I've never read the Bartimaeus books. "Heroes of the Valley," however, received such glowing reviews from many sources, and has been sitting on the shelf, that I wanted to read it so that I can booktalk it to someone. I started to read it and couldn't tell if I liked it or not. But I was interested enough to keep going. Then it began to get good. Then it got REALLY good. Then it was scary and good and surprising. Once I hit a certain point in the story, I could barely tear myself away. The climax of the plot was heart-poundingly suspenseful. You should read this one - it is an original take on the "heroes and warriors" concept.
