Magical ParableThis is the second story I've read by Talia Haven and the work still impresses me. Short stories are often harder to write as the writer must write a complete story, and this is one of those stories.

It does come across as a folk tale or parable and does seem to provide a lesson, not just to A'dab but the reader as well. The story does feel like it's just the beginning and lets hope there is more t [...]
This is a quick easy read for middle-grade children. It's a unique look at the first "genie in a bottle." Some of it is a bit violent and dark, so parents might want to read it first before handing it to a child. While it a great short story as it is, I can see a novel or even a series of novels written from this idea. I think it would be fascinating to learn more about A'dab and her adventures.**I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my o [...]
