Recommended for: fantasy fans
Read in January, 1989

This is a fantasy story set in an 'arabian nights'-themed land, where Aeshma the deva king has been released from a long imprisonment and threatens to destroy mankind. Last time he was stopped by great heroes, but those people do not exist today.

Instead, we have Jafar al-Sharif (a storyteller who tries to pass himself off as a wizard), his daughter, and Prince Ahmad (who's been exiled). While these are just ordinary people, they learn and grow as the story progresses.

The characters are what make this series a must-read.
