anon who asked about the trilogy here! it's funny that you answered when you did, b/c it was on the same day i (before seeing your reply) caved and bought/began reading the first book. i'm already more than halfway through it and thus far am immensely pleased.

i’m terribly sorry it took a million years to respond to this i hope u follow or… some.. thing… hhh.

anyways.

OH BOY, FRIEND!! YOU SHOULD TOTALLY READ THE BARTIMAEUS BOOKS!! if this summary sounds good to you at least!

it’s a series about MAGIC. much like harry potter, it’s set in a modern-ish England and one of the main characters is a young adopted boy (Nathaniel) who is learning magic. UNlike harry potter, magic in this universe is actually summoning demons to do your shit. 8) so one of the other main characters is a djinn that he has called to do his bidding, the titular Bartimaeus! the third main character is a girl (Kitty) who’s here to FIGHT THE FUCKIN SYSTEM.

this is because most magicians are actually p big assholes- turns out when you have super special powers you maybe abuse them?? esp when the power itself is already someone else’s power, really. So there’s all that running as the undercurrent (and sometimes over..current…) of this urban fantasy plot of WIZARD POLITICAL INTRIGUE and GUERRILLA VIOLENCE AGAINST ALL THAT NOISE and DISCOVERING THE HISTORY OF HOW THINGS GOT THIS WAY.

It’s v charmingly written, in a mix of both first and third person (different chunks of the book focus on different characters’ viewpoints, Bartimaeus is all 1st person, the other two are 3rd) with funny footnotes and stuff. The audiobooks are also really good! They’re read by Simon Jones and he does voices and everything


i like them everyone pls read them and cry at me a lot thx

just curious- why do you portray dirk with red hair?
