Brilliant Djinn Fantasy!

I have always been a Pike fan but this is probably my favorite book of his to date! As a writer he goes where no other writer goes, alternate universes which he has a way of bringing back with him and making it all sound possible. I have always been interested in Djinn and I was swallowed whole by this book! It is dark (think Wishmaster) while being hopeful. I love the different races and storylines he weaves, and I absolutly love the plot twists! This sure seems like a part one, but can be read as a complete story. It just leaves hope for more to come, which I hope there is! Pike is re-establishing his place as a favorite author of mine. This may be young adult but all ages will enjoy!

Pike is one of my all time favorite authors from when I was younger. I should revisit some of my favorites one of these days.

About this book

Wiki

One minute Sara's bored on vacation in Istanbul. The next, she's unearthed a flying carpet that cleverly drags her to the mysterious Island of the Djinn—or genies. By her side is Amesh, a cute guy she has a crush on but doesn't yet trust. When Amesh learns the secret of invoking djinn, he loses control. He swears he'll call upon only one djinn and make one wish. The plan sounds safe enough. But neither Sara nor Amesh are any match for the monster that that swells before them. It hypnotizes Amesh, compelling him to steal Sara’s flying carpet and leave her stranded on the island.
Discovering the carpet has sparked a new path for Sara, one that will lead her to battle creatures even deadlier than djinn. In this fight, Sara can save mankind, herself, or the boy she cares for. Who will she be forced to sacrifice?
