Lyra's Oxford

by Philip Pullman

Part of the His Dark Materials Series

Lyra's Oxford Synopsis

A BEGUILING NEW EPISODE FROM THE UNIVERSE OF HIS DARK MATERIALS Lyra's Oxford opens two years after the conclusion of Philip Pullman's The Amber Spyglass in the comfort and familiarity of Jordan College, where Lyra and her daemon, Pantalaimon, sit on the sun-drenched roof looking out over all of Oxford. But their peace is shattered when a strange bird - a witch's daemon, on it's own - tumbles out of the sky, in search of a healing elixer to cure his witch of a strange new disease. Lyra and Pan decided to help - witches are friends, of course - but the closer their winding walk leads them towards the infamous Oxford alchemist, the stronger Lyra's sense that something is amiss. INCLUDES FOLDOUT MAP AND OTHER MATTER NEVER BEFORE SEEN IN THIS WORLD

It is one of those grand narrative strokes that Pullman can sometimes pull off with such casual looking ease and faith.

Truly a collector's piece, this is a must The Good Book Guide This is a book for all Pullman readers and is sufficiently intriguing to entice new readers into Lyra's world Child Education
