  • An excellent prequel

    Smashed out this book in a couple of days - it was a really good prequel to the His Dark Materials series and helped with the back story. Absolutely loved it.

    If there was ever a character that deserved an origin story, that would be Lyra Belacqua of Philip Pullman’s essential His Dark Materials trilogy. Thankfully Pullman saw fit to give us one, because La Belle Sauvage is both the perfect start to that incredible series and a stunning book in its own right.

    Taking place ten years before the events of Northern Lights and telling the story of how exactly Lyra ended up in Jordan College, La Belle Sauvage is Pullman’s magnificent return to the world of Dust and dæmons, and it sings with the same intrigue and wonder that the original trilogy inspired. If you’ve loved the original books and want to introduce your kids to this incredible narrative world, look no further than La Belle Sauvage. Or read it yourself and be astounded all over again...
