The Subtle Knife: His Dark Materials

by Philip Pullman

******* Includes a preview of THE BOOK OF DUST, the long-awaited new novel from Philip Pullman set in the world of His Dark Materials, and hailed by the New York Times as "a stunning achievement."***** The spellbinding sequel to The Golden Compass, the modern fantasy classic that Entertainment Weekly named an "All-Time Greatest Novel" and Newsweek hailed as a "Top 100 Book of All Time," continues the epic adventure, catapulting readers between worlds, and toward a devastating discovery.** Lost in a new world, Lyra finds Will—a boy on the run, a murderer—a worthy and welcome ally. For this is a world where soul-eating Specters stalk the streets and witches share the skies with troops of angels. Each is searching—Lyra for the meaning of Dark Matter, Will for his missing father—but what they find instead is a deadly secret, a knife of untold power. And neither Lyra nor Will suspects how tightly their lives, their loves, their destinies are bound together...until they are split apart.

A #1 New York Times Bestseller Published in 40 Countries

“Just as quick-moving and unputdownable as The Golden Compass. . . . The mysteries deepen and the wonders grow even more extravagant.” —The Washington Post “Pullman’s imagination soars . . . A literary rollercoaster ride you won’t want to miss.”—The Boston Globe “The story gallops with ferocious momentum . . . Devilishly inventive.” —The New York Times Book Review

    I finished this book and now I have to go and get the next book and I can't wait. There was some sadness in the last chapter and I sure was not expecting it even though I probably should have been prepared for something like this. The characters are so believable and some of them you get so angry at. The main characters will be a part of me until the series is finished. Usually after I finish a novel the story replays over and over until I start a new book.

    Unexpected twists. Did not see that ending coming, though it's still a good book.

    I don't see the reason to have regular earth mixed on this story. it's a bridge chapter.
