The Golden Compass

His Dark Materials ; Book 1

by Philip Pullman


Lyra Belacqua is content to run wild among the scholars of Jodan College, with her daemon familiar always by her side. But the arrival of her fearsome uncle, Lord Asriel, draws her to the heart of a terrible struggle—a struggle born of Gobblers and stolen children, witch clans and armored bears. And as she hurtles toward danger in the cold far North, Lyra never suspects the shocking truth: she alone is destined to win, or to lose, this more-than-mortal battle.

Philip Pullman's award-winningThe Golden Compassis a masterwork of storytelling and suspense, critically acclaimed and hailed as a modern fantasy classic
