Description

Best-selling author P.B. Kerr wowed readers with The Akhenaten Adventure, the first entry in his critically acclaimed Children of the Lamp fantasy series. In this thrilling sequel, twins John and Philippa Gaunt-descendants of a long line of djinn-face the evil and terrifying Blue Djinn of Babylon. The Solomon Grimoire-a powerful book of magic-has gone missing. When John and Philippa are chosen to retrieve it, their quest sends them trotting across the globe. But what they don't know is they are being lured into a trap by the Blue Djinn. When Philippa falls right into the trap, John must embark on a perilous adventure to save his sister. With this second effort, Kerr has established the Children of the Lamp series as a masterful saga that deserves consideration alongside the classics of fantasy fiction. Narrator Ron Keith brings Kerr's wondrous world to full and glorious life with his dynamic performance.

Professional reviews

"A well-done fantasy along the lines of Harry Potter, this second installment in the Children of the Lamp series is a treat. Twelve-year-old twins John and Philippa Gaunt reprise their roles as New Yorkers with hidden magical powers. Their djinn (genie) world becomes threatened when the magical incantation book is stolen, and the twins set off to recapture it. Ron Keith's skilled narration delivers wicked villains, tension, and excitement as the twins struggle to free themselves from the trap set for them. Keith's portrayal of the kids reveals their youthful determination without stereotypical childish tones, and his classy voice helps to bridge the gap between the world of contemporary preteens and a classic quest.
