Synopsis

Northern Lights - The Graphic Novel by Philip Pullman

Lyra and Pantalaimon have journeyed north, in search of the missing children and Lord Asriel. But the frozen wilds are harsh and unhospitable, and fearsome enemies are waiting at every turn. If Lyra is to succeed in her quest, she must enlist the help of unexpected allies: an armoured bear and a witch queen. The path ahead will lead to dark truths and grave danger...This is the second book in a stunning three-volume graphic novel adaptation of Northern Lights, the first of which won the Prix Jeunesse du Festival d'Angouleme.

Reviews

Readers are quickly drawn into the dreaming spires of Jordan College, the magnificence of Lyra's nemesis Mrs. Coulter's mansion, and the fens of the water-dwelling gyptians, all presented in a fast-paced series of compressed, closely-worked panels. The story's signature fantasies [...] are realized with compelling force. Skillfully translated back into English, Melchior-Durand and Oubrerie's retelling will bring Pullman's work new fans and give previous readers new pleasure. Publishers Weekly (starred review) Superb ... all-stops-out thrilling. The Washington Post
