Amadi, the Phoenix, the Sphinx, and the Djinn
It’s finally there (after telling so much about it on Twitter already). “Amadi, the Phoenix, the Sphinx, and the Djinn” by Katharina Gerlach
Genre: YA fantasy
About: Thief-in-training Amadi has to steal the phoenix, befriend a sphinx, and rescue a djinn to fight a power-hungry sorcerer before she learns that women are not inferior to men.
Amadi realizes how much she hates being a girl when her half-sister is unwillingly engaged to an elderly gold-smith. She manages to become apprenticed to a thief where she lives as a boy more often than not. But when her Helping Hand is murdered, her oath of revenge lands her smack dab in the path of an assassin hired to kill her and a jackal-headed god with the same purpose. Now, her only defense is the threadbare tunic of a young man and her training as a thief.
The story is available in one volume or in three separate volumes. It is also available in German.
