About this item

His Dark Materials, the wildly popular, bestselling young adult fantasy trilogy by Philip Pullman, is available in a single paperback omnibus. In one volume, readers can experience the intense epic revolving around the brave Lyra Belacqua as she searches for answers to the formidable mysteries that are poised to end her world and that of many others. The three novels included are THE GOLDEN COMPASS, THE SUBTLE KNIFE, and THE AMBER SPYGLASS.
The only hardcover omnibus of the best-selling and award-winning fantasy trilogy, in a Contemporary Classics edition.
Philip Pullman's trilogy is a masterpiece that transcends genre and appeals to readers of all ages. His heroine, Lyra, is an orphan living in a parallel universe in which science, theology, and magic are entwined. The epic story that takes us through the three novels is not only a spellbinding adventure featuring armored polar bears, magical devices, witches, and daemons, it is also an audacious and profound reimagining of Milton's Paradise Lost that has already inspired a number of serious books of literary criticism. Like J. R. R. Tolkien and C. S. Lewis before him, Pullman has invented a richly detailed and marvelously imagined world, complex and thought-provoking enough to enthrall adults as well as younger readers. An utterly entrancing blend of metaphysical speculation and bravura storytelling, His Dark Materials is a monumental and enduring achievement.
