She is the most powerful Jinni of all. He is a boy from the streets. Their love will shake the world...

When Aladdin discovers Zahra's jinni lamp, Zahra is thrust back into a world she hasn't seen in hundreds of years—a world where magic is forbidden and Zahra's very existence is illegal. She must disguise herself to stay alive, using ancient shape-shifting magic, until her new master has selected his three wishes.

But when the King of the Jinn offers Zahra a chance to be free of her lamp forever, she seizes the opportunity—only to discover she is falling in love with Aladdin. When saving herself means betraying him, Zahra must decide once and for all: is winning her freedom worth losing her heart? 


Retelling of Aladdin like you’ll never imagined before. Forbidden love, a villain, a princess. THE FORBIDDEN WISH is action packed, filled with danger and the twists that you won’t see coming.

At first I was hesitant about picking up THE FORBIDDEN WISH when I found out that it was retelling Of Aladdin, a story that I loved most of my childhood. The cover, the title was what had drawn me to the story. Now that I have read it, I am glad that I decided to give it a chance. I was absorbed from the first page till the last. I adored Zahra’s and Aladdin’s story and even found myself wondering what will come next for them. I loved the fact that Jinni was a girl in this retelling, a jinni that ends up falling in love with a human, Aladdin. Their love, it surprised me and that Zahra even gave up her freedom at one point, so that she could save him, even convincing the princess to help her. I loved the bond that two of them created. I could see how much Zahra cared about Aladdin before she did, before he did. Zahra was the one that he wanted, not the princess. I was actually happy when he put wedding to stop, that he could not go through with it. The two of them were constantly saving one another, even if she wouldn’t admit it at first. They belonged with one another.

I love the princess, Caspida and her friends. All of them always stood by each other, looked out for one another no matter what. It’s hard to not like her. Fact that she believed Zahra and helped her save Aladdin, fought a war. She is strong and I think that she will make a great Queen, even if she seemed to have trouble believing that at a moment. Besides Zahra and Aladdin she was one of my favorite characters in this book. There wasn’t anything that I didn’t enjoy in this book. Every chapter, every page there was always something going on, keeping you from putting the book down because you wonder how it all will end. Will they Win? Will Zahra finally be free and be with Aladdin where she belongs? How can you stop at that? I couldn’t, and I didn’t till I reached the end. Even once I reached the end, I found myself craving for more. I wanted to know what will happen after, and are they truly safe and free?

THE FORBIDDEN WISH is an action packed love story, will stay with you long after you turn the last page. It’s magical.
