A Holy Land…A Holy War…An Unholy Terror
In the final years of the first Kingdom of Jerusalem, in a vault, hidden deep beneath the Temple Mount, Baron Gregory De L'Ombre has made an astonishing discovery. Imprisoned within the vault are twelve monstrous abominations, created by one of King Solomon's wives as a final act of revenge. The secrets of the vault will ensure Gregory's absolute power and forever enslave the Outremer-the Holy Land. No man dares stand against him.
But the Djinn is no mere man.
A creature of smoke and shadow… a living legend… only the Djinn grasps the full scope of the baron's plans. Only he can save the Holy Land from a fate more terrible than anyone imagines.

The Dragon Mother
This was such an awesome story woven into tales of biblical times to modern day. The Djinn is a boogeyman type character, told to children to get them to behave, but as with most legends, a hint of truth will keep the adults wondering. When mysterious things start happening around Baron Gregory’s men, whispers of the Djinn start to come out everywhere. Even those who don’t believe will question themselves over the mysterious happenings. The closer the Baron gets to the discovering the mysteries of the vault, the more the Djinn is determined to stop him.
The Djinn used the old legends surrounding his existence, the shadows, and the sword to discourage any discoveries. He knew the dangers involved in awakening the abominations and tried to make the Baron see the danger too. The Baron was set on discovering the power that the clay men would give him and was determined not to let any mystical creature, such as the Djinn, stop him from obtaining it.
The ending was totally awesome! I won’t give it away, but the ending took me by surprise. It wasn’t that the author took some little known thing and stuck it in but that the culmination of the story ended with a perfectly rounded tale. Just like when you are making brownies, the brownie batter is delicious on its own, but once baked in the oven … Awesomeness!!
