The book of dust volume one
La Belle Sauvage (The Book of Dust, #1) by Philip PullmanMalcolm Polstead is the kind of boy who notices everything but is not much noticed himself. And so perhaps it was inevitable that he would become a spy...
Malcolms father runs an inn called the Trout, on the banks of the river Thames, and all of Oxford passes through its doors. Malcolm and his d?mon, Asta, routinely overhear news and gossip, and the occasional scandal, but during a winter of unceasing rain, Malcolm catches wind of something new: intrigue.
He finds a secret message inquiring about a dangerous substance called Dust--and the spy it was intended for finds him.
When she asks Malcolm to keep his eyes open, Malcolm sees suspicious characters everywhere; Lord Asriel, clearly on the run; enforcement agents from the Magisterium; an Egyptian named Coram with warnings just for Malcolm; and a beautiful woman with an evil monkey for a d?mon. All are asking about the same thing: a girl--just a baby--named Lyra.
Lyra is the kind of person who draws people in like magnets. And Malcolm will brave any danger, and make shocking sacrifices, to bring her safely through the storm.

The Book of Dust Vol 1: La Belle Sauvage by Philip Pullman review – worth the wait
Featuring Lyra Belacqua, expect alethiometers, daemons, the Magisterium and more.. Find out more about the new book. With Lyra, he is caught up in a terrifying adventure that takes him into a new world…. Their tale is topical as it centres on the struggle between a despotic and totalitarian organisation that wants to stifle speculation and enquiry, and those who believe that thought and speech should be free. Philip Pullman's magnificent bestseller is now in paperback, with new additional illustrations. He is happiest playing with his daemon, Asta, in their canoe, La Belle Sauvage.
Our Book of the Year is both a matchless work of standalone fiction and an exciting new doorway into the world of His Dark Materials. Seven years have passed since the closing scene of The Amber Spyglass , and The Secret Commonwealth returns to the story of Lyra, now an independent young woman, ready to shake off the spires of Oxford for heady and dangerous adventure across Europe and into Asia.
