Reviews

  • "A dazzling sequel to the much praised Northern Lights. Angels, witches and magic sit comfortably beside physics, religion and philosophy as the story moves towards an end that leaves the reader breathless for the final volume."

    Guardian
  • "The Subtle Knife is the second volume of a trilogy that promises to live alongside the works of Tolkien and C. S. Lewis as an icon of imaginative writing for children. It's a claim made for many books but it is to be taken seriously in Philip Pullman's case, because of the depth of his vision."

    The Times
  • "This extraordinary, multi-layered masterpiece will harness the imaginations of children and adults now and in future generations."
