the storm king - glowing sand by kai meyer (2009)

kai meyer is an established german ya-fantasy-writer. i have already read the two first books from his 1001-night-trilogy the storm king (die sturmkönige in german) and was really excited to read book 3, the hardcovers are very expensive, so i waited for the paperback, which was released this april 2011.

it's the 52th year of the war between jinns and humans. with their magic carpet, tarik and sabatea have gone into the desert again to find the legendary city of skarabapur. they are guided by an ivory-horse and acompagnied by the magician khalis, his bodygueard almarik and the thief-sieblings nightface and ifranji. at the same time tarik's brother junis is trying to rescue the strange boy jibril from the jinns, while they're attacking bagdad. he might be the only chance to win the war.

i know that sounds very complicated... but it's really, really great!

i'm sorry but i don't know when the books will appear in english, but i'm sure they will...
keep looking for them!

by the way, i really like the hardcover art:

    well, it's rather the other way round, i'm from switzerland, german is my mothertongue. but i now i read mostly english, because 1. i want to improve my english and 2. most of the books ar english original and i don't want to wait for the translation =)

    Wow, this sounds like a great series! Definitely something I would read. I hope they come out in English soon! Oh, and I really like the covers for the hardcovers. Mysterious yet appealing. Thanks for the review!
