Waiting on Wednesday (30)

A jinni. A princess. And the wish that changes everything. . . .

Najwa is a jinni, training to be a spy in the war against the humans. Zayele is a human on her way to marry a prince of Baghdad—which she’ll do anything to avoid. So she captures Najwa and makes a wish. With a rush of smoke and fire, they fall apart and re-form—as each other. A jinni and a human, trading lives. Both girls must play their parts among enemies who would kill them if the deception were ever discovered—enemies including the young men Najwa and Zayele are just discovering they might love.

War.  Magic.  Romance.  And blurbed by Tamora Pierce.  Truly, there's nothing more that needs saying.  The impression I get from this book is similar to that I got of Vessel by Sarah Beth Durst, which I freaking loved.  And it's coming out this month on the 22nd.  Which means that my library had better get its act together and have this ready for me at least by the time I go back to school.  If it wishes to continue providing books for the masses...

What are you waiting for?
