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.

    "Excellent story & performance"

    Just a brilliant and original story by Pullman that still stands the test of time even in the post-Harry Potter world! Excellent performance by narrator (Pullman himself) and the whole cast.

    "Highly recomended"

    Philip Pulmans Dark Materials trilogy is so far an amazing audiobook all round. We get Pullmans naration as well as different narrators for different characters, it really pulls you in from the start of Nothern Lights and you just cant switch it off lol the story keeps coming again and again hardly giving you a place to be able to stop for the day/night.

    I will definately be listening to the trilogy again in the future.

    So far, these are the best audiobooks, (book 1 & 2 so far but im more than sure book 3 The Amber Spy Glass will keep the excellent story going at the good pace as the others), i have listened to so far.

    Weell, I'm away to start book 3

    "Great except for music at intervals"

    Everything about this story is great except for the weird music at the intervals between chapters - it's really loud and really jolting, but the rest of the performance is wonderful - the narrator and cast are perfect.
