The Ring of Solomon




This is fantasy at its most fantastic - Bartimaeus is back in this companion to the bestselling trilogy!

Fans of Jonathan Stroud's Bartimaeus books 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 irascibly insolent 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 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 - this is one of the publishing events of the year.

Praise for The Ring of Solomon

Jonathan Stroud has created another winner in THE RING OF SOLOMON, his latest BARTIMAEUS story. Wonderfully written and brilliantly plotted...brilliant.

The Bookseller

This tale of the irascible djinni causing chaos in Jerusalem around 930BC will not disappoint. 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

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

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
