Two years have passed since the events of The Amulet of Samarkand and the young magician Nathaniel is rising fast through the government ranks. But his career is suddenly threatened by a series of terrifying crises. A dangerous golem makes random attacks on London and other raids, even more threatening, are perpetrated by the Resistance. Nathaniel and Bartimaeus travel to Prague, enemy city of ancient magic, but while they are there uproar breaks out at home and Nathaniel returns to find his reputation in tatters. Can he rescue it from his Machiavellian adversaries in the government bent on his destruction? This title is a thrilling sequel in which the relationship between the young magician and the djinni remains as teasing and complex as ever. The first in the Bartimaeus sequence is The Amulet of Samarkand and the third is Ptolemy’s Gate. The fourth one, The Ring of Solomon, is recently published and is a spell-binding addition to the Bartimaeus sequence.

If you like Jonathan Stroud you might also like to read books by Eoin Colfer, Neil Gaiman and J K Rowling.

Reviews

The alternating perspective between the three central characters adds depth, detail and humour to the action-packed thrills * The Times * A vast plum pudding of a novel that improves with each mouthful * Independent * Fresh, downbeat, witty and wise, this novel is a worthy sequel to The Amulet of Samarkand * TES * Readers can rest easy: this sequel is no pale imitation of its predecessor. The Golem's Eye is another sophisticated, sardonic satire . . . Fast paced, frightening and funny, and you don't want it to end * The Bookseller *
