Synopses & Reviews
Lyra is no ordinary child. Plucky, wild, feisty and fey, she leads a wild and carefree life trampling the roofs of Jordan College, Oxford, and fighting with the Gyptian children on the canal. But now children are mysteriously disappearing. A reign of terror is coming. And when Lyraâ€™s friend Roger disappears, she sets off on a mission to save him.
Itâ€™s a journey into a frozen north of ice and snow, where witch-queens ride the skies, armoured bears roam the snowâ€¦ and scientists are conducting experiments of unspeakable terror. Does one girl have the courage and cunning to stop them?
Now a hit film, this is the classic story of Lyraâ€™s incredible journey to the frozen north â€“ and the very edge of her world.
