What would it be like to lose a family member? I’d distanced myself so far from my parents, I wasn’t sure what I’d feel if they died. I’d never even considered it. With three genies gone, there was a chance I’d never see them again. My eyes burned and a tear staggered down my cheek.
It was time for me to do something. By the time the Genie Council actually addressed the problem, it would be too late. I couldn’t stand back and watch another genie die.
As much as I hated saying it, I needed Rock’s help. And if he refused, I would try everything humanely possible. Because without my magic, I was only as good as a human.
Granted Book Summary
After being trapped in the Sahara Desert her whole life, sixteen-year-old genie Brielle finally gets her first assignment in Tri-Cities, Washington. In order to unlock her magic, Brielle has three weeks for her assigned human to make a wish. Unfortunately, Addie gave up believing in wishes years ago, and would much rather everyone just leave her alone.
When a nearby genie is killed, Brielle and her caretaker figure his lamp could have been broken on accident. As frustrating as Addie’s cynicism is, Brielle has enough to worry about. But after two more genies turn into ash, Brielle knows someone has discovered their secret and wants them gone.
Brielle desperately needs Addie to make a wish and to find the murderer or she could be the next genie to die. ~Future House Publishing
Granted Book Review
I’m giving this book a thumbs up. I enjoyed it. So much so, that I finished it in a day. Ok, so I was at the beach, and I was lounging, but still that’s an amazing feat when you have three kids (even if they were distracted by sand and cousins). The story line is interesting enough to keep you flipping to the next chapter, even if you are risking sun poisoning in your beach chair. The mystery keeps you engaged while the underlying romance pulls you in for future books. The main character, Brielle, is a feisty teenage genie who learns that having the ability to have anything you want isn’t as powerful as the relationships you build. Her transformation from superficial girl to heroine is what makes this story endearing. The story is tame enough for tween girl crowd, though older teens and adults will enjoy it also.

Hi, I’m Dachelle. I’m a homeschooling mom of 3 in the South. I love chocolate and have been known to hide it from my children.
