Marielle and Faris have risked it all for love: their safety, their lives, even humanity itself. Their mistakes are grave and the entire world is paying dearly. Akeelah has created a vicious, half-djinn army and is bent on killing every single human on the planet. Her powers are second only to her hatred. No one is safe, not when the creature's goal is to rule the physical realm. Only Marielle and Faris know how Akeelah built her army, and only they know how to destroy it. Marielle would rather forget the role she plays in this terrible game. She would rather run away with Faris, never to return-humanity be damned-but who is she kidding? There is no way she can let the evil Djinn win. Marielle's fate was sealed the day she unwittingly gave Akeelah the answers to her thousand-year-old questions. Now Marielle's guilt is too heavy to simply walk away. The fate of every citizen on Earth, especially her father, depends on her and the man she loves.
