For those of you who aren't aware of the amazingly amazing Bartimaeus trilogy, check it out here; I highly recommend it. It's snarky, fun, exciting, and one of them (I won't give away which, don't worry) made it to the highly exclusive list, The Four Books That Have Made Me Cry.
So, a follow-up prequel book? Of course I can't wait! I love Stroud's witty, sarcastic djinn! And is it just me, or is that cover pretty much awesome?
