    • For me, the thing that has always distinguished a great story from a good story is whether or not I can see myself in it. Am I there with the characters, sharing in their experiences, or am I sitting on my couch reading about their experiences? There is a difference. (It’s like the difference between standing beside Mary Poppins looking at the sidewalk drawing, or taking her hand, jumping into it, and riding the carousel horses.) I want to be taken along for the ride; and from the very first p [...]


    • When I was first asked to read and review this book, I was afraid that I would have a hard time being completely honest. I know the author personally and consider her a good friend of mine. Needless to say, I have no problem telling you how much I enjoyed this novel.We start out with a story of Virginia, aka Ginn, and her misfit, chaotic family. She seems normal and as happy as a 13-year-old girl can be. She has normal struggles with her mother’s cooking, her brothers and larger-than-normal bu [...]


    • Filled with magic, curses, and mystery, Heir to the Lamp is a spellbinding journey about a young girl’s path to self-discovery. It’s unique, funny, and enthralling. But as great as the plotline was, it’s the characters are what make the story, particular Ginn, Rushmere, and Caleb.Though still in her pre-teens, Ginn’s not all about her, like I have seen in some other young YA main characters. Actually she was quite a spit-fire when it comes to looking out for her friends and family. And I [...]


    • Originally posted at Worlds AboundHeir to the Lamp starts off with our introduction to Virginia “Ginn” Lawson, a 13 year old girl with a passion for sports and a crazy, eclectic family. After altering the outcome of a basketball game via mental wish, Ginn thinks she’s going crazy. Add on to that weird dreams and a talking rabbit named Rashmere and Ginn knows she needs to get some answers so she turns to her grandmother.Ginn was a pretty relatable protagonist, she likes sports and boys and [...]


    • Heir to the Lamp is an intriguing story of 13 year old Ginn who finds out about her genie heritage on her 13th birthday. Her birth mother leaves a message of warning for her along with a mysterious lamp. As the story unfolds, Ginn comes face to face with that danger and finds out that not only is she growing up but that she is capable of protecting the legacy of her genie ancestors.The author does a wonderful job of describing the lamp and the genie world. I enjoyed the suspense of finding out a [...]


    • Heir to the Lamp was a fast paced and enjoyable read. The editing and format allowed for me speed reading this one as well as the great story line. I loved the characters and the realness Combs gives to them. The main character, Ginn, is only 13, but mature, which I found refreshing. I usually don't read books with a main character younger than 16 because, most of the time, their plight is juvenile. However, Ginn was smart, brash, and resilient. She comes from a dark past, but doesn't dwell on i [...]


    • Heir to the Lamp is Anne Rice meets Harry Potter with delicious writing, a Southern Gothic mystery, and an inventive world that tweens, teens, and the young-at-heart are sure to enjoy!


    • Smart and fun. On the younger end of the YA spectrum, but I'm excited to watch Ginn grow up and come into her own.


    • I have just finished this story about two days ago. This is one of those great stories that I was fortunate to came upon. I found this through World Weaver Press' newsletter. After reading the blurb, my curiosity was piqued so I signed up to review this book. They sent me the first two books in the series. Thank you!Obviously, as suggested by the title, this is about genies or djinns. Aside from the very popular Disney's Alladin, I have only read one other book about djinns (Stone Bearers by Jac [...]


    • Heir To The Lamp by Michelle Lowery Combs is Book One in the Genie Chronicles series. This is a YA Paranormal novel. Quick read. Be careful what you wish for. There is also a sneak peek of Book Two, Solomon's Bell.





    • I got this E-book free as I won the 2nd book in The early Reviewers (On LibraryThing) (So thought it would be nice to leave a review for this book also).A really fascinating story about a 13yr old girl named Virginia aka Ginn finding out about her Genie Heritage, A really quick read with lots of action and adventure with wizards, Spells and travelling to other continents that draw you in.Would recommend to young adults or young at heart that likes adventure, Genies, Spells and the like.


    • This smart, funny YA fantasy book introduces a spunky heroine, her large and affectionate family, and a terrific alternate universe of djinn, imps, and magical spirits.On her thirteenth birthday, Ginn wants to win a basketball game and get a cell phone. Both her wishes come true, but with rather unexpected consequences. Soon she's unravelling a mystery involving a beautiful lamp, an evil order of magicians and her own birth mother, (who turns out to be much more than Ginn had originally imagined [...]


    • Magic melded with contemporary teenage life, complicated by an oversized family; this is YA fantasy Big Mac style! And with an extra large order of humor on the side. It's obvious Michelle Lowery Combs writes with experience when it comes to the over abundance of chaos and love found in a large family, but she also nails the voice of 13 year old Ginn, who's snarky sense of humor and emerging confidence keep the pages turning at a wild pace. And she brings the ancient legend of the Djinn to life [...]


    • Virginia loves her close family made up of her parent's biological and adopted children. She is the only girl among the five and was adopted at an early age. She is a star on her basketball team and is looking forward to celebrating her 13th birthday. However, she is surprised when every thing that she really wishes for on her birthday comes to pass. She is especially amazed and bemused when she clearly remembers missing the winning basket during her game but everyone is congratulating her on th [...]


    • I loved this book! It's a quick read, but it sticks with you. Though it has a large cast of characters, the author does a great job of bringing them all to life. Ginn's love of basketball and her relationship to her adoptive family made her easy to relate to. I've had the privilege of a sneak peak at the sequel, and I can vouch that it's even more fun. ;-)


    • This is a heart warming story of a young teen girl trying to learn all she can about her new found heritage. Very good storyline. Loved it!! Can't wait for the next novel!


    • I loved it! Good story, well thought out. Genies have been lacking in fantasy literature. I can't wait for the next book.




    • I won this book as a First Reads.Good book. Enjoyable story about Ginn discovering she is a djinn. Great for middle schoolers.
