Son of the Salt Chaser

Saalim, now a king, pursues revenge against the invaders who murdered his family while the forgotten Emel, her beloved's memory of her stolen by her own desert-transforming wish, travels to his kingdom by the sea to reclaim what was lost.
Freedom is never free.
Emel and Saalim are both finally free, but their freedom came at a cost: Emel’s freeing wish caused Saalim to lose any memory of her.
Now remembering his life before he was a jinni, Saalim crosses the desert to Madinat Almulih to reclaim his royal seat and seek revenge on those who killed his family. Emel follows, but life in the mysterious seaside city is not how Emel imagined it would be.
Far from her desert tent and far from Saalim, the comforts of her past life as an ahira and the pull of finding happiness elsewhere tempts Emel away from the life she dreamed of. Emel and Saalim soon discover that the people of Madinat Almulihi are not what they seem. Dark threats lurk in the shadows, and magic may once again be the only power to save them—or destroy them both.
