The Forbidden Wish Cover Image

Published: Razorbill - January 24th, 2017

The Forbidden Wish is an Aladdin retelling, but in this version it is the Jinni using Aladdin, not the other way around. She has waited five hundred years to escape the desert she was abandoned in and losing this opportunity isn’t an option. It becomes harder and harder for her to lie to him though as she falls in love with him, a forbidden thing since the Jinni and humans have been at war for centuries and if anyone in the palace discovers her true nature both she and Aladdin would lose their heads. Filled with romance, magic, and some pretty great battle scenes, The Forbidden Wish is a well-crafted tale that captures your heart as you root for these characters all the way to the finish line. -- Constance
