    Two years have passed since young apprentice magician Nathaniel became famous by foiling the ruthless Simon Lovelace. Now 14, Nathaniel is ambitiously climbing the ranks of the magicians' government. The Prime Minister himself has placed Nathaniel in charge of capturing the Resistance, a group of unruly commoners working to undermine the magicians' empire. But after several failed attempts, Nathaniel is forced to admit he can't do it alone.

    Richard says: "great fun"
    "Better than the first!"
    Overall

    I really enjoyed this installment of the series. Its far better than the first, which I liked well enough to buy the second, but this one has much more in depth character development. We get to know Kitty much more, but hear less from Bartimaeus this time around. If you enjoyed the first book, it only gets better. Just bought the third.

    Mikael Blomkvist, crusading journalist and publisher of the magazine Millennium, has decided to publish a story exposing an extensive sex trafficking operation between Eastern Europe and Sweden, implicating well-known and highly placed members of Swedish society, business, and government. On the eve of publication, the two reporters responsible for the story are brutally murdered.

    David says: "irritatingly engrossing"
    "FABULOUS"
    Overall

    Loved the book, sat in the driveway listening to it because I could not get away! Done many many books on tape and this is by far one of the best narrators. I am trying with difficulty to find something to replace this and "The Girl w the Dragon Tattoo", with great difficulty. Could not praise the book and the narrator more.

    When Lyra and her daemon Pantalaimon decide to spy on a presentation her uncle, the commanding Lord Asriel, is making to the elders of Jordan College they have no idea that they will become witnesses to an attempted murder, and even less that they are taking the first steps in a journey that will lead them into danger and adventure unlike anything Lyra's unfettered imagination has conjured up.

    Nicholas Winn says: "Told friends and family"
    "Good enough that I bought the sequel"
    Overall

    I really liked this audio book. Its something I never would have picked up to read but I bought it primarily because I thought my boyfriend would enjoy it on a long car ride. I ended up getting into it. Its tough to get into but I enjoyed it enough to buy the sequel as well. Its a action packed story, I listened to it at the gym and it definatly kept me engaged and alert. The characters are a lot of fun, very complex. I would recommend it, but be sure to sample it first. My boyfriend turned it off because he hated the narrator's style. It didn't bother me but I could see his point. Enjoy!
