Shapeshifting djinn Safiyya is licking her wounds after an unfortunate accident—caused by the woman who was once her best friend—traps her in the form of an ocelot. So she is less than thrilled when that very friend, Ghadir, turns up on her doorstep, asking for Safiyya’s help to investigate strange occurrences in the area’s magic. But when they find a young girl—an illegally-created genie—at the center of the disturbances, Safiyya knows she can’t just turn tail and run. Safiyya is thrown into turmoil as she is confronted not only with the aftermath of her accident but also with Ghadir’s own issues, amplified by the discovery of a genie. And when an evil djinn shows up, pursuing the girl, what started as a simple investigation turns to something much more sinister. Can they put aside their differences long enough to save the girl? Or will they fall before they can warn the entire Djinn Realm of their greatest enemy yet? This Cursed Light is the heartrending prequel to This Cursed Flame, book 1 of Selina J. Eckert’s This Curse series. If you like found family, fast-paced action, and imaginative fantasy, you will love these enchanting books!
