Unclipped dust wrapper faintly edgeworn. A very nice copy indeed.; The second volume in the "His Dark Materials" trilogy. The first volume was made into a film.; 'Lyra Silvertongue's quest to find the origins of Dust--the very stuff of the universe continues. We meet Will, a 12-year-old from our world, who is trying to protect his emotionally fragile mother and to locate his lost father, an explorer who vanished years before. Instead, Will finds a window into another world, where Lyra and her daemon have also tumbled. Their lives become inextricably entwined when Lyra's alethiometer gives her a simple command: find Will's father. The world of Cittągazze holds the talisman of the subtle knife, which can cut through anything, even the space between worlds. It wounds Will, but he is bound to it by a destiny neither he nor Lyra (nor readers) yet understand." For US grades 7-12 (and up). Marketed in the UK as a children's book it was originally found in adult Science Fiction/Fantasy sections of bookstores in the US. Highly recommended.
