Djinn and Men Together


Ptolemy’s Gate, by Jonathan Stroud – The last volume in the Bartimaeus Trilogy is a fitting end to the whole thing, with the various loose ends brought to a head. We finally have Nathaniel (otherwise known as John Mandrake) and Kitty Jones working together for the common good. We also see what happens when a djinni is summoned inside of a human body, and pay a visit to the Other Place that the djinn call home. Faquarl is back, as are Gladstone’s Staff and the Amulet of Samarkand. And we learn the story of Ptolemy, the boy whose form Bartimaeus often takes. Overall, I found it a satisfying ending to the trilogy.
