Twenty-three year old Dimitri has to do what he is told—literally. Controlled by a paranormal bond, he is forced to use his wits to fulfill unlimited deadly wishes made by multimillionaire Karl Walker.

Dimitri has no idea how his family line became trapped in the genie bond. He just knows resisting has never ended well. When he meets Syd—assertive, sexy, intelligent Syd—he becomes determined to make her his own. Except Karl has ensured Dimitri can't tell anyone about the bond, and Syd isn't the type to tolerate secrets.

Then Karl starts sending him away on back-to-back wishes. Unable to balance love and lies, Dimitri sets out to uncover Karl's ultimate plan and put it to an end. But doing so forces him to confront the one wish he never saw coming—the wish that will destroy him.

 There is no other way to say this...Dimitri is freaking hilarious. He is snarky and has some fantastic one-liners that are gonna make you snort with laughter. Sure, he's evil, but he's also got that gooey center that peeks out once in a while, just enough to keep him likable. And really, you shouldn't like him. He's kinda reprehensible, but you do and you can't help it!

This was a really good paranormal fantasy. Gritty, dark, a touch disturbing, with a character (or two)that is kinda off her rocker (*waves at Syd*), mystery, suspense, insidiousness just begging to be read. The words that often get tossed around in reviews are world-building, character development, etc. And if you want to add the adjectives brilliant and well-developed to those, you'd be right on the money. I really liked this original idea of a genie who is bound to a family and can be inherited. That is the first time I've read something like that and it was truly captivating in that my mind started asking a bunch of what-if's!

The beginning of the book was a little bit of a rough start for me, but I quickly got into it. When you read this, if you feel the same way, I urge you to keep trying. Keep going. Just a little more! And...while there IS a sequel, I think you'll be happy with the ending of this book. Well done, Ms Kaye!
