A life of despair, a heart-crippling desire, and a desperate wish to belong.
I thought after mastering the four arts of wishing, I would finally be given a break to spend time with my lovers Cole, Luke, Owen, and Jeremiah. Little did I know that Mother Fantasia had other plans for me.
Due to the pounding headache that almost cripples me and the familiar purple and pink petals that rain down from my surroundings, I’m left in a moment of confusion before a powerful wish summons me out of Fantasia.
For my first official day as Destiny the Merciful, the person I encounter is NOT whom I expected. Given the task of granting his wish to belong, it’s now my duty to connect the dots and figure out the final puzzle pieces in the Jinn of Rebirth’s mystery.
Our bonds will be strengthened if we can manage to win the final showdown happening in the heart of Fantasia. Will the evil impostor lurking in disguise get what he wants? Or can the five of us eliminate the threat before all is lost?
I guess the saying is true: Be careful what you wish for…
This book should come with a warning: do not read without having Kleenex ready. Because if you’re anything like me, i.e. a blobbering mess, you will definitely need it!!
I know I have criticised Yumo a lot for writing the same books over and over, with only changing minor details like names, hair colours and shifter beings. But that’s not even close to being the case, with her story about Destiny Jinn. When I heard that this final book in the series was short compared to the rest, the critic within was instantly on high alert. How would it all play out? Would I even get a satisfied ending, with the massive cliffhanger she left me with in the previous book? Now I’m happy that I can give a big fat “yes” to those questions. There’s no big fight or epic battle, instead this book focuses on love and accept. The spoken words are both the sword and the shield, and it makes for a very beautiful ending.
When it comes to Destiny’s men I would have wished their individuality stood out a bit more. In previous books, when she spends 1:1 time with them, they shine. But when they’re all together they quickly become a bit bland – and that is the only reason this book doesn’t get a full 5 hearts. Though, this is almost forgiven when Yumo introduces some really hot M/M sword on sword action. I believe this is her first venture into M/M but she executes it in a great way. The love and sex rings true and it has a natural flow.
A part of me really wants to know what comes next, and to be along side all of them for their new adventures. But another part is like “no”!! Please don’t!!! I feel that would ruin the serenity and beauty of the epilogue.
How do you feel about M/M action within the harem? Do you like books with Jinn’s or beings that can grant wishes? Let’s chat in the comments!
