Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Here is the highly anticipated second installment of Philip Pullman's epic fantasy trilogy, begun with the critically acclaimed The Golden Compass. Lyra and Will, her newfound friend, tumbleseparately into the strange tropical otherworld of Cittaagrave;gazze, the city of magpies, where adults are curiously absent and children run wild. Here their lives become inextricably entwined whenLyra's alethiometer gives her a simple command: find Will's father. Their search is plagued with obstacles--some familiar and some horribly new and unfathomable--but it eventually brings them closer to Will's father andto the Subtle Knife, a deadly, magical, ancient tool that cuts windows between worlds. Through it all, Will and Lyra find themselves hurtling toward the center of a fierce battle against a force so awesome that leagues ofmortals, witches, beasts, and spirits from every world are uniting in fear and anger against it. This breathtaking sequel will leave readers eager for the third and final volume of His Dark Materials.

Synopsis:

The sequel to The Golden Compass continues the fantasy adventures of its young heroine, Lyra, as she journeys through an astral portal to the dangerous and haunted world of Cittagazze. Reissue. Teacher's Guide available.

Synopsis:

As the boundaries between worlds begin to dissolve, Lyra and her daemon help Will Parry in his search for his father and for a powerful, magical knife.
