The Golem's Eye

Written by Jonathan Stroud

The Golem's Eye Synopsis

Two years have passed since the events of The Amulet of Samarkand and the young magician Nathaniel is rising fast through the government ranks. But his career is suddenly threatened by a series of terrifying crises. A dangerous golem makes random attacks on London and other raids, even more threatening, are perpetrated by the Resistance. Nathaniel and Bartimaeus travel to Prague, enemy city of ancient magic, but while they are there uproar breaks out at home and Nathaniel returns to find his reputation in tatters. Can he rescue it from his Machiavellian adversaries in the government bent on his destruction? This title is a thrilling sequel in which the relationship between the young magician and the djinni remains as teasing and complex as ever.

The Golem's Eye Press Reviews

The alternating perspective between the three central character add depth, detail and humour to the action-packed thrills. - The Times; Wittily written with amusing footnotes, this is an exciting page-turner of a sequel. - Birmingham Post; Another sophisticated, sardonic satire... It is a fast-paced, frightening and funny and you don't want it to end. - The Bookseller; A vast plum pudding of a novel that improves with each mouthful. - The Independent; Fresh, downbeat, witty and wise, this novel is a worthy sequel to The Amulet of Samarkand. - TES
