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
