Waterstones Says

A standalone novella from the incandescent imagination of Philip Pullman, Serpentine takes place after the conclusion of His Dark Materials and finds Lyra and Pan on a perilous journey North in search of an old friend. 

Lyra Silvertongue and her daemon Pantalaimon have left the events of His Dark Materials behind. Here in this snapshot of their forever-changed lives they return to the North to revisit an old friend where we will learn that things are not exactly as they seem.

The perfect re-entry for fans of His Dark Materials and a wonderful companion to The Book of Dust. Serpentine is a brand-new treat for Pullman fans old and new.

I don’t think I will ever get enough of Lyra and her world but it’s always so extraordinary to slip back into it from time to time.
