Heart wrenching, thrilling and darkly mysterious!

With the aid of fantastically tactile narration, Pullman captivates us with a dark and intense, yet at times upliftingly jovial, tale of mystery and grimey suspense set against a cruel and industrial Dickensian backdrop, where danger lurks behind every alley way corner.

Another excellent Philip Pullman series!

Any additional comments?

Although historical novels are not usually my forte, this series is lively, interesting, full of well-developed and likable characters and, of course, well written. It's promoted as a "young adults" series but it really isn't. Not for the younger kids for sure as the stories are quite gritty and do not always end well. Philip Pullman has a knack for original writing. Love him!
