Increasingly distracted, he is treating Bartimaeus worse than ever: the long-suffering djinni is growing weak from too much time in this world, and his patience is at an end. Meanwhile, undercover in London, Kitty has been stealthily completing her research into magic and Bartimaeus' past. She hopes to break the endless cycle of conflict between djinn and humans, but will she be able to get anyone to listen?
Before any of these problems can be resolved, disaster strikes London from an unexpected source, and the destinies of Bartimaeus, Nathanial, and Kitty are thrown together once more. They have to face treacherous magicians, a long-fermented conspiracy, and an enemy from 'The Other Place' that threatens London and the world. Worst of all, they must somehow cope with each other.

Exceptional book, fantastic listen
In a word- enthralling. Absolutely enthralling. Despite my best efforts to the contrary, I was pulled in to and wrapped up in the story. Better by far than its predecessors, this last book in the trilogy is an exceptionally well-crafted book. Masterfully contrived, complimented by an equally skilled narrator, this is one of the most enjoyable books I have had the pleasure to listen to.

I chose to listen to this trilogy for a Young Adult Literature class in my program of study. What a great way to log 45 hours of audio-listening pleasure! Simon Jones absolutely nails each character - Bartimaeus, most magnificently. I had no idea going into it that this wise-cracking demon would win my heart so easily. At times the story gets bogged in details, and I could never really tell what time period in which it took place, but the third book wrapped everything up nicely with a somewhat startling ending. I was truly sad when it was over.
