Castle in the Air is the second book in the Wizard's Castle trilogy.



Far away in a bazaar in the desert country of Zanzib, a young man named Abdullah lives the life of a carpet-seller. Romantic and dreamy, he often day-dreams of being a prince with an adventurous and tragic backstory. One day, a mysterious man comes to his booth and sells him what he claims is a magic carpet which can take him to any place he wishes to go. Though Abdullah is at first skeptical, he discovers the truth of it when the carpet takes him to the garden of a beautiful lady while he is sleeping.
