Shortlisted for the British Book Awards Fiction Book of the Year 2020
From the author of the phenomenal His Dark Materials trilogy comes the next chapter in the story of Lyra Silvertongue . . .
Lyra Silvertongue is now studying at St Sophia’s College, Oxford, with her daemon Pantalaimon.
They are not getting on. Lyra is questioning everything she once held dear. Pan misses the impulsiveness of their youth.
When an act of terrible violence breaks the peace of 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.
The Secret Commonwealth is truly a book for our times; a powerful adventure and a thought-provoking look at what it is to understand yourself, to grow up and make sense of the world around you. This is storytelling at its very best from one of our greatest writers.
