I'm just looking for some feedback on how to make this sound better.

 

When he finished, he vanished. There was no smoke, no flash of light, and no trace of him remained. The coffee table returned to its original place. Abra, the King of all Djinn, was gone.

Before I started reading the answers, I thought, "Remove the and", so it does look like that's a general consensus. I might even put a fullstop, which would make it three short sentences. Then, perhaps the last two sentences could be joined to change the pace. But, I'd definitely move Abra was gone before the table moving back. Makes sense?
