Djinn Justice – update!

Djinn Justice is almost a solid draft. I just need to make sure the ending delivers the fireworks that the story promises.

Here’s the draft blurb. Critique is welcome 🙂

 

A new relationship doesn’t need added pressure…

Fay Olwen is still adjusting to life as one of a couple. She never expected to have a sexy leopard-were cuddling her at midnight in his huge bed in his gorgeous villa on the Mediterranean island of Cyprus. But here she is, in love and in luck—finally! There’s not a demon in sight.

Pity she can’t say the same about the invading djinn.

As romantic plans are scuttled, Fay discovers she has a lot to learn about her new lover. Steve Jekyll isn’t simply the lethal mercenary she thought him. He’s also heir to the Suzerainty, the ancient order that delivers justice for all weres.

Steve hoped he’d have more time to reveal the many aspects of his complicated life to Fay; not least, his family. But with a rogue mage teaming up with a power-mad jackal-were to enslave innocent weres, Steve hasn’t got time for tact. His family are just going to have to deal with the fact that his chosen mate isn’t a were. She is, in fact, their total and feared opposite: a mage.

And Fay isn’t any ordinary mage. She’s an ex-Collegium guardian with the magical firepower to banish Axlttrea demons.

Fay wouldn’t normally break a sweat defeating a poorly trained rogue mage, but this spell is different. This spell steals a person’s dream essence: all that they are and all that they will be. The result is heart-breaking zombies.

From the cold of Siberia to the Mountains of the Moon, Fay and Steve are involved in an epic battle against evil—and against in-law disapproval. They might win one fight, but which one?
“Djinn Justice” is for fans of paranormal romance who like their adventures filled with humor and heart. It can easily be read as a stand-alone novel, although the novella “Demon Hunter” tells the story of how Fay and Steve get together.

  1. Considering my blurbs need updating into the 21st century, take these suggestions as training for working on my own, lol!

    Not familiar with a lot of fantasy terms kinda threw me a bit, but for your target audience may not matter.

    I would move this to the top and split into two short paragraphs:

    And I would change this long sentence into an opp to indirectly say what a “were” is:

    She never expected to have a sexy leopard-were cuddling her at midnight in his huge bed in his gorgeous villa on the Mediterranean island of Cyprus. – to:

    She never expected to have a sexy leopard-were cuddling her at midnight in his [huge – change to something concrete that give an idea of real size, ie, stadium size, or clan size, or something like that] bed. And were’s, being xxxx, to be in his gorgeous villa on the Mediterranean.

    So, as my writer friends and acquaintances know, all this is top of my head, and is meant as just fun brainstorming. 🙂

    All the best, Jenny!

    1. Adan, that’s really helpful – truly. You’ve triggered a thought for some of my other blurbs. I think I may be ending the blurb with the hook I should open with. Hmm. Have a great weekend, my friend 🙂
