From the author of the phenomenal His Dark Materials trilogy comes the next chapter in the story of Lyra Silvertongue . . .

Lyra Silvertongue is now studying at St Sophia's College, Oxford, with her daemon Pantalaimon. They are not getting on. Lyra is questioning everything she once held dear.

Pan misses the impulsiveness of their youth. When an act of terrible violence breaks the peace of the Oxford night, Lyra and Pan's relationship reaches a crisis and they are drawn, far from home, into the dangerous factions of a world they had no idea existed. The Secret Commonwealth is truly a book for our times; a powerful adventure and a thought-provoking look at what it is to understand yourself, to grow up and make sense of the world around you.

This is storytelling at its very best from one of our greatest writers. *The first book in The Book of Dust trilogy, La Belle Sauvage, is coming to the stage in the summer of this year. Performed at The Bridge Theatre from July 2020, it will be a theatrical spectacle not to be missed*_____Reviews for The Secret Commonwealth: The Book of Dust Volume Two:"[Pullman] has created a fantasy world, made yet more satisfying in rigour and stylistic elegance.

This is a book for getting older with" Guardian, Book of the Week"The Secret Commonwealth is ablaze with light and life. The writing is exquisite; every sentence sings ... To read Pullman is to experience the world refreshed, aglow, in Technicolour" i"Pullman's story is still thought-provoking ...

This book elegantly weaves in live issues, from Europe's refugee crisis to facts in the post-truth era. And Pullman's prose is rewarding as ever" The Times"A long, taxing, complex journey, laced with beauty, terror and philosophy" Metro"As ever, Pullman's story is complex and vast but home to some of the finest storytelling in the 21st century. Revel in whole new worlds and enjoy one of literature's most wonderful heroines before she comes to HBO and the BBC" Stylist.co.uk "Pullman is confronting readers with the horrors of our own world reflected back at us.

In The Secret Commonwealth he creates a fearful symmetry" The Herald
