A riveting fantasy from the imagination of New York Times best-selling author Christopher Pike.On vacation in Istanbul, Sara unearths 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 is any match for the monster that that swells before them . . .
* "The author ably juggles this central plot, creepy and elegant descriptions of the djinn, and even some juicy family drama to create a freewheeling, suspenseful action novel. Readers who recognize Pike as a key name in teen horror may be initially surprised by this subtly frightening adventure story, but there are still enough gross details mixed in to please even his hardcore fans."--Bulletin, starred review
"Pike’s work is about action and twists, both of which are packed into the narrative."--Kirkus Reviews
