    Rise of the Djinn is a striking tale that immediately immerses the reader within the emotionally gripping tragedies of a once confident woman, but as life collapses after the death of her husband and she begins to question her sanity, it is the undeniable strength of character which keeps us cheering for Tamara. With phenomenal artwork and stunning colors which keep our eyes glued to the page, the trials of this determined detective are inspiring, so much so that I could not keep my eyes dry within the first act and constantly smiling to see her overcome so much misery toward the end.
