Wistful YA: Meet the Djinni Leela from THE BINDING STONE

Waking up without your body must have really sucked.

Title: the Binding Stone (Book One In The Djinn Series)
Author: Lisa Gail Green
Genre: Fantasy
Publisher: Fuzzbom Publishing
Release Date: May 2013

Description: Tricked into slavery by the man she loved, the Djinni Leela has an eternity to regret her choices.


Awakened in the prison of her adolescent body, she finds a new master in possession of the opal that binds her. But seventeen-year-old Jered is unlike any she’s seen. His kindness makes Leela yearn to trust again, to allow herself a glimmer of hope.

Could Jered be strong enough to free her from the curse of the Binding Stone?

Alleywalkers, please welcome Leela to our Alleyway. *Hi, Leela!

Feel free to introduce yourself.
I am Leela and I am Djinn. *eyes glow green*

Tell us a little about your world.
The world I come from originally is devoid of any human senses. It is quite dull comparatively, but not as dangerous as the human world. 

Hmm...dull in comparison. Well, let's livin' this up a bit. Care to share secret feelings about one of your fellow characters?
*smiles slyly* I must admit that though I would prefer freedom, my new master, Jered is... quite pleasant. I do not mind his company. 

Fun facts, because I'm weird like that. What's your favorite flavor of ice cream?
I recently had a vanilla milkshake which I enjoyed very much. Though I admit it was more the company than the ice cream.

That is such a nice sentiment. What about thoughts on music? 
I do not like Mozart. He was a cruel master. Though the music I created for him is enjoyable.  

If you could have any job in the world, what would it be and why?
Job? I have never considered this. I would like to be free. Does that count? 

I suppose it does.

Did I tell you that Alleywalkers are great secret-keepers? Well, they are. Tell us what you really think of your creator. We WON'T tell. Promise.
She is horrible! *shudders* The torture she put me through - I cannot even describe it. And how can she have created people like Kitra and Achan? What kind of a mind thinks of these things? 

It has been a pleasure chatting with you, Leela. Looking forward to hearing from you again!

Have you ever heard of the Djinni? Any advice to Leela relating to humans?
