The Shadow in the North (2007) short review


The sequel to The Ruby in the Smoke, it tells of a further adventure of Sally Lockhart. I don’t know why I liked this one better than Ruby, but I did. Both of these have a very modern sensibility about them, which in some ways is interesting (casting) and in some ways jarring (plot points/dialogue). I liked the costuming (early bustle) slightly better in this one, altho Sally doesn’t have that many changes.
