The end of “Aladdin of the Lamp” finds the cunning Aladdin ruler of a great kingdom. Now, many years have passed…
Life as the king of Agrabah is never boring, especially when the dashing Sinbad the Sailor requests a ship to save his kidnapped wife. Aladdin, never one to run from danger, agrees to help and accompanies Sinbad as they set sail to accumulate enough treasure to ransom the sailor's wife. Soon they run afoul of zombies, sirens, demons, nymphs, evil djinns, and a dastardly plot to take over his kingdom.
But Aladdin has a few tricks up his sleeves…including one very magical lamp.
From best-selling authors Piers Anthony (Xanth) and J.R. Rain (Vampire for Hire), Aladdin Sins Bad is the second in a fantastical series set in the enchanted world of the Arabian Nights.

Very high. The narrator Paul Licameli really makes this book. All his voices and accents and sound effects make it amazing. He seriously is a one man show.
Aladdin is a character who is always getting into sticky situations with often hilarious results. I am now addicted to this series and can't wait to see what troubles Anthony and Rain have thought up for the hero to get involved in next.
While I enjoy fantasy, I was never really big on Aladdin. I mostly prefer horror- but this has proved to be a delightful deviation for me. I can't think of the last time a book has had me actually laughing out loud as much as the ones in this series have.
Audiobook received for an honest review.
Say something about yourself!
These are just a few of the things Aladdin and his step-son encounter when they decide to get out of the house and so some male bonding.
Aladdin Sins Bad is second in the Rain/Anthony Aladdin Trilogy and it is even better than book one! The story moves very quickly and something either dangerous or ridiculous happens just about every five minutes.
Narrator, Paul Licameli, does a fun job of giving us very different character voices and knows how to ramp up the excitement levels whenever called for.
It's a very humorous fantasy series, told from the point of view of a man who is both smart and simple- (or perhaps single-) minded. I can recommend it for a light and funny listen.
