Jezebel's shapeshifting gift breaks every rule in Jinn.

At seventeen, she’s forced to keep it secret or risk having her ability severed, stolen from her completely. Despite the danger, a part of her is desperate to embrace her power.

When Jezebel's friends discover a portal to the human world, she follows them into the strange place, unable to resist the temptation to explore her gift where no one will see.

Except someone does. Someone Jezebel thought she could trust.

His betrayal comes in whispers at first. But all too quickly, those whispers become demands. And he’ll stop at nothing—not even blackmail—to use Jezebel’s power for himself.

One dark decision leads to another, until Jezebel stands to lose something she can’t live without—either her freedom, or her innocence.

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.


The FINAL book in the series, THE ENCHANTED CROWN, wraps up all three stories and is a Sleeping Beauty retelling.

Engaged to a prince, but not queen yet…

The Jinn and the Khaanevaade have fought skirmishes for centuries. But as Jezebel and the Jinni prince begin their engagement tour, the increasing attacks hint at impending war. When they attempt to kidnap the prince, Jezebel gets in the way—and is taken instead.

At first, she hopes to learn the enemies’ secrets. Doing so will allow her to report back to the royal family and show them her worth. But as time passes, her handsome captor surprises Jezebel by being just as remarkable as the prince. Maybe even more so…

When the royal family makes a bargain that cuts her out of the picture completely, she begins to wonder if she truly wants a future with them at all, or if perhaps she wants to carve a new path of her own… with the enemy.

THE SECRET CURSE is the third 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 from The Stolen Kingdom Series, but can also be read on its own. Over a century before the evil Queen Jezebel crosses paths with Arie, Rena, and Nesrin, she’s just an innocent Jinni girl… who was betrayed.
