From the world of Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials - now a major critically acclaimed BBC series.
She had asked: what is he? A friend or an enemy?
The alethiometer answered: he is a murderer.
When she saw the answer, she relaxed at once.
Lyra finds herself in a shimmering, haunted otherworld - Cittàgazze, where soul-eating Spectres stalk the streets and wingbeats of distant angels sound against the sky.
But she is not without allies: 12-year-old Will Parry, fleeing for his life after taking another's, has also stumbled into this strange new realm.
On a perilous journey from world to world, Lyra and Will uncover a deadly secret: an object of extraordinary and devastating power.
And with every step, they move closer to an even greater threat - and the shattering truth of their own destiny.
Read by Philip Pullman and a full cast of narrators.
