    One thought on “Das Banner des Roten Adlers

    1. Catherine

      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 realised throughout most of Tiger in the Well, heh)I loved how the plot kept you guessing right until the end. And there was hardly a dull moment. Even the ending didn't just sort of fizzle out. It be [...]

      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 spoilersInstead the plot is about Razkavia a made up Germanic state in middle Europe. Where members of the royal family are being bumped off. Our heroes Jim and Becky fall into this world of royal-intrigue, by way of Adelaide, the little [...]

      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 carismáticos, el cambio gradual y notorio en la protagonista, y una intérprete de 16 años con ganas de comerse el mundo. No fue tanto por las intrigas políticas que te adelantan en la sinopsis, sino por cóm [...]

      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.

    5. The Book Queen

      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.

    6. Mary-Jean Harris

      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 the main characters. He really needs his own series, actually :)Now, the story was different from the others in that there was a large element that wasn't historical. The story is based on a fictional c [...]

    7. Rebecca Matthies

      This was the second book I ever read in the Sally Lockhart series and I honestly really liked it apart from one thing, which make me hate the book more and more as I re-read it:Adelaide.Boy, isn't she just annoying?! Every chapter contains at least a paragraph of praise and I guess what's supposed to be a awe-inspiring descriptions of how Adelaide's beauty and 'charming-psychopath' personality mesmerizes everyone around her. Yes, Pullman we get it: everybody loves her bossy, unpleasant personali [...]

      needs a "re-read" shelf for books like this one. It was as fun the second time as the first. This is one of my favorite Pullman books, right up there with the Dark Materials trilogy, though not as intense. You don't need to know anything about the Sally Lockhart books to read this one because it's a complete side story.

    9. Devanshi Gupta

      Why are Philip Pullman's endings always so sadLoved the book, though not his best. It certainly raked up the emotions inside me.

    10. Molly Ringle

      I hadn't read anything else in the Sally Lockhart series, which likely affected the degree to which I knew what was going on, though Pullman is such a good storyteller that I went along with it contentedly anyway. And hey, I always like a made-up tiny country with royalty and stuff.

    11. Megan Baxter

      Despite how quickly I devoured the three first Sally Lockhart books, I took my time getting around the the fourth because, well, it's not about Sally. She only appears in the book very briefly. I shouldn't have waited so long. The Tin Princess is a fast-paced, engrossing Victorian pulp, told with the keen eye for imperial politics and business that Pullman has brought to all the books in this series. Although I didn't remember Adelaide very well from the first time I met her, I quickly grew very [...]

    12. Katie

      Maybe the weakest of Pullman's Victorian era novels, The Tin Princess borrows heavily (and intentionally) from late 19th century adventure novels and comes complete with a made up Slavic Kingdom, but despite its way to-good-to-be true conclusion I can't help but love it. I have a soft spot for Jim Taylor.But I cannot ignore the book's conclusion. Stop if you've heard this rant before. Pullman seems to think that sex leads to either death or separation. Sally and Fred hook-up and Fred immediately [...]

    13. Jules

      Somehow I'm even more sad than I was when I finished the final Harry Potter book. This series is so, so, so, so made of awesome. And I can't help but love it. And adore it.Never mind that I really don't get what Mr Pullman is trying to do at the end of The Tin Princess. Okay, I needed some time to get into this Razkavian stuff and get used to the fact that Sally wouldn't play a big part in this one. But after the first 100 pages I really loved it. When I came to the final 5 pages I thought: Well [...]

    14. Grace

      This is almost a standalone in the Lockheart series -- it's certainly the one that's easiest to pick up and reread quickly, and that's because it doesn't really dive into Sally Lockheart's life. This one's all about Jim Taylor.I love Jim unabashedly. He's cheeky and clever and quick, with a strong sense of right and wrong. It's great to see him in the centre of his own story, as I always wanted more of him in Sally's books. Now that he's grown up a bit and is finally the ringleader of his own in [...]

    15. Ellen

      This is a sort-of sequel to The Ruby in the Smoke et al and okay, it's kind of a cheesy sequel. But oh, the characters! Seeing Jim and Adelaide all grown up, and Sally as a matron, is fun without being corny; and Becky and the new minor characters are wonderful enough that you can mostly ignore the rags-to-riches-to-royalty story the book is ostensibly about.I think of it as really extremely good self-fanfiction. If you enjoyed the three books in the series proper, and can keep that description [...]

    16. Althea Ann

      "The Tin Princess" features characters from the other books in this series (Sally Lockhart), but is only a slightly-connected story. It's the somewhat-familiar story of an English girl, Adelaide, of no breeding but innate intelligence and wit, who marries the exotic prince of a small European country. Seeking a job, the young Becky Winter is hired to be Adelaide's tutor, and soon finds herself helping Adelaide negotiate a maze of dangerous politics and social situations, and he unexpectedly beco [...]

    17. Ellie Matthews

      All the Sally Lockhart books are great, starring a heroine who can shoot a pistol, solve a mystery, and is written by Phillip Pullman in a Victorian London full of opium addicts, smog and murders. Actually Sally isn't in this book very much as it is mainly the story of her friend Jim and the little urchin Adalaide from previous books, now married to the crown prince of a small European country.

    18. Chloe

      What a disappointing end to a quartet. This book starts off with such promise, and the plot and the writing style are brilliant (it's Philip Pullman, so of course they are), but there were a few things that marred my complete enjoyment of this story. Firstly, there is the relationship between the three main characters, Jim, Adelaide, and Becky: what would have worked best as an amiable trio a la Harry Potter is instead portrayed as a couple and the third wheel. Where I should have felt sympathet [...]

    19. Lucie B.

      Cínová princezna se ukázala bohužel jako kniha, která je spjata s určitým věkem a po letech člověka znovu už nenadchne (ve zkratce, je to prostě young adult, na které v dospělosti začnete vidět všechny nedostatky).Například, nikdo se nijak zvlášť nepozastavuje nad tím, že Adelaide se s princem seznámila v nevěstinci (kromě starého krále, kterého to do druhého dne přejde), bez problému a bez pomluv se stane královnou, která dojednává důležitou mezinárodní [...]

    20. Katie Bee

      A rollicking old-fashioned melodrama, which takes some of the characters from the earlier Sally Lockhart books (Jim Taylor and little Adelaide) and transfers them to a little made-up country in Central Europe. There they battle evil plots and international intrigue and poisonings and murder and true love, all in an attempt to save a kingdom. Lots of people die in this, including people the reader has come to care about (and a kitten). And in some ways the plot is quite predictable; I could have [...]

    21. Jocelyn

      All the books in this series are chock full of action, exciting adventure, mysterious plots, fascinating historical details and wonderful characters and Anton Lesser as the narrator is absolutely suburb. He can do any accent it seems; men and women, Cockney guttersnipes, Irish ruffians, a Scottish magician, a Hungarian politician, Eastern Europeans. I liked this book the best because the primary point of view is a new character named Becky and she is brave and kind and clever and she is the nati [...]

    22. Ellie

      I read all 4 books in the Sally Lockhart series, although I already knew the stories of the first two from the BBC TV series a few years back. In fact they were the best of the lot. Book 3, The Tiger in the Well, only features Sally, all other characters were conveniently "away" right when she needed help the most. She's being sued by a man she's never met, claiming his right to everything she owns as he's her husband. And he has the documents to prove it. Incredibly far fetched, and I guessed w [...]

    23. Judith

      This was not the best story as I must confess, I missed Sally being in it. The series has always included Sally but this time centers more around Jim and Adelaide who has reappeared 10 years after mysteriously disappearing in the first book. An interesting (but tragic) plot that doesn't take place in Victorian England. A bit of a hazy ending that rather ends up in the airr the last book in the series.

    24. Inger-Johanne Bauer

      Found this at the library and was first attracted by the antique-like cover art and the text on the back. I have not read any other books by this author. I quite enjoyed it, there was action but somehow it was not too unrealistic, in that the heroes did not ultimately win all that they set out to. Nevertheless, they came out of the adventure in an acceptable way. I may read other books in the same series.

    25. Cara

      Very good book but it isn't clear what happened to Karl if he was killed on his way to meet Count Otto or if he lived because at the end of the book it says: 'And the students of Richterbund, gathering silently ate the Café Florestan to wait for news of Karl and Gustav and the others who'd died.' And I really want to know what happened to him.

    26. Cat

      I did really like the dark undertones of the story, questioning whether there was really any meaning in the end if the story's events. Which ironically made me question whether the book in turn, was pointless. It started out so well but maybe i lost steam towards the end or too much was happening. Either way, I felt the ending just lost its impact on me or ended far too abruptly.

    27. Angelica

      3.5I wanted the plot to be more complex, and it took a moment to adjust to a new city and focus (I love learning about the history of Victorian London via Pullman and this book takes place in a made-up country). All that aside, it was poignant and intriguing as always.

    28. Kiki

      I just read all four of the Sally Lockhart mysteries through. Although I missed Sally in this one, I thought this was the most exciting of them all.
