    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.

    Maya is hiding in plain sight in London. The 26-year-old has abandoned the dangerous obligations pressed upon her by her father and chosen instead to live a normal life. But Maya comes from a long line of people who call themselves Harlequins, a fierce group of warriors willing to sacrifice their lives to protect a select few known as Travelers.

    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!
