Three years have passed since the magician Nathaniel
In a world where magic is power, Nathaniel, a young magician from the Ministry of Internal Affairs, embarks on a quest with his unwitting companion Bartimaeus to discover the secret behind the commoners’ resistance to magic and the mysterious beast that is stalking the city of London. Source (modified): Wikipedia
A magician’s young apprentice, Nathaniel, summons the irascible 5,000-year-old djinn, Bartimaeus, to do his bidding. Nathaniel has an interesting assignment for Bartimaeus: he must steal the powerful Amulet of Samarkand from Simon Lovelace, a master magician of unrivalled ruthlessness and ambition. The only problem is Bartimaeus couldn’t care less for what his current master really wants, only that he has a job to complete (and survive) before he can return to “The Other Place” again… that and perhaps get even with the annoying little brat who summoned him if he gets the chance.

A few months have passed since Charlotte Johnson stumbled upon the existence of magic. A few months since she forced her way into a hidden society of magic-users and dragon-studiers. A few months since she helped Professor Mediochre Q Seth bring down an international smuggling ring. And since Mediochre Q Seth fled from her life entirely, taking with him her last reliable link to the new world of adventure she had uncovered. Now, for good or ill, a strange body and a familiar face in Charlotte’s own neighbourhood grant her a way right back into the middle of everything she thought she’d lost – and this time, she’s not letting go.
Charlotte Johnson has never been optimistic enough to believe that there could be far more to the world she lives in than meets the eye. But when the enigmatic dracologist Doctor Mediochre Quirinius Seth unintentionally explodes into her life, she finds that whether she believes it or not, dragons and magic are real and dangerous. Unwilling to let such a revelation go, Charlotte soon forces herself into the middle of a battle of other people’s wits where nothing is as simple as meets the eye – neither her newfound enemies, nor her newfound allies, and certainly not Mediochre Q Seth himself…
