TITLE: THE SUBTLE KNIFE
AUTHOR: PHILLIP PULLMAN
Detail: nr. 2 His Dark Materials trilogy
Will in only 12 years old when he brings his mother to safety, takes some letters written by his father who disappeared when he was one, kills a man and leaves.
In Oxford, he finds a window into a different world, a place called Cittagazze, where adults are being hunted by Spectres and turned into empty shells. It's also where he meets Lyra, and although it takes a little while and some great danger, they discover that their purposes are linked.
When Will acquires the Subtle knife that will cut through everything, they set off on a journey to find Will's father and help Lord Asriel, all the while with danger close behind them and heartbreaking loss just around the corner.
I can't wait for part three and the conclusion.
