Angels and Djinn, Book 1: Raziel's Shadow

Novel by Joseph Robert Lewis



The young falconer Zerai thought he was a long-lost prince. He thought he would be granted supernatural powers to slay an army of demons. He thought he would reclaim his grandfather’s empire. He thought wrong.

After years of living in the wilderness with other orphans, hiding from killer mercenaries and monsters, Zerai has lost all of his friends, leaving him alone on a quest to save his country. But even after he joins a company of legendary warriors and seers from the east, his chances of success seem bleak against the vast southern armies, packs of bloodthirsty ghuls, and huge fiery ifrits that have claimed his homeland. 

As they journey through towering forests, vast savannas, and the mountains of the mysterious djinn, Zerai learns that he is not the great hero he had hoped to become. Instead he finds love in the arms of a young warrior woman struggling to accept that she may soon die. And with a humble heart, he arrives at a cursed city shrouded in darkness, where a witch queen has found immortality in the corpse of a fallen angel.

Drawn from elements of African history and mythology and inspired in part by the Arabian Nights, the epic fantasy series ANGELS AND DJINN takes readers to a dark world with heroes and lovers who are all too human, confronted with the fantastical and horrific creatures of a supernatural realm drawn from the strangest of dreams and worst of nightmares.


Joseph Robert Lewis enjoys creating worlds in which history, mythology, and fantasy collide in new and exciting ways. He also likes writing about heroines that his daughters can respect and admire, characters who blaze their own paths with bright minds and unbreakable spirits.

Joe was born in Annapolis and went to the University of Maryland to study ancient novels, morality plays, and Viking poetry. Outside of the world of fiction, he works with a lot of smart people to write and publish books about technology, software, politics, economics, and history.
