Exquisite Captive (Dark Caravan Cycle #1) by Heather Demetrios (review)
This book takes off running from the beginning, introducing a back-story of war and tragedy, an internally powerful heroine, and a creative universe with jinni (wish granting Arabian mythological creatures.). What is the conflict? Nalia the last of her kind, the royalty of Arjinna, is enslaved in the slave trade of sorts in the human world. What does she want? Freedom. How is she going to get it? Steeling the bottle and working with one of her worst enemies.
Nalia is such a lovable and three dimensional heroine. This book also consists of totally terrifying despicable villains like the monster Ramon, conflicting love interests, and magic. Heads up, there is a slight cliff hanger ending to induce the need to read the next book in the series. I give it four stars!
