Overview

Though ostensibly written for children, this heroic and heart-wrenching His Dark Materials trilogy is beloved by readers of all ages. These three novels unlock the door to parallel universes where demons and winged creatures live side by side with humans, and a mysterious entity called Dust just might have the power to unite the universes—if it isn't destroyed first. Lyra, Pantalaimon, Will, and the rest embark on the most breathtaking, heartbreaking adventure of their lives. The fate of the universe is in their hands.

Lyra and Will tumble separately into the strange tropical otherworld of Cittàgazze, where adults are curiously absent and children run wild. Their journey is plagued with obstacles, some familiar and some horribly new, but it eventually brings them closer to Will's father and to the Subtle Knife, a deadly, ancient tool that cuts windows between worlds.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
YA-Pullman's "Dark Materials" series needs no introduction to the U.S. market. His three books, The Golden Compass (1996), The Subtle Knife (1997), and The Amber Spyglass (2000), have all been published by Knopf and have enjoyed phenomenal success among the fantasy literature cognoscenti. Now all three volumes in this series have been published in Spanish translation by Ediciones B (Grupo Zeta) out of Barcelona. The most recently published volume in the series has been expertly translated. The Spanish text reads smoothly and will not hamper aficionados. As in the Englishoriginal, the subject matter is dense and the story complex, with multiple plots and myriad characters. It is highly recommended that readers work their way through the series chronologically in order to better follow the story. This book is best suited for advanced readers and may also be selected for adult collections. Hardcore Pullman fans will demand that you provide this series. For all bookstores and libraries. M.O.B.
