Official Publisher's Review

The Three Wish War has been a labour of love for Bill Pratt and it shows. The story asks the question of why do genies do what they do and why stop at three wishes? And how far are they willing to go to maintain the status quo? This time around, the genie is bound by the new rules, and he hates them. Worse, his attention is divided by a rebellion turned bloody back in his homeland. He can’t do his job with a paltry three wishes, but a bloodbath to win back the right to perform his job as he sees fit is not what he had in mind. His clients this time around are three roommates: the quiet one, Karen, wants to be an actress. The pretty one, Melanie, enjoys a life of easy leisure, but always wants more. And Natalie just wishes her two friends could get along. Literally.
