It is twenty years since the events of La Belle Sauvage: The Book of Dust Volume One unfolded and saw the baby Lyra Belacqua begin her life-changing journey.

It is almost ten years since readers left Lyra and the love of her young life, Will Parry, on a park bench in Oxford's Botanic Gardens at the end of the ground-breaking, bestselling His Dark Materials sequence.

Now, in The Secret Commonwealth, we meet Lyra Silvertongue. And she is no longer a child . . .

The second volume of Philip Pullman's The Book of Dust sees Lyra, now twenty years old, and her daemon Pantalaimon, forced to navigate their relationship in a way they could never have imagined, and drawn into the complex and dangerous factions of a world that they had no idea existed. Pulled along on his own journey too is Malcolm; once a boy with a boat and a mission to save a baby from the flood, now a man with a strong sense of duty and a desire to do what is right.

Theirs is a world at once familiar and extraordinary, and they must travel far beyond the edges of Oxford, across Europe and into Asia, in search for what is lost - a city haunted by daemons, a secret at the heart of a desert, and the mystery of the elusive Dust.

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 La Belle Sauvage: The Book of Dust Volume One:

A journey to the east

Eine Buchhändlerin/ein Buchhändler, Thalia-Buchhandlung Dresden

A beautifully written piece of art, detailing the self (re-)discovery of a young women on one hand. On the other hand it is a full fledged spy thriller. With this fans of the series finally get a broader view of Pullman‘s magnificant world. Just as Lyra realizes there is more to her world than Oxford and her trip to the north so does the viewer. A must read for every fan of the series!


Ulrike Dappert-Pohl, Thalia-Buchhandlung Ludwigsburg

Dieses Buch fesselt und erschafft eine unglaubliche Parallelwelt mit lebendigen, authentischen Personen und hat dabei eine solche gedankliche Tiefe, dass man darüber in's Philosophieren kommt. Unbedingt empfehlenswert für kluge und tiefsinnige junge Menschen ab 14 Jahren und alle, die eine Geschichte suchen, in der man sich verlieren kann.

Was soll man sagen? Einfach ein sehr gutes Buch aus einer sehr guten Reihe. Klare Empfehlung. Ich verstehe nur nicht warum das ein Kinderbuch sein soll.
