Nura and the Immortal Palace

by M.T. Khan - £7.99  Walker Books Ltd (2022)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781529503494 | ISBN 10: 1529503493

A magical and page-turning adventure following a young girl’s journey from the mines of Pakistan into the treacherous world of the jinn. A sparkling tale rooted in Muslim culture and tradition.
 
Nura has worked all her life in the mica mines, earning just enough to keep her family afloat – and to enjoy the odd delicious gulab jamun from the market. Some day she’s going to find the Demon’s Tongue, a legendary treasure buried deep in the mines, and she'll never have to worry about money again. Then a terrible accident in the mine buries her best friend below ground. Desperate to save him, Nura digs too deep and passes over into the magical and terrible world of the jinn.
 
Across a pink sea and under a purple sky, she finds her way to a palace, where great riches and a whole new life are on offer. But it’s not long before Nura discovers this world to be as unfair as the real one, and that trickster jinn will always live up to their reputation...
