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.

In this dramatic sequel to Becoming Jinn, Azra’s story comes to a heartfelt and thrilling conclusion.


FFBC Blog Tour: Top 5 Things I Learned Writing a Sequel
1. You think you will remember everyone’s hair color, eye color, favorite food, top phrases, etc. etc. You won’t. Keep a series bible from day one.
2. Recapping a 375-page book in less than two pages in the first chapter of book 2 is super easy. SUPER EASY. (Not.)
3. With the world-building burden shouldered by Becoming Jinn, the story and the pacing in Circle of Jinn was free to take off at a faster clip. Love that!
4. In a series with an already large ensemble cast, it’s surprising that two new characters who appear in Circle of Jinn stole my heart. Love you guys, Zak and Matin!
5. Revisiting the world of the Jinn in Circle of Jinn was immensely enjoyable. I love these characters, I love this world, and I consider the ability to dive back in for a second book a gift. Truly. No snark. I save that for Azra.
Thanks everyone for reading the Becoming Jinn series!
