The three novels are: The Amulet of Samarkand, The Golems Eye, Ptolemys Gate. The title character, Bartimaeus, is a five-thousand year old djinni, a spirit of approximately mid-level power. There are five basic levels of spirits most commonly summoned, in order of increasing power they are: imps, foliots, djinni, afrits and marids. There also exists a variety of subclasses in each level. Above these levels exist even more powerful entities, who are rarely summoned. Two of these entities are Ramuthra and Nouda. Many creatures weaker than imps also exist such as mites. The story is told through the viewpoint of three characters, the magician Nathaniel (or John Mandrake), the djinni Bartimaeus, and the commoner Kitty Jones. There is also one short chapter featuring the viewpoint of a foliot called Simpkin.
