5 out of 5 stars
The story Baba Ali and the Clockwork Djinn: A Steampunk Faerie Tale by Danielle Ackley-McPhail and Day Al-Mohamed is a wonderful book to read. It pulls you in right from the beginning and doesn’t let you go until the final page. It is a story that has adventure, danger, and magic. It is a book which tells the story of Ali bin-Massoud and how in one night in which he receives a mysterious box, his life is never the same. I found that I liked the character of Ali bin-Massoud and wanted him to succeed in unraveling the mysteries of a puzzle box and the clockwork djinn. He finds himself summoned home after the death of his father. He has to beware of thieves and those who wish to do him harm. Will he realize his destiny? Read the full story to see what happens to Ali bin-Massoud. The book is never boring and very entertaining. It is written in such a way that I felt I was right there with the characters. Many additional characters are introduced, and they are helpful to Ali bin-Massoud. There are also those whose only thought is of themselves. This is a wonderful book that will take you from England to the sands of the desert. I would recommend reading it.
