Shelf Awareness calls The Djinn Waits a Hundred Years ‘marvelous literary tableau’

Shelf Awareness just posted a stunning review for my new novel.

Here’s an excerpt: ‘Shubnum Khan is a spellbinding storyteller. Her subtly spooky debut is a marvelous literary tableau, offsetting an enchanting love story amid the opulent grounds of a palatial manor (once “the grandest house on the east coast of Africa”) with revelations of the mysterious tragedy that led to Akbar Manzil’s abandonment. As the drama cascades toward an astonishing conclusion, past and present collide, and truths tumble forth that will alter Sana’s existence, and the djinn’s afterlife, forever.’
