What? WHAT???!!! . . . No, you can't end this well written, thought provoking series this way -

*Sobs and seeks out Hagen-das to dull the pain*

OK, I understand it is Stroud's excellent writing that has made me emotionally invested in the main human character's journey (from a selfish child-genius, to an actual, do-the-right-thing HERO) and they are all his characters to ultimately do with as he will - but seriously - f... fu... fuck that ending.

*continues to sob into a container of melted ice-cream while confused husband slowly and carefully backs away* ( )

This is the third in a series of books about magicians who lead all the great governments, oppress the non-magicians (commoners) and enslave the djinis.This book follows the Amulet of Samarkand and the Golem's Eye. My favorite part of the books is the way Stroud weaves historical events and figures into the the stories. This technique makes me go and look things up and read about them.

One thing I noted in listening to this book in 2010 is that the council doesn't acknowledge that Nathaniel has gotten them out of pretty major scrapes in the past (previous 2 books) and doesn't give him the benefit of the doubt. Are they morons? Blind? ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 078683868X, Paperback)

Three years have passed since the magician Nathaniel helped prevent a cataclysmic attack on London. Now an established member of the British Government, he faces unprecedented problems: foreign wars are going badly; Britain`s enemies are mounting attacks close to London; and rebellion is fomenting among the commoners. Increasingly imperious and distracted, Nathaniel is treating Bartimaeus worse than ever. The longsuffering djinni is growing weak and vulnerable from too much time in this world and is nearing the end of his patience. Meanwhile, Nathaniel`s longtime rival Kitty has been stealthily completing her research on magic, demons, and Bartimaeus`s past. She has a daring plan that she hopes will break the endless cycle of conflict between djinn and humans. But will anyone listen to what she has to say? In this glorious conclusion to the Bartimaeus trilogy, the destinies of Bartimaeus, Nathaniel, and Kitty converge once more. Together the threesome faces treacherous magicians, a complex conspiracy, and a rebellious faction of demons. To survive, they must test the limits of this world and question the deepest parts of themselves. And most difficult of all-they will have to learn to trust one another.
