The Djinn

Go to Table of Contents

This is the second book of an historical fantasy trilogy that examines the moral struggles of characters from Hindu, Buddhist, Christian, Islamic and pagan traditions. The trilogy consciously, though not polemically, challenges the glorification of mediaeval society so common in fantasy literature.

The book uses a fictionalized account of the sack of Reting Monastery in 1240 by the Mongols as a backdrop.
