Though ostensibly written for children, this heroic and heart-wrenching His Dark Materials trilogy is beloved by readers of all ages. These three novels unlock the door to parallel universes where demons and winged creatures live side by side with humans, and a mysterious entity called Dust just might have the power to unite the universes—if it isn't destroyed first. Lyra, Pantalaimon, Will, and the rest embark on the most breathtaking, heartbreaking adventure of their lives. The fate of the universe is in their hands.

Startling revelations arrive in this conclusion to the trilogy. Lyra must pay a price to walk through the land of the dead. Dr. Malone's amber spyglass exerts a haunting power. Most shocking of all, someone knows the names of who will live—and who will die—for love. All the while war rages with the Kingdom of Heaven, a brutal battle that will uncover the secret of Dust.
