Rais and his family struggle to make sense of it all as an impending catastrophe threatens to destroy everything they know Needless to say everything is resting on Indelbed’s next move and he’s got a new partner to help him the world’s most evil djinn. I think I read this one or most of it If my memory is correct it was a DNF of a used copy since recycled So no independent confirm library check out list and I didn't keep notes It was OK Interesting Definitely a YA book and not the sort I would usually read I must have had a pretty good reco to go to the trouble of buying a copy Not this one but it is good the book I was thinking of was Jasmine Nights by SP Somtow Otherwise uite similar in descriptions and I didn't much care for the Somtow
