¶ A young adult fantasy trilogy. Bartimaeus, is a five-thousand-year-old djinni, & the story follows the career of a teenage magician Nathaniel (later known as John Mandrake), and his rise to power in an alternate world 19th Century London - one in which magic is real, and England is a magical oligarchy. Very steampunkish and very fun stuff!
