About this title

Synopsis:

***** Just announced! THE BOOK OF DUST, the long-awaited new work from Philip Pullman, set in the world of His Dark Materials, will be published as a work in three parts, with the first volume to arrive in October 2017! *****


The unforgettable His Dark Materials trilogy that began with The Golden Compass?the modern fantasy classic that Entertainment Weekly named an "All-Time Greatest Novel" and Newsweek hailed as a "Top 100 Book of All Time"?and continued with The Subtle Knife, reaches its astonishing conclusion in The Amber Spyglass.


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.

"Masterful.... This title confirms Pullman's inclusion in the company of C.S. Lewis and Tolkien." ?Smithsonian Magazine

"Pullman has created the last great fantasy masterpiece of the twentieth century. An astounding achievement." ?The Cincinnati Enquirer

"War, politics, magic, science, individual lives and cosmic destinies are all here . . . shaped and assembled into a narrative of tremendous pace by a man with a generous, precise intelligence. I am completely enchanted." ?The New York Times Book Review

"Breathtaking adventure . . . a terrific story, eloquently told." ?The Boston Globe

Recensione:

"The book rollicks and careers with the narrative gale force we've come to expect.  Philip Pullman achieves effects that rival the best accomplishments of the earlier books.  In any given chapter Pullman offers more sensuous description and narrative brio than are found in most entire novels." --Starred review in The Horn Book
