An epic quest between worlds. Arctic ice and mortal danger. Fearless writing. Tons of awards. Hold on to your soul. Whatever we say, we’ll never explain just how brilliant this series is. Words can’t do it justice. Unless they’re Philip Pullman’s, of course. Witch-queens. Armoured bears. Doors between worlds. Evil scientists. Spirit animals. Epic battles. This trilogy has it all. Just to give you a flavour: it was voted the best Carnegie Medal winner in seventy years. It won the Whitbread Book of the Year Award (the first ever so-called ‘kids’ book to win a major adult literary prize.) It’s sold over fifteen million copies and upset the Pope. That’s powerful.

But they must find each other, for ahead of them lies the greatest war that has ever been – and a journey to a dark place from which no one has ever returned. How will Lyra and Will survive the terrible sacrifices and challenges placed before them? And as conflict explodes between the worlds and Heaven, what is the knowledge they must seek to bring their long quest to a close? The soul-shaking finale to Philip Pullman’s masterful His Dark Materials trilogy.
