Karina Whitt and the Gateway to Jinetha
Just when Karina, a Russian-American archaeology student, decides that this supposedly exciting archaeology dig in Israel is more boring than a Monday morning pop quiz, she discovers an artifact that turns her world inside out.
The diamond-shaped relic she finds releases a genie that looks like the girl next door—but looks are deceiving. Unfortunately Jinnie, as she calls herself, doesn't grant Karina three wishes. Instead, she brings the news that Karina is the only one who can aid Jinnie in a life-and-death mission to save an entire civilization.
Suddenly Karina finds herself plummeting into a strange and perilous world called Jinetha. She joins forces with Jinnie to battle over control of an ancient energy source known as The Eye Of Divinity. On top of everything else, she learns that two mysterious guys from her archaeological dig are involved in this otherworldly mess. But can she trust either of them? Kalim, the local heartthrob who makes her knees weak, seems too good to be true. And she can tell that Lee, the Mossad operative, is hiding something.
Before she knows it, Karina is in way over her head. She’s not made of hero material. How can she possibly come through? But she has to at least try. She wouldn't be able to live with herself if she didn't. And the Jinetheans wouldn't be able to live at all.
