Two sisters. A war. And the wish to end regret.
The sisters: Najwa and Zayele have just learned they’re half-jinni, half-human twins. Najwa chooses life in the human palace, working for peace . . . and hoping for more time alone with the prince. Zayele discovers she’s one of the most powerful jinn of all—a magus. Suddenly, the strongest young men in the army are competing to be paired up with her.
The war: The lies that started it all are out in the open now, but the war between the humans and the jinn is as bitter as before—and becoming more treacherous every day.
The wish: Once again, Zayele makes a wish. A wish that neither sister could imagine would change the outcome of the war—or their lives.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really fun This book was just as fun as the first, with lots of friendship and romance and adventure, as well as some really original lore and world building. I liked watching both girls grow into their new roles and figure out their place in the world. The romance here was minimal, but that was okay, because I'd rather watch the girls grow into themselves than swooning over the guys, even if it did leave a lot of their relationship questions unanswered. If I had to complain about anything, it would probably be that it was too short - a lot was packed into under 300 pages, culminating in a massive battle, and I could have done with a bit more - more shaitan training for Zayele, more insight into their grief and confusion. Everything moved really quickly, which was great for the pace, but left me feeling a bit unsatisfied. I really liked this second book, and while I think it could probably stop there, I'm definitely interested to see if there will be a third.
