This review is from: The Children of the Lamp #6: The Five Fakirs of Faizabad (Hardcover)
I'm surprised that there are only 2 other reviews and that these books are not more popular. In my mind, they are very well written books, much better than some more famous ones and one of the best "magician" type series books written for children.
This is the 6th book in the series and the best one so far.
I can't really reveal too much about the story but I will say that it touches on re-incarnation, fakirs, Tibet, a mythical creature, a mythical place, a forgotten exploration, and has a fantastic ending. Yes, some of it is based on history, that most people don't know about. The writer really as good imagination to knit together a story with such diverse elements. I highly recommend this book for 10+ to adults.
