About Bartimaeus

My most popular series of books is the Bartimaeus Sequence, featuring the grumpy, sarcastic and resourceful fourth-level djinni, Bartimaeus. He currently features in four best-selling novels and one graphic novel. Since the first book, The Amulet of Samarkand, was published in 2003, the series has sold more than 6 million copies in 36 languages worldwide.

The Amulet of Samarkand, The Golem's Eye
and Ptolemy's Gate are set mainly in an alternative present-day London. They follow Bart's relationships with his young master, Nathaniel, and with Kitty, a fiery member of the Resistance against the magicians.

The Ring of Solomon is a prequel, set 3,000 years ago in ancient Jerusalem. Bartimaeus is enslaved to a magician working for the great King Solomon, but things get even worse for him when he meets Asmira, a young female assassin.

The Bartimaeus books have won awards in the USA, UK, Germany, France and Austria.
