    One thought on “Released”

    1. I received a free copy of Released by Mia Fox in exchange for an honest review.When I first read the blurb of Released I was drawn by the series name Romani Realms & of course, the types of supernatural beings featured - Genie & Demon Gypsies.Suzette "Suki" as a protagonist was old-fashioned & sweet, despite her too kind a heart & helpless ability that really sets her apart from the typicality of being a Genie, she was believable with an ability to make one relate to her in both [...]

    2. Released by debut author Mia Fox is brilliantly witty, charming and fresh! Remember the tale of the genie in the bottle who must grant three wishes to the person who releases them, you know, when the big genie with the turban and crossed arms kind of smokes out of the bottle? Well, forget that guy, Suki, is anything but the stereotypical genie and hot on her tail is her an ex-friend on a mission of revenge! This genie has style, a quirky attitude and has kept up on the world throughout the years [...]

    3. The first book the the Romani Realms trilogy starts out fast. Suki is a genie, trapped in her bottle and awaiting her next released. Charlotte and Samantha are two teenage girls, best friends and Suki's next Releasors. Raven, Suki's ex best friend, will stop at nothing to destroy them all, once and for all.I received this book through Netgalley, though I have just now gotten around to reading it. I enjoyed the unique story line as there are not many books written about genies or gypsies these da [...]

    4. I'm still slightly mystified by how many good reviews Released by Mia Fox got. Don't get me wrong; a genie a bottle is always intriguing. And this genie isn't one who gives out just any three wishes to any person on the block. Suki helps people who are destined for greatness. She acts as their guide, and only when they make unselfish wishes will she go back into the bottle for the next person to find. That being said, Suki annoyed me. She had this weird Southern accent going on which does not tr [...]

    5. ARC REVIEWThis is Mia Fox Debut Novel, The Romani Realms Series is a Trilogy with RELEASED being the first book in this series.And look at the Cover it's just beautiful. My first thought is Holds up a big sign with flashing words saying. If you’re looking for something a little unique and different from what you have been reading lately then this wondrous book is for you.This book is so good and so different you get entranced from the first page till the last this is one you can't put down til [...]

    6. *Review copy granted via netgalley in exchange for an honest review*I never abandon a book once I've started reading it. It's my rule. I will finish every book I start to read but it might take me a while depending on how the book goes. This book took me weeks (ok, it was actually months) to read. A book this length I could easily finish in a day if I found it interesting enough but by the time I hit around a quarter of the way through I was forcing myself to read a chapter or so every so often [...]

    7. I had the pleasure and privilage to have beta read this book for Mia Fox. I have also read an ARC of the book and wanted to share my review here. Mia is a new author and has written a really creative and interesting story! I have read many many paranormal romances but, none about a genie!!!! This book is classified as YA but, doesn't have to be just for the younger gen readers! The characters Ms. Fox has created are very believeable and likeable. The main character, Suki, is quirky and funny. Ms [...]

    8. Released is a fantasy novel.I read this book because my friend was reading it and I wanted to read it with her.The main plot is for the main character, Suki, to understand why her Releasors had Released her, and also to stop her enemies, Raven and Phineas, from getting what they wanted.I liked Suki because she's really protective and is a Genie. She got along really well with the other characters in the book, and didn't keep her past secret. I didn't like Suki because she always believed she kne [...]

    9. Genies are real, all you have to do is believe in them.Suki became a genie in order to save her life after her husband got bored with her. For centuries she is unleashed onto a new releaser until her time to go back into her bottle. She's seen the entire world because of this. Now, here in 2013 she is released to two average teenage girls. That was until something out of the ordinary happened. From there it's a tale of survival, love, and adventures for Suki and the two high school girls that re [...]

    10. I was given the unique opportunity to beta read this new book by Mia Fox. I gotta say I immediately fell in love with it! The story is a fresh new take on the genie "fairy tale." I'm always looking for interesting plots and well-developed characters in my stories. Released has an exciting combination of both that just keeps you reading and reading. I can't wait to see what happens in book two of this series! Fun work from an up-and-coming author!

    11. This was a really enjoyable book. I can't remember the last time I got so hooked from the first chapter that I could not put the book down until the end. Time travel, romance, history, forbidden attraction, the threat of demon gypsies and the quest to control destiny are only some of the obstacles Suki - a three hundred year old genie has to contend with in her effort to grant her releasors' wishes. Suki's friendship and loyalties are tested by her attraction to her protector James. It is refres [...]

    12. After thinking this through, I've decided on giving Released 3.5 stars. While I really enjoyed the book, there were a few aspects of it that were confusing, annoying, and frustrating. Allow me to explain.Possible spoilers!Exhibit A: Suki's POV This is the first genie story I've read in quite some time. And what really had me excited was that, instead of the book being in the Releasors point of view, it was instead in the genie's. The general concept of Suki's powers and story was well-thought ou [...]

    13. I was blessed with a free copy of this book, and have chosen of my own volition to share this review.I truly wanted to rate this book higher, but had some trouble following the story line. I felt like it jumped about a bit too much to keep track of where and when the characters were. The premise of the story is strong, and I am interested in seeing what happens with Suki in the next story. The book kept grabbing my attention, and then loosing me.

    14. *I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review*Suki is a Genie and is released from her bottle by two teenage girls just as her oldest enemy arrives in town seeking to destroy the three of them before they can fulfil an ancient prophecy. I wanted to like this book because I loved the idea of it and I don't see too many Genie or Djinn novels around, so I wanted to read this. Sadly it fell way below expectations on too many levels and it was [...]

    15. I received Released in return for an honest review as part of the tour hosted by B3 Tours. Suzette known as Suki is a Genie in a bottle and has been for centuries. In the past she has inspired men to do great things now she’s been released by two teenage girls who are being stalked by Suki’s enemy Raven and her partner. As Suki attempts to figure out why the girls are special Raven and Phineas try to lure them away so that they can steal the powerful amulet.Both Charlotte and Samantha may be [...]

    16. Released by Mia FoxPrint Length: 315 pagesPage Numbers Source ISBN: 162378087XPublisher: Evatopia Press (April 9, 2013)I bought this book from amazon.Warning- some mature scenes are written inside this book.My Review~I adore the cover! It is beautiful! This was an amazing fast paced read that is full of magic, romance, unrequited love, danger, suspense, and intrigue. I love the unique take on genies and their magical abilities. I also love that the author done a lot of research in writing this n [...]

    17. It's a story about a genie and her two masters who hide out from two gypsies who want vengeance, so it has a great premise but not so much on the writing portion. If the book has been edited, then that's great. I bought this a year or two back and its on my list of to-do's to finish reading. If not, I like to lend my opinion on what the story needs for it to be engaging and easy to flow through.First, Suki, the genie, tends to tell a lot of the past and instead of showing it. I wouldn't mind if [...]

    18. This book was provided by the publisher via Netgalley. Thank you.Unfortunately this wasn't my type of book. I was attracted by the story. So far I'd never read about genies. But "Released" wasn't able to deliver what it had promised.All in all it felt very much like a "first novel", that needs some more editing.Be aware of some minor spoilers from the first chapters of the book!In the beginning we get to know Suki, a genie in a bottle who feels that she's about to released soon. The story is tol [...]

    19. Released by Mia Fox is a NA paranormal story about a Genie name Suzette. Suzette, who likes to be called Suki, has served many distinguished and notable gentleman throughout history. But this time, she is released by 2 high school girls - Charlotte & Sam. With her release, she realizes that Charlotte & Sam are being targeted by 2 demon gypsies, Raven & Phineas.The story concept was interesting and had some unique ideas. The idea that Suki is a genie who will only grant selfless wishe [...]

    20. A copy of this book was provided to me by the publisher Indie Inked, on exchange for an honest review. My biggest problem with this book was the beginning. It was really slow and just didn't captivate me. I had to force myself to read it, and almost DNF multiple times. The only reason I didn't was because a friend told me it got better and because the last 3 or 4 e-arcs have been DNF and I felt guilty. The main character, Suzette (Suki) is a genie about to be released from her bottle by a pair o [...]

    21. This is a difficult review to write because on one hand I loved the idea of the story, there were many things to like. On the other hand there were so many things that confused me, that a book that could have been four or five stars ultimately only received three.The story is fun. Suki is a Genie that is released from her bottle by two seemingly ordinary teenage girls. I loved the twist on the current teen fantasy genre that led to a Genie being the main character. This was a very fun story with [...]

    22. Review of Released3.5 Stars (1st Review for July)reviewoffantasyI was given this book by the author for an honest review.Released intrigued me as it was based on a genie in a bottle, but it wasn’t your usual “rub the bottle and you shall be granted three wishes”. The genie in the bottle was named Suki, when someone was destined for great things Suki just helped them take the right steps in order to achieve their goals. When the wishes are used for unselfish reasons she leaves and returns t [...]

    23. The book Released by Mia Fox was a very good book. It was about these two teenage girls who found this bottle in a store and it didn't just look like a normal bottle. The bottle was very pretty it had a butterfly on it and it was the color blue. It caught the girls attention because they have never seen a bottle like this before. They had no clue that there was a genie inside of the bottle until one day. The two girls names are Samantha and Charlotte, they are in high school, and have been best [...]

    24. I had to grin during the first chapter – honestly Ms. Fox could have been describing my best friend from high school and me! Cheryl Caliguiri had fire red hair and an avant garde style, while I was white-blonde and conservative, yet we were completely inseparable! In this book, it is Samantha who had the fire red hair, and her best friend with the straight blonde hair is Charlotte. That was enough to hook me into this story. While Sam was browsing through the racks of a local thrift store in s [...]

    25. Samantha and Charlotte are two teenage girls with huge crushes on boys in the high school "IT" crowd, which they are not a part of. The girls have their attention, but can't keep it, not to mention the boys have girlfriends. Both girls want to fit in, but do so without losing themselves or turning superficial. During a trip to a thrift store, they find a beautiful bottle with a butterfly on it. It's no typical bottle though. A 300 year old genie name Suzette, or Suki, is awaiting being release t [...]

    26. I was given the opportunity to read Released, by Mia Fox, through Netgalley for reviewing purposes.I was interested in the concept of this book because you don't find too many good genie books (or I haven't). I'm still not sure how I feel about the book, or if I'll be reading the next book in the series.There's just so much that I really don't know what to type out for a review. The genie, Suzette -Suki-, is motherly protective and wants to be friends with (not one) but two releasers. Two teenag [...]

    27. For some reason I haven't come across very many books about Gen, in fact, I have only come across one other in the YA genre (but I don't actively seek them out either) so I went into this one hoping for something completely different and fun and hopefully just as equally entertaining.Okay, and the cover whore in me loved the colors and softness of the cover so of course I had to pick it up.I got way more than I bargained for that is for sure! Gypsy demons, curses, amulets, black magic, adventure [...]

    28. Recommended for: Young adults (and those of us who just think we're still young)I had to grin during the first chapter – honestly Ms. Fox could have been describing my best friend from high school and me! Cheryl Caliguiri had fire red hair and an avant garde style, while I was white-blonde and conservative, yet we were completely inseparable! In this book, it is Samantha who had the fire red hair, and her best friend with the straight blonde hair is Charlotte. That was enough to hook me into t [...]

    29. This book had great potential. I loved the concept of a genie, but with a twist. The idea that the genie influenced, but didn't grant whatever was requested was good given who she was dealing with. The fact that her influence led to a wide array of talented and famous people with some tragic results was actual pretty twisted yet human. Suki's background and how she told snippets of her past at times was great, but also had me a little baffled about her actual relationship with her past releasers [...]
