"A modern fantasy that draws equally on Egyptian folk tales and current cultural tensions"
-Los Angeles Times Book Review

"This well-crafted magic-realist graphic novel set in modern Cairo delivers one of the more impressive debuts in comic in recent years"
-School Library Journal

A stolen hookah, a spiritual underworld, and a genie on the run change the lives of five strangers forever on the streets of the Middle East´s largest metropolis.

Cairo interweaves the fates of a drug runner, a down-on-his-luck journalist, an American expatriate, a troubled young student, and an Israeli soldier as they race through bustling present-day Cairo to find and artifact of unimaginable power, on protected by a dignified jinn and sought by a wrathful gagnster-magicina. But the vastness of Africa´s legendary City of Victory extends into a spiritual realm and even darker powers lurk there.
