The tremendous climax of the Bartimaeus sequence. Three years on from the events in The Golem's Eye, the magicians' rule in London is teetering on a knife-edge, with strikes, riots and general unrest. The Prime Minister is largely controlled by two advisers, one of whom is 17-year-old Nathaniel. Meanwhile, living under a false identity, Kitty has been researching djinn; she has come to believe that the only way to destroy the magicians is with an alliance between djinn and ordinary people. Kitty seeks out Bartimaeus and embarks on a terrifying journey into the djinn's chaotic domain - the Other Place - which no human being has ever survived. But even as she does so, Makepeace engineers a dramatic coup d'etat. The outcome is a shattering of the magicians' control and all magical laws are turned upside down. Can Bartimaeus, Nathaniel and Kitty settle old scores to prevent the earth's destruction?

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Bartimaeus' razor-sharp wit is as irresistible as ever and this is a fantastic conclusion to the series" * The Bookseller *
"There are many delights to savour in this series. First and foremost, the wonderful, sardonic voice of the all-knowing and all-weary Bartimaeus" * Independent *
"As witty and orginal as the first two books in the series, Ptolemy's Gate is fast, funny, inspired writing for children at its best" * Publishing News *
"Stroud demonstrates here that what and how he writes should never be taken for granted" * TES *
"The return of one of my favourite ever characters . . . Completes the brilliant Bartimaeus trilogy" * Publishing News *
