Re Salomone ha tredici maghi e un'infinità di demoni ai loro ordini. Fra questi c'è Bartimeus, incaricato di scovare inestimabili tesori. Nel frattempo, la Regina di Saba invia a Gerusalemme una giovane guerriera con una doppia missione: uccidere il re e impadronirsi dell'anello magico, l'amuleto più potente di tutti, perché chi lo possiede può distruggere un intero mondo solo con il pensiero. Ecco allora dispiegarsi biechi intrighi e spettacolari battaglie, mirabolanti trasformazioni, continue sorprese e un'incredibile caccia al tesoro...

(B) 72% | More than Satisfactory Notes: Its new setting adds nothing: unoriginal, it relies on stock children's themes and another flat rehash of series formula.
I love love love this book! Please please PLEASEEEEEE Jonathan Stroud, write another prequel/sequel/epic poem/play/novella/memoir/thesis/whatever of Barty! We, his adoring fans, could never get enough of him! Ok, back to the book. This is your typical Barty-like adventure. High-speed chases, extreme d Leggi tutto
Revisiting the world of Bartimaius, fans will be rewarded with everything we loved about the original books: a fast-paced, entertaining adventure with a satisfying ending. Most importantly, there's Bartimaius himself, back with his footnotes and customary cheek. Bartimaius is one of the most unforge Leggi tutto
It's Jerusalem, 950 B.C.E., but, much to our sheer delight, Bartimaeus could have been Dismissed out of 21st century London only moments ago. It seems that two millenia are nothing for this sharp-talking djinni, for Bart's as charmingly insolent as ever. And Bartimaeus really is the highlight of the Leggi tutto

Oh Barty, we love you. This book is hilarious, funny, and exciting. I think Barty is the most beloved fantasy character Leggi tutto
When I finished The Bartimaeus Trilogy, I was hungry for more. Adding on to the trilogy would probably have been a disaster, but creating a sister book with the same humorous cheek of Bartimaeus', and living his adventures before his days with Nathaniel, was genius!!!! I started reading with a smile Leggi tutto
Maybe it’s the heroic rogue of a main character, or the Arabian setting, or possibly even the Disney logotype on the spine of the jacket, but I got to thinking about the animated feature Aladdin. The first ten minutes of that movie contain a sprawling musical action set piece in which we learn that Leggi tutto
FAN-TAS-TIC!!! Can't wait to read the three other books! Jerusalem, 250 B.C.E, King Solomon is ruling his kingdom with an iron fist (or a very powerful ring to be more specefic), demanding immnense revenues after terrorising other kings and queens of far off lands. Magicians, recognizing the supreme p Leggi tutto
Don't know what to say about this book except that is one of the best ones out there! I'm a big fan of Bartimaeus since I was a child, and imagine how thrilled I was when I found out Jonathan Stroud wrote one more book about Bartimaeus! I was amazed by this book, and I have to say that with years, Jon Leggi tutto
