Wish ~ The Awakening by Laura Eno

Most residents of Pine Hill shy away from seventeen-year-old Lelah without knowing why. It's the Djinn magic surging through her blood. She lives in a world where wishes are really curses, dark power meant to twist and deceive in unimaginable ways.
When a fit of temper exposes Lelah for what she really is, she must flee to a sanctuary only whispered about, before her family is exposed and enslaved by their ancient enemy. What she discovers is a treacherous path filled with power, lies, and betrayal – a path that's destined to ensnare her and destroy a civilization.



Excerpt:

 "If the djinn exposed should happen to be me, I hope you’ll forgive my actions, even though I should be cursed. Whatever destruction I bring about, it won’t be my intention. I will look you in the eye before I kill you, but your death will be at my master’s command. I would weep along with you, if I could.
If only weeping were allowed..."


                Here is where you want to be today. Go say "Hello" to Laura and bring your party hat. Laura knows how to throw a partaaayyyy!


About the Author





Laura Eno lives in Florida with a very tolerant husband, three skulking cats and two absurdly happy dogs. After spending years immersed in college but never figuring out what she wanted to be when she grew up, she now writes novels late at night with the help of muses from the underworld. And, no, she still hasn't grown up but that's okay.

Laura Eno, that's exactly what we love about you!!!!!
