What the Critics Say

"A rip-roaring adventure story filled with cutthroat villains, dastardly deeds, sleazy opium dens, filthy London slums, and a delightful heroine....Splendid descriptions, plot twists and turns, and understated humor engage readers in this tale of murder, mayhem, and mystery." (School Library Journal)

    "dissapointing."

    although i really loved pullman's 'the golden compass' series, this book failed to entice me. it seemed like the entire 'ruby in the smoke' book was based on the recurring theme that opium was/is bad. it was like he was trying to preach to his readers. i hated it.

    "Dont do it!"

    This book was boring, and pointless. I did not understand the great reviews-One credit wasted!
