Sneak Peek Review | The Forbidden Wish by Jessica Khoury
This is a retelling of Alladin, narrated from the Genie’s point of view. Finally, the genie was given a history, a backstory that goes beyond the Lamp. Ms. Khoury’s added twists are really intriguing. After reading the first eight chapters, I can readily say that she has a very cohesive plot. A lot has been put together to plausibly answer some millennial-old questions without losing any of the magical elements that made Alladin a beloved story for all time.
A few cleaning up, here and there, and this book is ready to go. Something great and exciting to look forward to come February 2016.
