You're right on both counts.
I stopped reading once I had finished the primary section on the Jinn as an
alternate race - one furthermore that I had written some exploratory fiction
on - the Monature story.
I suppose I should've edited my posting a lot more.
Anyway, I suppose I should comment - for the benefit of those who know as much
or more than I do about the Bible - both the Hebrew and the Christian - that
belief in moderately powerful fire and nature spirits is still a feature of
Middle Eastern belief. This time though, it's not a seraph standing at the
gate of Eden with a fiery sword in its hand, it's something else.
Interesting if you wish to explore writing fantastic fiction based on any of
those religious backgrounds.
