    Unlike the legendary ueen Scheherazade market place storyteller Abu Nuwas does not have to worry about being executed once a story is finished but he does have to worry about where his next meal is coming from Even though he’s not a big eater it’s nice to have something and that takes money or some other type of tradable commodity Abu therefore uses the ueen’s trick of breaking off just at a good bit so paying customers will come back to hear the rest of the story The adventures of Setara are well suited to this and in lieu of a coin Abu receives a packet of spice from a poor young spice seller named Najda each time he tells her about Setara a rich merchant’s daughter whose friends include a genie a flying fire breathing horse a dragon a merboy and some demons With friends like that Setara’s life is anything but dull and Najda enjoys being taken away from the problems of her own life She eagerly waits for Abu to ‘go on’ every time he stops Readers will too A great book for ages ten and up

    A series of tales told Scheherazade style by an old storyteller in a marketplace recount the adventures of the teenage Setara and the genie who adopts her because he needs a master Together they have all sorts of adventures meeting pirates two benevolent demons of the water and stone variety a couple of flying horses a dragon demon and finally the world beneath the sea complete with an oceanic duel with swordfish and octopuses as weapons Along the way they even meet Vlad the Impaler who turns out to be not so terrible after all Setara meets her true love in that undersea world and at the end of the story the old healer and teacher Wafai is introduced which leads the reader into another book by the same author Faizah’s DestinyThe stories are fast paced full of humor and always positive in tone without overt moralizing The secondary plot about the girl to whom the old storyteller relates his tales also has a happy ending Much of the humor lies in sly word play particularly in the chapter titles such as Chapter Twenty Two In Which Setara Has a Bottle of Djinn Basit the Genie has been trapped in a bottle filled with an alcoholic beverage which makes him so drunk nobody can get him out of the bottleSetara’s Genie is an enjoyable read and I would have no difficulty giving this book to anyone but particularly girls from the age of ten up

    My critiue of the critiues of others One reviewer thought Scheherazade's 1001 Arabian Nights was better However the Arabian Nights stories were not written by a fictional princess trying to save her own life It's a variety of folk tales and fantasies written by many people over a long period of time like hundreds of years Various translators have selected which stories to include or not within their particular editionComparing my book to one not even written by a real person is clueless as to the facts If the reviewer tried out various translations of Arabian Nights I'm sure he could find some he liked better than others Perhaps his assessment was based on the Disney renditions of the various talesMy intent was to use a frame story like the Arabian Nights but unlike AN my stories ALL relate to the frame story's plot line When Najda worries about being forced into marriage Setara the adventurous girl of the tales also has ualms about the same situation In other words my book is a cohesive and fluid combination of the frame and the tales of Abu Nuwas

    Setara's Genie is a book of individual stories connected by the same characters having exciting adventures Abu Nuwas sits in the marketplace and tells his stories to any who will pay His biggest fan is Najda who sits enthralled while he spins the tales of Setara her genie and their friends The storyteller makes the problems Setara faces as she grows from adolescent to womanhood as like to Najda's own troubles as possible although cloaked in fiction He senses all is not well with the young spice sellerMarva Dasef brings the story to life in the way I have come to expect from her novels I found myself in the dusty marketplace living the story as Abu Nuwas' voice took me to Setara's home and further afield I became disappointed when he stopped talking in mid crisis and excited when the story took an unexpected turn Fantasy mixed with a modern style of Arabian Nights style stories bring a blend of intrigue and adventure which made me eager to continue reading Well done Ms Dasef I'm always eager to read your books and you haven't disappointed me yet

    When I started reading the Tales of Abu Nuwas by Marva Dasef I was immediatly charmed by the sweet innocent character of Setara Setara is a girl on the verge of womanhood itching to escape the clutches of her over protective father and explore the world beyond the walls of her homeAnd what a world it is filled with bandits pirates demons magic and djinn Dasef has created an Arabian Nights landscape of bazaars and palaces caves and stables A never was world of magic and adventure With the unreliable help of djinn Baset Setara befriends demons rescues a magical flying horse takes a cruise on a pirate ship and is sold as a slave Somehow it always turns out alright in the endDasef writes with verve and imagination gentle good humor and a positive attitude She's a fantasist who believes we solve our problems with courage friendship and personal action rather than magic Recommended for children of all ages

    Setara's Genie is the first Abu Nuwas book Abu Nuwas is a story teller In this novel he tells an eager audience the stories of Setara's Genie Setara finds a genie of the magic lamp type but he is remarkably reluctant to do for her anything she can do for herself Some of the magical things he actually does result in great hilarity like when she asks for and gets a handsome prince who loves her madly Setara grows from a teen you would roll your eyes at to someone whom you really likeA great book for pre teensyoung teens

    Interweaving the high fantasy of A Thousand and One Nights with the gritty reality of poverty Dasef creates a light adventure that does not lack for depthEach day Abu Nuwas sits in the bazaar telling stories to anyone who will give him food or coin Nadja walks the same bazaar selling tiny bags of spices Beginning with a single tale of how Setara found a djinn in exchange for a single bag of spice their friendship growsSetara is a rich merchant’s daughter who dreams of a life beyond the safe walls of her father’s compound When her first taste of adventure turns out to be less pleasant than she expected she realises a djinn who really cares about her welfare might cause trouble than one that twists wishes for its own amusementThe novel is formed of two parallel narratives the mundane challenges of being a poor spice girl and the fantastical adventures of a classical Arabic hero Switching between one and the other with the same regard for cliffhangers as Scheherazade Dasef hooks the reader while telling them to their face that Setara’s adventures are mere artifice This shifting between gritty reality and high fantasy also acts as a palate cleanser preventing the extremes of either from losing impact due to familiarityFor the most part Dasef’s portrayal of Arabic legend strikes a solid balance between uniue details of the culture and tropes common to all people making it accessible without being merely Western fantasy in turbans However some readers might find Setara’s dialogue too accessible in places while the diction of a modern teenager is greatly digestible than the convolution of Vathek and some other manufactured Arabesue fantasies it can seem out of place against a background of devious viziers and flying horsesApart from this potential anachronism Setara is a well written protagonist both sympathetic and archetypally heroic Filled with stories and hope at the start as each adventure proceeds she gains both strength and wisdom without losing her fundamental innocenceConversely Nadja starts the book both strong and realistic through necessity but lacking in hope Echoing without mirroring Setara’s emotional journey she struggles to reconcile her love for Abu Nawas’ tales with the sense that she should be doing something productive than listenAlthough the bazaar is the real world it is also a framing device for the tales producing the ironic—yet appropriate—situation of supporting characters in the real world being written in broad strokes while those in the fantasy are rendered in nuanced detailOverall I enjoyed this book I recommend it to readers seeking an alternative to Western fantasyI received a free copy from the author in exchange for a fair review
