Waterstones Says

Steeped in the magic of Muslim folklore, Khan's enchanting children's debut sends our eponymous hero into a richly imagined underground world where the trickster jinns hold sway.

Waterstones Children's Book of the Month for July 2022

A magical adventure rooted in Muslim culture and tradition, Nura and the Immortal Palace follows a young girl's journey from modern-day Pakistan into the world of the jinn.

Nura has worked all her life in the mica mines, earning just enough to keep her family afloat - and enjoy the odd delicious gulab jamun from the market. Some day she's going to find the Demon's Tongue, a legendary treasure buried deep in the mines, and her family will never have to worry about money again.

But when a terrible accident buries her best friend below ground, Nura goes in search of him and passes over into the magical and terrible world of the jinn. Across a pink sea and under a purple sky, she finds her way to a palace, where great riches and a whole new life are on offer.

But it's not long before Nura discovers this world to be as unfair as the real one, and that trickster jinns will always live up to their reputation...
