Waterstones Says

Arriving ahead of the BBC’s much-anticipated adaptation of His Dark Materials, the second chapter in Philip Pullman’s epic trilogy, The Secret Commonwealth: The Book of Dust Volume Two, intertwines the stories of Lyra Silvertongue and Malcom Polstead as they face new and dangerous secrets. Journeying far from Oxford’s spires across the globe, this is an adventure like no other. A powerful story about the truths that underpin our world, the divisions that lie between love and responsibility and what it truly means to grow up.

This edition has now sold out, a standard edition is available to pre-order here.

The ultimate collector’s item, our exclusive edition is presented in a beautiful slipcase with beautiful details, including original endpapers. Strictly limited, this sumptuously designed special hardback features an embossed raven dæmon inisgnia and every copy is signed by Philip Pullman

‘It used to be you who was impulsive,’ said Pan, ‘and me who kept holding you back. We’re different now.’

A boy and a boat, a girl and her dæmon, their stories inextricably bound.

It is twenty years since the events of La Belle Sauvage: The Book of Dust Volume One unfolded and saw the baby Lyra Belacqua begin her life-changing journey.

It is seven years since readers left Lyra and the love of her young life, Will Parry, on a park bench in Oxford’s Botanic Gardens at the end of the ground-breaking, bestselling His Dark Materials sequence.

Now, in The Secret Commonwealth, we meet Lyra Silvertongue. And she is no longer a child...

The second volume of Sir Philip Pullman’s The Book of Dust sees Lyra, now twenty years old, and her dæmon Pantalaimon, forced to navigate their relationship in a way they could never have imagined, and drawn into the complex and dangerous factions a world that they had no idea existed.

Pulled along on his own journey too is Malcolm; once a boy with a boat and a mission to save a baby from the flood, now a man with a strong sense of duty and a desire to do what is right.

Theirs is a world at once familiar and extraordinary, and they must travel far beyond the edges of Oxford, across Europe and into Asia, in search for what is lost – a city haunted by dæmons, a secret at the heart of a desert, and the mystery of the elusive Dust.

The Secret Commonwealth is truly a book for our times; a powerful adventure and a thought-provoking look at what it is to understand yourself, to grow up and make sense of the world around you. This is storytelling at its very best from one of our greatest writers.

Not suitable for younger readers.
