Audible Editor Reviews

Ron Keith's resonant English accent brings to life P. B. Kerr's rich fantasy world of djinn magic, angels, and demons in this fast-paced adventure, the third book in the best-selling author's Children of the Lamp series. Keith's energetic performance shines both in the novel's battle between good and evil and in its lighter moments, such as the Prime Minister whose possession by a mischievous schoolgirl djinn turns him into a giggling child, bombastic uncle Nimrod, and the one-armed butler that travels with the twins as they set out to solve the mystery surrounding the murderous cobra-worshippers that are hunting them, their compatriots, and the dangerous talisman that can't be allowed to fall into the wrong hands.

Publisher's Summary

Djinn twins John and Philippa Gaunt are on the trail of another magical mystery. As they travel from New York to London to Nepal to India on a whirlwind adventure, the twins try to help their friend Dybbuk find out who murdered his best friend using the venomous snakebite of the king cobra. All too soon John and Philippa find themselves caught up in the lethal world of the Cult of the Nine Cobras - only to discover that they themselves are a target of the creepy cobra cult. Now, the twins must find the invaluable Cobra King talisman and stop the cult leader's deadly plan!

    "Can't wait for the fourth!"

    We've just finished listening to all three books in a row. My children (12 and 8) really enjoyed them and I did as well. We listened on a long road trip and every time we got into the car they wanted to turn it on right away. The Cobra King was a little harder to follow for my younger one as it jumped forward and back between story lines and we paused more often to explain things. There was a little more 'gore' in this one near the end--more so than the other books, but still not overly so. I rated this one 4 stars instead of 5 like the other two just for the fact that I noticed some unexplained inconsistencies that perhaps listening to all three in a row were more noticable. But, it was still very enjoyable and the children actually would have rated each one '10' they said! We still can't wait for the fourth book to be released on Audible.

    "Adventurous tale, needs next book for resolution"

    Not as good as the first book in the series, but still with the hearing. Also, the ending is disquieting and clearly sets up the next book.
