The Amulet of Samarkand

Book Description
When the 5000-year-old djinni Bartimaeus is summoned by Nathaniel, a young magician's apprentice, he expects to have to do nothing more taxing than a little levitation or a few simple illusions. But Nathaniel is a precocious talent and has something rather more dangerous in mind: revenge. Against his will, Bartimaeus is packed off to steal the powerful Amulet of Samarkand from Simon Lovelace, a master magician of unrivaled ruthlessness and ambition. Before long, both djinni and apprentice are caught up in a terrifying flood of magical intrigue, murder and rebellion.

About the Author
Born in England, Jonathan Stroud always had a love of fantasy literature. So when he moved from an Editor at Kingfisher Publishers to a full-time writer he started off on a quest to write the type of literature he would have enjoyed as a child. His first book Buried Fire, published in 1999, was a fantasy tale of good versus evil.
