Amazon Review

Any book by Philip Pullman, award-winning author of Northern Lights, The Subtle Knife and The Amber Spyglass, is guaranteed to be a corker and The Shadow in the North is no exception.

Set against the backdrop of a veiled and misty Victorian underworld, the story of Sally Lockhart-- female entrepreneur and expert financial advisor--and her allies Jim and Fred, begins to unfold as news of the disappearance of the steamship Ingrid Linde reaches the ears of the intrepid trio.

As they investigate the loss, they are unwittingly drawn into a dark and sinister plot fuelled by the business dealings of the cruel and heartless Bellman. As their investigations continue, strange and supernatural forces intercede, leading them deeper into the menacing back streets of Victorian London and taking them on a journey into the very heart of true evil.

Few authors spin such a cracking yarn as Pullman and The Shadow of the North, a complex story with seemingly endless and breathless twists, turns and cliffhangers, is one of his best. An intelligent, explosive, superbly written yarn that will mesmerise older readers. (Ages 11 and over) --Susan Harrison --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.

By Glenn Cook HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 26 Sept. 2012
Format: Paperback
This is a fabulous read.
Pure and simple Philip Pullman writes wonderful books with wonderful plots.
This is a follow up to The Ruby in the Smoke and I really would encourage you to read that splendid book first to get the maximum enjoyment out of this wonderful tale.
True this is a sequel but it is a fabulous story in its own right.

I am amazed that this book is inteneded for children- I as an adult really enjoyed reading this fabulous tale of mystery, corruption murder greed Victorian Violence and Sally Lockheart.

Pullman really knows his stuff the plot and story lines are reviewed well by other reviwers so I will focus on the background to the books.
It is set in Victorian London and that my friends means the underbelly and seedy side of London Life- Jim and Fred now run a detective Agency and my they really know how to get tooled up when violence threatens.
Knuckledusters and 'night sticks are used' and when the opponents use a knife they have no hesitation in smashing the assailents face in with a cosh and kicking him in the nadgers when he is down- so he won;t be getting up in a hurry nor reproducing either.
Jim and Fred never escape unharmed either, broken teeth, black eyes and broken bones aboud.
Sally plays her part well and there are wonderful side characters who are never what they seem and villens abound like hornets when the hive is threatened.

Wonderful stuff and not just for kids.
Recommended 100 per cent.

After reading Pullman's "His Dark Materials" trilogy I decided this summer to read Pullman's four books about Sally Lockhart set in Victorian England and I'm glad I did. The books are an excellent read, and Pullman has enough changes in each book to stop them becoming repetitive.
This is the second book of the four, in which Sally, Jim and the rest of the group encounter big business and the arms trade, and battle to stop a sinister weapon being built in northern England. There are real surprises and shocks in this gripping story.

Format: Paperback
This is the second in Pullman's Sally Lockhart trilogy, the sequel to The Ruby in the Smoke. I made the mistake of reading this one first; each of the books contains big spoilers for the previous one, so I strongly recommend they are read in order.

This is another absolute masterpiece from Pullman, but rather darker than its predecessor. The Ruby in the Smoke talked about greed, desire and stupidity; The Shadow in the North addresses the question of evil face on.

Sally has begun to make a name for herself in business, an incredible achievement for a Victorian woman, and to drag Frederick Garland's photography company back from chaos and near-bankruptcy. A seemingly innocent enquiry by a client about a sunken ship and an apparently genuine clairvoyant leads Sally, Fred and Jim off on another trail of deceit and trechery, leading across Europe, and into the very heart of the British government.

If The Ruby in the Smoke was Pullman's homage to Conan Doyle, this one has a lot more of the Wilkie Collins about it. The plot is just beautiful: neatly complex and tight, twisting and with a sting in its tail that has reduced me to tears both times I've read it. There is a sense of justice and moral certitude in his writing that is deeply satisfying. If there is really a better storyteller than Pullman in England right now, I don't know about them.

Format: Paperback
Another astounding book by Philip Pullman. His way of capturing his audience is extraordinary. The book, as his others, is quite complicated - but without knowing it, you follow everything. This book carries on from the trilogy starting with,'The Ruby in the Smoke' It stars a young defiant lady called Sally Lockhart who, in the last book, joined up with Frederick Garland, a good natured photographer. He stars in this book along with a number of familiar characters from the first book.In their spare time, they are detectives - this sounds very tacky and unoriginal but in this story it is extremely realistic. The story is set in London in the late 1800s. It is excellent and leaves you in tears at places. I highly reccomend it to any children aged between 12-15.
