Book Description

From the New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author of On Dublin Street.

Smokeless Fire (Fire Spirits #1) - YA Urban Fantasy Romance


When eighteen year old Ari Johnson is transported from her bedroom into the chilling realm of Mount Qaf - home to the terrifying and mercurial Jinn - she learns a truth that rocks her very world. Suddenly her anxiety over college and her broken friendship with Charlie seem like small change compared to the war she now finds herself stuck in the middle of. Her unease isn’t lessened any by the hot guardian, Jai, who won’t stop following her around everywhere - a Jinn whose loyalty Ari hates to question but must. She has no idea who she can trust.

When the truth burns through her life in its determination to turn it to ashes, Ari will have to battle with ancient deadly creatures, epic family drama and heart-wrenching romantic entanglements.

Scorched Skies (Fire Spirits #2) is available now [ASIN: B007J68J60]
Borrowed Ember (Fire Spirits #3) is out now! [ASIN: B008D50NHY]


"I am a brand new fan of the world of the Jinn. Samantha Young created one that is unique and alluring and filled with all kinds of secrets that I want answers to...Smokeless Fire is an utterly riveting must read ..." Fiktshun Reviews

"I honestly cannot wait for book 2. Smokeless Fire is unique, exciting, yet so real. This book has just enough fantasy, just enough real world, just enough love triangle, just enough strength, just enough laughs. I couldn't put it down and Samantha has definitely found herself a new fan." Shortie Says Reviews

"Smokeless Fire makes for a great read. There is no way I wont be grabbing book 2 as soon as it is released! This YA paranormal romance was an awesome story and one I totally recommend you add to your reading pile very soon!" 5/5 Stars - The Slowest Bookworm Reviews

"Smokeless Fire is the beginning to an incredible series surely to capture everyone’s hearts. The characters are unique and easy to fall in love with. I hate to say that I am team Jai all the way! I totally recommend reading Smokeless Fire and any book from Samantha Young. " Once Upon a Twilight Reviews

"This book was jam-packed with everything that I love, a wholly unique premise...a strong (and snarky) female character, equally strong male characters (both of whom were entirely swoon-worthy)... All in all, this is a book that I know I will be rereading time and time again." Avery's Book Nook Reviews

"The whole concept of Jinn (Genies) in Smokeless Fire definitely stood out and made it such a wonderful and enjoying read...I loved all the characters presented in Smokeless Fire, namely Jai, Ari, and Charlie, in that order..Action packed throughout and leading to a cliffhanger ending will leave readers wanting more! 5/5 Must Read! Highly Recommended!" Moonlight Gleam Reviews

4.0 out of 5 stars A great start to the series! 19 Feb. 2012
By Sam
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Hmmmmmm, read some mixed reviews on this book but I ended up liking it.

Synopsis: For the last two years Ari's life has been anything but normal and on her 18th birthday, when her friends surprise her with a gimmick genie claiming to grant wishes, Ari discovers the truth. The tragic and strange occurrences surrounding her 16th birthday were not coincidental and her life is never going to be the same again.

Ari's real parents are not normal. They are not loving. They are not human. They are myth. They are Smokeless Fire. They are Jinn.

I must say, this book was EXTREMELY confusing at times. The whole plot of the story was Ari discovering her father and who she really is. Ari was a slightly annoying character to read about at times but I didn't mind her. I enjoyed her relationship with Charlie, you grew to like him over a period of time. I admire her relationship with him and I am shocked that she could still love him after seeing what he does in his free time....

Jai, lovely, lovely Jai. He was a humorous character to read about and I definitely like him. Set as Ari's guardian, the amazing and sexy boy starts to feel things for Ari but he pushes those feelings away, worried that they could get her hurt.

The book was....interesting. :) Satisfying but not worth screaming about. After reading this I hope to read Samantha Young's other books and sequel to Smokeless Fire, which is slated for summer 2012.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing 11 Nov. 2011
By kristi
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read the lunarmorte series and thought they were great and although I wasn't attracted to the idea of this story being about genies, I thought i'd give it a try. I wasn't disapointed. The genie aspect was so different and exciting I couldn't put the book down. Now I just have to wait for the next installment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Smokin' 5 Nov. 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have enjoyed all of Samantha Young's books so far - however Smokeless Far surpasses all the others! The characters are fantastic, I so want Ari and Jai to get together! The descriptions of the fantastic Jinn kings is amazing - would be great to see them on the big screen - you never know, that might be next!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Fantastic Book By Samantha Young 27 Jan. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Smokeless Fire is a truly gripping read and easily pulls you into the story to get you hooked. While teenage angst isn't my thing, this author has a way of making you care about the teenage characters that makes you put your self into their shoes regardless of your age. Ari and Jai's adventure starts as a rollcoaster that looks sure to continue twisiting and turning and I can't wait for the next in this series. I look forward to more about Charlie and where things lead to for him too.
I currently have all the books of Samantha Young available. I love the biting sacastic humour that are incorpoated into her books that have me tittering away to myself and Smokeless Fire is no different. Samantha Young has fast become my favorite author and I highly recommend you get her other books!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good set up for a new series 28 Dec. 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this introduction to a new series. The characters are interesting, the lead into the main plot well done and the story enjoyable.

It leaves you wanting a little bit more of the Jinn world, but I think this was done on purpose to entice you and leaves you eager to read the next book.

Well worth the read.

4.0 out of 5 stars No Slumber but still good read! 3 Nov. 2011
By CathF
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The latest Samantha Young book. I have enjoyed all her books so far and again she doesn't disappoint, she really knows how to create good characters that draw you in. Although not my favorite of hers so far I did still enjoy it. I found that i had to concentrate more to understand the detail around all the Jinn kings and mythology that went with it i had just finished her other book Slumber which i truly, unexpectedly loved.
If you love Samantha Young books then you will love this one too, without a doubt, but if you haven't yet had the pleasure start with Slumber or The Tale of the Lunarmorte books.

4.0 out of 5 stars Uniquely Written 5 Feb. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Stumbling upon the book by accident, I decided to give it a shot and must say that I am pleased with this decision.

The book was well-written and had a unique flair to it which I enjoyed, the introduction of the characters were well done and I felt like I was learning a lot about this whole other world without feeling overwhelmed with too much information.

My only complaint fell with the characters, I could not get emotionally invested in them which is usually the most important part of a book for me. Aside from Jai, I could not pick one character that I really liked.

I did feel that it became a bit too rushed near the end with some of the more action packed chapters and I struggled to keep up but at the same time, I enjoy when a book does this as it helps me get more involved and feel more empathy for the characters.

I purchased Scorched Skies at the same time and am currently working through this one as I have enjoyed the first in the series, eager to see how this all ends.
