Vera is a young archaeologist with a determination to prove herself in the field. While on a dig with her father, they happen to stumble across an ancient ruin that releases a jinni through a doorway between the worlds. Out of naivety and sympathy, Vera befriends the ancient creature only to realize the dark, nightmarish truth behind classic fairy tales of the Genie. The jinni's fascination with her quickly turns into dangerous obsession.

Soon mangled bodies begin turning up all over desert and Vera has no clue how to stop it. When the jinni begins to posses her friends and threaten their deaths, Vera finds herself desperate to end the madness.

Wow, I must say I'm impressed. This story pulls me in and i've only read the first chapter. And the way you describe things and objects is amazing! I feel as if I am there myself. Keep up the good writing! Can't wait to start with chapter 2!

i smell trouble! Your writing has improved a lot. My only criticism here was the use of the passive voice. I am definitely excited to see who that snake is :)

@Katrina_Crane ok good!!!! I love the premise of of this. I want to write something in this genre, but I have to work on my world-building...that and I never seem to have clever concepts for supernatural stuff!

This story is going to be extra creepy to me, since in my culture, we believe in Dijinn, and it's a kind of a hush-hush topic, unless it's spoken about to spook each other.
