This was one of the first books i had bought in a while, i thought it sounded good. I could not really get into it but i figured it was just because most books kinda have a slow start. This book was just awful, parts were okay and then it just got so boring and i could not even stand it. I would not recommend this book. Don't waste your money on it and buy a good book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Jonathan Stroud - what happened?
I absolutely loved the Bartimaeus trilogy, also by this author. At least I think it was also by this author because this book was terrible from start to finish. I tried and tried to get into the story with the characters at the beginning but it was broken up by retelling of "historic" folk lore stories and present day events. This had a disrupting effect on the progress of the story. I almost gave up, but I never give up on a book. Then at the end, I actually yelled out loud my disgust when the source of evil was revealed. How awful. Don't read it, even if you liked Bartimaeus. It was clever writing but the characters, story, beginning, middle and end were terrible. Sorry Mr. Stroud.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
