Product description

A BEGUILING NEW EPISODE FROM THE UNIVERSE OF HIS DARK MATERIALS Lyra's Oxford opens two years after the conclusion of Philip Pullman's The Amber Spyglass in the comfort and familiarity of Jordan College, where Lyra and her daemon, Pantalaimon, sit on the sun-drenched roof looking out over all of Oxford. But their peace is shattered when a strange bird - a witch's daemon, on it's own - tumbles out of the sky, in search of a healing elixer to cure his witch of a strange new disease. Lyra and Pan decided to help - witches are friends, of course - but the closer their winding walk leads them towards the infamous Oxford alchemist, the stronger Lyra's sense that something is amiss.

Review quote

"It is one of those grand narrative strokes that Pullman can sometimes pull off with such casual looking ease and faith. This book is that gift in miniature" -- John Ezard Guardian "Grippingly funny and infused with the vitality of a master storyteller" -- Amanda Craig The Times "Beautifully written ... a welcome chance to revisit Lyra that many young readers will savour" School Librarian "Exquisitely produced ... Truly a collector's piece, this is a must" The Good Book Guide "This is a book for all Pullman readers and is sufficiently intriguing to entice new readers into Lyra's world" Child Education
