Product description

In the astonishing finale to the His Dark Materials trilogy, Lyra and Will are in unspeakable danger. With help from Iorek Byrnison the armored bear and two tiny Gallivespian spies, they must journey to a dank and gray-lit world where no living soul has ever gone. All the while, Dr. Mary Malone builds a magnificent Amber Spyglass. An assassin hunts her down, and Lord Asriel, with a troop of shining angels, fights his mighty rebellion, in a battle of strange allies—and shocking sacrifice. As war rages and Dust drains from the sky, the fate of the living—and the dead—finally comes to depend on two children and the simple truth of one simple story.

Review quote

"Pullman has created the last great fantasy masterpiece of the twentieth century."--"The Cincinnati Enquirer" "Absorbing. . . . Like "Harry Potter" creator J. K. Rowling, [Pullman] invents a world filled with strange divinations and wordplays."--"Newsweek ""A literary masterpiece . . . [that] caps the most magnificent fantasy series since "The Lord of the Rings" and puts Harry Potter to shame. . . . A page-turning story that builds to a powerful finish."--"Oregonian" "Impossible to put down, so firmly and relentlessly does Pullman draw you into his tale. . . . [A] gripping saga pitting the magnetic young Lyra Belacqua and her friend Will Parry against the forces of both Heaven and Hell.""--Pittsburgh Post-Gazette "
