The Golem's Eye

Series: The Bartimaeus Trilogy (Book #2)
by Jonathan Stroud

At only fourteen, Nathaniel is a rising star: a young magician who is quickly climbing the ranks of the government. There is seemingly nothing he cannot handle, until he is asked to deal with members of the growing Resistance movement who are disrupting London life with their thefts and raids. It's no easy task: the ringleader Kitty and her friends remain elusive, and Nathaniel's job — and perhaps his life — are soon at risk.

As the pressure mounts, he is distracted by a new series of terrifying attacks on the capital. But is it the Resistance again, or something more dangerous still? To uncover the perpetrators, Nathaniel must take desperate measures: a journey to the enemy city of Prague and, worse, summoning once again the troublesome, enigmatic and quick-witted djinni, Bartimaeus. A thrilling sequel to the best-selling book "The Amulet Of Samarkand".
