Clearly I was misinformed. Or I chose to judge the book by its predecessor.
Do you feel otherwise? Let me know here:
I was so wrong. If you read my review on the first book of the series, The Golden Compass, you’d find me cribbing about the tiny details that were missing in the book.
Gosh, I didn’t know I’d find the answers to most of them here, in the second installment.
I picked this book up, only for filling in the answers. But I found much more than just answers. A bigger plot, a bigger concept, a bigger enemy and a bigger war.
This is what I felt while I was reading that book!
So, for the gist – Lyra is joined by young Will in a third world, a world other than the two worlds each of them hails from. There are multiple worlds stitched together, existing in parallel, where time and space mean nothing. Lyra and Will have their own destinies to fulfill. They wander back and forth between the worlds and discover people of power, things of power.
