This is the short story that turned into the seed for the three book mini-series "Amadi, the Phoenix, the Sphinx, and the Djinn" years later. It is no longer available.

Since I, the author, learned a lot during the "germination", style and character issues mentioned by reviewers of the short story have been addressed. I hope you will check out the trilogy to see for yourself. ;-)
Short story with action and character development. I got this book free on my Nook and decided to give it a go. Entertaining but I would have like a continuation of what happened next.

Favorite quote: "One of us is the Lyingbird, one is the Firebird and the last one is the Phoenix. But you'll have to make up your mind alone."
I like this book. The beginning of the first chapter was a bit off and I almost set it aside but by the end of it I was hooked and when I finished the story, I was looking for a sequel. It was well worth my time, Im glad I stuck with it.
This is a lovely short story reminiscent of persian or arabian fairy tales
