Contrary to myth, Jinn do not inhabit lamps and give three wishes. Instead, certain types of Jinn inhabit humans and wild creatures. Since the first great war of the heavens, the most feared and respected of the Jinn have been the Marid Djinns. We know them as Fates. In ancient times, they led soldiers on a suicide mission against an unstoppable Persian army and continued to work their magic on the battlefields of Rome.
Now, in present times, the Marid Djinns turn their focus to other pressing concerns—like young Banter Styles, for instance. Banter grows up detesting his super rich father and extravagant life of privilege. When he is attacked one day, he realizes the necessity for protection and studies weapons and self-defense instead of the family business.
He is haunted by strange dreams that a wise woman helps him solve. Eventually, his true purpose is revealed as he faces the three mythological Marid Djinns, rediscovering who he is and his potential. With their help, Banter can put his enemies underground, but the Marid Djinns wield great power with zero conscience. Can they be trusted as his allies, or will a battle between immortal gods lead to apocalypse and death?
