I am very excited to be participating in Selina J. Eckert’s cover reveal for her new series, This Curse. I also had the honor of designing the cover for This Cursed Flame, the first book in this amazing series about genies and djinns and science nerds. It truly sounds amazing.
Six years ago, Janan was ripped from her home, her school, and her humanity by the malicious Ahriman, a domineering djinn who transformed her into a genie. Now, after spending those years on the run, she finds herself at the center of a djinn uprising led by none other than Ahriman himself, who wants nothing more than to silence her threat to his power. Permanently.
As his creation, Janan is the one thing that stands in his way, but she can’t stop him alone.
Laurelin, high school science nerd, discovers a crystal bottle, dragging her along on an adventure she never wanted. Now she finds herself surrounded by the mysteries of an ancient order of djinn. If she can decipher their creations, and combat her own doubts and anger, she could help turn the tide of this uprising.
When the two girls are thrown together, they must learn to cooperate and trust each other, and themselves, if they are to have any hope of survival. Otherwise, the human and djinn realms will both fall to the tide of death and dark magic this revolt will unleash.
Doesn’t this sound fabulous? I agree! It totally does!
