Djinn City
Djinn City | Saad Z Hossain
8 posts | 3 read | 78 to read
Indelbed is a lonely kid living in a crumbling mansion in the super dense, super chaotic third world capital of Bangladesh. When he learns that his dead mother was a djinn -- more commonly known as a genie -- and that his drunken loutish father is a sitting emissary to the djinns (e.g. a magician), his whole world is turned inside out. Suddenly, and for reasons that totally escape him, his father is found in a supernatural coma, and Indelbed is kidnapped by the djinn and delivered to a subterranean prison. Back in the city, his cousin 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.

Another “genie” book! For some reason I can‘t get enough of them. Plus, the cover is amazing 🤩

"Practice, my dear, and you will surely master it," Givaras said. "For those of us without brute strength, precision is the path we must follow. If you cannot be the hammer, why then be the scalpel."

Arabian mythology! With adventure, satire / dark humour (these litigious, faction obsesssed Djinn crack me up), genetics, sort-of-dragons, and Harry Potter references to boot. So much fun.
