This is a wonderful story about friendship, love and courage. The end makes it simply amazing. That's what i Love about  Jonathan Stroud's stories. They always have the perfect ending, mostly unexpected, but perfect.

I read both books that are out in the Bartimaues trilogy, and have been eyeing this one for a while. Stroud's dark humor and clever words lead you into the magical world of magicians. This book is awesome!
