A stunning graphic novel adaptation of part two of Northern Lights, the first book in the His Dark Materials trilogy.

Lyra and Pantalaimon have journeyed north, in search of the missing children and Lord Asriel. But the frozen wilds are harsh and unhospitable, and fearsome enemies are waiting at every turn. If Lyra is to succeed in her quest, she must enlist the help of unexpected allies: an armoured bear and a witch queen. The path ahead will lead to dark truths and grave danger . . .

The second book in a stunning three-volume graphic novel adaptation of Northern Lights, the first of which won the Prix Jeunesse du Festival d'Angoulême.


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.

Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Superb . . . all-stops-out thrilling.
