The Book of Dust: Volume 1 La Belle Sauvage by Philip Pullman

So good! Just finished this amazing book tonight! It was incredible to dive back into this world. The story was thrilling from start to finish. I practically inhaled it. So many new characters. Some familiar old characters. Same world. New foes.

The sequel, The Secret Commonwealth, expected October 3rd, 2019!

Online I found mention of this new trilogy. Apparently Pullman described it as an “equel” taking place before, during, and after the events of The Golden Compass trilogy, rather than being a prequel or sequel. I like that idea. It’s fascinating. I love how Pullman continues to build on this incredible world. Reading The Book of Dust was like I had never left Lyra’s Oxford. It felt like coming home. It made me so excited for the next two books in this trilogy and the BBC tv show that’s set to air soon. I cannot wait!
