THE GOLDEN COMPASS: HIS DARK MATERIALS SERIES #1, by Philip Pullman
His Dark Materials is now an HBO Original Series starring Dafne Keen, Ruth Wilson, James McAvoy and Lin-Manuel Miranda!
Lyra is rushing to the cold, far North, where witch clans and armored bears rule. North, where the Gobblers take the children they steal – including their friend Roger. North, where her fearsome uncle Asriel is trying to build a bridge to a parallel world.
Can one small girl make a difference in such great and terrible endeavors? This is Lyra: a savage, a schemer, a liar and as fierce and true a companion as Roger or Asriel could want. But, what Lyra doesn't know is that to help one of them will be to betray the other...
A masterwork of storytelling and suspense, Philip Pullman's award-winning The Golden Compass is the first in His Dark Materials series, which continues with The Subtle Knife and The Amber Spyglass.
