Review: Baba Ali and the Clockwork Djinn by Danielle Ackley-McPhail and Day Al-Mohamed

Review: Baba Ali and the Clockwork Djinn by Danielle Ackley-McPhail and Day Al-Mohamed

November 20, 2014 Review 0

In this retelling of ‘Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves,’ Danielle Ackley-McPhail and Day Al-Mohamed have mixed a little machinery with magic while delving into the Arabian culture, and bringing us a protagonist whose heroism is in his dedication – dedication to his craft, his family, and his desire to to what’s right. BABA ALI AND THE CLOCKWORK DJINN is a breath of fresh desert wind, and if the book suffers from some plotting and pacing missteps, it’s still a charming oasis for fantasy lovers looking to enjoy something a little less Western.
