Tribal Affairs by Matt Dallmann Book Review

 

Tribal Affairs gives Teen & Young Adult a fantastic Paranormal & Urban fantasy. Author Matt Dallmann gives the YA Readers an easy to follow storyline with G rated content that a parent of a teen would be happy with, the book quickly jumps into the adventure to keep the reader’s attention, it does alternate from past to present, between the tale of Dahlia and Liana a genie and a teenager.

Tribal Affairs tells the story of fantasy, magic, and genies. Sixteen-year-old Liana decides to wear charm (ankle bracelet) which, unknown to her, is the prison for a centuries-old genie, Dahlia. The charm has a ripple effect for many of the characters within the book. The genie has been trapped for generations in the charm of an anklet that once belonged to Liana’s mother. Soon she finds herself caught up in a centuries-old conflict between two powerful tribes of genies. The main characters come from very different worlds, which you read when it’s going from past to present and they have very different backgrounds.

I look forward to reading more books from Matt. Dallman.

Dahlia, a centuries old genie, lies hopelessly trapped in a damaged golden locket charm attached to an ankle bracelet. Its owner, sixteen-year-old Liana, wears it for the first time during her father Jamison’s opening night illusion spectacular. Not only does its presence cause Jamison to folly his performance, but it also starts a chain of bizarre events that lead to a showdown with Dahlia’s mortal enemy, Stefan, and an unsuspecting romance between Liana and his son.
