Here is the highly anticipated second installment of Philip Pullmans epic fantasy trilogy, begun with the critically acclaimedThe Golden Compass. Lyra and Will, her newfound friend, tumble separately into the strange tropical otherworld of Cittgazze, the city of magpies, where adults are curiously absent and children run wild. Here their lives become inextricably entwined when Lyras alethiometer gives her a simple command: find Wills father. Their search is plagued with obstacles--some familiar and some horribly new and unfathomable--but it eventually brings them closer to Wills father and to the Subtle Knife, a deadly, magical, ancient tool that cuts windows between worlds. Through it all, Will and Lyra find themselves hurtling toward the center of a fierce battle against a force so awesome that leagues of mortals, witches, beasts, and spirits from every world are uniting in fear and anger against it. This breathtaking sequel will leave readers eager for the third and final volume ofHis Dark Materials.
