Children of the Lamp: The Akhenaten Adventure – P.B. Kerr

akhenaten adventure

John and Philippa Gaunt are twelve-year-old not-very-identical twins. The twins realize there’s something amiss with their world when a string of strange things begin to happen after their wisdom teeth are extracted–they dream the same dreams, become stronger, their zits clear up, and wishes made in their presence inexplicably come true. And, when their estranged Uncle Nimrod asks them to come to England for the summer during one such shared dream, the discovery of their destiny is set in motion.

John and Phillippa discover that they are descended from a long line of Djinn and have great inherent powers. They must call on these powers a lot sooner than they anticipated, though, because the ancient Egyptian pharaoh Akhenaten is not as dead as history has so far declared and his legion of seventy magical djinn could tip the balance of power in the magical realm and affect the whole world order.

This is a fun new series about “genies” or as Kerr calls them Djinn.  I love to hear about how they can live in lamps or bottles and fly on whirlwinds.  Good adventure stories.   – Jessica, Teen Librarian
