THE QUEEN'S RISE SERIES
THE SECRET GIFT
WHAT IF THE EVIL QUEEN WAS INNOCENT UNTIL SHE WAS BETRAYED?
In the realm of Jinn, enchantments and magical abilities are conceived and often exploited for personal gain. At seventeen years old, Jezebel has developed a powerful shape-shifting Gift—and she’s determined to keep it a secret to avoid her fugitive mother’s fate.
Following her friends through a portal to the human world, she’s tempted to explore her Gift and test her limits. After all, no one but the humans will see.
But when one of her friends witnesses her ability, he demands she use it for his selfish purposes. He’ll stop at nothing—not even blackmail—to ensure he gets what he wants.
After he crosses a line, putting them both in danger, Jezebel must decide what’s more important: protecting someone else, or keeping her secrets to protect herself.
THE SECRET GIFT is the first book in THE QUEEN’S RISE series, inspired by your favorite villains in Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, and Beauty and the Beast. It’s a spin-off of The Stolen Kingdom series, but can also be read on its own. Over a century before Queen Jezebel crosses paths with Arie, Rena, and Nesrin, she’s just an innocent Jinni girl… who was betrayed.

THE SECRET SHADOW
When another shape-shifter breaks into the castle and threatens the royal family, Jezebel's secret is at risk of being exposed.
Still learning the ropes of the secretive Jinni court, the life of power she's worked so hard for is put in jeopardy as the castle is locked down until the danger is eliminated.
With the Jinni Guard on the hunt for this formidable shape-shifting Gift, it’s only a matter of time before they catch Jezebel instead. If they do, her future with Prince Shem—and all her carefully formed plans—are over.
Jezebel must persuade the prince to buy her time to track down this unknown shape-shifter before the Jinni Guard. If she fails, she’ll have no choice but to flee before the Jinni Guard discovers her hidden abilities and severs them immediately. Or worse.
The Secret Shadow is the second book in The Queen’s Rise series, inspired by your favorite villains in Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, and Beauty and the Beast. Over a century before Queen Jezebel crosses paths with Arie, Rena, and Nesrin, she’s just an innocent Jinni girl… who was betrayed.
