Created from pure, smokeless fire and endowed with supernatural powers, the mythology of the Djinn dates back more than 2000 years and can be found in fables originating from a diverse range of cultures. Much like humans, they can be good or evil, however, they are often portrayed as wicked spirits, genies, fiery beings and monsters.
The Djinn Falls in Love is a fascinating collection of new and classic tales of the fearsome Djinn, from bestselling, award-winning and breakthrough international writers, including Neil Gaiman and Catherine King.
The stories featured in this wonderful new collection showcase the many differing interpretations and experiences of the Djinn in modern culture.

Swift, as they explore the dark places where the Djinn has hidden throughout history and ask how our interpretation of this enduring myth has shifted over time.
