Northern Lights by Philip Pullman

Worlds. Children. Daemons (pronounced demons). These three words will link together to form the gripping tale that Philip Pullman has created.

The story begins when Lyra meets the charming Mrs Coulter at a dinner. Soon after, Lyra is adopted by her, but sinister ideas encourage her to abscond. Lyra is on a mission to bring Lord Asriel the alethiometer she was given. Is there something else Lyra must give, and if so, what?

Lyra’s journey to Lord Asriel is original, with a wonderful assortment of characters. Talking about characters, the way they are described in Northern Lights makes their personalities really come alive, especially Lyra. I would highly recommend this book to anyone aged 8 and up. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
