Overview

Return to the magical land of the Arabian Nights....

The end of "Aladdin of the Lamp" finds the cunning Aladdin ruler of a great kingdom. Now, many years have passed...

Aladdin is older, richer and wiser...and heart broken, and after losing his beloved wife and son to foul play, he resigns from being king and sets out to do what he does best...

Now working as an anonymous relic hunter using the name Niddala (Aladdin spelled backwards), he's hired by a desperate-and beautiful-noble woman named Jewel to rescue her kidnapped son. Prince Zeyn, a powerful wizard from the magical land of Djinnland, has designs on Aladdin's kingdom, and Jewel's son is to be the final piece of a bloody plot to rule two worlds.

To save the boy and his kingdom, Aladdin soon realizes he must seek the aid of a once-powerful ally, the mighty Djinn of the Lamp. Unfortunately, the djinn is being held prisoner by Zeyn in Djinnland, a magical land full of dragons and ogres, magic carpets and magic castles. With time rapidly running out, Aladdin and Jewel will journey into a world far stranger than anything they had ever imagined, a world full of danger at every turn, a world in which they may never return. It will take all their cunning and wits to stay alive...but will they do so in time to save the djinn, her son, and a kingdom?

From bestselling authors Piers Anthony (Xanth) and J.R. Rain (Vampire for Hire), Aladdin Relighted is the first in a magical series featuring Aladdin and his Extraordinary Lamp.

    Good intro to what I think is heading to a series

    I hope I not giving away what I thought was obvious content in the book, so if you are concerned about knowing too much, stop reading here.

    I loved Piers Anthony's "Xanth" series when I was younger, and I greatly enjoy J.R. Rain's books. However, I have to admit, this one fell a bit short for me. The reasons, however, are not because of the lack of content, but too much unnecessary content. I felt the story was strong and enjoyable and the characters very likeable, and the splatter of humor here and there a nice comic relief. The parts that somewhat deterred me from total enjoyment were the constant and sometimes misplaced sexual references and innuendos. It killed any romance aspect for me because there really was no "foreplay," for lack of a better term, in the relationship between the characters. We understood early on the main character's issues and the continuing references were a bit overused. Also, the female character's electric sexuality and her use of her wiles after suffering a great deal at the hands of men I thought were a bit misguided from a male perspective in relation to a woman's true feelings from suffering such a victimization and then using the same so freely to get what she needs.

    I could definitely see both writers' form in this book and I do look forward to the next book. For a first collaboration I enjoyed the read and thought for the length it had a great deal of action and storyline.

    Lastly, and I make this reference because it is a HUGE pet peeve of mine, whoever did the editing needs to go back to editing school. There were huge, obvious editorial mistakes, and in one part two dragons are battling and the "black" dragon is chasing itself...in fact it should have been called the "red" dragon, which was actually chasing the "black" dragon. I counted about 6 blatant editorial errors before the first half of the book and then started highlighting them on my Nook after that. This is very common in many books lately, and I believe publishers, or whoever is in charge of hiring editors, need to hire some competent individuals. It is not author specific by any means, and I never noticed such bad editing until the last ten years or so. I am not English major by any stretch, but if I can pick out the errors, someone on their end is dropping the ball.
