A WORLD RUNNING OUT OF WATER, KINGS AND QUEENS STRUGGLING TO CONTROL WHAT IS LEFT, AND A DIASPORA TRYING TO STOP THEM.
Jade St. John splits her time between her isolated estate in South Africa, protected by an enchantment her grandmother concocted more than a decade ago, and a basement apartment in Tel Aviv, with a door full of more levers and pulleys than a bank vault. Worldly and confident, she stands out in any crowd. Zyan, a Bedouin boy learning the ways of the desert from his father’s stories, has accepted a humble path in order to learn the secrets of the nomadic life and establish his roots in the shifting sand.At the well one day, Zyan catches a wavy vision of Jade—whom he believes is a jinn—which tugs the magical thread connecting them while simultaneously drawing them into a global crisis. As they’re pulled closer, their lives become more imperiled, until it becomes apparent that only together can they stay alive.
