Book Recommendation: City of Brass Trilogy

For fans of fantasy books, I want to share two books (third is still being written) that I think you'll like :) City of Brass follows one girl living in Egypt named Nahri. She is just like you and me except for some strange powers that she doesn't give much thought to. She can heal people and can understand/speak languages the second she hears them (isn't the the dream!) Without giving too much away, she accidently sends out a sort of beacon that has mythological creatures like djinn, peri, and many more immediately coming for her - most of them wanting her dead. Luckily she has a daeva (similar to a djinn) that is sworn to protect her, even though he soooort of hates her guts. They have to not only save themselves, but essentially save the world and restore order and as expected, it's not easy. Overall I liked the plot and loved learned more about middle eastern mythology, but I wish there was more time to develop the characters. So much happened that it felt a little rushed.
