Fantasy-Geschichte im Universitätsstädtchen Oxford: Das kleine Büchlein ist in Leinen gebunden und mit hübschen Schwarzweiss-Drucken illustriert. Es stammt offenbar aus einer Trilogie mit Lyra Listenreichs Abenteuern und ihrem Kater Pantalaimon. Er ist ihr Daemon. Die Fantasy-Geschichte ist überhaupt voller Daemonen, Hexen und Alechemisten, was das friedliche Universitätsstädtchen Oxford von der Iffley Road bis hinüber zur Walton Well Road im Laufe der Erzählung zur schauerlichen Szenerie verzerrt. Eigentlich geht es Lyra dabei an den Kragen, aber die Schwäne retten sie vor dem Schlimmsten. So kann sie in Ruhe im College St. Sophias weiterstudieren. Die Story ist ein kleiner fantastischer Psychothriller mit jenem Quentchen englischen Humors, den nur Insider und Anglophile voll kapieren. Ab 12 Jahren, gut, Ruedi W. Schweizer.

Throughout the worlds, the forces of both heaven and hell are mustering to take part in Lord Asriel's audacious rebellion. Each player in this epic drama has a role to play—and a sacrifice to make. Witches, angels, spies, assassins, tempters, and pretenders, no one will remain unscathed. Lyra and Will have the most dangerous task of all. They must journey to a gray-lit world where no living soul has ever gone and from which there is no escape. As war rages and Dust drains from the sky, the fate of the living—and the dead—comes to depend on Lyra and Will. On the choices they make in love, and for love, forevermore.

Philip Pullman is one of the most commercially and critically successful British authors of the past decade. With a writing career extending back to the early 1970s, Pullman's great achievement has been in the publication of the His Dark Materials trilogy: Northern Lights (1995; US title The Golden Compass), The Subtle Knife (1997) and The Amber Spyglass (2000). With these novels, which have appealed equally to children and to adults, Pullman has carved a space for himself as a writer of moral seriousness, imaginative depth and storytelling virtuosity. Claire Squires' book is the first comprehensive and authoritative study of this great writer. The focus is on Pullman's central achievement with His Dark Materials, but it also considers his entire oeuvre. Importantly, the book informs readers about the contexts, sources and influences behind the trilogy, and examines the controversies and debates that have surrounded the trilogy and its creator, since its publication.
