I liked the beginning of this book and can easily understand why it was recommended to me. Snarky heroine, sexy aloof Djinn with a twinkle in his eyes , amethyst eyes no less! There's a lot more to Irving then meets the eye , he has quite a past and is an inventor to boot so if you enjoy a touch of steampunk alongside magic than this might just be the book for you. What Glory discovers about him was almost exactly what I suspected . Glory hmm what do I say about her? I think her personality will divide readers as I'm pretty sure not everyone will like her. Yes she can be funny and clearly suffers from verbal diarrhoea but she can also appear obnoxious at times . I really enjoyed some of the authors unusual choices to describe things but alas wasn't sure about the big reveal.Read more ›
I’ve never before read any books based in djinn mythology, although as with all fantasy, I was intrigued. I’ve got to say, I wasn’t let down and the book made me want to delve into more djinn-type books. Wish for Me also has a strong steampunky type feel to it, what with all the goggles and tiny top hats, the clockwork and the steel, the fashion and even the attitudes to some degree. At first, I was really surprised. When the first automaton comes into the story, it didn’t seem to fit at all but I soon got comfortable with it and began to look forward to reading more of it. I don’t know whether djinn literature and steampunk often go hand in hand like that, but I really enjoyed that element of this book and it made me want to read more by A. Star (who, as a side note, is also Diantha Jones. I’m confused, but let’s just leave it at that).
The descriptions too were something to behold. When describing Shrinelyn (the djinn realm) especially, I was really able to picture the people, the places, and the all the clockwork and steel creations. Star has an excellent way with words when writing descriptions and if I had the chance to see the beauty of Shrinelyn for myself, I would most definitely jump at the chance! It’s a shame, it must be said, that Star’s way with words didn’t quite stretch to the rest of the narrative.Read more ›
I really liked Glory as a character. She’s really likeable and I enjoyed seeing where her story went. There’s lots of witty dialogue between her and Irving that outright made me laugh, and I definitely enjoyed seeing their relationship come together. Glory is no meek character, she bites back and gives as good as she gets. It was really great to see her and Irving go up against each other, especially given his dislike for humans.
There were a few moments in the book that were a little predictable, but overall I really enjoyed the story and it kept me captivated till the end. As with all books I seem to read recently, there is a massive cliffhanger, but hopefully there won’t be too long a wait for book two.
Wish for Me is definitely not for children, and a word of warning for graphic sex and bad language. If however you’re looking for a light and fun read, this is definitely the book for you. It’s well written, exciting and has some wonderful characters that you’re definitely going to want to see again.
Glory finds the lamp in her grandmother's belongings. After turning the key three times, Glory finds herself faced with Irving, a Djinn of the higest order. Secrets long kept are bought to the surface, and Glory and Irving are in danger.
OH OH OH OH HOH HOH HOH!!
Need to tell you, people, please don't hate me! Cliffhanger alert!! Seriously did not see that one creeping up on me, nor did I see that revelation either! There I was, merrily reading away, watching how much time I had left to read cos I wanted to finish this book in my lunch break, then boom! Intermiision! Not a happie chappie, I tell ya!
For I Loved this! I lovd Glory and her way with words, and Irving and his lack there of. I loved the story, the speed at which it moved, just right. I loved the steampunk too. While its billed on Amazon as steampunk, when I was asked did I want to read it, I didn't get that bit, so the steampunk seemed almost thrown in, but its not. I'm sorry if that makes no sense, but it does to me! :-P
I even loved the single person POV in the first person. We only get to hear from Glory, and YES of course I wanted to hear from Irving, when he first meets Glory, when he takes her to Shrinelyn, at other key points along the way, of course I did. But that's me, I'm greedy! I still loved it. A prime example of a grat story, told brilliantly negating my dislike of single POV in the first.
Some steam, passion-wise, some danger, some drama, some magic, some steampunk and some distortion of history as we currently know it. Just the right amount of something for everyone.
So why 4.5 and not 5 stars?? That ending. Thats all, and ONLY because I didn't see it creeping up on me!
I can't wait for book 2 and hope I get the chance to review it too :-)
