*Sequel to The Golden Compass.* Following Lyra’s fantastic journeys in The Golden Compass, The Subtle Knife offers a young hero–from our world–who is a match for Lyra Silvertongue and whose destiny is every bit as shattering. Like Lyra, Will Parry has spent his childhood playing games. Unlike hers, though, his have been deadly serious. With a mentally ill mother, he learned to take care of himself and escape notice early on. These skills are perfect for the adventures that he and Lyra face in yet another fantastic world, in their search for DUST.
I usually find myself disappointed in sequels, but this one is wonderful. Pullman gives us another great and relatable character in Will. He and Lyra get up to some amazing and exciting adventures! – Jessica, Teen Librarian
