Sentenced to the worst punishment a djinn can receive...
Imprisoned in the outer circles of the otherworld, Aldair al-Ankara is doomed to unending suffering. Believing he’ll never escape, he’s accepted his dismal fate. But when destiny steps in, everything changes for Aldair.
Ever since the Heat wiped out most of the world’s population, Jillian Powell has done nothing but try to make herself useful and helpful. When a lab accident hurls her into the otherworld’s outer circles, a handsome stranger saves her from certain death. Escaping and finding sanctuary in an isolated New Mexico town, Aldair and Jillian fight their growing attraction for one another. But even as their chemistry intensifies, reality sets in. Suddenly, they both realize that keeping Aldair hidden from the rest of the djinn might be harder than they ever imagined….
“Aldair was the antagonist of another book, so I was doubtful that he could become a sympathetic character in this book. However, it worked. He was as arrogant at the beginning of the story as he had been previously in the series, but you’re also afforded his perspective of those earlier events. While it doesn’t excuse his behavior, it helps you understand the motivation behind it, and accept that he can find some redemption.”—Amazon reviewer
