A wonderfully imaginative YA urban fantasy…
Sullivan’s debut is an exhilarating page-turner, featuring a fully fleshed-out cast and a fantastical world packed with both whimsey and dark. When Bax accepted a ring intended for his estranged father from a decrepit man with glowing purple eyes, he barely had any idea about the sinisterness the ring would unleash. With people close to him in danger and a trail of crimes pointing back at him, Bax must do everything in his power to find a way to banish the djinn forever. The book is chock full of chilly scares, plot twists, and relatable characters. As the narrative moves forward, readers gain insight into Bax’s destructive choice and the devastation in its wake. The otherworldly goings-on are grounded in the adolescent drama of Bax and his friends, adding intriguing nuances to the narrative. Readers will devour this story that is part high-school drama, part dark fantasy and eagerly await Sullivan’s next.
