O Barty, I love love love this book! I like the character of Asmira, but she is nowhere near as wonderfully flawed as Nathaniel was, nor did I want to root for her as strongly as I rooted for Kitty.

At first, Khaba and his subordinate closely supervise the stages of construction but after a while they stop showing up at the building site and the attitudes of the djinn grow lax. However, a spiteful Balkis disowns her loyal guard from her service.
Lui poteva fare molto meglio. Meanwhile Bartimaeus is just one among many of the spirits that has been bound by the circle of magicians that serve Soloman, and he delights in causing as much trouble as he can. But I already know his story, his magical predicament.

I was pretty dubious about it but no more! On the strength of this book, I wonder if Stroud has anything more to say about this world. His first-person chapters alternate with third-person chapters that focus on other actors, particularly a young and deadly Sheban named Asmira who is tasked with assassinating the powerful Solomon in order to save her homeland.
Review: The Ring of Solomon — @lizb A Chair, A Fireplace & A Tea Cozy
By the time you’re finished with it, if you haven’t already read the first three, you’ll be running full-tilt to get your hands on them. Post was not sent – check your email addresses! Bartimaeus devours the old man and by the magician’s death is released and returns to the Other Place. It’s running on rails. But I found her stiff and boring. Sebagai orang yang setia kepada Ratu, Asmira berangkat dari negerinya menuju Yerusalem ke kediaman Raja Solomon dengan tekad yang kuat, ia akan membunuh Raja itu bagaimanapun caranya.
This prequel leaves me a tad conflicted though. Dan jelas bukan Barty donk namanya kalau selalu nurut sama Masternya, si Barty ketahuan menggunakan sihir tepat saat Solomon lagi melakukan sidak di lokasi pembangunan.
