Here is the highly anticipated second installment of Philip Pullman's epic fantasy trilogy, begun with the critically acclaimed "The golden compass". Lyra and Will, her newfound friend, tumble separately into the strange tropical otherworld of Cittágazze, "the city of magpies," where adults are curiously absent and children run wild. Here their lives become inextricably entwined when Lyra's alethiometer gives her a simple command: find Will's father. Their search is plagued with obstacles, some familiar and some horribly new and unfathomable, but it eventually brings them closer to Will's father and to the Subtle Knife, a deadly, magical, ancient tool that cuts windows between worlds. Through it all, Will and Lyra find themselves hurtling toward the center of a fierce battle against a force so awesome that leagues of mortals, witches, beasts, and spirits from every world are uniting in fear and anger against it.

The first volume of this trilogy was made into a movie but not this second volume, nor the third. This volume or, presumably, the third volume would be considered sacriligious by most, (I believe) Christian, possibly also Islamic and Jewish Fundemantalists.
