There are worlds beyond our own - the Compass will show the way... The second novel in Philip Pullman's epic HIS DARK MATERIALS trilogy. The first, NORTHERN LIGHTS, is now the stunning motion picture THE GOLDEN COMPASS, made by New Line Cinema and Scholastic Media. THE SUBTLE KNIFE brings Lyra to an eerie city where she meets a mysterious boy - a murderer. Will's fate is strangely linked with hers, and together they must find a powerful and secret object which people from many worlds would kill to possess. "A work of genius" TIME OUT
This is the second fabulously written novel in the His Dark Materials series. Overall this book was enthralling but not quite up to the standards set in the Northern Lights. It was still an excellent book though.
