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!
