Publisher's Summary

An exciting new tale set in the world of Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials saga. Lyra's Oxford opens in the thrilling comfort and familiarity of Jordan College, where Lyra and her daemon Pantalaimon sit on the sun-drenched roof looking out over all of Oxford. But their peace is shattered when a strange bird (a witch's daemon, on its own) tumbles out of the sky. It is Ragi, daemon of Yelena Pazhets, and he seeks a healing elixir from an infamous Oxford alchemist (and rumored man slaughterer) to cure his witch of a strange new disease from the South. Lyra and Pan decide to help and guide him (witches are friends, of course) but the closer their winding walk leads them to the alchemist's house, the stronger Lyra's sense that she's walking into a deadly trap.

Listen to the rest of Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials series.

    "Shouldn't have wasted a credit"
    Any additional comments?

    I had no idea this was a short. suits me right for not reading the details. Stang that is costs so much for just 45 min of story.

    "Ten bucks for this?"

    Love the original series but seriously... ten dollars for a 45 minute book? Where was the happy ending?

    "Short, fun continuation of Lyra's story"

    This was an interesting short story taking place after the main His Dark Materials trilogy. Lyra goes off on a mini adventure when a witch's dæmon comes to Oxford. Short. Fun. But not terribly compelling.

    Story
    "I missed Lyra"

    I loved the His dark materials trilogy. I cry at the end every time, so it was nice to hear a new story from the same universe. I only wish that Mr. Pullman would do more stories in this universe.
