Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Alternate historic Cairo comes to vivid life in Clark's first novel. His cosmopolitan city includes not only humans from all around the world, but supernatural creatures aplenty. When their interests and agendas collide, the result is the kind of book you don't want to put down. World Fantasy and Hugo Award-nominated author Marie Brennan
Fascinating! I love the intricate alt-history world of A Master of Djinn, with its hints at the changed destinies of nations and ordinary people alike after the cataclysmic return of magic to the world. Clark gives us an engaging mystery with a wonderful mix of the fantastic and the mundane, chain-smoking crocodile gods, stuffy marid librarians, and a brilliant heroine with a dashing bowler. Django Wexler, author of The Thousand Names
A Master of Djinn is everything you might expect from Clark: cinematic action, a radical reimagining of real history, and magic on every page. I loved it. Hugo Award winner Alix E. Harrow, author of The Ten Thousand Doors of January
A Master of Djinn has all the tricky twists I want in a police procedural and all the djinns, magic and wonder I want from fantasy. Mary Robinette Kowal, Hugo and Nebula award-winning author of The Calculating Stars
A delightful whodunnit full of sly commentary and a wonderfully lived-in steampunk Cairo. The perfect read when I needed a break from this world to enjoy one wholly made from Clark's enviable imagination. Hugo and Nebula Award-winning Rebecca Roanhorse, author of Trail of Lightning and Star Wars: Resistance Reborn
“A clever, wickedly fun steampunk mystery with an excellent balance of humor and heart. I loved it. S. A. Charkaborty, internationally-bestselling author of The City of Brass
