Tribal Affairs ~ Review with Giveaway

Tribal Affairs
By Matt Dallmann

She thought she was losing her mind ~ that she was seeing things. But the truth was even more unbelievable ~ Liana unknowingly has connected herself to a genie. This genie has been trapped for generations in the charm of an anklet that once belonged to Liana's mother. And now Liana is about to discover the truth she knew is not the truth that is.

When Liana decides to claim the anklet as her own to wear she unwittingly triggers a chain of events which upend her life and everything she believed was true. Soon she finds herself caught up in a centuries-old conflict between two powerful tribes of genies. And Liana's only hope of understanding exactly what is happening to her lies with a young genie who is partially responsible for the whole mess she now finds herself in.

But can Liana trust Taffi with her life and her heart? Or will he prove a true son of his father and an enemy to Liana and her family?

But this is more than Liana's story as Dahlia's story is told as well. Who is Dahlia you ask. She is the genie that has been trapped within the locket which Liana is wearing. And Liana and Dahlia's stories are told in an alternating fashion until they come together in a climactic conclusion.

If you are a fan of fantasy and like it clean this is a book you'll want to pick up and enjoy. Though marketed to the YA reader I feel any fantasy fan 13 or 14 and up will enjoy this book. The pacing doesn't drag and the action and danger is a steadily building force throughout. And the author's ability to draw all these threads together comes to a satisfying story that ends in a way so that the reader is not left with any unanswered questions.

I was provided a review copy of this book by the author with no expectations of a positive review ~ All opinions expressed are my own.
