The Bartimaeus Trilogy is a fantasy series by Jonathan Stroud.
This trilogy is formed by:
1.The amulet of Smarkanda
2.The golem´s Eye
The three novels are set in London in an alternate history to our own, though many countries, cities, events, and people are real:Prague, the Roman Empire, the American Revolution, Solomon,William Ewart Gladstone, Benjamin Disraeli, etc.. The books suppose that magic, magicians, and demons have been active throughout history, altering it. In particular these changes are reflected in the contrast between modern aspects (such as electricity and cars) and older ones (colonial-era weapons). The current time is never directly stated.
Among the books of fantasyI have read, these are the best ones. They are really amazing and interesting. I have enjoyed very much reading them.
