Jinn and Juice

By Nicole Peeler (Electronic Book, 2014)
Cursed to be a jinni for a thousand years, Lyla nears the end of her servitude -- only to be bound once again against her will. Will she risk all to be human?

Born in ancient Persia, Lyla turned to her house Jinni, Kouros, for help escaping an arranged marriage. Kouros did make it impossible for her to marry -- by cursing Lyla to live a thousand years as a Jinni herself.

If she can remain unBound, Lyla's curse will soon be over.

Unfortunately, becoming Bound may risk more than just her chance to be human once more -- it could risk her very soul...

Jinn and Juice is the first in a new series by fantasy writer, Nicole Peeler set in a world of immortal curses, vengeful jinni and belly dancing.

Nicole Peeler writes urban fantasy and is an associate professor at Seton Hill University, where she co-directs their MFA in Writing Popular Fiction. Having recently finished her award-winning Jane True series, she is looking forward to the publication of Jinn and Juice, the first book in a series about a cursed jinni living in Pittsburgh. Nicole also lives in Pittsburgh, although she's neither cursed nor a jinni.
  • "Peeler is perfect. Jinn and Juice is her best urban fantasy yet with vibrant characters that leap off the page fully formed from the first line. Fast-paced, rowdy, smart, irresistible, and tender, there's just no one who hits the urban fantasy marks as well as Peeler. Buy this book! Read it! Love it!" (Kat Richardson on Jinn and Juice).

  • "Peeler has done it again! Jinn and Juice is a delightful read filled with action, humor, heart, and a heroine to cheer for. And it doesn't hurt that there are also sirens, trolls, bugbears, and plenty of Pittsburgh steel."  ( Kevin Hearne, author of Hounded, on Jinn and Juice ).

  • "Jinn and Juice is a raucous, raunchy tale well told.  One thing's certain:  you'll never look at Pittsburgh the same way after you've taken Nicole Peeler's mythic joyride up, down, and sideways in pursuit of an abducted teenage girl and freedom from a thousand-year curse.  Legend and history, betrayal and love intertwine as the story moves from lascivious sex clubs to the unraveling of a mystery to a magical  jinni throw-down which will leave you panting for more. Jinn and Juice is Urban Fantasy at its smartest, naughtiest, funniest best." (Juliet Blackwell).

  • "Snarky, sexy!  Beautifully descriptive and painstakingly plotted.  Lyla is a smart, sly and just this side of scary. Peeler's world-building is clever and complete with every possible fairy folk character! The other-worldly seems familiar and glamorous all at the same time.  And I learned how to curse in a few new languages, so it was educational!" (Molly Harper on Jinn and Juice).

  • "Nicole Peeler is a master at weaving humor and romance together to create addictive stories and characters!"  (Richelle Mead on Jinn and Juice).

  • "This series is urban fantasy at its best!" (RT Book Reviews Top Pick! (4.5 stars) on Tempest Reborn).

  • "Grounded equally in ancient myth and the challenges of modern life, Jane True lives up to her name ... true, and truly unique!  A fascinating, fast-paced, sexy storm of a book." (Rachel Caine on Tempest Rising).

  • "Witty and fun, with a dash of dark suspense." (Scifichick.com on Tempest Rising).

  • "A new star is rising in the urban fantasy world.  With her Jane True character, Peeler launches a first-person series that's an exciting journey of self-discovery and murder mystery." (RT Book Reviews (4-1/2 Stars) on Tempest Rising
    ).
