Nathaniel is a magician's apprentice, taking his first lessons in the arts of magic. But when a devious hot-shot wizard named Simon Lovelace ruthlessly humiliates Nathaniel in front of his elders, Nathaniel decides to kick up his education a few notches and show Lovelace who's boss. With revenge on his mind, he summons the powerful djinni, Bartimaeus. But summoning Bartimaeus and controlling him are two different things entirely, and when Nathaniel sends the djinni out to steal Lovelace's greatest treasure, the Amulet of Samarkand, he finds himself caught up in a whirlwind of magical espionage, murder, and rebellion.

Awesome serious! Great humor and wit and love the world Stroud created. Great stuff, one of my favorites for YA fantasy series. Highly recommend it.

Honestly, he became my favorite writer after The Amulet of Samarkand. The style of narration is utterly delightful since he gives each character their own story with their own definitive voice. Best read for anyone wanting addictive adventure. The only other novel series as good, is the Grey Wolf Throne Series.
