When Lyra’s friend Roger disappears, she and her daemon, Pantalaimon, determine to find him. The ensuing quest leads them to the bleak splendour of the North, where armoured bears
rule the ice and witch-queens fly through the frozen skies and where a team of scientists is conducting experiments
too horrible to be spoken about. Lyra overcomes these strange terrors, only to find something yet
more perilous waiting for her — something with consequences which may even reach beyond the Northern Lights…. New Film launched in 2007 called Golden Compass
, based on this series of books.
