In anticipation of EXQUISITE CAPTIVE‘s release next week, Author Heather Demetrios and HarperCollins have created two awesome social media memes which they unveiled today and I’m so excited to be able to share them with you.
The author also commissioned an awesome original art piece for the Dark Caravan Cycle launch. The piece, by Indonesian artist Renata Owen, is called “The Dark Caravan.” If you’d like to learn a little bit more about the artist, click here to read an interview on Heather Demetrios’ blog. And if you’d like to reblog it or pin it, you can find it on Heather’s Tumblr or Pinterest.
But you can feel free to grab all three images below to share on your blogs, on Twitter and/or Facebook, linking them up to the series website.
Aren’t they amazing?
I absolutely loved EXQUISITE CAPTIVE and I can’t wait for its release next week. I’ll be sharing my thoughts on the blog’s tour on Friday. So if you’d like to know what I think, feel free to stop back then.
And in case you hadn’t already heard about this book and author, I’ve once again included the book’s details, its trailer, and a nice long excerpt below along with the author’s details and places to find her online.

FORCED TO OBEY HER MASTER. COMPELLED TO HELP HER ENEMY. DETERMINED TO FREE HERSELF.
Nalia is a jinni of tremendous ancient power, the only survivor of a coup that killed nearly everyone she loved. Stuffed into a bottle and sold by a slave trader, she’s now in hiding on the dark caravan, the lucrative jinni slave trade between Arjinna and Earth, where jinn are forced to grant wishes and obey their human master’s every command. She’d give almost anything to be free of the golden shackles that bind her to Malek, her handsome, cruel master, and his lavish Hollywood lifestyle.
Enter Raif, the enigmatic leader of Arjinna’s revolution and Nalia’s sworn enemy. He promises to free Nalia from her master so that she can return to her ravaged homeland and free her imprisoned brother – all for an unbearably high price. Nalia’s not sure she can trust him, but Raif’s her only hope of escape. With her enemies on the hunt, Earth has become more perilous than ever for Nalia. There’s just one catch: for Raif’s unbinding magic to work, Nalia must gain possession of her bottle…and convince the dangerously persuasive Malek that she truly loves him. Battling a dark past and harboring a terrible secret, Nalia soon realizes her freedom may come at a price too terrible to pay: but how far is she willing to go for it?
In the world of the dark caravan, a wish can be a curse and shadows are sometimes safer than the light.
