Read full description of the books El amuleto de Samarkanda:

Londres, 2003. La magia rige la política y los negocios. Por eso, cuanto más importante es un mago, más influencia y poder tiene. Desde pequeños, los futuros magos son separados de sus familias, pierden su nombre y un mago se encarga de su severísima educación; a los doce años, reciben el nombre oficial, según el cual serán reconocidos como magos y como hombres, así como su primer par de lentes, que les permite ver algo del mundo de los espíritus. El poder de los magos es ilimitado -en función de su saber- y la mayoría trabaja para el Gobierno. La corrupción está a la orden del día y la amistad es sólo una cuestión de estrategia. Cuantos más poderes tiene un mago, más capacidad tiene de convocar a los distintos espíritus y conseguir lo que quiere. Sin embargo, a los magos les ha salido un incómodo enemigo: la Resistencia, un grupo de personas normales y corrientes que, hartos de la corrupción, quieren que el poder vuelva a manos del pueblo....

Read information about the author

Ebook El amuleto de Samarkanda read Online! Jonathan Anthony Stroud is an author of fantasy books, mainly for children and youths.

Stroud grew up in St Albans where he enjoyed reading books, drawing pictures, and writing stories. Between the ages seven and nine he was often ill, so he spent most of his days in the hospital or in his bed at home. To escape boredom he would occupy himself with books and stories. After he completed his studies of English literature at the University of York, he worked in London as an editor for the Walker Books store. He worked with different types of books there and this soon led to the writing of his own books. During the 1990s, he started publishing his own works and quickly gained success.

In May 1999, Stroud published his first children's novel, Buried Fire, which was the first of a line of fantasy/mythology children's books.

Among his most prominent works are the bestselling Bartimaeus Trilogy. A special feature of these novels compared to others of their genre is that Stroud examines the stereotypes and ethics of the magician class and the enslaved demons. This is done by examining the perspective of the sarcastic and slightly egomaniacal djinni Bartimaeus. The books in this series are The Amulet of Samarkand, The Golem's Eye, and Ptolemy's Gate, his first books to be published in the United States.

Stroud lives in St Albans, Hertfordshire, with his two children, Isabelle and Arthur, and his wife Gina, an illustrator of children's books.
