Part two of His Dark Materials takes up where The Golden Compass left off, offering up fascinating cross-world quests and some creative ideas and plot elements that do much to make up for the rather basic characterization of all but the two main protagonists. The only real frustration is that the cliffhanger ending is even less satisfying than the conclusion of the first book.
—Charles de Lint

Times Literary Supplement - Sally Visick

The Subtle Knifeis a fantasy adventure on the grand scale.
