Book of Breathings : Straight Path to the Heavens
Q: How many imps does it take to screw in a lightbulb? A: One to hold the bulb and a billion to rotate the universe counterclockwise. Reisling Trew is only a mediocre mage. She thinks saving the world is a job better left to her husband, Idris, and his foster brother, Malak. But when Malak, prince of the Djinn, vanishes from his Cinderella ball, Reis naturally chases after him. Like Alice, down she goes through the rabbit hole into the forgotten Well of Solace, triggering events that might end the universe. What's a girl to do after that, but try to save it? Unfortunately, mankind's guardians have other ideas. So do Idris, Malak's father, and even the sentient Spring of Life with its legions of devoted, childlike imps. Can Reis unravel the threat once and for all despite all the thumbs in the cosmic pudding without needing saving, herself? Book of Breathings brings together new worlds with old creatures; friendship and love, intrigue and betrayal, and-as always when djinnis are involved-a dollop of humor.
