Annotation

  • An omnibus edition of the award-winning trilogy traces the parallel-universe story of Lyra, who lives in a metaphysical world where human souls take the forms of animal companions and who at the side of magical and spiritual protectors learns about her identity, her divine destiny and a fantastical substance feared by the church as the source of original sin. 20,000 first printing.
  • Lyra Belacqua tries to prevent kidnapped children from becoming the subject of gruesome experiments, decides to help Will Parry search for his father, and finds that she and Will are caught in a battle between the forces of the Authority and those gathered by her uncle, Lord Asriel.

Summary

HIS DARK MATERIALS IS NOW AN HBO ORIGINAL SERIES STARRING DAFNE KEEN, RUTH WILSON, JAMES McAVOY, AND LIN-MANUEL MIRANDA!

The only hardcover omnibus of the best-selling and award-winning fantasy trilogy.


Philip Pullman's trilogy is a masterpiece that transcends genre and appeals to readers of all ages. His heroine, Lyra, is an orphan living in a parallel universe in which science, theology, and magic are entwined. The epic story that takes us through the three novels is not only a spellbinding adventure featuring armored polar bears, magical devices, witches, and daemons, it is also an audacious and profound reimagining of Milton's Paradise Lost that has already inspired a number of serious books of literary criticism. Like J. R. R. Tolkien and C. S. Lewis before him, Pullman has invented a richly detailed and marvelously imagined world, complex and thought-provoking enough to enthrall adults as well as younger readers. An utterly entrancing blend of metaphysical speculation and bravura storytelling, His Dark Materials is a monumental and enduring achievement.

Don't miss Philip Pullman's epic new trilogy set in the world of His Dark Materials!
