Review: An intriguing story about Mystic detectives who hire Ilyas Bashour a human scholar to try to figure out about the missing humans. On his journey he meets Namir, a Jinn. It broke my heart to read that Namir had been abused. I shuddered through that portion of the story as no one deserves that.
llyas seemed kind and tried his best to help Namir with what he had been through. I was unsure as to what era or time period this story took place so it was a little confusing at times but still really good. I loved the chemistry between Namir and llyas as it seemed they were brought together when they needed each other the most.
The story seemed to draw the reader into a mysterious world that has amazing creatures as well a mystery to solve. I was cheering for Namir and llyas all throughout as I so hoped they could be happy together despite Namir’s past abuse.
Although I wish some scenes had been expanded to make them longer it was still a fascinating read. The overall enjoyment was good. I will warn readers that it does talk about past abuse on Namir’s part so be forewarned.
