Publisher's Summary

Three years after the events of The Golem's Eye, the young magician Nathaniel is an established member of the British Government.But he faces unprecedented problems: foreign wars are going badly and Britain's enemies are mounting attacks close to London.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.

Loved it 3 times over!

Wow, what an ending! It was better than I expected! I am a 39 year old male that likes Neil Gaiman type books along with Dean Koontz and Stephen King, but this series was incredible and I am now a huge fan! Good from 9-109 years of age!

A Thrilling Conclusion

Bartimaeus is back yet again and with a wit as sharp as ever. The personality of the characters in the story are further developed and by the time the story is over you truely feel a bond between yourself and the characters. With that, the emotional ending and the fantastic reading done by Simon Jones provide for a marvelous finish to a spectacular story.
