The general premise is typical of YA/NA fantasy books (young woman in difficult circumstances discovers her special talents and mysterious origins and is the only one who can save the day/overthrow the bad guys) but Chakraborty makes it feel new with the story of the djinn. The characters were well developed and I enjoyed going from 18th century Cairo to the magical Daevabad - both settings richly described and believable.
