The Amber Spyglass – Philip Pullman

Sequel to The Golden Compass and The Subtle Knife

This book starts with readers  immediately discovering  who captured Lyra at the end of The Subtle Knife, though we’ve yet to discern whether this individual’s intent is good, evil, or somewhere in between. We also learn that Will still possesses the blade that allows him to cut between worlds, and has been joined by two winged companions who are determined to escort him to Lord Asriel’s mountain redoubt. Will, however, has only one goal in mind–to rescue his friend and return to her the alethiometer, an instrument that has revealed so much to her.

I seriously recommend this series to anyone!  This is an excellent ending to the Dark Materials trilogy.  Pullman does an excellent job writing about love, the mysteries of life, and what religion really means to people, all wrapped in mind-blowing adventures!   – Jessica, Teen Librarian
