Editorial Reviews

Review

“More than fulfilling the promise of The Golden Compass, this second volume starts off at a heart-thumping pace and never slows down....The grandly exuberant storytelling is sure to enthrall.”—Publishers Weekly, Starred

“The intricacy of the plot is staggering. . . .There is no doubt that the work is stunningly ambitious, original, and fascinating.”—The Horn Book Magazine, Starred

“The character development as well as the relentless pace . . . make this a resoundingly successful sequel . . . it will leave readers desperate for the next installment.”—Booklist, Starred

“A literary rollercoaster ride you won’t want to miss.”—The Boston Globe

From the Inside Flap

Lyra finds herself in a shimmering, haunted underworld?Cittàgazze, where soul-eating Specters stalk the streets and wingbeats of distant angels sound against the sky. But she is not without allies: 12-year-old Will Parry, fleeing for his life after taking another?s, has also stumbled into this strange new realm.

On a perilous journey from world to world, Lyra and Will discover an object of devastating power. And with every step, they move closer to an even greater threat?and the shattering truth of their own destiny.
