A TALE OF TWO DJINNS is a sexy paranormal Romeo & Juliet story with genies, feminists, kickass action & adult fun.
Akshay, warrior prince of the earth djinns, earns the title of Crown Prince at a high cost when he loses his best friend in a battle against ancient enemies, the water djinns. Heartsick, he escapes to Earth to mourn.
Nothing gets the biological clock ticking (and elders lecturing) like almost dying in battle, so Maya, princess of the water djinns, travels to Earth for some no-strings-attached sex to fulfill her duty and produce an heir. But the beautiful and tough warrior gets more than she bargained for when she meets Shay.
Their not-so-simple one-night stand is interrupted by assassins and the world, as they know it, is changed forever. As Maya and Shay pull together to survive, both are determined to have their happily-ever-after and bring peace to their worlds — warring families, shadow assassins, and nosy busybodies be damned.

A Tale of Two Djinns by Mina Khan is a sexy and fun novella. Full of fascinating landscapes and original ideas!
The flow of the story paired with a beautiful uniqueness made for a pleasant and entertaining read. This novella is a story about two Djinns from opposing Djinn clans. After an interesting night and more surprising morning, the shenanigans really begin. Maya and Akshay are each very well developed characters full of personality and individuality. I didn’t enjoy Maya’s inability to be honest. For me it is always a challenge to understand where the character is coming from and why the lie continued. The initial reason was clearly presented to the reader, but I didn’t feel the continuation was.
This is certainly my personal preference as a reader. However, pushing that aside A Tale of Two Djinns was still an enjoyable read. I love Khan’s ability to draw me into the story and world and a Tale of Two Djinns is not an exception.
I rate A Tale of Two Djinns 3.5 out of 5 Bullets!
