The Adventures of Jules Khan: A Teenage Muslim Superhero by Karim K Devji is an action-filled young adult fantasy with a strong spiritual thread which crosses all faiths. Set in the World War II era, it describes the coming-of-age of a superhero with fantastical powers while the theme of respecting people, regardless of religion, nationality, or culture, is emphasized throughout. Born in Europe of mixed religious and ethnic heritage, Jules is sent to a secret boarding school in Africa at the age of thirteen to learn martial arts along with spiritual and intellectual studies to prepare him to become the protector of a book that holds the secret to world peace. At eighteen, Jules heads to Harvard and is immediately pursued from one country to another by the warmongering National Weapons Association that wants the book. 

In The Adventures of Jules Khan, Devji gives us a teenage superhero for our times; a spunky and faith-filled young man who is a proponent of world peace through understanding what unites us. Although Jules is a Muslim superhero, the story is engaging for teens of any faith and Devji is respectful of all traditions. Prayer and meditation are as much Jules’ weapons against evil as the impressive superpowers he possesses. There are a series of violent encounters in the story, but Jules is always a defendant, not an initiator of it. The narrative is descriptive and moves along at a good pace. The story is told in Jules’ own words and laced with his charming sense of humor. My favorite scene is when he initially gains his powers. It’s pure fantasy and utterly beautiful in construction. An entertaining and thought-provoking read. I hope we see more of Jules and more from Devji.

The Adventures of Jules Khan – A Teenage Muslim Superhero, introduces the world to a fictional project that is shifting the narrative on how teenagers and adults consume faith, fiction and entertainment in mainstream media. This unique and creative story is a narrative on North America’s newest Superhero Jules Khan…

An enormous responsibility is bestowed upon Jules Khan. He is basically still a child and could not possibly fathom the true meaning of this responsibility. The whole of humanity is depending on him for survival. He must keep the book safe. Most importantly, he must keep the book away from the National Weapons Association. He will use his natural superpowers while relying on prayer and friends to remain grounded. He is about to uncover many secrets and find information that will rock him to the core. Will mankind be saved from the evil association?

Karim K Devji has crafted a thrilling and action filled tale of human triumph. He has masterfully woven a tale of a brave young man who is not expected to fulfill his role quite so efficiently but does so anyway with gusto and wisdom. He has told a story the only way it deserves to be told; with great energy. This story pulls in the reader right from the beginning. You get to meet fascinating characters and wander in the mind of Jules Khan freely. The author is a very vivid storyteller, using descriptions that are breathtaking.

As the story takes us through Jules’ journey of bravery, I was inspired by the lengths this young man goes to to bring peace to the world and his determination to instill the idea of respect for all regardless of their life choices or situations.

The book touches on numerous sensitive topics from religion to politics. In this era of over-sensitivity and overreactions, these are very difficult topics to converse about. However, the author navigates that particularly muddy puddle with expert ease. Everyone is represented in this book and does not focus on any one religion. The Adventures of Jules Khan – A Teenage Muslim Superhero is a wonderful adventure book that delivers a message of peace and respect to whoever reads it.

The story takes place in WWII era and captures the feel of the time and place well. The author’s commitment to the story and the intended message are announced in no uncertain terms by the simple brilliance with which the book is presented. It is rare to find a action packed book that would be suitable for both children and adults but The Adventures of Jules Khan- A Teenage Muslim Superhero is able to entertain and inspire.

Jules Khan should be a welcome addition to the MARVEL or DC Superhero Franchise as their newest Avenger or hero that uses his tremendous earth based superpowers and pluralism to easily handle the bad guys.

New York City Big Book Awards Review


Pluralism and faith are brought together.  Devji says we all have the light of God, a one source, but are of different races and cultures.  These differences are not to be feared, but should be respected and embraced.  Devji's point is most poignant in describing his idea of Pluralism through the analogy of water.  Individually as raindrops we have a separate purpose, but come together to create a common good for the betterment of the world.  An inspiring read for a younger audience to create a more open-minded approach to each other.
Below is a little more on the award process.
We have a number of rolling submission deadlines throughout the year.  There are a number of criteria in judging a book: design, editorial excellence, production quality and quality of idea to name a few.  We draw upon our relationships of literally thousands of contacts that like us have a vast knowledge of the marketplace, and the diversity and breath of publishing to give a framework to the decision-making process.  We make every effort to bring fairness and a high standard to every book we judge, hence why we have known industry leaders advise us in the awards.  We recognize that some books have outstanding qualities in every category but reserve the right to limit those that are designated “Winner.”  To that point, often there is more than one category a book excels, and believe these books are due recognition, so the notable category of “Distinguished Favorite” has been designed to highlight the title.  Distinguished Favorite is a high honor and something about which any author can and should be justifiably proud.  Readers recognize that Distinguished Favorite books are worthy of their attention and their book-buying dollars

The Adventures of Jules Khan: A Teenage Muslim Superhero is helping to create new generation of media that is more representative of today’s world. With wit, humor, and profound patience, Devji guides his hero through a variety of dire situations, including a number of battles taking place all across the globe. The book itself reads like a unique mix of Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson series and Paulo Coelo’s The Alchemist, sagely acknowledging that while teenage readers may be young, it doesn’t mean they can’t begin to ponder the strange, beautiful, and often frustrating world they live in. It is a contemplative journey of morality that oscillates between highly humorous and deeply tragic moments. Additionally, the text draws from numerous faiths like Christianity, Judaism, and Islam to ensure that a wide audience, from teenagers all the way to adults, can see themselves reflected in the story. It’s impossible to say where Devji’s series will go from here, but we’re looking forward to finding out.

Ummahsonic Reviews – The Adventures of Jules Khan

Added 1 year ago “What would you do if you held the power to help the entire world?” asks the blurb on the back of the book. And it is this question which the “The Adventures of Jules Khan” attempts to answer through its lead character Jules Khan….teenager, Muslim, human, superhero…Set during World War II and raised as an ordinary boy “Jules, Jules Khan,” finds himself attending an assassin training school. The school itself, based in Mombasa, has a rigorous and, quite frankly, gruelling curriculum. With lessons beginning at 3.30 am and not wrapping up till gone midnight, one wonders what modern day organizations such as Ofstead would make of this. But this does not faze Jules, who attends every class with vigor and enthusiasm.After permanently maiming the Headmaster with a broom handle following a three-hour brawl, he soon discovers that he has superpowers and actually holds the power to bring global peace…heavy. What follows is a journey of bravery, heroism and the bizarre.Having left the school for assassins the globetrotting Jules quickly circumnavigates the world, attending Harvard University for a grand total of one day, unlocking the secrets of his family and realising his life goal is to protect a “mysterious book” which inexplicably travels from country to country from the evil National Weapons Association…intriguing.The plot is fast paced and sometimes difficult to keep up with as Jules randomly appears in countries, encountering fleeting new characters for a matter of minutes. Similarly, the dialogue littered throughout the book could be stronger, and one can’t help but wonder if the author could have found more original ways of presenting the politeness and respectful nature of Jules than having him finish almost every sentence he speaks with the words “kind sir” or “kind lady.” Yet Deveji, the author, does successfully build suspense and leaves the reader on a real cliffhanger at the end.The “Adventures of Jules Khan” is definitely funny. The characters all have a certain je ne sais quoi to them which does help add to the entertainment value of the book. For example, the King of the Refugees, a humble genius, at one point makes an outlandish claim that he is developing a new currency called Bits of coin (sounds suspiciously familiar) based on an algorithm from 7th Century Persia…hilarious!Despite the sometimes bewildering nature of the book, it does bring a smile to your face. The book is trying to make a good point, that the overarching value promoted by all major religions is peace and it does champion diversity. As, the sometimes annoyingly preachy, Jules says, “God has created diversity in humans, and we need to respect and nurture this diversity to protect humanity.” We think it’s refreshing and great that someone has created a Muslim superhero who is advocating pluralism and for this, Deveji should be commended.Would we want to hang out with Jules? Absolutely not. But do we want to find out what happens next to this teenager gifted with such spectacular powers? Absolutely.Or as Jules would say it, “the fighting and adventures continue…”If you would like to purchase the book yourself, check it out on amazon.

A Teenage Muslim Hero: Jules Khan is the Son of a Jewish-Muslim Couple and Saves People, Regardless

A Teenage Muslim Hero: Jules Khan is the Son of a Jewish-Muslim Couple and Saves People, Regardless of their Background

‘The Adventures of Jules Khan – A Teenage Muslim Superhero’ is a fun fiction, action adventure project, written and created by Canadian Author and entrepreneur Karim K Devji. The young adult book chronicles the lives of Jules Khan and his personal bodyguards, Angelina and Klaus. This book focuses on one main theme: respecting all beings on Earth, regardless of nationality or religion.The story is a narrative about a young teenager who is the son of a Swedish, Jewish mum and a Persian, Muslim prince, set in the 1940’s. As the story unfolds, it takes on the same formula as the normal Marvel comic book hero.A teenager gains superpowers, from Mother Nature, to fight off the Evil National Weapons Association, as World War Two rages on. If we want to avoid more chaos and conflict in the future, we should embrace our human diversity. That is the central message in the story.Numerous teachers, teenagers and adults have started rating the book 8 out 10, as it is discusses sensitive topics, while remaining very entertaining and relatable.As there is still not enough diversity in American superhero movies, ‘the Adventures of Jules Khan’ is definitely leading the way to more inclusiveness.Multiple copies are being sent to movie houses to start the long term process of hopefully becoming one of North America’s unicorn success stories.Karim Devji, the author of the book, very humbled by the positive comments on his work, is excited about the results and hopes that it gets picked up by Marvel, DC, Walt Disney or other big studios.One of the US based editors for punctuation and grammar, Rachel Fogg, wrote that it is “an excellent book for teenagers and adults. Jules will remind everyone of the important things in life’.We, too, are happy about this initiative!  You can buy this book here.

 The Adventures of Jules Khan: A Teenage Super Hero Muslim adalah sebuah buku fiksi tentang aksi petualangan yang menyenangkan dari seorang Jules Khan. Buku ini diitulis dan dibuat oleh seorang Penulis dan pengusaha Kanada, Karim K Devji.

Ceritanya berisi narasi tentang seorang remaja muda yang merupakan putra seorang ibu yahudi asala Swedia dan seorang pangeran Muslim Persia. Setting kejadiannya pada tahun 1940-an. Ceritanya agak mirip dengan cerita-cerita  super hero dari Marvel

Seorang remaja mendapatkan kekuatan super dari alam untuk melawan kejahatan Asosiasi Senjata Nasional pada saat Perang Dunia II berkecamuk. Pesan utama dari buku ini adalah untuk menghindari lebih banyak kekacauan dan konflik di masa depan, kita harus merangkul keberagaman manusia yang ada di muka bumi ini.

Banyak guru, remaja, dan orang dewasa telah  memberi peringkat buku 8 dari 10, karena membahas topik-topik sensitif, sementara tetap sangat menghibur dan berhubungan. Berbeda dengan tema sejenis dalam film-film superhero Amerika, 'Petualangan Jules Khan' membawa kita menuju ke arah yang lebih terbuka.

Agradecimientos del autor 

1: El Rey

"Sonríe", dijo EL FOTÓGRAFO, antes de tomar las fotos habituales de la boda. La Orquesta Real tocó las piezas de jazz de Louis Armstrong, y el sol fluyó por todas partes; todos los invitados bailaban, cantaban y se divertían. 

Era un hermoso, soleado y fresco 7 de septiembre de 1925. Mis padres se casaron en el sur de Francia por un Príncipe Persa joven que vivía en Europa y poco después fue coronado Rey de los Refugiados. Lo llamaron Su Santidad Rumi Khan. Se rumoreaba que era un rey intelectual y místico, y era todo lo que no esperarías de un rey. Tenía un aspecto más europeo que indio o persa, ya que nació de una madre sueca y un padre persa. Este rey de la nueva era tan guapo, rico, sabio, humilde y elocuente como nadie. Hizo su fortuna a través de inversiones en el mercado de valores y mediante el desarrollo de algo llamado Pedazos de Moneda, o lo que llamó una nueva moneda futurista basada en algoritmos descubiertos en el siglo VII en Persia. "Nadie cree en la nueva moneda, pero con el tiempo, ¡No habrá tal cosa como el dinero!" proclamó él. Este rey era transparente con su riqueza, ya que nunca le robó a su propio pueblo como lo hacen la mayoría de los monarcas, religiones o gobiernos.

Este rey en particular no se ajustaba al perfil de ningún rey que conozco. Era un príncipe que heredó los problemas de su padre; no heredó riqueza, fortuna o edificios, y además de esto, heredó un conjunto de seguidores leales pero desorganizados. Sin embargo, de manera lenta pero segura, a través del proceso de una educación oriental y occidental, este príncipe que se convirtió en rey transformó su comunidad alguna vez andrajosa en una de las comunidades más sofisticadas, ricas e inteligentes del planeta. Con su éxito llegó la responsabilidad, y eventualmente se corrió la voz en muchos países de que el Rey Rumi podría encontrar soluciones para que los refugiados globales se establezcan en el mundo occidental.Por supuesto, ningún ser humano en este planeta quiere cargar con otra persona, pero el Rey Rumi había heredado la responsabilidad de miles de refugiados, y vivir con este sentimiento todos los días debe haber sido oneroso y abrumador para el rey.

Sin embargo, este rey parecía estar bendecido con algún tipo de divinidad, porque constantemente sonreía, bromeaba y reía todo el tiempo mientras trabajaba 18 horas al día para su comunidad y humanidad. Era tan humilde como la Madre Teresa y Mahatma Gandhi, y escuchaba a sus seguidores en lugar de ordenarlos. La popularidad del rey Rumi se extendió por toda Europa; Los líderes mundiales, nobles e incluso personas comunes buscarían su consejo sobre cómo asentar a los refugiados de su propio país, independientemente de su fe o raza.

¡Hola! Mi nombre es Jules, Jules Khan, y sí, soy el personaje principal de esta historia. Soy un adolescente atlético de cabello rubio, ojos azules (y verdes) dotado de poderes de superhéroe. Haré todo lo posible para narrar esta emocionante aventura lo mejor que pueda, pero tengan paciencia conmigo y mi inmadurez; ¡Solo soy un adolescente!

Me dijeron que mis padres celebraron su boda en el Palacio del Rey Rumi con cientos de dignatarios y personas famosas que asistieron, ¡así como personas no famosas que estaban pasando por allí! Todos se unieron a la boda y me dijeron que bailaban, cantaban, comían y bebían. No se sirvió alcohol, ya que padres no beben alcohol; por elección propia, supongo.

Las palabras del rey a mis padres cuando él era el oficiante en la ceremonia de su boda fueron algo como esto: “Trabaja duro por tus hijos; trabaja duro por sus hijos y los hijos de sus hijos". ¡Guau, eso le enseñará a cualquier rey a aprender tener una vista panorámica todo el tiempo!

El rey estaba muy involucrado en la investigación intelectual y solicitaría la presencia de mi mamá y mi papá en muchas ocasiones. Incluso se sentía como si tuviéramos parentesco, ya que nos llevaron en secreto a su palacio muchas veces. Cada vez que estábamos en el Palacio, siempre me metía a escondidas a la biblioteca real, y me encantaba la sensación que brindaban todos los libros antiguos que estaban allí.

Mi madre vino de la realeza. Ella nació en una clase élite de familias judías. Su negocio familiar era la sastrería personalizada para los ricos y famosos. La familia de mi madre eran inmigrantes de Suecia. Sus padres fueron muy habilosos con sus manos, y a medida que más y más refugiados judíos ingresaban a Suecia, sus padres decidieron crear refugios hechos de lonas. Hicieron carpas que eran tan duraderas que decidieron abrir un negocio de confección personalizado de lonas, carpas y ropa. Bueno, el negocio de las carpas prosperó durante algunos años, pero la ropa a medida despegó como pan caliente.

Decidieron mudarse a Mónaco, en el sur de Francia, ya que tenían clientes de Francia que los convencieron de que las élites francesas comenzarían a arrojarles dinero por la ropa a medida. ¡Antes de darse cuenta, el negocio de la familia de mi madre despegó en Francia!

La Primera Guerra Mundial acababa de terminar hace unos años, y el mundo había sido testigo de una colosal pérdida de vidas; Muchas familias comenzaron a pensar en proteger a sus seres queridos. La familia de mi madre, por otro lado, era proactiva y había descubierto ingeniosamente cómo evitar que las gotas de lluvia, nieve y hielo penetren en las lonas en beneficio de los soldados y el público en general. Esto luego se extendió a descubrir ingeniosamente cómo hacer ropa protectora; más específicamente, hacer que la ropa cotidiana sea a prueba de balas y metralla en caso de que estalle otra guerra mundial. Estudiaron los patrones de material de seda de las telas de araña y cómo las telas dispersarían el impacto y absorberían los objetos voladores entrantes, como las moscas, sin romper la complejidad de la delicada telaraña.Con este descubrimiento, mi madre inventó un proceso mediante el uso de delicadas capas de hilo de titanio fundido con forma de hilo usando las mismas variaciones de la tela y luego cosiendo e integrando el titanio en los tejidos de lana y seda en la ropa. Entonces, ¡Voila! ¡Un invento de ropa a prueba de balas y metralla! La familia de mi madre no pudo satisfacer la demanda de sus prendas de protección personalizada.

Cuando tenía 5 años, uno de mis recuerdos era ver a mi mamá hacer agujeros en la ropa de mi padre, por supuesto, ¡él no estaba en casa! ¡Siempre pensé que de ahí provenían los lunares! 

Le pregunté: "Mamá, ¿es así como haces lunares?"

"No, Jules, estoy tratando de ver cómo proteger a las personas de las balas".

"Mamá, ¿las balas son caramelos?"
