Book three in the His Dark Materials trilogy

Publisher: Scholastic

In this exceptional conclusion to the trilogy, Pullman has effectively woven together the disparate strands from Northern Lights and The Subtle Knife to create an extremely satisfying finale.

Lyra and Will, the fiesty protagonists from the first two novels, are reunited to embark on their final, dangerous journey on which the future of all the worlds depend.

As well as developing previously introduced characters, Pullman presents new characters and ideas, stretching the readers' imagination further still.

Tackling tremendous concepts, from the origins of creation, to love, loyalty, betrayal and death, this is a thrilling conclusion to a superb trilogy which will have the reader gripped to the very end.
