The Golem's Eye by Jonathan Stroud

OK, this isn't a new book and I'm not actually reading it either, I'm listening to it on CD but it's great. Read by Simon Jones, The Golem's Eye, the 2nd book in the Bartimaeus Trilogy by Jonathan Stroud is so full of complicated plot lines and weird twists that it's excellent for listening. And, I must confess, that it was a librarian friend who suggested listening to these so I did and I'm glad!

All the teens I know who read fantasy have really liked his first book, The Amulet of Samarkand, which I also listened to on CD so I knew I wouldn't be disappointed!
