    Nice Christmas novella

    Christine Pope’s new novella, Illuminated, closes the Djinn War series. It’s little jewel of a novella, set in the time after the Dying, the catastrophe set in motion by the Djinn in so that they can reclaim Earth as their own. I suppose it’s possible to read this separate from the others but one should probably at least read the first three books in the series to understand more of the story line. I must confess that I don’t normally enjoy novellas or short stories. If I like the plot I want to read a whole book about it. But this novella is fun, partly because it’s set at Christmas. Sarah Wright is the only person in her town of Cloudcraft to survive the dying. As winter closes in she knows that she should get down off the mountain before she’s snowed in for the winter. But, somehow, she just can’t make herself to abandon her town and the hotel where she now lives. Then one day Cam shows up. “Cam” is really Kamal al-Sayid, a Djinn. He has Chosen Sarah to be his life partner but wants to make sure she is the right person for him. Thus, he enters her life as human, wanting to get to know her further until he reveals himself as a Djinn, one who’s species had eradicated the vast majority of the people in the world. So, while I don’t normally like novellas, this one was fun for both the Christmas theme and also for being one last taste of a world I have come to love. As a matter of fact, I think I’ll go back to the first book of the series right now and dive in. Happy reading!
