Granted: Curse of the Emerald Jinn

Sixteen-year-old Liam Covington is the only one who sees colorful shadows following him around school. They're brightest whenever someone messes with him. That's why Liam lives by a short code: keep a low profile, stay away from the colors, and don't talk to Kenna Berlin.

 

But today Kenna saved his life. And he just made enemies with the biggest jock in school. And worst of all, the strange conch shell he brought home from the dunes today is making the colors brighter.

Granted is an exciting YA urban fantasy based on the folktale "The Fisherman and the Genie". 

Reviews

Rachel Huffmire's fairy tale retellings contain the best from the original stories, refreshing new and characters, and incredible twists! I always start expecting to know how it will go, and I end up totally amazed and in love with the world and the characters she creates.

-Bree Moore, Author of the Lost Souls Series

I love that the main character in Granted is a 16-year-old boy. Anyone familiar with the YA section at any book store knows how rare that is. As a mother of teenage boy readers I really appreciate having a male MC. I also think girls reading will LOVE the male POV.

-Ruth Mitchell, Author of Deleted

Perfect for teens and adults alike, Huffmire weaves a wonderful story full of surprising twists and turns and relatable characters that are purely spellbinding.

Rachel Huffmire has excelled at bringing the reader on 16-year-old Liam's journey as he navigates the real world of a teenager.

- Risa Nyman, Author of Swallowed by a Secret

 

A sweet story filled with magic, cute romantic moments, school issues, and ancient curses. 

- Amy Michelle Carpenter, Author of Becoming Human

 

A relatable boy, from a single-parent home, struggling with school and trying to hide things from his worrying mother- who hasn't done this!? A really enjoyable book, suitable for all ages. 

- Lily, Goodreads Review

 

A very clever story about a seriously under-represented mythological powerhouse. 

-Kristy, Storyorigin Review

 

This is perfect for, not only teenage boys, but all teens and adults. The book and characters drew me in from the start and I could barely put it down. I have recommended it to all of my nieces and nephews as well as their parents.
