Lizzy Gayle: Welcome Leela! Make yourself comfortable.
Leela: I always do, thank you.
Lizzy Gayle: Please introduce yourself so everyone knows who you are:
Leela: My name is Leela and I am Djinn. *eyes glow green*
Lizzy Gayle: Should people be afraid of you?
Leela: Only if they mean me harm or wish to take possession of me. So for most humans? Yes, fear me.
Lizzy Gayle: I don’t think most humans mean you harm.
Leela: *laughs* So naïve.
Lizzy Gayle: *shifts uncomfortably* Okay then, what would you do if someone tried to trap you and make you grant wishes?
Leela: Hmm…there are so many wonderful options. Taj likes turning humans into snakes and other creatures. Mira tends to blow things up. I suppose I’m not as messy, so I might trap them instead or just kill them. It depends on my mood.
Lizzy Gayle: Consider us warned. What do you want out of life, Leela?
Leela: I want to be left alone as a free Djinni.
Lizzy Gayle: Sounds simple enough. But alone?
Leela: If there is such a thing as real love, I’d be happy to experience it, but I doubt its existence. I loved once. That’s what got me into this mess.
Lizzy Gayle: I may not be a magical genie—
Lizzy Gayle: Right. I may not be a magical Djinni, but I am an author and I’m going to promise you something. You may go through a LOT, but you will be satisfied with the ending of The Binding Stone. And whoever reads it will enjoy the journey with you.
Leela: If I don’t get my Happily Ever After I will come back and imprison you in a diamond. *eyes glow*
Lizzy Gayle: HEA it is!
A thousand years of servitude has left Leela more than a little jaded. Betrayal by the man she loved was just the beginning of her lessons on the wickedness of humanity. Her hope for freedom for herself and her fellow Djinn from the stones that bind them has dimmed to a barely-there glimmer over all these years, but it hasn’t yet extinguished.
When the handsome and idealistic Jered inadvertently becomes her new master, Leela finds herself wondering if his tenderness and concern may actually be real. And despite her years of suffering and lessons, her heart opens to new possibilities.
As she inches closer to trusting Jered, the past and the enemies that come with it, resurface, threatening the small spark of happiness in Leela’s long life.
After a millennium of suffering what and who is Leela willing to sacrifice for freedom?

"I thoroughly enjoyed THE BINDING STONE (The Djinn Book 1) by Lizzy Gayle. What a fun, fast-paced, page-turner of a book! Leela and Jered are compelling main characters, and the supporting cast of friends, allies, and enemies keeps the story fresh and interesting. The flashbacks to Leela's long and difficult past perfectly compliment the main storyline. I can't wait for Book 2!" -- Lisa Edmonds, Best-Selling Urban Fantasy Author of the Alice Worth Series
