From the world of Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials- now a major critically acclaimed BBC series
‘We’re going to the land of the dead and we’re going to come back.’
Will and Lyra, whose fates are bound together by powers beyond their own worlds, have been violently separated.
But they must find each other, for ahead of them lies the greatest war that has ever been – and a journey to a dark place from which no one has ever returned . . .
"Gripping and extraordinary."
"An astonishing imaginative feat – Pullman has conjured a universe of an intensity and beauty that leave one gasping . . . for sheer inventiveness he has no equal."
"Pullman is such an original and compelling storyteller that his books make reading an aerobic activity; they literally leave you breathless."
Lyra is all grown up in the latest instalment of the Book of Dust series, which has plenty to say about life and politics in 2019.
Michael Sheen returns to narrate The Secret Commonwealth, the second instalment in Philip Pullman’s The Book of Dust trilogy. Watch how the Welsh actor immerses himself in the Pullman world to develop unique character voices.
