The Golden Compass

The Golden Compass *Click here to request this book* In THE GOLDEN COMPASS, (the first book in THE DARK MATERIALS TRILOGY) Phillip Pullman gives readers a breathtakingly rich vision of a world shades removed from and more mystical than our own, infused with magic and informed by reason, where everyone has a personal daemon in animal form that is the perfect complement of their personality, and to which they are bound with their whole soul. Here readers meet Lyra, headstrong and independent, who is caught in a web in which science and politics are entangled. She is determined to discover why hideous experiments are being performed on children who have been snatched for mysterious scientific purposes and to rescue them.

Pullman is a master fantasist, the equal of J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis. The movie based on THE GOLDEN COMPASS opens in December. While you wait, take the test and find your own daemon. Mrs Mac did and you can see her daemon at:
