A bewitching tale with a fascinating new glimpse of young Lyra and her dæmon, Pantalaimon. This companion to the New York Times bestselling His Dark Materials and The Book of Dust series follows Pullman's beloved characters on a brand new adventure. 

After the world-altering events of The Amber Spyglass,  Lyra and Pan find themselves irrevocably changed.
