On the fringes of the Persian Empire lurks a mystery with earth-shattering power.
Sixteen-year-old Peni’s talent for detection has always brought her the wrong kind of attention. When her stepmother tries to fix Peni’s reputation by forcing her into marriage, Peni sends up a desperate prayer for help. And is shocked when a jinni answers.
The jinni offers Peni a bargain: use her talents to find King Solomon’s magic ring, and he will eliminate her fiancé. Dazzled by the handsome jinni’s faith in her, Peni agrees. But as she begins to unravel Solomon’s riddles, she learns that more than her own future is at stake. The ring is no mere trinket—it holds the power to save or destroy nations. Unless she can find it first, Solomon’s ancient enemies will use it to conquer the empire—and burn it to ash.
