Djinn twins John and Philippa are off on another whirlwind adventure that takes them around the globe and into unknown worlds. And it's a race against time as they attempt to rescue their mother from her fate as the Blue Djinn of Babylon. An aging curse has been placed on their father and if the twins are gone too long, he'll rapidly become an old man. Meanwhile, museums all over the world are reporting robberies of valuable jade from their collections, as well as bizarre hauntings. As the twins and their friends travel around the globe on their rescue mission, they notice that something very strange is happening: An evil force has awakened the terracotta warriors created by an ancient Chinese emperor, and someone with very bad intentions has cast a spell possessing the soldiers with wicked spirits. And now, the very fate of the world hangs in the balance. Can the twins stop the mysterious terracotta warriors, rescue their parents, AND save the world before it's too late?

Every book in this series is awesome! There is a good plot, suspense, lots of twists. I like how the same characters are always there, but new ones come along too. The theme is also go.od. Very original

This is book four in the Children of the Lamps series and I have to say that this series is just getting better and better. This time John and Philippa are taken to Italy and China on their adventures.

I felt bad for the twins about their mother and really hoped that they could help her. In this book most of the characters from the previous books make appearance, Nimrod, Groanin, Mr. Rakshasas, Iblis, and of course twins mother and father. Also Buck makes an appearance in this book. I was very sad for Buck in this book and what happened to him. I hope that we see more of Buck and his problem.

This was interesting twist to the story line, it was fast paced, entertaining and very humorous. I love Nimrod and Groanin, they are very funny characters. I also enjoy the relationship that the twins have with Nimrod, Gronin and Mr. Rakshasas; they are great together. They have a lot of chemistry and I just love reading about them. I do not want to talk much about the plot because I do not want to give much away – but it kept me entertaining from page one to the end of the book.

Twins have grown a lot as characters thought the books, they are more mature but they are still children and do things children do. They are brave, smart, kind, funny and considerate ( I might have already said this about the twins in the previous reviews of this series). I am looking forward to reading the next books in the series, I have already put them on hold at the library – now just waiting till they arrive.

Overall this was an excellent read and I do not give five stars easily. This is five stars – it has everything entertainment factor, originality, humor, friendship, adventure, villains and much more. It you like Harry Potter than you will probably like this series as well – it is similar but it very original. So you do not have to worry about this book trying to become like HP. I give this book 5/5 STARS – Happy Reading.
