The tale is told of Jafar al-Sharif, master storyteller, who was forced to impersonate a wizard to save his life. When the curse of a true wizard, Akar, caused Jafar’s beautiful teenage daughter Selima to become intangible and to fade gradually from the world of the living, father and daughter traveled to the oasis of Sarafiq to seek the wisdom of the prophet Muhmad. They were assisted on this journey by Cari, a young female member of the Righteous Jann—lowest level of the ranks of the djinni—who is slave to the magical ring Jafar stole from the wizard Akar.
