A Master of Djinn — P. Djèlí Clark

Carrying straight on from where The Haunting of Tram Car 015 left off, with all our favourite characters involved, this really is some great writing.

This trilogy has been my first taste of Djèlí’s writing and i’m very impressed.   His imagination is excellent and his ability to put that imagination into words for all us avid readers is simply marvellous.   I’m certainly going to be reading more of his work in the future: i’m hooked.

All in all, a wonderful blend of steampunk, fantasy and folklore all thrown into an alternative history in Cairo with lots of shenanigans mixed will in.   And it’s great to have main protagonists who are strong women, from different religions, who also happen to be in a same sex relationship.

The Haunting of Tram Car 015 — P. Djèlí Clark

Very similar to A Dead Djinn in Cairo, although with mostly different characters and a lot more pages to enjoy.

Once again, wonderfully written, keeps on a moving, interesting characters, great descriptions.

The only thing left to do is to read A Master of Djinn, which is a rather good length novel that i’m so looking forward to devouring.
