Novella Review: A Dead Djinn in Cairo

Hello Everyone,

Book Title: A Dead Djinn in Cairo

Author: P. Djeli Clark

Genre: Fantasy

Series: #0.1

Publisher: Tor

Page Count: 45


Book Summary:

Egypt, 1912. In an alternate Cairo infused with the otherworldly, the Ministry of Alchemy, Enchantments and Supernatural Entities investigate disturbances between the mortal and the (possibly) divine. What starts off as an odd suicide case for Special Investigator Fatma el-Sha’arawi leads her through the city’s underbelly as she encounters rampaging ghouls, saucy assassins, clockwork angels, and plot that could unravel time itself.

My Thoughts:

I really don’t want to spoil this novella so my review is going to be short and sweet. This was so much fun to read. Granted, it took me a bit to actually get a feel for it, but once I did I just breezed through it and finished it in less than an hour. It’s fast. It’s fun. And with the murder mystery it kept my interest. I did guess who the bad guy was correctly but I still had an entertaining time reading this. Highly recommend for any fantasy or mystery fans

My Rating:
