Publisher's Summary

The Solomon Grimoire - a powerful book of magic - has gone missing. When John and Philippa are chosen to retrieve it, their quest sends them trotting across the globe. But what they don't know is they are being lured into a trap by the Blue Djinn. When Philippa falls right into the trap, John must embark on a perilous adventure to save his sister. With this second effort, Kerr has established the Children of the Lamp series as a masterful saga that deserves consideration alongside the classics of fantasy fiction. Narrator Ron Keith brings Kerr's wondrous world to full and glorious life with his dynamic performance.

Second book as great as the first!

My children (12 and 8) and I listened to this as well as the other two books on a long road trip. Plenty of humor even for adults, but even my 8 year old could follow the story. He missed some of the more subtle humor, but it didn't affect his love of the story. This book was a little more intense than the first, but still not too scary. Very enjoyable listen and Ron Keith as narrator of all three installments is wonderful. The voices are distinct and the pronunciations succinct. The exotic names and places really make you feel as though you are there.

Enchanting as always

Where does The Blue Djinn of Babylon rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Among the top, pretty hard to top Tim Curry's narration of Journey to the Center of the Earth but Ron Keith does a great job enticing you to the story.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Blue Djinn of Babylon?

Definitely the scenes where John must go through the seven annoying obstacles to traverse to Iravotem to save Phillipa. They were quite vivid and provides a good segue to the Cobra King of Katmandu's more graphic imagery and "violence."

Have you listened to any of Ron Keith’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, but its quite good.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The most moving part of this story was the realization that ... oh man i can't say that (no spoilers).

Any additional comments?

i really love these books. make me feel like a kid adventuring and pretending to be magical. (though these kids are ACTUALLY magical..) :)
