Annotations for Akhenaten Adventure : Children of the Lamp


Baker & Taylor
When their wisdom teeth appear, twelve-year-old twins John and Philippa Gaunt develop extraordinary magical gifts, so they travel to London to meet their wildly eccentric djinn-uncle, Nimrod, who after teaching them to harness their new power sends them to find Akhenaten, a long-dead pharaoh, and his tomb, in hopes of rescuing seventy lost djinn trapped there, but they are soon engaged in a battle with Iblis, the most wicked djinn of all.

From acclaimed thriller writer Philip Kerr comes an exceptional, imaginative adventure trilogy about a twin boy and girl with magical powers.

Meet John and Philippa Gaunt, twelve-year-old twins who one day discover themselves to be descended from a long line of djinn. All of a sudden, they have the power to grant wishes, travel to extraordinary places (and not necessarily on public transportation), and make people and objects disappear. Luckily (and luck does have something to do with it), the twins are introduced to their eccentric djinn-Uncle Nimrod, who will teach them how to harness their newly found power. And not a moment too soon!
