The discovery of an ancient bottle unleashes a Genie - and the wrath of the Demon Gypsies chasing her...
When Suzette (“Suki”) is released from her bottle by two teen girls, she is more than a bit surprised that a Genie of her calibre is beholden to two average high school students. After dealing with dignitaries and noblemen, however, she believes this will be a welcome break.
Until she discovers the teens’ hidden powers and that one will come to possess the Amulet of Pollox, a necklace that contains the secrets from some of the greatest minds throughout history. Unfortunately, she’s not the only one who notices. The Amulet draws the attention of the two powerful and vengeful Demon Gypsies who have pursued Suki through time and will stop at nothing to snatch the girls and the Amulet.
Suddenly, Suki is not just helping the girls navigate high school crushes, she’s safeguarding them from danger unlike anything they’ve ever known. To make matters more complicated, she must also fight her attraction to James - her protector through the ages - whose sudden arrival threatens her resolve and her heart.
A time-traveling Genie and her unrequited love...
Demon Gypsies with an insatiable quest for power...
And the teen girls whose existence threatens them all.
This is the world of “Released,” book one of The Romani Realms series by Mia Fox, a Young Adult trilogy featuring elements of paranormal romance and steampunk.
James gives new meaning to the strong silent type. Although he has watched over Suki for centuries, he kept his presence unknown to the time traveling genie who would one day steal his heart. As a Shade, James is devoted to Suki and vowed to watch over her, although his presence in her life remained a secret until she was released by teens Charlotte and Samantha, and the wrath of Raven and Phineas -- demon gypsies -- was unleashed.
When looking after Suki, James is both Southern gentleman and mischievous rogue. His personality borders on arrogant, but one could never place that label on him because gosh darn it, he has every reason to be arrogant. With charm and good looks, an astute knowledge of history, he is a supernatural hottie if there ever was one. Oh, and to complete the package, he’s also a highly successful business man with a fortune made during the Industrial Revolution. Talk about boyfriend material.
