The Subtle Knife by Philip Pullman

Flip the pages of The Subtle Knife and be increasingly more interested in its gripping story.

Lyra is searching for dust, and Will is hunting for his father. Both children are on the run, and as they travel between worlds, their bond together grows stronger. Now bearer of the subtle knife, Will is the one who must take the force of something terrible…

The Subtle Knife is the first book I have read to make me cry. Other tales have brought tears to my eyes, but have never made them spill. This bundle of pages has sincerely helped me to understand the characters, and feel their emotions. At one stage I cried out “No, no” in frustration, for I had a bad feeling about characters meeting, or not meeting. There is a fabulously surprising story twist in this cart load of paragraphs, and at the beginning of the book, when Lyra is described, she seems to emanate a totally different personality than in Northern Lights, (which you can read my review on). I would suggest reading the Amber Spyglass (which I am about to read), before going onto a new collection of words, as it is the last adventure in the series, so will probably knot up all the strings of stories.I highly recommend The Subtle Knife, the second book in the His Dark Materials trilogy, in which Northern Lights is the first. I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did!
