Trickster’s Hunt (Three Tricksters Book 1) by Carrie Whitethorne
This is a story about an average girl named Maia who finds out that she’s not so average. She often gets gut reactions to people never realizing that these reactions are saving her life. After going to London for a competition, she meets three Djinn who swear to protect her. It seems crazy but after an attempt on her life, she has no choice to believe.
This book is a mixture of fantasy, Egyptian mythology and reverse harem. Although it’s not full blown reverse harem, I think the series will eventually end up there. Maia is highly attracted to all three Djinn. Who wouldn’t be, they are gorgeous. I had never read a book about Djinn and that’s what made me pick up the book in the first place. I enjoyed the addition of Egyptian mythology. Usually you find books about the Greeks so this was a refreshing change. I had never heard of the god that made an appearance in this book and I admit that I had to google him. Usually authors include the popular gods in their stories. It was good that Ms. Whitethorne included a lesser known deity because I learned something by reading her book.
In the beginning I was a little confused between each Djinn as they were talking but it improved as the book progressed. I also think the lead up was a little long seeing as the threat to Maia only appeared towards the end of the book. Seeing as this is book one in the series, I feel I have to warn you that it ends in a cliffhanger. I’m still giving this book four stars because the story was unique and interesting to read. I believe this series has potential to be really good. I’m looking forward to reading part two.
