The Blue Djinn of Babylon

2006 ~ Book 2 in the Children of the Lamp series

Twelve-year-old twins who recently discovered themselves to be descended from a long line of djinn (which are commonly called genies), and who are now in possession of great magical powers, have only just returned from their adventures battling an evil djinn in Cairo and London. Now the mystery surrounding a powerful book of djinn magic lures the twins straight into their next extraordinary adventure.

When the Solomon Grimoire is reported missing, John and Philippa are called upon to retrieve it. They travel across the globe, from New York to Istanbul, but little do they know a trap has been set and the djinn twins are about to walk right into it. Soon John must embark on an epic journey to save his sister... before it's too late.

Critical Praise

"The humour 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 Magazine
