Ready, Set, Jet!
I hope you are well and enjoying December. I have a really quick book review today. Recently I read A Dead Djinn in Cairo: (Dead Djinn Universe) the Kindle Edition and think that you will like it to. Its a very quick read at only 47 pages but very well written. It is part of a larger series set in 1912 Egypt in a steampunk world filled with magic, mystery and mayhem.
See a clockworks is about to destroy the earth...
I think it's a prefect read on a cold afternoon, plus right now Amazon has the Kindle version on for only $1.99 so grab a cup of tea, get comfy and dive in!
MY QUICK REVIEW:
Overall very good short story that drives you to read more, even if steampunk isn't your thing. Very good world building and a well balanced magical story with interesting characters, fun steampunk devices and just enough of the old Egyptian mysteries thrown to make for a very good tale.
The first book in the Dead Djinn Universe, I stumbled on A Master of Djinn and began reading over the Thanksgiving break, but saw this short (47 page) story as a prelude and decided to move to it. It is set in the Steampunk Universe of 1912, filled with magic and mystery. If you are looking for a short, entertaining read begin with this one and then you will be glad there are more books in the series.
