Three years on from the events in The Golem's Eye, the magicians' rule in London is teetering on a knife-edge, with strikes, riots and general unrest. The Prime Minister is largely controlled by two advisers, one of whom is 17-year-old Nathaniel. Meanwhile, living under a false identity, Kitty has been researching djinn; she has come to believe that the only way to destroy the magicians is with an alliance of some kind between djinn and ordinary people. Kitty seeks out Bartimaeus and embarks on a terrifying journey into the djinn's chaotic domain - the Other Place - which no human being has ever survived. But even as she does so, Makepeace engineers a dramatic coup d'etat. The outcome is a shattering of the magicians' control and all magical laws are turned upside down. Can Bartimaeus, Nathaniel and Kitty settle old scores if they are to survive and prevent the earth's destruction? The first in the Bartimaeus sequence is Amulet of Samarkand, the second is The Golem’s Eye and the third is Ptolemy’s Gate. The Ring of Solomon is the fourth one in the sequence and the series has a loyal adult as well as young adult fan base.

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

Reviews

Bartimaeus
razor

-sharp wit is as irresistible as ever and this is a fantastic conclusion to the series * The Bookseller * There are many delights to savour in this series. First and foremost, the wonderful, sardonic voice of the all-knowing and all-weary Bartimaeus * Independent * As witty and orginal as the first two books in the series, Ptolemy's Gate is fast, funny, inspired writing for children at its best * Publishing News * Stroud demonstrates here that what and how he writes should never be taken for granted * TES * The return of one of my favourite ever characters . . . Completes the brilliant Bartimaeus trilogy * Publishing News *

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.
