"The alternating perspective between the three central characters adds depth, detail and humour to the action-packed thrills" * The Times * "A vast plum pudding of a novel that improves with each mouthful" * Independent * "Fresh, downbeat, witty and wise, this novel is a worthy sequel to The Amulet of Samarkand" * TES * "Readers can rest easy: this sequel is no pale imitation of its predecessor. The Golem's Eye is another sophisticated, sardonic satire . . . Fast paced, frightening and funny, and you don't want it to end" * The Bookseller *
