Will Liana be able to make herself visible again? Can she defeat the evil genie? Find out in this great book!
Matt Dallmann wrote an interesting book filled with magic and genies. This book was enjoyable and fun to read. However, some parts were slow. For the most part, the scenes worked well together and flowed smoothly.
The author incorporated unique ideas into this story. For example, the method of "trapping" a genie in this book was different than other methods I've read about. This method seemed more logical than some of the other theories I've read. I would recommend this book for ages 12 and up because there was some death.
