Summary:

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 BestsellerPublished in 40 Countries“Just as quick-moving and unputdownable as The Golden Compass. . . .
