Mystery Meets the Arabian Nights

The Desert of Souls book cover It’s eighth century Baghdad and magic is real. A man dies in the street in front of a rich noble, his scholar and the captain of his guard. In the dead man’s possession is a perplexing object whose inscription cannot be ciphered. Dabir and Asim – scholar, soldier and unlikely friends – are tasked to translate the inscription and then retrieve the prize when it’s stolen. The Desert of Souls, by Howard A. Jones, is a historical adventure tale ripe with prophecies, an evil sorcerer, undead monkeys, the Tigress River, a lost city supposedly destroyed by God and epic swordfights. Don’t worry…there’s a sequel in the works.
