This review is from: The Shadow in the North (Sally Lockhart Quartet) (Paperback)
This is one of my alltime favourite books. Phillip Pullman is a genius.The sequel to The Ruby In The Smoke,this book is a thrilling tale full of deceit,fraud,murder, phychic anomalies... Not to mention love and friendship. The villain is, if anything, better than the first book in the series, with a more complex motive than just greed. I have read it four times now, and it still makes me laugh and cry the whole way through. You would have to be utterly heartless not to do the same. A thrilling read.
