About the Fire Spirit series

Light and Dark cannot exist without the other. Ari Johnson knows this. She has seen both elements battle for supremacy within her family and within the boy she loves. But on her eighteen birthday, after her friends surprise her with a gimmick genie claiming to grant wishes, Ari witnesses the brightest of lights and the blackest of darks. Within our world, and all the others, exist Jinn. Powerful beings of smokeless fire – beings Ari cannot escape…

One terrifying king.
One overprotective, arrogant young guardian.
One uncle whose loyalties are suspect.
And Azazil: Sultan of all Jinn.

…Ari has no idea who she can trust. When the truth burns through her life in its determination to turn it to ashes, Ari will have to battle with ancient deadly creatures, epic family drama and heart-wrenching romantic entanglements.
It’s time… to fear the heat…

Borrowed Ember (Fire Spirits #3)About Borrowed Ember - Goodreads, Amazon, B&N

Everything in Ari’s life until this point has felt borrowed.

Her human life with a father who wasn’t really hers.

A love for a boy that 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 that may mean his death. 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 fixable. That finally Ari will truly own the relationships in her life and to a certain extent have ownership over her future.

For some reason Ari forgot it wasn’t up to her.

That 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.

Darkness, Kindled (Fire Spirits #4)Coming November 23rd Darkness, Kindled - Goodreads

Ari Johnson wishes adjusting to living with her boyfriend was her only source of excitement and anxiety.

She wishes a lot of things.

But then wishing was what got her here in the first place.

Ari chose to be a Guild Hunter. She wanted to stalk dangerous Jinn and destroy them before they could harm innocent people. But now that Ari is a member of The Guild, she finds herself in the impossible position of hunting her ex-best friend – human-turned-dangerous sorcerer, Charlie Creagh. As Ari struggles to come to terms with her duty, an ancient Jinn and his companion want revenge on her for using the command of the Seal against them; the White King refuses to give up on his quest to resurrect Lilif, and Asmodeus isn’t done toying with her.

When Ari can take no more, rushing to the Sultan Azazil’s side to demand of him the favor he owes her, the events she sets in motion will not only alter everyone’s lives, it will kindle a darkness that will shake the realms to their very core.

Charlie Creagh Character Bio:

Charlie Creagh was a typical guy. He had a normal family including his little brother, Mike, who he considered one of his best friends. His other best friend, Ari Johnson, had quickly become something more and they were on their road to Relationshipville. School was good. Life was good.

Then Mike was killed in a car accident. Charlie was driving. Fast forward two years and Charlie Creagh is a slacker, drug taker, drunk on school days, throwing his life away in shame, anger and guilt kind of guy. Only Ari refuses to give up on him, and when her life gets flipped upside down and they discover that genies are real, Charlie also discovers the disturbing truth behind Mike’s death, a new addiction to the world of the Jinn, and renewed interest in making Ari more than just a friend. All he needs is to discover a way to be more useful in keeping her alive, and also in kicking the ass of the macho guardian Jinn, Jai, who’s turned his best friend’s head. Asshat.
