The Amulet of Samarkand

by Jonathan Stroud

In Brief

Nathaniel is a young apprentice magician in a parallel modern London, determined to have his revenge for an unbearable humiliation. He summons Bartimaeus, a witty, sarcastic 5,000 year old djinni, to steal the Amulet of Samarkand from his enemy, setting in motion a series of unexpected, dangerous and fast-paced adventures.

Why you should read it

The first book in the Bartimaeus trilogy is a highly entertaining mix of fantasy, thriller and comedy. Let the story carry you in a whirlpool of magic, gripping adventures, powerful spirits and greedy magicians, and be ready to fall victim to Bartimaeus’s effervescent narration!
