Book Review: Master of the Jinn, a Sufi Novel by Irving Karchmar

January 18, 2007

Irving Karchmar’s Master of the Jinn takes us on a journey that twists and turns through self, soul, sea and desert in search of an ancient artifact common to Judaism, Christianity and Islam: King Solomon’s Ring.

A tale of old friends and new friends, brought together by a Sufi Master, to embark on a quest in search of this magical ring.  A ring given by God to Soloman.  A quest that would lead to mystical worlds and mystical beings: the Jinn.

A quest that would bring each of the charachters to a deeper understanding of self and soul.  A tale capable of drawing in it’s reader into this search.  A tale which will leave it’s readers pondering the heart long after the tale is finished.

A book I look forward to passing along to my daughters.
