***** THE BOOK OF DUST, the long-awaited new novel from Philip Pullman set in the world of His Dark Materials, has been hailed by the New York Times as "a stunning achievement."***** The spellbinding sequel to 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," continues the epic adventure, catapulting readers between worlds, and toward a devastating discovery. Lost in a new world, Lyra finds Will--a boy on the run, a murderer--a worthy and welcome ally. For this is a world where soul-eating Specters stalk the streets and witches share the skies with troops of angels. Each is searching--Lyra for the meaning of Dark Matter, Will for his missing father--but what they find instead is a deadly secret, a knife of untold power. And neither Lyra nor Will suspects how tightly their lives, their loves, their destinies are bound together...until they are split apart. A #1 New York Times Bestseller Published in 40 Countries "Just as quick-moving and unputdownable as The Golden Compass . . . . The mysteries deepen and the wonders grow even more extravagant." -- The Washington Post "Pullman's imagination soars . . . A literary rollercoaster ride you won't want to miss."-- The Boston Globe "The story gallops with ferocious momentum . . . Devilishly inventive." -- The New York Times Book Review
