Format: Paperback
Be prepared for one of the most exciting page-turning reads you'll ever encounter. This book will grip you from the first page and not let you go until the end. It's the longest of the four Sally Lockhart books, but you won't notice the length as the plot just keeps going and thickening all the time.

As if that wasn't enough, in between the excitement there's also a wealth of incidental detail about social conditions in Victorian England, and especially about the rights (or lack thereof) of women.

Please note: the four Lockhart books should be read in order. This book gives away a number of significant plot developments in the first two (Ruby in the Smoke and Shadow in the North), so you should read those first. They're also great, and you won't truly appreciate this one without having read those first.

You always know it's a good book when you just can't put it down! This carries on the excellence of the earlier books in the series, The Ruby in the Smoke and The Shadow in the North.

Pullman is such a compelling story-teller, but what really sets him apart for me is his ability to paint your mind into the scene with an almost ruthless efficiency. You can find yourself wondering how you have the whole scene elaborately captured in your mind's eye and at the same time marvel at how few, but oh so well selected, words it has taken him to weave his magic.

As with the other books the story goes along moving from place to place at a canter, but despite all the changes between different sub plots / scenes / locations you never get lost with Pullman.

I heartily recommend this entire series!

By John Hopper TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 20 Sept. 2013
Format: Paperback
The third in the Sally Lockhart quartet, longer than its predecessors, but another good adventure where Sally has to battle against forces trying to rewrite her past history for their own ends. In the process she becomes familiar with poverty, exploitation and indifference in the East End and becomes determined to make a difference fighting against them, another string to her bow. The central villain and some of his associates are chillingly well realised. I like Sally and her friends and will probably feel sorry when I read the final novel in the series.

I had read the first two books in the series and thought that neither the third or fourth one could live up to the Shadow in the North. I was very wrong. As soon as I read the first chapter, I was captivated by Phillip Pullman's amazing writing. If you haven't read the Sally Lockhart Quartet, I suggest you do because I garuntee that it will be one of the best series you ever read.
