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.

    " I had read this series prior to listening to it. I just really enjoyed it and will look for more by this author. Really good reader, which of course makes all the difference. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Aidan Booklover | 2/19/2014

    " this was a great book, the only problem was that the ending was not very satisfying. If I could ask Jonathan Stroud anything in the world, I would ask him to wright a small novel about what happens to the cheeky djinn, the dashing politician, and the disturbed ex-adjitator after this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Helen L. | 2/18/2014

    " Good book, but why did Nathaniel not support Kitty's going to the Other Place? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Josiane Bergeron | 2/8/2014

    " As great as the first, I'm only disappointed in the main character personnality change. "

    " So to be fair, this was an interesting book and I enjoyed it, but the ending was so infuriating I had to rate it poorly. I felt like submitting a claim to the author to get all those hours of my life back! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shashank Garg | 1/20/2014

    " The first half of the book was BORING or it was fun but lacks event, but the second half ful of action and intresting events. I couldn't believe he ended the trilogy that way SOOO FUNNY "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elyse | 6/27/2011

    " It's no secret I love characterization. This, along with the Evil Genius Trilogy, may be one of the greatest explorations of character I've ever read.

    But also: T_T "
