Marek is the Chakera of Djinn, that of emotion,
but because of an incident that emotionally injured him, he has not
been able to do his job or even help himself. In a last desperate
gasp to help Marek, his family has exiled him on Earth and he has
the two weeks until Yule to either find his way back or risk all he
knows among the Chakera of Djinn. Tahra Balhan is a mortal that the
fates have marked as His One. Tahra loves Marek, but she knows that
until he gets back on the correct path Marek will never be the man
she loves. Tahra, agreeing with Marek’s family, leaves him without
a true explanation.
Marek is now stranded on Earth and he is
determined to not only find what he lost, but to get Tahra back in
his arms. The clock is ticking for Marek, can he find the answers
to handling his emotions and reunite with Tahra in time?
Deck the Djinn is a wonderful
feel-good book. It travels the path of Marek as he discovers how to
deal with the overwhelming guilt he has felt for many, many years.
Marek just allowed himself to drift with a depression until he was
faced with losing everything. I loved the mixture of species that
intermixed and added depth within Deck the Djinn.
Without giving too much away, I will say that where and how Marek
found his answers was exactly right, especially during the Yule
season. I highly recommend Deck the Djinn as a loving
and emotional story that you will want to read anytime of the year.
