Closely following publication of La Belle Sauvage, the first volume of The Book of Dust, this is the stunning graphic novel adaptation of Northern Lights, part of the His Dark Materials trilogy - and available in hardback for the very first time.
The incredible story of Lyra Belacqua will begin in La Belle Sauvage - the first volume of The Book of Dust.
Now you have the opportunity to revisit her adventures in Northern Lights, with this graphic novel adaptation of a masterpiece, which comes to life with incredible full-colour art.
Follow Lyra's story once again in a way you've never experienced it before, as the arrival of her fearsome uncle, Lord Asriel, draws her to the heart of a terrible struggle — a struggle born of Gobblers and stolen children, witch clans and armoured bears.
Lyra hurtles toward danger in the cold far North, never suspecting the shocking truth, that she alone is destined to win, or to lose, this more-than-mortal battle.
This edition combines all three illustrated volumes of the story, now available for the very first time in hardback.
“Readers are quickly drawn into the dreaming spires of Jordan College, the magnificence of Lyra’s nemesis Mrs. Coulter’s mansion, and the fens of the water-dwelling gyptians, all presented in a fast-paced series of compressed, closely-worked panels. The story’s signature fantasies [. . .] are realized with compelling force. Skillfully translated back into English, Melchior-Durand and Oubrerie’s retelling will bring Pullman’s work new fans and give previous readers new pleasure.”
