Another spellbinding adventure from bestselling author P. B. Kerr!

John and Philippa Gaunt are all ready for their lives to return to normal now that their mother has given up her djinn powers. But the siblings are quickly drawn into yet another mystery when the world's luck tips wildly out of balance (to the world's detriment).

Editorial Reviews

Praise for the Children of the Lamp series"Kerr puts an ingenious spin on the enchanted-lamp theme in his first novel for children...." - Booklist "A breakneck-paced, Indiana Jones-style adventure. . . . Kerr keeps the emphasis on fun...." - Publishers Weekly "[T]he humor is just right, the captivating world of the djinn is faultlessly depicted and expanded, and Kerr balances the resolution with enough uncertainties to draw readers back for the next installment. This work is likely to win new fans as well as please those who enjoyed the previous book." - Voice of Youth Advocates "Kerr brings a wealth of invention and a solid grounding of research into djinn legends to his creation, giving the story and its deftly varied episodes a rich texture.... Capable writing and a well-shaped plot will reward fans returning to this series." - The Horn Book
