Synopses & Reviews
Two years have passed since young apprentice magician Nathaniel became famous by foiling the ruthless Simon Lovelace. Now fourteen, 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 cant do it alone. With his career on the line, he reluctantly summons his only hope for success-the 5,000-year-old .
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 golems 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 Londons skyline, encounter the horror of the dreaded Night Police, and meet a surprising new ally. Together, these three will have to go heah-to-head with the fearsome golem before the mysterious identity of its master is finally revealed.
The magician Nathaniel's fledgling career in government is imperiled by a series of mysterious attacks on London. Once more he is forced to summon his powerful djinn, Bartimaeus, to help him out in this second adventure in the Bartimaeus Trilogy.
