Twenty years have passed since the events of La Belle Sauvage saw the baby Lyra Belacqua begin her life-changing journey. It is almost ten years since readers left Lyra and the love of her young life, Will Parry, on a park bench in Oxford’s Botanic Gardens. Now, in The Secret Commonwealth, we meet Lyra Silvertongue once more. And she is no longer a child… This new adventure sees Lyra, now twenty years old, and her daemon Pantalaimon drawn into the complex and dangerous factions of a world they never knew existed. Pulled along on his own journey too is Malcolm; once a boy with a boat, now a dutiful man with a strong desire to do what is right. All of them must travel far beyond the edges of Oxford, across Europe and deep into Asia, in search of a city haunted by daemons, a secret at the heart of a desert, and the mystery of the elusive Dust…
