I would not recommend this book to anyone. I was a huge fan of Pullman; I worshipped the ground he walked on after reading his dark materials. But The ruby in the smoke was one of the most boring books I have ever had the displeasure of reading. Sally is quite possibly the most mundane heroine I have ever encountered in a novel, she's generic and boring. I am still unaware of the significance the ruby had at all, if it was just because everyone wanted it for money that's very lacklustre. Overall Pullman really disappointed me with this, I don't plan on reading any of the sequels.
