When Lyra´s friend Roger disappears, she and her daemon Pantalaimon, determine to find him. The ensuing quest leads them to the bleak splendour of the North, where armoured bears rule the ice and witch-queens fly through the frozen skies - and where a team of scientists is conducting experiments too horrible to be spoken about.
Lyra overcomes these strange terrors, only to find something yet more perilous waiting for her - something with consequences which may even reach beyond the Nothern Lights...

I really liked this book! Complex young adult fantasy! Well written and with lots of overtones of critic of the here and now...

I got this copy in a book exchange cupboard in the hotel I was staying on Tenerife (Hotel El Tope). I put a BC book in the cupboard in exchange. There is a nice devotement on the inside of the cover - I made a point of not putting the stiker over it (for a Dawn? from a Marie)...

PS: I´d love for my daemon to be a dolfin, but that´d be kind of impractical...

This book is on it´s way to zeydiar in Turkey. She has the book on her wishlist, so I send it to her as RABCK.
The book is part of my lifetime Challenge to get one book to every country of the world (and get a caught as proof).
