A snow storm lengthens their visit giving them time to talk about Malak's ancestor, Imam Shamil of Caucasus.
Narrative switches from Scotland 2010 to Akhulho, the Caucasus 1839, to Georgia 1854.

“Jasmine shook her head. She had forgotten about the tales of the Jinn that her father warned her about. Now, being here the memories were returning like a slow and purposeful
spider. With its long, black legs the nightmares would creep into her mind each time she closed her eyes. Then, she would see through the creature’s murky eyes. She would see the carcass of a deer as it lay in the glistening white. She would watch the hyena tearing at its sweated flesh, blood seeping into the snow forming warm pools of death around her feet. And in that moment, the deer shifted. It shifted into the shape of a young boy.”
Shereen Malherbe, Jasmine Falling

George Saunders
