PTOLEMY'S GATE by Jonathan Stroud, Read by Simon Jones
In this imaginative fantasy, an alternative London is divided between ruling magicians and oppressed commoners. 11-year-old Nathaniel, an apprentice magician, calls upon the 5000-year-old djinni Bartimaeus for assistance. Simon Jones is outstanding--and reads all three titles in this Bartimaeus Trilogy, listeners may also want to try THE AMULET OF SAMARKAND, followed by THE GOLEM'S EYE.
