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.

    Comments about His Dark Materials Trilogy:

    After the sad news that there wasn't going to be a follow up to the movie 'Golden Compass' at this time I got curious and bought this book (the trilogy).
    I loved every minute of it and as always the book is better than the movie. Still I would love to see a studio take this on (it will be a challenging one) and make a fantastic, phantastical movie to satisfy the viewer!

    Comments about His Dark Materials Trilogy:

    I read everyday and would get images when describing "cutting holes into the next level". Certainly streched the imaginations. Looking forward for someone to turn the rest of the book into a movie. my frienjust read the first page and she wanted one as well. So i brought it for her.
