Lara Belacqua embarks on a long and dangerous journey in parallel worlds to travel north in order to save her best friend Will and other children who have mysteriously disappeared from becoming the subjects of painful and deadly experiments. Accompanied by her daemon Pantalaimon - a supernatural animal that permanently bonds with one human for life - Lyra encounters newly discovered friends, a polar bear Iorek Byrnison and a witch Serafina Pekkala, and foes, her mother Mrs. Marisa Coulter and golden monkey daemon. This book is full of magical places, fantastic events, and seemingly never ending peril. Although this trilogy is a long read, the story is well told and definitely worth the time.
