Earth Boy


Earth Boy


Sami Shah

Journeying to the world of djinns was never going to be easy; Wahid just didn’t know it would be this hard. Is his travelling companion – the Devil called Iblis – a worthy friend, or a sinister enemy? And what manner of underworld beast will assault them next as they look for the soul of Maheen? Whatever the answers are, Wahid sure isn’t in Karachi anymore. And if he fails, we will all fall to the coming of … Dajjal.

Earth Boy takes the fast pace of Fire Boy up a notch, delivering a stunning climax but also a meditation on what it means to grow up.

Praise for Sami Shah

‘Bold, compelling fantasy with a truly original setting.’ – Saladin Ahmed, author of Throne of the Crescent Moon

‘I was enchanted by his lyrical and atmospheric prose – he brings the streets of Karachi to life with a deft hand, ancient folklore colliding with the modern internet age.’ – Kylie Chan, author of White Tiger

‘Sami Shah blends the tenderness of Octavia Butler, with the supernatural folklore of Nalo Hopkinson. His characters – human and otherwise – are skilfully drawn, and the vibrant streets of Karachi are vividly brought to life.’ – Maxine Beneba Clarke, author of Foreign Soil
