The book started very well but I lost interest fast and then tried to regain it by turning page after page and seeing what happens; the story moves fast so I finished the book but it had little magic for me - there were sparkles here and there but the Arabian Nights magic was lacking and I just did not feel the book was authentic but more of a Westerner's imagining of Harun al Rashid times.

For a recent book that I felt had the magic and the authenticity try Father of Locks by A. Killeen since this one is pretty forgettable
