His Dark Materials & The Book of Dust 

A story of Dust and daemons, of witches and armoured bears, truth-telling instruments and subtle knives, angels and harpies and doorways between parallel universes, His Dark Materials has become one of the most influential and widely loved series in modern fiction. Beginning with Northern Lights, and then proceeding on to The Subtle Knife and finally The Amber Spyglass, Philip Pullman later returned to his spellbinding narrative with the extraordinary prequel, La Belle Sauvage, the first volume of The Book of Dust.

The original His Dark Materials trilogy is soon to be broadcast as a highly-anticipated BBC adaptation.
