Cover Reveal: Baba Ali and the Clockwork Djinn


Hmm, this description is what caught my attention first. Well, along with the fact that it's steampunk and clockwork. Yes, I do love this twist to stories - a different way to project magic, with machinary. I do enjoy it.

Baba Ali and the Clockwork Djinn

Description:
Come, Best Beloved, and sit you by my feet. I shall tell you a tale such as sister Scheherazade could have scarce imagined…

In the Nejd there is nothing at all…except secrets. A band of thieves wish such secrets to remain hidden.
In England, far from his desert home, Ali bin-Massoud serves as apprentice to the famed Charles Babbage. One night a mysterious box is delivered by a clockwork falcon and Ali’s world is never the same again. Heartache, danger, and thieves mark his journey as Ali is summoned home at the death of his father.
It will take faith, knowledge, and yes, love to realize his destiny, and more than a little skill with steam-driven technology. Can he unravel the mystery of the puzzle box and the clockwork djinn before it is too late? An ancient legacy and Ali's very life depend on his success.


Hear you the tale of Baba Ali and the Clockwork Djinn.



It's a remix with a twist of clockworks. I have been enjoying these and look forward to this one as well.

The cover has a water-painting feel. It works with the feel of old tale from the story.
