Publisher's Summary

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. With his career on the line, he reluctantly summons his only hope for success, the 5,000-year-old wise-cracking djinni Bartimaeus.

The duo is reunited just in time: the Resistance is growing more audacious than ever. And to make matters worse, a seemingly invulnerable clay golem is wreaking destruction throughout London, sending the entire city into pandemonium. With time running out, the young magician and his uncontrollable djinni must find the source of the golem's power, a task they quickly learn will involve much more than they ever anticipated.

In the ensuing chaos, Nathaniel and Bartimaeus will be chased through the streets of Prague, hunt a dancing skeleton across London's skyline, encounter the horror of the dreaded Night Police, and meet a surprising new ally. Together, these three will have to go head-to-head with the fearsome golem before the mysterious identity of its master is finally revealed.

    "Must listen if only to keep the series going."

    I have noticed that the second book of every trilogy seems to be the weak link and this one is no exception. The characters are still engaging but the author is holding his cards a bit too close in anticipation of the final book. Still, you have to keep the flow going so it can't be missed and it's worth the ride.

    "Scattered"

    The story was scattered and jumped around a good bit. This book is not nearly as good as the first in the series. The author missed an opportunity to give the reader more insight into the thinking of John Mandrake's character.

    "Not Quite as Good as Book 1"

    but still a wonderful and entertaining book.
    I am looking forward to book 3.
