Now fourteen, Nathaniel is ambitiously climbing the ranks of the magiciansí government. The Prime Minister himself has placed Nathaniel in charge of capturing the Resistance, a group of unruly commoners working to undermine the magiciansí empire. But after several failed attempts, Nathaniel is forced to admit he canít do it alone. With his career on the line, he reluctantly summons his only hope for successĖthe 5,000-year-old .
The duo is reunited just in time: the Resistance is growing more audacious than ever. And to make matters worse, a seemingly invulnerable clay golem is wreaking destruction throughout London, sending the entire city into pandemonium. With time running out, the young magician and his uncontrollable djinni must find the source of the golemís power, a task they quickly learn will involve much more than they ever anticipated.

Together, these three will have to go heah-to-head with the fearsome golem before the mysterious identity of its master is finally revealed.
