They concern the adventures of the young prince Farhat and his friends, in search of the seven scattered pieces of the magical crystal called the Shariman.
The Shariman is a magic crystal which for thousands of years blessed a happy land with peace and abundance. Egokhan is an ancient demon who one fateful day desecrated the Shariman, causing it to shatter into seven pieces, fly away and become hidden in the most remote corners of the world.
What had been a rich and happy land was transformed into a sterile, forbidden desert, below which ancient secrets and huge oilfields lay dormant. But the time has come and the conflict between good and evil breaks out.
Farhat is a young nowadays Arab prince who, although he does not know it, is destined to reunite the scattered fragments of the magic crystal. A difficult and demanding destiny forces him to confront the terrible, dark, villainous and ruthless Egokhan, risen once more from the sands of the desert, and his treacherous ally, the oilman Rashid, head of the powerful Petroglobe.
Guided by an ancient manuscript, Farhat undertakes an incredible, adventurous journey across five continents, aided by three exceptional companions including Tilda, the brilliant, beautiful prodigy student from Oxford, Wings, the aged but lively scorpion, a capable alchemist who distills incredible potions through his tail, and Ben, his faithful and efficient butler.
When the magic crystal is finally put back together and the villains are defeated, Farhat discovers that the Shariman is the heart of an ancient machine which can produce unlimited clean energy. Peace and prosperity return to the desert and Farhat decides to give mankind the secret of the Shariman, although Egokhan has been turned to stone while Rashid waters the flowers in the royal prison, swearing eternal repentance, we know that evil does not die so easily.
