The Revenge of the Blue Jinni is a tale of a young Arab American girl who learns of her great destiny, to defend the human world against an ancient malevolent entity. The Blue Jinni lies in a golden lantern at the bottom of the sea, and his generals work tirelessly to locate and free him.
Meanwhile, our hero and her family struggle to understand the strange occurrences happening around them. The benevolent jinn around them guard them from the attacks of the generals, as each attempt on her life brings her closer to knowing who she is.
Once the hero comes of age and understands what she’s destined to do, she becomes The Hakima of Ghalib, and must begin her training as a warrior against supernatural forces.
Dedra Stevenson is the author of The Hakima's Tale trilogy, Tales of the Lantern, Antar and Haider, and Magnolia Grove. Living in the Middle East had always provided Dedra with a great treasure of folklore and imaginative stories to gain inspiration from.
The life of the young Hakima was in constant danger from the Marid, the most sinister form of the Jinn. As the Marid gathered strength, they formed many attacks on the young girl and her family every step of the way.
The Hakima's Tale: The Revenge of the Blue Jinni
Months passed, and with the passing of time came the occasional incident. The Marid tried many times to end Phoenix’s life, but her protectors were never far behind. Their failed attempts left the Marid frustrated and even angrier that they could do nothing about the fact that their one and only obstacle was being raised in front of them. The Arwaah were not as powerful, but they were many. Entire nations of them, comprising every religious denomination, families and armies occupying the ground and sky, banned together to protect the girl.
