Very good! Ptolemy's Gate remains my favorite, but this was very enjoyable. And the reader for the audio book is FABULOUS. ( )

Such wit! A worthy addition to the Bartimaeus series. I chuckled throughout.

Bartimaeus reigns again in this hilarious and thrilling prequel! Very funny, extremely well-written and so exciting! Join our favorite djinni-about-town on an ancient adventure. ( )
  RStrickman | Jul 15, 2014 |
Bartimaeus is back! This is the fourth novel featuring the willful, sarcastic Djinni and he is in fine form indeed. Set before the Bartimaeus Trilogy ("Amulet of Samarkand" etc) this tale focuses on King Solomon. A powerful Egyptian king who keeps his people in check by possessing a very strong spirit, trapped in a ring. Bartimaeus is at his typically irreverent best, savaging his master with his cutting wit and sharp tongue. This does not lead him to make many friends, and indeed leads to him falling into the grasp of an assasssin, a young woman sent to kill the king. Charged with an utterly hopeless mission, with sure death as its goal, Bartimaeus takes it all in his (grudging and sarcastic) stride and gives us a most entertaining tale indeed. ( )
