Nella Londra vittoriana, l'amico e compagno di avventure di Sally Lockhart Jim Taylor ha trovato finalmente Adelaide, la ragazzina che la tremenda Miss Holland trattava come sua schiava nel "Rubino di fumo". Ora sta per diventare la principessa di un Paese lontano, la Razkavia. Una principessa in pericolo, scopre Jim: il futuro marito di Adelaide lo sa e vuole proteggerla, e assume Jim come guardia del corpo. Pullman ha scritto al tempo stesso un romanzo per ragazzi, un romanzo femminile, un mystery, un romanzo storico.

For my full review, visit me at: https://mrsbrownsbooks.wordpress.com/... I have finally reached the end of this series. Pacing myself by reading one book a month, I am glad to have kept on top of this set of books. Whilst they have not totally led on from one another, I have enjoyed keeping the stor Leggi tutto
Possibly my favourite of all the Sally Lockhart books, which is funny since she personally is barely in this one, lol. I really loved the whole Razkavia set-up, having most of it through young Becky's eyes, and having Jim play such a huge role in it this time round (I think I missed Jim more than I
For me The Tin Princess was not as successful as the other books in the Sally Lockhart quartet, probably because it is neither about Sally Lockhart or Victorian London, both of which are the thing that interested me about this YA series in the first place. Some spoilers... Instead the plot is about R Leggi tutto
Tin trains, tin ships going down the whirlpool - you know what I am, Becky? I'm a tin princess. Like chess: I come all the way across the board and turned into a queen. Still only tin, though... Want a game of chess? Un libro muy dulce que me cautivó con su ambiente del 1800, sus personajes caris
I read the four books in a binge read. I loved them. I loved the strong independent and unusual female characters. They are not of their time but negotiate patriarchy successfully in their own right. The men in their lives are their equals and retain their manly deeds without undermining the women.
Lost count of how many times I've read this, but I haven't added it to GR before. I absolutely love this book. It's so vivid, and tragic, and the two girls at the centre are wonderful. This is an absolute comfort read for me.
As usual, Philip Pullman has written another fabulous story! It was very exciting and I just loved the characters, especially Jim and Adelaide. It was great how we returned to Adelaide, since we've had such a long time to wonder what on earth happened to her. And it was so fun that Jim was one of th Leggi tutto
I haven't read the Tiger in the Well, so I have some mild spoilers for it, but this is brilliant! I absolutely love this style of Ruritanian fantasy/Gothic crime novel thing and I think this might be my favourite out of the three I've read.
It were my list favourite in the series. Sally was never in it. And I missed her and her set to solve cases. But I like the history part of the princess family and how much they have happened in real. It was too read a mystery thriller series with a young female detective instead. I feel sorry for P Leggi tutto
