I am keeping Big Brother happy with this disclosure.
I received this product for free to facilitate my review, in exchange for my honest opinion. I will only highlight products that I feel will be of benefit to or enjoyed by my readers. For more information regarding product review, please refer to my media kit.
When I began reading this book, I was thinking it would be like the old "I Love Jeannie" TV series reruns that I remember from my childhood. I mean it is about genies after all. But that really was what I thought and I was so very far from the reality of this book.
Yes one of the main characters and a few others are genies, but it is more about self discovery.
First Brielle, a genie, learns about herself without magic and how much she believes magic, or lack there of, defines her.
Addie, her first assignment, learns how much she needs to believe, in friendship as well as wishes, when Brielle comes into her life and starts breaking down the walls around her heart.
Brielle, and all genies, only have 3 weeks to grant wishes to their charges. Brielle has not, as the story begins, granted a wish and therefore has not received her magic yet.
She desperately needs Addie to make a wish so that she can receive her magic, but to also free Addie from her self imposed loneliness.
When genies start disappearing before their weeks are up, aka die, the search is on to find the cause while also trying to grant Addie at least one wish before the end of the three week time frame and to receive her magic.
I enjoyed this book for a number of reasons. But the fact that it is a "safe" book for younger readers without making it a "kids only" book, makes it a great choice for anyone.
If you believe or want to believe in magic and would like to read Granted, it is available at a discounted price of $2.99 from June 30th through July 7th. Let me tell you , this is a great deal. On June 30th, Future House Publishing Blog Readers can enter to win an autographed copy of Granted. They will also be giving away some more printed copies on July 1st on Goodreads.
I hope you will check this one out at launch - yes it was a nice book for all ages ... the only requirement? Keep an open mind, so you too can believe in magic!
Edit - the launch has been delayed - check out Granted on the new release date of June 30th.
I hope there will be an adjustment to the discounted price noted here as well as the giveaway. I'll let you know what I hear as soon as I hear it!
