The Short Story within the book titled "Lyra and the Birds" takes place two years after the conclusion of the events in "The Amber Spyglass" and details the efforts of a now older Lyra to help a lost witch's daemon find its way back to its host. What the story lacks in length it makes up for in the same action oriented, informative storytelling which made the original trilogy so appealing. With a map of Lyra's alternate Oxford, and other clues pointing to the possible future of the characters the author Philip Pullman has never ceased to amaze me with his allegiance to the series and to his many fans.
The only problem I encountered is that the Kindle version does not display the map in a manner which much detail can be composed of in a knowledgeable manner. Unless you have a Kindle DX or don't mind a squished indistinguishable map I would get this wonderful read as a printed book.
I am planning to start reading The Book of Dust soon!
Pros: Nice presentation, another chance to spend time with Lyra and Pan
Cons: Too short, not very impactful or interesting beyond confirming that Lyra is flourishing after the events of the previous books.
