Summary

Summary

A beguiling novel of revenge, deliverance, and a powerful sisterhood of magic by the Washington Post bestselling author of The Vine Witch and The Glamourist.

Sidra didn’t murder her husband. Yet even a jinni can’t wish away a wrongful imprisonment. Determined to prove her innocence, she returns to her adopted home—a French village renowned for its perfume witches—with her friends Elena and Yvette by her side. Here is where Sidra’s true destiny awaits, but danger also lurks in the village’s narrow lanes.

On her trail is Jamra, another jinni, who’s after more than revenge for the murder of his brother. He also seeks vengeance for the indignities inflicted on jinn by mortals over the centuries. When he learns of an ancient relic capable of unleashing chaos on the world, and that the weapon is in the hands of his murderous sister-in-law, he vows to destroy Sidra to get it.

Relying on a sisterhood of magic, a mysteriously faithful dog, and a second-rate sorcerer, Sidra defends herself using the village’s greatest asset: its perfume. It’s as beguiling a lure as it is a formidable shield. But is it enough for Sidra to protect herself and those she loves from powers yet to be released?

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Readers will enjoy catching up with the characters they already know. Smith (The Glamourist) does lovely work describing the luscious smells that Sidra works with. Library Journal
Series readers and newcomers alike will be enthralled. Publishers Weekly
“Jones' standard American accent contrasts with Assadourian’s light Middle Eastern cadence, which hints at the story's ancient mystery, and her tones, which allude to the underlying danger the sisterhood faces. The quest engages the imagination and the narrators increase suspense through wide-ranging emotional phrasings—from seeing the mystical Grand Pere in the forest to women’s whispered thoughts amid an incense burner’s gentle scent and cries of fear and enthusiasm as they call spells. Booklist
“Smith capably pulls double duty by crafting a satisfying end to the trilogy while also spinning a story that serves as a gripping fantasy in its own right. Series readers and newcomers alike will be enthralled.” Publishers Weekly
