The incredible story of Lyra Belacqua will begin, and continue, in The Book of Dust. Now you have the opportunity to revisit her adventures in The 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 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 armored 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 is the full story, now in hardback, available for the very first time.
