The Eye of the Forest (Children of the Lamp Series #5)

The Eye of the Forest (Children of the Lamp Series #5) by P. B. Kerr
When a collection of Incan artifacts goes missing, the Blue Djinn of Babylon dispatches the twins and Uncle Nimrod to recover them. Along the way, though, John and Philippa encounter their friend Dybbuk, who was drained of his djinn powers but is determined to get them back. In a fury, he's headed to an ancient Incan Empire where he believes he can regain his strength. Dybbuk will stop at nothing . . . even if it means destroying the rain forest, opening a cursed portal, and disturbing the enchanted kingdom of the Incas that has slept for thousands of years.. Find out more about P.B.Kerr here.

...Vampire plants, gestalt slippers from Kublai Khan, and a variety of other strange and fascinating items keep The Eye of the Forest entertaining right through to the end – which, in typical series fashion, makes it clear that there will be more djinn adventures to come.

...kind of disappointing...I've followed all of the Children of the Lamp series and none disappointed me, until now. The storyline didn't engage me as well as the others. The plot seemed to drag on until the last couple of hundred pages. And then there was the ending. It wasn't really like the author to leave a book with such a huge cliffhanger, and the fact that I have to wait 1-2 year(s) to find the conclusion is totally frustrating. (I suppose that was Kerr's intention)...I'm really hoping however, that the author gets his old act together for the next book.

Another great read in the Children of the Lamp series. I thought it was very exciting and had quite a few twists and turns. I am fascinated by Dybbuk, not your typical good vs evil character. I look forward to the next book in the series to see what becomes of him and what the twins get into next.
