Read in August, 2008

Pullman has done it again--writing a beautifully-realized and appealing story set in Lyra's universe. This tale is from a young Lee Scoresby's point of view. Small-town tensions, barroom brawls, and women who aren't quite what they seem at first all have their place, as do the armored bears. In fact, this includes the story of how Lee and Iorek first met--in a scene appropriate to their unique personalities.
