I’ve come to find the most dangerous men on your planet. And here they are. You don’t mind if I borrow them for a while do you?

Book Review: The Tiger in the Well: A Sally Lockhart Mystery

Book Title: The Tiger in the Well: A Sally Lockhart Mystery
Author: Phillip Pullman

Tyger! Tyger! burning bright
In the forests of the night,
What immortal hand or eye
Dare frame thy fearful symmetry?

The Tyger by William Blake

Final Verdict: A good continuation of the series. But be prepared for a pretty depressing book, until the last few chapters!

This was what love ought to be like: playful and passionate and teasing, and dangerous, too, with sharp intelligence in it.The Shadow in the North by Phillip Pullman

Final Verdict: Go beg, borrow, or steal it, right now! A wonderfully complex mystery for YA readers, which is a rare gem in the sea of other mediocre stories.

Book Review: The Ruby in the Smoke: A Sally Lockhart Mystery

Book Title: The Ruby in the Smoke: A Sally Lockhart Mystery
Author: Phillip Pullman

She was a person of sixteen or so—alone, and uncommonly pretty. She was slender and pale, and dressed in mourning, with a black bonnet under which she tucked back a straying twist of blond hair that the wind had teased loose. She had unusually dark brown eyes for one so fair. Her name was Sally Lockhart; and within fifteen minutes, she was going to kill a man.The Ruby in the Smoke by
Phillip Pullman

Final Verdict: Full speed ahead. A good mystery, at a decent pace, with good characters, and a strong female lead. So get your headphones and jump in.
