Amelia accidentally breaks an ancient bowl and discovers a ring. When Amelia puts on the ring, she summons a genie or djinni. It seems so funny to me that Amelia's first thought is making wishes for small home repairs and then saving the environment. If I found a genie, my first wish would be to win the lottery. Amelia thinks it is wrong that Al-Marid is enslaved. The genie and the woman have an instant attraction to each other. Amelia unwittingly released a monster called a lilit when she broke the bowl. A succubus that preys on men and causes miscarriages in women. Amelia and Al-Marid have adventures and deepen their romantic connection. This was a fun little story. I thought Amelia was really funny. 4 stars.
