His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman


The Golden Compass, His Dark Materials, Philip Pullman, Lyra

I just finished this trilogy and I enjoyed it from start to finish.  I was familiar with the first novel, having seen the movie, but the second and third were even better, since I had no sense of the outcome or the series of events that would come together to create such a vivid story. 


His Dark Materials follows a young girl, Lyra Belacqua, a clever, curious, and fierce character, who relishes running wild with her compatriots in Oxford or tormenting the scholars at Jordan College tasked with tutoring her.  In Lyra’s world, each individual has the company of their daemon, a part of themselves taking the form of an animal.


Lyra and her daemon, Pantalaimon, travel to other worlds and collide with intriguing, complex, and lovely allies, as well as, corrupt, calculating, and fierce foes along the way.  If you are looking a for a novel with science fiction and fantasy elements, this is a captivating story.  Let me know what you think!
