn’s Dominion. I love where things are going and I love the non-stop action. I can’t wait for the next installment to arrive. Urban Fantasy fans will throughly enjoy this series. It’s got unique characters, a verity of myths and legends, a stock pill of supernaturals, and a kick-ass heroine.

**Note: The series does need to be read in order.

Rated: 4 Stars
