Loulie al-Nazari is the Midnight Merchant: a criminal who hunts and sells illegal magic. When she saves a cowardly prince, she draws the attention of his powerful father, the sultan, who blackmails her into finding an ancient lamp that has the power to revive the barren land – at the cost of sacrificing all jinn. With no choice but to obey, Loulie journeys with the sultan’s oldest son, who unbeknownst to her is actually the prince that she saved in magical disguise. Aided by Loulie’s bodyguard, who has secrets of his own. In a world where story is reality and illusion is truth, Loulie will discover that everything – her enemy, her magic, even her own past – is not what it seems, and she must decide who she will become in this new reality.
