About the Book
When magic meets destiny, her fate hangs in the balance…
In a post-apocalyptic world ravaged by a djinn-created plague known as the Heat, Isla Dunbar, a survivor with untapped magical talents, finds herself at a crossroads. As her community in Los Alamos considers expanding beyond Nee Mexico, Isla, grappling with her family’s lost magical heritage, decides to stay behind, unaware that her choice will alter her life forever.
In the shadows, Aamir al-Qadir, the eldest of three djinn brothers and a ruthless reaver, plots to halt human expansion. His plan? Kidnap a Los Alamos resident to learn the secrets of the devices designed to block djinn powers. Fate throws Isla into his path, sparking a chain of events that will challenge both their worlds.
Captured and taken to a remote house in Red River, Isla awakens to her captor’s menacing presence. Aamir’s intentions are clear: extract information about Los Alamos at any cost. But an unexpected revelation about Isla’s latent powers complicates his plans, hinting at a mysterious djinn lineage. As Aamir grapples with his unexpected attraction to Isla, she vows to escape, her determination fueled by a newfound strength she doesn’t fully understand.
Back in Los Alamos, a frantic search ensues. Lindsay and Miles Odekirk, along with the town’s council, must navigate a delicate alliance with the djinn to rescue Isla. Meanwhile, Isla’s captivity becomes a journey of self-discovery and awakening, forcing her to confront her heritage and the potential of her powers.
As Isla and Aamir’s paths intertwine, they must make choices that will redefine the fragile balance between humans and djinn. In a world where trust is scarce and alliances are fleeting, will they find a way to bridge their worlds…or will their differences forever keep them apart?
