Bearer of the Pearls
Terry P Faust, author
Imagine if the king of evil genies was searching for you with deadly intent. Only through the tragic chance of becoming an orphan have you been saved . . . so far. For teenager Wendy Adair, this is reality: no home, no parents, and no idea why a gang of genies is willing to kill her. Without intending it, she holds the key to a mystery that began with an ancient Islamic legend, and finishes with a bizarre pile of dead mussels and a dramatic duel between good and evil. To save herself, Wendy must draw on her untested inner strength and a heart that has been scarred by the death of her father. In the process she discovers a new family, and the meaning of love.
