the golem and the jinniThis is a good historical fantasy novel, maybe recommended especially for people who liked Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell or Neil Gaiman’s American Gods.

“Combining elements of Jewish and Arab folk mythology, this stunning debut novel tells the story of two supernatural creatures, Chava, a golem brought to life by a disgraced rabbi, and Ahmad, a jinni made of fire, who form an unlikely friendship on the streets of New York until a fateful choice changes everything.” – Summary
