Description


"Lush, romantic, and exquisitely written . . . a rare, glittering jewel of a novel."—Sarah J. Maas, author of the New York Times bestselling Throne of Glass series

"This is Aladdin like you've never imagined."—Renée Ahdieh, author of The Wrath and the Dawn

She is the most powerful Jinni of all. He is a boy from the streets. Their love will shake the world. . . .
 
When Aladdin discovers Zahra's jinni lamp, Zahra is thrust back into a world she hasn't seen in hundreds of years—a world where magic is forbidden and Zahra's very existence is illegal. She must disguise herself to stay alive, using ancient shape-shifting magic, until her new master has selected his three wishes. 


 
But when the King of the Jinn offers Zahra a chance to be free of her lamp forever, she seizes the opportunity—only to discover she is falling in love with Aladdin. When saving herself means betraying him, Zahra must decide once and for all: is winning her freedom worth losing her heart?
 
As time unravels and her enemies close in, Zahra finds herself suspended between danger and desire in this dazzling retelling of the Aladdin story from acclaimed author Jessica Khoury.

Praise For…


"Lush, romantic, and exquisitely written--The Forbidden Wish is a rare, glittering jewel of a novel. I was captivated from the very first sentence and never wanted it to end! Absolutely stellar--and utterly unforgettable."
--Sarah J. Maas, Author of the NEW YORK TIMES Bestselling THRONE OF GLASS series
 
The Forbidden Wish reminded me of all that I love about the story of Aladdin, now told through the eyes of a narrator who is as human and flawed as she is powerful and cunning. Add to that a compelling new romance and I found myself adoring this tale immensely, from beginning to end.” —Marissa Meyer, NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author of CINDER and THE LUNAR CHRONICLES

The Forbidden Wish has everything you’d hope for in a retelling of the Aladdin story—hanging-by-your-fingertips danger, palace intrigue, a dark villain, forbidden love, a swashbuckling hero, and a feisty, dagger-eyed princess, and yet each richly written chapter in this thrilling adventure story is full of unexpected surprises. I was utterly absorbed from the first page!”
--Colleen Houck, Author of the NEW YORK TIMES Bestselling TIGER'S CURSE series

"This is Aladdin like you've never imagined. Filled with unexpected twists and turns reminiscent of a magic carpet ride, Jessica Khoury's The Forbidden Wish is a must-read for anyone who loves a fantastic story."
--Renée Ahdieh, author of THE WRATH AND THE DAWN
