This book amazed me how it told the story of what occurred after Aladdin had the lamp. It also links the story Ella Enchanted to this book as well. This is a very mysterious tale about a woman who uses the lamp for good but has an addiction to magic. I would love to give this book to students that are fluent readers and have a passion for any Aladdin based tales. This is a great book for helping comprehension skills and fluency skills.

I really liked how this book was written differently than the first. It was nice. I love how I'm swept away to the land of Arabia and the magic. I like this different take on the Aladdin tale and how it is a whole new story. I also like the references it makes. One thing I got to say is that this book clearly isn't a well-known book since the editing was poor, because I found some spelling mistakes and awkward sentences. Overall, I'm glad I found this series. It was an okay ending.

An adventure story about Aminah and the Magic Lamp. It has an epic feel with intricately woven details about Aminah getting a lamp and losing a lamp to the evil princess Badur. She is the heroine among many heroes who help her, including the demon jinni of the lamp. Interestingly, the author weaves in a Cinderella tale and the possibility of a King Arthur tie-in to this cute and creative story. Pretty okay.

A fun fun book to read and enjoy. I thought when I was through with it that perhaps it was the second in a trilogy, but according to Goodreads it is not. So I guess my only criticism really would be that it felt at times like the author thought you should know characters, or have an understanding of past events that you obviously don't know, because there is no prior book explaining them.

I liked the first book better. This book was still fun, but not as ingenious as the first, and the storyline seemed disjointed in a few places. If there's a third, I'll probably read it, but I'm not dying for it to come out.

I liked this book. One thing you should know if you want to read this book, is that there's a book before it. It's called Wishing Moon. I have no idea why Michael O. Tunnell didn't advertise the fact that this book is a sequel.

This is the sequel to Wishing Moon. I really enjoyed it, action and humor, it was good. Of course, the ending leaves room for another title. I'll be looking forward to it.

I liked Wishing Moon much better than this sequel. Too many twists and turns in this one to make it satisfying, and I really disliked the Cinderella tie-in.

“And as you see, poor Idris was...persuaded,shall we say? Yes,persuaded to tell me about Tyre and his own route back to Al-Kal'as from there. Faysal, reveal to her his pain."

The Captain of the Guard dragged Idris forward. Faysal then ripped away his shirt, and Aminah gasped. Angry scars laced his bare chest, some of the burns still crusted and weeping. Tears tumbled down Aminah's face, but Idris did not raise his head to see them. "Forgive me" he mumered.”
