With the help of her mentor and her friends from the Jinn world, Phoenix trains as a warrior and learns to be the leader that she's expected to be; however, her young age and her lonely heart prove to be her most threatening weaknesses.
The generals of the jinn uprising plan for the release of their evil Master, gathering a formidable army of supernatural forces as their plan unfolds.
