"A must-purchase for all fantasy collections"
School Library Journal (starred review)
"It has been an anxious wait for fans of the Amulet of Samarkand to see if Jonathan Stroud could pull off another tour de force. But readers can rest easy: this sequel is no pale imitation of its predecessor. The Golem's Eye is another sophisticated, sardonic satire. Most of the morally ambiguous characters from the previous book are back, involved in an irresistible plot, packed with magic, mayhem, wit and wisdom. It is fast paced, frightening and funny, and you don't want it to end."
Lindsey Fraser, The Bookseller
"as hugely enjoyable as before… The alternating perspectives between the three central characters add depth, detail and humour to the action-packed thrills"
Amanda Craig, The Times
"The sharp-witted shape-shifting djinni returns in Stroud's second volume of the Bartimaeus trilogy, this time dealing with a mysterious attacker that is terrorizing London… Fans of book one will enjoy revisiting this delectably uneasy bond between boy and djinni. Bartimaeus's pointed humor makes for a story worth savoring."
Publishers Weekly (Starred review)
"Jonathan Stroud manages to keep the pace and humour of the first part of the Trilogy in the sequel – which is even better."
