While completing dissertation work in Morocco, student Andrew Marcus finds himself in a foreign land and among people he sees with condescension, when an alien armada -the Kibrani- invades Earth. From that moment his life forever changes, not only because of the obvious menace that threatens with annihilating the world's population, but also because he will finally see humanity as a single people. And who will help Andrew through this journey, you may ask? Well, how about a long forgotten race of genies!

Using elements from the rich Arabian mythology as backdrop, "Jinnrise" explores the magic realm of jinns as they become Earth's last hope against the Kibrani. Tony Vassallo's artwork in this introductory chapter is literally explosive, always fluid, and made even more electrifying thanks to Timothy Yates' colors. Despite its grandioseness, all the alien ships, and the flying genies, it's clear that the premise of the title is to deliver a message of unity, and any book that is entertaining and has a moral is worth a shot. Great beginning!
