Fans of the Bartimaeus sequence will devour this book - a cracking adventure brimming with magic, intrigue and a treasure trove of characters that the reader can't help but fall for. We find everyone's favourite irascible djinni serving at the court of King Solomon in 950 BC Jerusalem, where he is causing his customary chaos and must help a girl assassin sent by the Queen of Sheba to steal the all-powerful Ring of Solomon. The comic relief is perfectly timed, the dialogue sharp and snappy and the fiendishly clever plot perfectly handled with Jonathan's trademark flair and command of language. Thrills, chills and a danger-spiked finale make Ring of Solomon an absolute must-read.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Jonathan Stroud has created another winner in The Ring of Solomon, his latest Bartimaeus story. Wonderfully written and brilliantly plotted . . . Brilliant" * Bookseller *
"The voice is as funny as ever, but there are also passages of eerie beauty . . . Stroud has lost none of his dazzle" -- Suzi Feay * Financial Times *
"Wonderfully written and brilliantly plotted, this book provides an entertaining cast of characters and a satisfying denoument, with ends finally tied after many twists and turns. Bartimaeus himself is a brilliant creation, offering lots of comedy opportunities to the writer" -- Marilyn Brocklehurst * The Bookseller *
"May be the best one yet . . . Needless to say Bartimaeus is a tad resentful of the magicians and expresses his disgruntlement with wit, much sarcasm, and occasional magician-devouring" -- Susan Goundrey Kruse * Stories from the Web *

“By Annie, age 13”

I thought this was an amazing and humorous book which I would definitely recommend. I found it difficult to get into at first and the beginning wasn't as exciting as the rest of the book.

It is set in a time of... More

“By Holly, age 12”

This book is a very adventurous, imaginative tale, told as if it is really happening by some of the oddest characters you are ever likely to read about. Bartimaeus and Asmira are the two characters who tell the story.... More
