New York, 1899. Two strangers, one destiny. Chava is a golem, a creature made of clay, brought to life by a disgraced rabbi who dabbles in dark Kabbalistic magic. When her master, the husband who commissioned her, dies at sea on the voyage from Poland, she is unmoored and adrift as the ship arrives in New York in 1899. Ahmad is a djinni, a being of fire, born in the ancient Syrian desert. Trapped in an old copper flask by a Bedouin wizard centuries ago, he is released accidentally by a tinsmith in a Lower Manhattan shop. Though he is no longer imprisoned, Ahmad is not entirely free - an unbreakable band of iron binds him to the physical world. The Golem & The Djinni is their magical, unforgettable story; unlikely friends whose tenuous attachment challenges their opposing natures - until the night a terrifying incident drives them back into their separate worlds. But a powerful threat will soon bring Chava and Ahmad together again, challenging their existence and forcing them to make a fateful choice.

“A magical creation!”

An utterly absorbing fable of old magic re-emerging at the turn of the 20th century amongst the bustling streets of migrants making their new homes in New York. This is a tale, not just of a Djinni and a Golem, but... More

“A Meeting of Myths”

This is a good, well plotted and inventive story but it felt like something was missing. There was no spark, no wow factor that kept me engrossed and needing to read just one more chapter. It’s marketed as perfect for... More
