For fans of Laini Taylor’s Daughter of Smoke and Bone series and Leigh Bardugo’s Grisha trilogy comes the first book in the Dark Caravan Cycle, a modern fantasy-adventure trilogy about a gorgeous, fierce eighteen-year-old jinni who is pitted against two magnetic adversaries, both of whom want her—and need her—to make their wishes come true.

Nalia is a jinni of tremendous ancient power, the only survivor of a coup that killed nearly everyone she loved. Now in hiding on the dark caravan—the lucrative jinni slave trade between Arjinna and Earth, where jinn are forced to grant wishes and obey their human masters’ every command—she’d give almost anything to be free of the golden shackles that bind her to Malek, her handsome, cruel master, and his lavish Hollywood lifestyle.

Enter Raif, the enigmatic leader of Arjinna’s revolution and Nalia’s sworn enemy. He promises to release Nalia from her master so that she can return to her ravaged homeland and free her imprisoned brother. There’s just one catch: for Raif’s unbinding magic to work, Nalia must gain possession of her bottle … and convince the dangerously persuasive Malek that she truly loves him.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A rich, unique world, full of characters who blaze as brightly as their tremendous powers…Exquisite Captive is a beautiful and clever reimagining of the mythology of the jinn and utterly unlike anything I’ve ever read. Seductive, refreshing, and unforgettable!”

    Sarah J. Maas, New York Times bestselling author of Throne of Glass

  • “The story unfolds at a swift, even pace, and the world building is superb; the jinn inhabit an intoxicating, richly realized realm of magic, politics, spirituality, and history. Readers will wish they had a jinni to grant them the next book in the series.”
