The Secret Commonwealth

In Stock Online
From the author of the phenomenal His Dark Materials trilogy comes the next chapter in the story of Lyra Silvertongue. This is based shortly after the events of the previous series.

Lyra Silvertongue is now studying at St Sophia's College, Oxford, with her daemon Pantalaimon.

They are not getting on, due to Lyra reading a dubious book. Lyra is questioning everything she once held dear. Pan misses the impulsiveness of their youth.

When a man is murdered in the Oxford night, Lyra and Pan's relationship reaches a crisis and they are drawn, far from home, into the dangerous factions of a world they had no idea existed.

Both travel to an almost mythical place to try and discover what is happening in their world. The Magisterium has many agents in the world that want Lyra dead, for fear of discovering what rose water is and probably much more.

The final novel may reveal what the Magisterium are trying to achieve and how Lyra, Pan and the secret commonwealth can thwart them.


"Pullman's story is still thought-provoking. This book elegantly weaves in live issues, from Europe's refugee crisis to facts in the post-truth era. And Pullman's prose is rewarding as ever" The Times

"As ever, Pullman's story is complex and vast but home to some of the finest storytelling in the 21st century. Revel in whole new worlds and enjoy one of literature's most wonderful heroines before she comes to HBO and the BBC" Stylist

"Pullman is confronting readers with the horrors of our own world reflected back at us. In The Secret Commonwealth he creates a fearful symmetry" The Herald
