A girl, a genie, a few demons. Would could go wrong?
by Marva Dasef
Basit appears in all of Setara’s adventures except one. In that story, an evil genie has tricked Basit into the bottle that Aladdin put him in years before. He introduces himself to Setara as Sharif, Apprentice Djinn Second Class, and claims to be taking over for Basit while he’s missing. Setara is naturally concerned for Basit. The evil genie (disguised as a boy djinn) wants to lure her into helping him kill the Great Vizier ---- screeeech! Calling a halt here. The plot is too complicated to explain in full.
“At your service, Mistress Setara.” The genie swept a deep bow toward her. He looked nothing like Basit, although Basit didn’t always look precisely like Basit. This genie seemed younger, much younger. Indeed, he looked like a boy no more than twelve or thirteen years old.
“I see.” Setara stared at the boy and pulled her ear thoughtfully. She didn’t know what to make of this development. “Where’s Basit?”

Marva, once again you have created a world in which anything can happen!! This looks like another winner!!! We're going from witches to djins or genies. This time too, we have a teenager. Almost anything can happen with this young genie. I'm excited to read the book and find out more.

Until the next time I hope you are all enjoying the rest of summer if you live in the Northern Hemisphere and you aren't too cold if you live in the Southern Hemisphere like my friends in Australia and New Zealand. Here it is beautiful and sunny most days except when it storms.:)
For all those who are following my husband's health, I am happy to report he is feeling much better,
I will be interviewing Amy McCorkle on my radio show RRWL Tales from the Pages on Thursday, August 23 at 3PM Central Time and 4PM EST. By then I should be finished reading her book, Gladiator, which is not PG, so tune in and find out more about this very sexy novel from another Muse author!
In September I will be interviewing several authors here, one of which is the delightful Cyrus Keith with his book, Becoming Nadia. Also I will be having Kathy Rygg here that same week and the following week I'll be hosting Katie Carroll.
Don't forget to leave a comment for Marva!!! Thank you for visiting, Marva. It was a pleasure as always to find out about your new book, Setara's Genie and to be hosting you again!!
