“The golem’s eye” takes place 2 years after the end of book one, and a lot has changed. Due to the events that occurred in book one, our protagonist Nathaniel has gone from an unnoticed apprentice to a respected employee of the government. He is given the role to hunt down the resistance. This has led to a new found arrogance in this character, but in my opinion, he does not seem as useless anymore. The second protagonist, the powerful demon Bartimaeus is as sarcastic and cynical as ever.
The first novel was written in alternating perspectives of Nathaniel and Bartimaeus. But a new perspective is added into this novel, that of the girl Kitty, a young member of the resistance.
In this story Nathaniel re-summons Bartimaeus to help him track down a mysterious monster, while kitty along with other members of the resistance wreak havoc.
Book two is just as good as book one, I would recommend it to readers 13 and above, I give it a 4.5/5
