The Shadow of the North has a lot going on, including runaway magicians, false mediums, and steampunk . 12/28/15: The Shadow in the North is a much stronger book than The Ruby in the Smoke. It is tighter, more intricately plotted, and its characters are more human.

The Shadow of the North has a lot going on, including runaway magicians, false mediums, and steampunk weapons of mass destruction. But the true heart of this story does not lie in its intricate and sometimes improbable plot. Will I ever forgive that one secondary character? I wonder. 12/25/08: I first read The Shadow in the North in France, when I was ten. The Shadow in the North was the first book I read with a sex scene.

I'd read these novels in print when they came out, and they have just made excellent holiday reading. They're deliberately stylized to conform to Victorian "pot-boilers" and the drama is very much PG rated by today's standards. The characters are brilliantly written and engaging and the onboard dictionary on the kindle makes it possible to easily identify the meaning of the archaic terms sometimes employed. You can, once in a while, see hints of the writer's subsequent interests slipping through - the anti-clericalism and the desire to create really heroic female characters. Really good fun.

Fans of steampunk, Victoriana and wonderful character development, writing and plot are in for a treat with the Sally Lockhart Mysteries, especially The Shadow in the North and The Tiger in the Well, which are miles beyond the first book in the trilogy, The Ruby in the Smoke.

Sally Lockhart is an orphan, now grown and entrenched in both her own business and her own circle of friends who function as family. Sally is a partner in her friend's photography business and runs her own business in financial consultant and it is from that business that the mystery arises. Sally is visited by one of her clients, a retired teacher who lost the money Sally advised her to invest in shipping. Sally is appalled and sets out to find out why the company and the ship were sunk. The path leads her through the plight of women in Victorian society, the question of freedom and social control and human evil. There is a lot here, as in all of Pullman's books. Philip Pullman doesn't write young adult pulp (not that there is anything wrong with that), he writes fiction with profound questions about morality and character that are more suited to older teens and adults. I think younger YA readers in the tween bracket might bog down in Pullman's world, as vividly drawn and exciting as it is. Parents might want to read along with middle and older teens, not because there is anything wrong in Pullman's work, but because there is so much that is right that could raise discussions of how to cope with individual weakness in the self and in others and what happens when human weaknesses take on their inevitable societal aspects. As I said, there is a lot here.

What is also here is a fast moving mystery, set in an ever so slightly altered Victorian London with steampunk touches that are sure to please. Pullman is a master of his craft and the writing, character and plot are all top notch. Other reviewers have criticized Sally as anachronistic, but the feminist movement and a few individual women entering the professions was well advanced by the 1870s. Yes, these were exceptional women, but Sally is intended to be a portrait of just such an exceptional woman. Highly recommended as are all of Pullman's works to fans of mysteries, Victoriana, steampunk and high end Young Adult fiction.

Phillip Pullman introduced us to a completely new genre with the "His Dark Materials" stories about Lyra Bell'acqua, the Golden Compass and the Armoured Bears. These are children's stories which are so beautifully written that adults find them irresistable, too. And just as Harry Potter's character has grown and matured to face stronger foes than bullies from the Sixth Form, Pullman's protagonists have evolved to lure us into new worlds of adventure, intrigue and deadly danger. Sally Lockhart has grown from an ingenuous sixteen-year-old trying to understand the circumstances of her father's untimely death, to an independent and resourceful young woman in the Victorian era. Following on from "The Ruby in the Smoke", we find Sally running her own financial management service while still forming an essential part of the Garland and Lockhart Detective Agency and the Garland's Photographic Studio. Sally's livelihood, her friends and ultimately her very life are threatened by a ruthless, manipulative and corrupt businessman of sinister eastern-European backgound. Bellmann's plot to manufacture and sell death-dealing weapons to tyrranical despots brings him into conflict with the Lockhart businesses, their ethics and their personnel, and sets up a confrontation which could cost Sally everything she values...
I commend this book to even the most modern of young people, and to their parents, too. The writing style is balanced so cleverly, the language is set in the elegance of the Victorian era but the conflict translates readily to present times. The opponents of our personal liberty are as evident today as a hundred or a thousand years ago, and the final struggle seems to arise from within ourselves, as this wonderful story tells. Great reading, and well read by Anton Lesser!

Like all of Phillip Pullman's books "The Shadow in the North" takes you back in time and into the lives of the vivid, and interestingly compelling characters that he creates. Although it is another time, Pullman draws you in and you feel as if you were there and can totally realte the circumstances. The Sally Lockhart mysteries are wonderful books for all ages; quite similar in it's appeal to adults as in the works of J.K. Rawling.

Just like the DVD version, but with that little extra that keeps a person coming back to it! Recommend it to everyone young and old! A good book to read on a rainy day or snowy day! I'm still in the process of finishing it, and looking forward to each and every part. You feel like you are right there, and understand why the characters think the way they do. Love this book and can't wait to finish it!

I loved Philip Pullman's "His Dark Materials" trilogy so much, so I picked up his Sally Lockhart series to keep my glow going. They're really good; not quite as incredible as the HDM books, but very interesting, engaging and suspenseful. I loved the first book in the series. This one, book 2, was a lot more confusing than book 1. I think there may have been too many characters to keep straight; I kept confusing their names and agendas. That said, it still gripped me and held me in the story through the end.

Liked this book for it kept me reading at all hours of the night. Will try to read more Sally Lockhart Mysteries although some sound a little strange.
