Fifteen year old Dimitri's life changes when his father is murdered, causing him to inherit a family curse.

Twenty-three year old Dimitri has to do what he is told—literally. Controlled by a paranormal bond, he is forced to use his wits to fulfill unlimited deadly wishes made by multimillionaire Karl Walker.

Dimitri has no idea how his family line became trapped in the genie bond. He just knows resisting has never ended well. When he meets Syd—assertive, sexy, intelligent Syd—he becomes determined to make her his own. Except Karl has ensured Dimitri can't tell anyone about the bond, and Syd isn't the type to tolerate secrets.

Then Karl starts sending him away on back-to-back wishes. Unable to balance love and lies, Dimitri sets out to uncover Karl's ultimate plan and put it to an end. But doing so forces him to confront the one wish he never saw coming—the wish that will destroy him.

I dislike having to murder someone. Kidnapping is worse. At least when I setup a kill, I know what's coming. No connections, no honesty, no surprises. Everything I say and do are just steps to luring in my victim. Once the victim falls right into the trap, the next move is swift: crushed windpipe, fatal concussion, or a good ol' fashioned headshot.

Kidnapping, on the other hand, is a little trickier. First, the victim has an opportunity to respond. I don't like this. Sometimes they cry. Sometimes they manage to alert the authorities. And sometimes they escape, usually by inflicting bodily harm on me.

Dead people don't retaliate. Kidnapped ones, well, they're a little more . . . lively.

The second major difference between killing and kidnapping is my conscience. I get in and out with a kill. We have no chance to bond.

Abductees require a little more one-on-one. As much as I try to keep the switch turned off, I can't help but listen to their pleas and demands. And I usually realize I'm a jerk.

That's exactly where I find myself one late afternoon in June. I prefer doing this at night, but moreover, I would prefer not doing this at all.

Instead, I have a belligerent nine year old girl sitting in the passenger seat of my Honda Accord, shackles on her wrists and ankles and a small stuffed bunny on her lap. She's eying me in a way that makes me self-conscious. Like I'm the bad guy.

Probably because I am the bad guy.

LOVED IT!!!!

The story is told solely from Dimitri's point of view. He is HILARIOUS! A very sarcastic sense of humor, that is. He had a lot of one-liners that I wish i had highlighted so that I can incorporate them into my daily life. Guess I'll just have to read the book again and highlight them all :)

Dim is evil, albeit conflicted, and it's that conflict that makes him incredibly like able. Decency would shine through him every now and then, juuuust enough to keep me in his corner the entire time.

Syd is fun. She is incredibly random and quirky. While she wasn't in the story nearly as mich as Dim, I was still her fan for the whole story.

While the story itself was long, the mystery surrounding Dim, and his lack of knowledge about said mystery, kept me turning the pages as more and more got revealed. I can honestly say that I was NOT expecting the ending!

I am happy to see that another book will be coming out in this series. I'm just such a huge fan of Rainy's writing style, that i think I would read anything she writes!

  1. I really loved Summoned so Axiom sounds so interesting. I often wondered about how he dealt with not only losing his Dad but gaining his genie powers!

    1. I agree! I really can't wait to read this to see why Dim because the kind of "person" he did. Thanks for commenting, Heather!
