Review: A Tale of Two Dijinns by Mina Khan

A TALE OF TWO DJINNS is a sexy paranormal Romeo & Juliet story with genies, feminists, kickass action & adult fun.
Akshay, warrior prince of the earth djinns, earns the title of Crown Prince at a high cost when he loses his best friend in a battle against ancient enemies, the water djinns. Heartsick, he escapes to Earth to mourn.
Nothing gets the biological clock ticking (and elders lecturing) like almost dying in battle, so Maya, princess of the water djinns, travels to Earth for some no-strings-attached sex to fulfill her duty and produce an heir. But the beautiful and tough warrior gets more than she bargained for when she meets Shay.
Their not-so-simple one-night stand is interrupted by assassins and the world, as they know it, is changed forever. As Maya and Shay pull together to survive, both are determined to have their happily-ever-after and bring peace to their worlds — warring families, shadow assassins, and nosy busybodies be damned.

My Review:

What an incredible tale! This author infused this book with her startling creativity, and it is apparent in every page. From start to finish, you are thrust into the incredible world of the Dijinn, but not as you have ever read. This story is about their realm, their powers, and the feuds that keep the clans separate. 
Maya is a water Dijinn. She is a minor princess, sixth in line as a matter of fact, who has no interest in marriage. She is a warrior through and through and comes alive at the the thought of battle. Her mother is pressuring her to wed, but offers her an alternative. Give birth.....and you can skip the I do...

Even though the idea is a little distasteful, it pales in comparison to the thought of matrimony. She leaves her realm for Earth determined to find a loner Dijinn to do the deed. She never imagined running into Shay, and what she would end up feeling was beyond her imagination.

Earth and Water are sworn enemies and the clans suffer because of it. Maya is determined that Shay never discover what she is. Both are hiding secrets that can end the relationship before it begins, plus an unknown enemy plots from within. I enjoyed both Shay and Maya's characters. They were very realistic and will both make excellent rulers. I really enjoyed this wonderful tale! It was a sweet before bedtime read, perfect for sending you off with dreams of happily ever after and sexy Dijinns. Mina was a new author to me, but I guarantee you will see more of her books on here! Fantastic Story!!
