The assassins dropped into the palace grounds at midnight, four fleet shadows dark against the wall. The fall was high, the ground was hard; they made no more sound on impact than the pattering of rain. Three seconds they crouched there, low and motionless, sniffing at the air. (from the first line)

Annotation:
Captivating adventure, political intrigue, morality, and uncertain loyalties are the beating heart of the riveting final volume in the bestselling Bartimaeus Trilogy. If they are able to stay alive, Nathaniel, Bartimaeus, and Kitty could be on the verge of experiencing a revolutionary moment in the history of magic. Nathaniel, once a young, power-hungry magician, is now 17 and the mightily feared Information Minister, fighting to stay in the game and keep the commoners down as a failing war rages across the Atlantic. His smart-talking dinji, Bartimaeus, is in rapid decline due to massive overwork, while Kitty, who survived the golem attack, is secretly learning magic, with a dangerous plan that even seasoned magicians haven't attempted. Bartimaeus's fascinating history is told as the Empire crumbles, alliances shift, and the world of magic is forever transformed. This last book is preceded by THE AMULET OF SAMARKAND and THE GOLEM'S EYE. A 2006 Booklist Editor's Choice.

Praise

"The trilogy wraps up with excitement, adventure and an unexpected wallop of heart and soul...Stroud masterfully weaves together four characters and an unearthly realm of existence in an explosive culmination that reaches back to the first two volumes and infuses them with layers of psychological and moral complexity." 12/15/2005
