SYNOPSIS:  “In the near future, after a storm strikes New York City, the strangenesses begin.  A gardener finds that his feet no longer touch the ground.  A graphic novelist awakens to a mysterious entity that resembles his own creation. A baby identifies corruption with her mere presence, marking the guilty with blemishes and boils.

Unbeknownst to them, they are all descended from the creatures known as the jinn.  Centuries ago, Dunia, a princess of the jinn, fell in love with a mortal man. Together they produced an astonishing number of children, unaware of their fantastical powers, who spread across generations in the human world.

Once the line between worlds is breached on a grand scale, Dunia’s children play a role in an epic war between light and dark spanning a thousand and one nights – or two years, eight months, and twenty-eight nights.”
