I actually really liked the book, it had a couple of characters that you could warm to and root for. However, it lacked a certain depth, it sped along a bit too quickly at times and skirted over certain bits a little too often. Slow the pace down a bit, expand on the details slightly and make the characters more worthwhile and interesting and the book would be even better.
I'd be happy to read the series though.
A light read.
The writing is very fluent, the scenes are set like the writer has actually seen them and some of the descriptions of locations like beech and sea are remarkably established while not becoming a bit too much artistic and the pace of the events is never compromised.
Also the language is on par throughout and the overall flow of the story development seems like a key thing here along with magical settings and the characters do not seem over the top like in some other children's' stories.
An excellent read and thoroughly enjoyable. Thumbs Up!
It has everything a supernatural / fantasy reader needs!
Thrills, rides, bit of an epic history plot! But everything in it will keep you reading. The chapters are a fair size, character development is brilliant. I really cared what happened to them from a very early stage.
Over all, a fast paced, well written book that needs a sequel! Soon!
As an older reader, I would have liked to see a few more twists and turns within the story, since you sort of knew what the eventual outcome was going to be, and I did feel some of the scenes were glossed over a bit too quickly and could have used more explanation, a little more depth and flashing out, but for the target age range it is perfectly serviceable as it is, and even to the older reader it didn't harm the story to any great degree.
If you like adventure with just a dash of the fantastical you're sure to enjoy reading the Sea Djinn, and I'm looking forward to reading what I'm sure will be a successful series!
For a western child, the different location (it is set in Dubai) offer a sense of a new and exciting +place that is different from the London/New York big city so often used. Readers of The Golem's Eye,Ptolemy's Gate (Bartimaeus Trilogy) and The Amulet of Samarkand (Bartimaeus Trilogy) will enjoy this book, too.

Does any of the above sound familiar? LD has rehashed a familiar story line found in this genre; however she does add a few interesting and original elements. One of these is the unusual setting of Dubai; although I initially thought it to be is an unlikely location to meet a magical sea creature. The interaction between Finn, Georgie and Fred reminded me somewhat of the Harry Potter trio, whilst certain events are definitely as dark as those found in the later books of the HP series. With these unexpected darker moments in a predominantly light hearted fantasy book, "Sea Djinn" proved to be a fun read with a subtle twist at the end that will definitely surprise its reader.
