The Secret Commonwealth: The Book of Dust (Volume Two) – Phillip Pullman
From the author of the phenomenal His Dark Materials trilogy comes the next chapter in the story of Lyra Silvertongue . . .
It is 20 years since the events of La Belle Sauvage: The Book of Dust Volume One unfolded and saw the baby Lyra Belacqua begin her life-changing journey.
It is seven years since listeners left Lyra and the love of her young life, Will Parry, on a park bench in Oxford’s Botanic Gardens at the end of the ground-breaking, best-selling His Dark Materials sequence.
Now, in The Secret Commonwealth, we meet Lyra Silvertongue. And she is no longer a child….

Lyra Silvertongue is now studying at St Sophia’s College, Oxford, with her daemon Pantalaimon.
They are not getting on. Lyra is questioning everything she once held dear. Pan misses the impulsiveness of their youth.
When an act of terrible violence breaks the peace of the Oxford night, Lyra and Pan’s relationship reaches a crisis and they are drawn, far from home, into the dangerous factions of a world they had no idea existed.
