Summary: (from goodreads) Everything in Ari’s life until this point has been borrowed. Her human life with a man who wasn't her real father.
A love for a boy who needed more than her to be strong.
Kisses with a Jinn who refused to do anything but lend them out in moments of weakness.
And even her resolve, which seemed to fail her whenever she needed it most.

But Ari is done borrowing. She finally feels strong enough to make hunting Jinn not just a hobby to get her through her dismal situation, but to make hunting a permanent and necessary career. Her friendship with Charlie might finally make it onto real and steady ground if only she can save him from the trial on Mount Qaf. And her love for Jai could be eternal, if only she could gain control over the darkness of the Seal within her.

Ari believes all of this is doable. That finally she will truly own the relationships in her life and to a certain extent have ownership over her future.

But none of that matters when it isn't up to her…

…For high in the emerald mountains of Mount Qaf, the Sultan Azazil has been keeping secrets.
Even from the Jinn Kings.
Secrets that will change everything… and bring Ari to the crashing realization that once again…

… she’s borrowed something that will never truly belong to her.

Something that is desperate to be unleashed.
Something that could destroy them all.

For more action, drama, twisted wishes, passionate romance and dark kings… pick up a copy of Borrowed Ember, the third installment in the Fire Spirits series.

Coming Summer 2012!

Borrowed Ember is the 3rd book in her Fire Spirits series and let me tell you, you will not be disappointed. The Fire Spirits series is about the world of Jinns or Genies. Borrowed Ember picks up right where Scorched Skies left off. I love the fact that Samantha gives us different POVs - and that to me, takes talent. Something that Samantha is definitely NOT LACKING. This girl kicks butt! Samantha takes us further into Ari, Jai and Charlie's journey. We get to meet new characters and learn more about the previous ones. Secrets are revealed and hearts will be broken. It's amazing how I can feel like I am in the Jinn world. This series is the first that I have read that is about genies, and I am in love. The way that Samantha writes and describes everything makes you feel like you are actually living the same moments the characters are. Simply breath taking. I just wish I had the next book, Darkness, Kindled so I can start devouring it right away because the ending of Borrowed Ember left me hungry for more. It’s a good thing that its due this Fall or else I wouldn’t know what I would do.

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, take my advice and start reading this amazing series. I PROMISE you that you will NOT be disappointed.
