The end of "Aladdin of the Lamp" finds the cunning Aladdin ruler of a great kingdom. Now, many years have passed....
Aladdin is older, richer and wiser...and heart broken. After losing his beloved wife and son to foul play, he resigns from being king and sets out to do what he does best.
Now working as an anonymous relic hunter using the name Niddala (Aladdin spelled backwards), he's hired by a desperate - and beautiful - noblewoman named Jewel to rescue her kidnapped son. Prince Zeyn, a powerful wizard from the magical land of Djinnland, has designs on Aladdin's kingdom, and Jewel's son is to be the final piece of a bloody plot to rule two worlds.
To save the boy and his kingdom, Aladdin soon realizes he must seek the aid of a once-powerful ally, the mighty Djinn of the Lamp. Unfortunately, the Djinn is being held prisoner by Zeyn in Djinnland, a magical land full of dragons and ogres, magic carpets and magic castles. With time rapidly running out, Aladdin and Jewel will journey into a world far stranger than anything they had ever imagined, a world full of danger at every turn, a world in which they may never return. It will take all their cunning and wits to stay alive - but will they do so in time to save the Djinn, her son, and a kingdom?
From bestselling authors Piers Anthony (Xanth) and J.R. Rain (Vampire for Hire), Aladdin Relighted is the first in a magical series featuring Aladdin and his Extraordinary Lamp.

Here there be VILLAINS, HEROES, DJINS, & DRAGONS!!
A delightful romp and lighthearted adventure also lurk in this audio.
I confess, I don't know J.R. Rain's work, but this is exactly what I have come to expect from Piers Anthony. The plot is easy to follow, the number of characters not overwhelming (thank God). The sex talk? Slightly juvenile, but not off-putting.
The narrator, Paul Licameli, has a beautiful voice and is clearly a trained speaker. I did feel as if his rendering was better suited for a stage performance rather than cozy or intimate story-telling (a la Scheherazade) and it took me several chapters to grow accustomed to what I consider too much enunciation. Either that or Mr. Licameli eased off after those few chapters.
Overall, I enjoyed the audio and would be happy to continue with the series.

A fun romp in the hay
This is a fun Fantasy romp that shouldn't be taken to seriously. Some of it is about Fantasy tales in other lands, but a lot of it involves fantasizing about the female body. While I can appreciate this perspective, I think many will not.
