Title: Circle of Jinn (Becoming Jinn #2)
Author: Lori Goldstein
Synopsis: Being Jinn is Azra’s new reality. As she grants wishes under the watchful eye of the Afrit council, she remains torn between her two worlds—human and Jinn. Soon, secrets spill. Zars are broken. Humans become pawns. And rumors of an uprising become real as the Afrit’s reach extends beyond the underground world of Janna.
Straddling the line becomes impossible. Aware of her unique abilities, Azra must not just face but embrace her destiny. But when the role she must play and those she must protect expand to include a circle of Jinn greater than her own, Azra will be forced to risk everything. A risk that means there’s everything to lose, and at the same time, everything to gain—for herself and her entire Jinn race.
Huge thank you to the publisher for sending me a copy of this for review!
This is the perfect conclusion to the Jinn duology. If you were a fan of the first book then you’ll enjoy this one! This story picks up where the first book left off, and you can see how Goldstein has grown as a writer. The writing is very clean and she has a very strong YA voice. I really enjoyed how much Azra and her Zar sister’s have grown in this book too.
I actually ended up enjoying this book even more than the first one. Azra has a lot of hard choices to make and she’s much smarter about the things that she does. She also makes new friends and finds out a lot of secrets. There are some sad parts in this that really got to me, and the end was very heartwarming.
Overall I really enjoyed these books and I can’t wait to see what Goldstein write’s next!
