The discovery of an ancient bottle unleashes a Genie – and the wrath of the Demon Gypsies chasing her…
When Suzette (“Suki”) is released from her bottle by two teen girls, she is more than a bit surprised that a Genie of her calibre is beholden to two average high school students. After dealing with dignitaries and noblemen, however, she believes this will be a welcome break.
Until she discovers the teens’ hidden powers and that one will come to possess the Amulet of Pollox, a necklace that contains the secrets from some of the greatest minds throughout history. Unfortunately, she’s not the only one who notices. The Amulet draws the attention of the two powerful and vengeful Demon Gypsies who have pursued Suki through time and will stop at nothing to snatch the girls and the Amulet.
Suddenly, Suki is not just helping the girls navigate high school crushes, she’s safeguarding them from danger unlike anything they’ve ever known. To make matters more complicated, she must also fight her attraction to James – her protector through the ages – whose sudden arrival threatens her resolve and her heart.
A time-traveling Genie and her unrequited love…
Demon Gypsies with an insatiable quest for power…
And the teen girls whose existence threatens them all.
This is the world of “Released,” book one of The Romani Realms series by Mia Fox, a Young Adult trilogy featuring elements of paranormal romance and steampunk.
Suzette is a three-hundred plus year old genie, but unless you want to start a rather sudden thunderstorm in your living room, you wouldn’t dare bring up her age. She spent her formative years in the South and whole heartedly believes that one should not discuss the age of a lady. But the real reason is that Suki is a tad bit vain and quite proud of the fact that she doesn’t look a day over 29.
Having time traveled in and out of the lives of many a famous man, she has learned a thing or two about love, except where her own heart is concerned. Falling for James may be her un-doing. She is head over heels, but not quite used to the idea of a man serving as her protector. After all, she has always been the one to influence and lead the men in her life. Every man who has ever released her has established their place in history — unfortunately, that place hasn’t always been rooted with rewards. Even though Suki may lead her releasors astray, her heart is in the right place and overflowing with the best of intentions.
