Popular Ebook Smokeless Fire 1 very generous star. This book got a lot of five stars and enthusiastic commendation. I delved in expecting to like the book. I mean, it's about Jinn—something that I haven't read about yet! So why such a low rating? What is wrong with me? I know, I’m sorry. But I was so very annoyed with this book that only the catharsis of expelling my frustration into this review could give me some peace.There were so many problems with this book. From the editing, the sluggish plot, lack of credible myth building, and character un-development, the book got worse and worse as I turned the pages. SynopsisThere are beings called Jinn in the world, and Ari, our protagonist, is somehow related to their existence. Of course, Ari does not know about Jinn until her 18th birthday, when she gets a surprise visit from one of the Jinn. The rest of the story revolves around Ari coming to terms with her own destiny while dealing with teenage problems typical to YA novels: estranged relationship with parents; dealing with a friend who's lost his path; and of course the irrevocable love triangle.A fairly interesting concept, right? But wait. Here are some of the major problems I encountered:1. Annoying protagonist: When we are first introduced to Ari, she’s portrayed as a lonely yet caring girl. She lives with a detached father whose business takes him away from his daughter months at a time. Ari’s only solace is a close childhood friend who has spiraled down into a dark depression filled with drugs, alcohol, and sex after the death of his brother. At first, I sympathized with Ari’s constant efforts to get things back under control, especially since the two men in her life keep pushing her away. But here’s the thing: despite all of Ari’s efforts, they still hurt her purposely, and you know what? She repeatedly takes their crap. To top it off, she lashes out at other people and emotionally hurts them after suffering such numerous setbacks. My reaction towards Ari's reactions slipped very quickly from sympathy, to disbelief, to annoyance, and finally to wanting to pound her face in. For example (one of many, really), Ari has a huge crush on Charlie and so deep in love is she that she keeps taking his crap after (1) dragging him out of his druggie friends’ house only to have him crawl back for another high; (2) demanding that he get a medical exam to ensure he’s STD free—yes, he is THAT much of a manwhore; and (3) catching him having sex on her dad’s bed during her birthday party. That Ari not only opens her arms for the creep but also continues to be his emotional crutch and whipping post after all of that astounds me. Even worse, despite her complaints about how lonely she is, she basically abandons her friends again and again to be with Charlie. 2. Hazy myth building: Jinn are beings not dealt with much in paranormal YA, and while I could see veritable effort in creating a new Jinn mythos, there were too many gaping holes in it for me to be convinced. The concept of different classes of Jinn was interesting, especially since the Seven Kings hold dominion not over land, but over a day of the week. Talk about separation of power! But unlike our executive, legislative, and judicial branches of government, the Jinn system does not allow for any interaction among the kings and conflict arises from the strict need to keep dominions separated. However, the author’s way of streamlining this Jinn myth into the real world was highly unoriginal and unrealistic. Mainly, the magic system is, well, omnipotent:“Jai insisted that she use her magic for everyday things. He said there was no one muscle that needed to be worked, no inner power that had to be tapped into or explored. It was all about believing. It was as simple as that. Ari had to believe that if she wanted a glass of water that she could conjure it. Or a bag of chips.”Wait, what? All you have to do is believe and thou shalt receive? No tradeoffs? No consequences? No going to school to hone your magical abilities? So, if you believe in a billion dollars, a private island, and an endless supply of pina coladas, it will happen? Granted, the money and the island must come from somewhere, but for one person to have such a power with little limitations is unbelievable. Ari’s own unique powers, which I won’t spoil, reach even more preposterous heights. All I can say is, Ari, girl, just take over the freaking world already because you are more than capable of doing so. 3. Sluggish plot: After the birthday party, things slowed down considerably. While there were some minor developments, things came to a standstill until her jaunt to Roswell, New Mexico. (view spoiler)[Isn’t Ari assigned a guardian because she is in danger of being kidnapped? Why is no one trying to attack her or harass her? Why did I just read an hour’s worth of her personal drama with Jai next to her, doing nothing but reading? (hide spoiler)]4. Quality control: I realize that the author is independently published, but this book needs serious editing. The language was very colloquial. There are better ways to display your character’s frustration than making them call someone an asshat or douchebag. Because, frankly, it sounds very juvenile. I understand teens say dumb shit, but seeing this in dialogue over and over again really made the characters unlikable. Overall, I was frustrated with this novel. It has potential and an interesting premise. But the characters and plot were very under developed. Maybe this novel is intended for the younger audience, but I found everything overly simplistic and without substantial direction. 1 star and not recommended at all.

  • All I can say is read this book It was amazing One of the things I noticed a couple other reviewers said was that the beginning of this book was slow I got in touch with Samantha because I wanted to tell her this myself and I will say it here it wasn t slow at all, it was necessary detail and back ground information that was heart wrenching and at times even made it difficult to breath because you felt Ari s need to help the guy she loved even though he continually hurts her It s a frustrating s [...]

  • MY RATING 4 Hearts I would like to thank Samantha Young for providing an e copy of the book, and giving me an opportunity to review it D Usually when you hear YA paranormal romance book , the first things that come to mind are vampires, werewolves, witches, warlocks, angels and demons But hardly ever do readers come across Jinns Yes, you heard meJINNS I don t know what I was expecting when reading Smokeless Fire, but it definitely wasn t a world so brilliantly created by Ms Young The original co [...]


  • First off this has been on my kindle for over a year WTH I am such an idiot I have to say it took me a good bit to get into this but once I did I was totally hooked.The world building is what confused me the most The concept was a new interesting one for me but trying to work out who everyone was why they were had my head spinning for a little bit and stopped me from getting totally lost in it.But I persevered and I am so glad I did As with all of Young s character s the female leads are strong [...]


  • I took a gamble on this 99cents kindle read because the concept sounded unique YA novels about vampires, faeries, and werewolves are a dime a dozen But Jinn I didn t even know what a Jinn was They re basically like genies supernatural creatures in Arab folklore and Islamic teachings that occupy a parallel world to that of mankind from So yeah, that seemed like a really fresh concept to me, and I was excited to delve into some world building that I haven t seen done anywhere else As with most sel [...]

  • Review taken from my YA book blog Little Paper Rose I will alert for start end of spoilers.Before Smokeless Fire I had no knowledge about the Jinn mythology so this was all extremely new to me Getting to learn about the story and the history of the Jinn very much from scratch has been interesting as well as exhausting I experienced the first half of Smokeless Fire to be jam packed with information and explanation At some point I felt like I was practically studying about Jinn, and that just gets [...]

  • Samantha Young seriously has an amazing gift with writing Her ability to mix real mythology with her own creativity is fantastic She hasn t written a book that I haven t loved and Smokeless Fire did not disappoint Where to begin, oh where to begin.First off, let me start with that the world of Jinn aka Genies is freaking awesome Her ability to describe the kings and their world with such extravagant minutiae is astounding I literally re read several parts of the description to make sure my mind [...]


  • While I wanted to like this, because the whole plot is an interesting concept, when I actually read it I was pretty underwhelmed The problem was the author s portrayal of the main character I simply did not like Ari It started when Ari described herself as knowing she was pretty and knew she could look good no matter what It s that sort of thing that just peeves me off Charlie was a character who I felt sympathy for but he just kind of lacked personality Then his behaviour at the end despicable [...]

  • I hated it If my rating doesn t speak for itself The worst aspect of the book was the protagonist I can understand that some people might like the masochistic pain of waiting for a boy who sleeps around, does drugs and drinks, while she herself remains a virgin, good girl and what not, but I for one am so sick and tired of this recurring plot.This book has completely turned me off YA novels I am going to lay off the YA angst until I find a book s whose description completely awes me, like the Hu [...]


  • Of course five stars I ve read alot of different books about avariety of mythical creatures, but never much about the jinn After reading Smokeless Fire, I m really wondering why that is Poking around on, the whole Middle Eastern Mesopotamian mythology that lies at the foundation of this series is fascinating, rich with wonderful depth and possibility for amyriad of stories In the Fire Spirits series, Samantha Young has imaginatively and successfully taken advantage of this particular void in the [...]

  • celebrityreaders.wordpress3 stars Generally meh It had a slow beginning, and there was a lot of info dumping which I guess kind of had to happen given the whole world that Ms Young was creating, but it was still a little dry and there was a LOT to keep track of The writing was ok, and I m somewhat curious about what s going on with the Sultan and the 7 Kings, b c there s a lot of mystery and machinations going on there, but quite honestly it just wasn t enough to make me want to finish the serie [...]
