Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From acclaimed thriller writer Philip Kerr comes the second volume in this imaginative adventure trilogy about a twin boy and girl who discover they are descendants of a djinn, or genie.

John and Philippa Gaunt, twelve-year-old twins who have recently discovered themselves to be descended from a long line of djinn and in possession of magical powers, continue on their extraordinary adventures in this sequel to THE AKHENATEN ADVENTURE. When a powerful book of djinn magic goes missing, John and Philippa are called upon to retrieve it. Only, the book isn't really missing. The trap was set and Philippa is abducted by the Blue Djinn. In this latest installment of the twins' magical adventures, John and his uncle Nimrod must find Philippa before it's too late.

Never have I ever read such a ridiculously detailed and amazing book in my life. This exciting journey about a boy and girl with extraordinary powers called Djinn, embark on a global quest for a powerful book that has been stolen. The journey these characters go through made it hard to put down the book because of the great obstacles and challenges that led to end. But the thing that made this book become a great book was the fact that there was a dozen journeys with in the journey its self. This made the book much more fun and movie like to read. The Children of the lamp is a five star book that is definitely my favorite fantasy I have ever read.
