From Brick & Darkness is a work of fiction in the urban fantasy and adventure subgenres. It is aimed at young adult readers and was penned by author J. L. Sullivan. The book follows Bax, a young man bored with his life who accepts the offer of a ring that was meant for his estranged father. When the ring speaks to him in his dreams, Bax unleashes the powerful djinn inside it in an attempt to make his wildest dreams come true. Unfortunately, the djinn inside the ring uses violence and manipulation to get Bax what he wants, leaving Bax in a desperate race to rid himself of his new patron before destruction reaches those he cares about most.
I absolutely adored the blend of mythologies, fables, and occult ideas that author J. L. Sullivan mixed together to create this original world and the story within it. This book quickly establishes itself as a fresh take on classic ideas with its own original twists and interpretations, and the resulting product is a roller coaster of an adventure that hooks the reader from page one and refuses to let go. Bax is a stunningly realized protagonist with the flaws of youth that many of us will recognize and even relate to. He leaps off the page with descriptive prose and dialogue, providing the reader with a perfect guide to the terrifying and dynamic narrative that From Brick & Darkness embarks on. An outstanding and original take on some classic and well-tried ideas, I recommend this book to all.
