A child or adult can never read to much, unless its your book!!!
This is a novel well suited for older children or younger young adults. Overall, the concept of the story was interesting, but the writing was simple. It is at its heart a story about good versus evil and a nearly perfect chosen one. I liked the different Jinn characters and how the lore surrounding them builds up over the story as the story progresses. However, there are a lot of Jinn characters and it can be hard to keep track of them. This is a great story for minority young adult fantasy enthusiasts, especially, because the main characters are of Arab descent and the story takes place in the Middle East. A lot of the lore that drives the fantastical elements of the story comes from the lore of that region, even though the author’s takes license with it. Unfortunately, I felt that the story ended too abruptly. While the story was being built up to be a series, it just didn’t feel like it should’ve ended in the spot that it did. It is not a standalone story.
The narration by Mark Norman was good. His characterization of each of the characters made the story seem even more accessible for young adults. The production quality was also good. I would recommend this novel to young adults who like atypical fantasy stories about the fight of a chosen one and good versus evil.

This is such a great book on so many different levels. The introduction into a different culture, the battle between good and evil, fulfilling your destiny and of course, and of course instilling a love of reading.
This book is also refreshing change from all the vampire books out right now. Stevenson is certainty not following any trend, but blazing a new trail instead. Great job.
When I Dream
Hakima's tale will allow every reader to discover its delights, twists and turns which the story abundantly offers, a wonderful journey across borders, dreams, vistas and ideas. The scale of and thought in the work is outstanding, perhaps a future childrens classic.This is a cherished story which I will buy and keep and I suggest other readers do the same, five stars from me because it is so well constructed and has real heart and substance, plus the potential for a wide readership. Well done DL Stevenson, you have a marvellous imagination and you must be young at heart, I hope you will delight us again soon with a further installment.
