I'd forgotten that Kingdom is really a different planet. I'm not sure how believable that really is, but this is paranormal/fantasy fiction so some suspension of disbelief is required. That said, it bugs me anyway. My idea at first was that Kingdom is a parallel dimension to our own. How did the Hatter get there to begin with, if Kingdom is a different planet? He was completely human once, so it doesn't make a lot of sense. And I'm reading too much into this. It's fiction, let it go! It's still going to bug me.
Now that the mini rant is done, I liked this one more than I expected to. It's instant love again, but that's not surprising since this one is just over 100 pages long. I expected Jinni to be more stubborn than even Hatter was, since Jinni's been just waiting to die for hundreds of years, although we never find out how many.
I was really worried about that whole she has to die thing, but Paz doesn't die. She does come close but she never really dies. I really expected her to have to die to meet Jinni at all since he's basically a ghost by this point in the series. Glad she didn't really have to, but still.
I'm wondering what Jinni was doing for that year that he and Paz weren't together. I think that it took him and Danika some time to get him put back together, but a year seems like a long time. What would have happened if Paz had died in that time? Not that I really expected her to, but she could have. She wasn't even sure he was alive and no one told her that he could use the golem to have a body again. I kind of loved Richard being all suspicious, some guy has just popped up in his sister's apartment claiming to be her fiancee. I'd be suspicious, too! I wonder how they are going to explain everything?
