When wishes become real physical beings, it’ll take a powerful genie to capture them. The magical world of Joseph Daniel’s Theft of Sapphire really took the show for me. I loved the concept of wishes being real creatures and unfulfilled wishes becoming terrible monsters, and Daniel’s humorous writing really brought the magic to life! This one’s perfect for any Percy Jackson or Harry Potter fans out there!

Wow. That was awesome. Great characters, great premise, great world-building. A totally different take on genies. I loved all the kids and I can't wait to see what's next for them. So much fun.

Joseph Daniel is definitely on my radar now. I would love to know more about the world, the different clans, the family who I came to love.
Comparisons to Harry Potter are valid, with the Weasleys, Borrow, Gringotts and Erisid vibes at different
