La Belle Sauvage: The Book of Dust volume one by Philip Pullman

Seventeen years after Philip Pullman’s third volume of ‘His Dark Materials’ trilogy sealed the door on Dust, daemons, witches and armoured bears, a tantalising new chapter now lies open with La Belle Sauvage: The Book of Dust Volume One.

Winding the clock back a decade before the events of the original series, La Belle Sauvage promises the return of Lyra – here still an infant – and the emergence of young Malcolm Polstead, the future academic who suddenly finds himself drawn into the cloak-and-dagger intrigue of Lord Asriel, Lyra’s father. Beyond lie the elements that shape their world; the daemons that mirror their souls, the strange technology of the aletheiometer, the dark powers of the  Magisterum and, above all, the Dust – salvation to some, the source of infinite evil to others.
