Publisher's Summary

The thrilling second book in Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials trilogy, read by the author and a full cast.

In this stunning sequel to Northern Lights, the intrepid Lyra Silvertongue and her daemon, Pantalaimon, find themselves in a shimmering, haunted other world – Cittagazze where soul-eating Spectres stalk the streets and wingbeats of distant angels sound against the sky.

Here she meets twelve-year-old Will Parry, a fugitive from a third universe. Will has found a small window between Cittagazze and Oxford that brings him into this strange new realm.

Will's father, an explorer, disappeared years ago, but recently some odd characters have started asking questions about him, and now, having accidentally killed one of them, Will is wanted by the police.

Armed with the subtle knife, a tool that cuts any material (including that which separates universes) and Lyra's alethiometer, the children set out to find John Parry, with adults of various stripes in desperate pursuit.

    "Disturbing"

    I mostly get audiobooks for my 14yo son who is terminally ill and cant read for himself for long. He has hugely enjoyed Philip Pullman's books but, as he's a Christian, he found this one disturbing. 'Shadow in the North' was gripping enough, although he was noticing the overtones of Pullman's motive for writing even there. This second book was too much. At first it wasnt too bad but with all the ghosts and witches serving devils, etc... Eventually he found himself losing sleep at night and that was all he could think of. He says, ironically Pullman seems to believe in God because he's trying to destroy him! According to reviews, Pullman does not believe in God or an afterlife. If you do, and you're facing it square on, this book is unhelpful. I write this feeling like we've been slightly conned and that Pullman's a bit of a bully. Come on Mr P, stick to the day job and write us a good story without all the bitter undercurrent.
