Sneak Peek Review | THE FORBIDDEN WISH by Jessica Khoury

I have this unspoken love for reimagined fairy tales, myths, and legends. So when NetGalley offered a sneak preview of this book, I took it without any hesitation.

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 coming February 2016.
