5 out of 5 (1 rating)

Description

"Northern Lights" introduces Lyra, an orphan, who lives in a parallel universe in which science, theology and magic are entwined.

Lyra's search for a kidnapped friend uncovers a sinister plot involving stolen children and turns into a quest to understand a mysterious phenomenon called Dust.

In "The Subtle Knife" she is joined on her journey by Will, a boy who possesses a knife that can cut windows between worlds.

As Lyra learns the truth about her parents and her prophesied destiny, the two young people are caught up in a war against celestial powers that ranges across many worlds and leads to a thrilling conclusion in "The Amber Spyglass".

The epic story Pullman tells is not only a spellbinding adventure featuring armoured polar bears, magical devices, witches and daemons, it is also an audacious and profound re-imagining of Milton's "Paradise Lost".

An utterly entrancing blend of metaphysical speculation and bravura storytelling, "His Dark Materials" is a monumental and enduring achievement.

Compelling, heartbreaking and dealing with themes fundamental to our humanity. One of the greatest works of the imagination ever set in print.
