The Book of Dust – Philip Pullman

The Book of Dust by Philip Pullman

Philip Pullman returns to the world of His Dark Materials with this magnificent new novel, set ten years before Northern Lights and featuring his much-loved character, Lyra Belacqua.

Eleven-year-old Malcolm Polstead and his dæmon, Asta, live with his parents at the Trout Inn near Oxford. Across the River Thames (which Malcolm navigates often using his beloved canoe, a boat by the name of La Belle Sauvage) is the Godstow Priory where the nuns live. Malcolm learns they have a guest with them; a baby by the name of Lyra Belacqua . . .

Why I Can’t Wait:

His Dark Materials is one of my favourite series so I’m incredibly excited to return to that world. I’ve ordered the Waterstones Deluxe Collector’s Edition but I also want the standard hardback as the woodcut style cover is stunning.

Release Date: 19 October 2017

(Goodreads | Amazon | Book Depository | Waterstones)
