The Subtle Knife (His Dark Materials, Book 2)

paperback    ISBN 13: 9781407130231 | ISBN 10: 1407130234

Will is twelve, and he's just killed a man. Now he's on the run, determined to discover the truth about his missing father. But as he races through the streets of Oxford, desperately seeking sanctuary, he steps through a window into another world.
 
Cittagazze is a strange and unsettling place, where deadly soul-eating Spectres haunt the city streets, and the wingbeats of distant angels sound against the sky. Soon Will finds himself with a companion: a strange, savage girl called Lyra who is searching for something called Dust. But she and Will have not met by accident. Their paths will take them to the eerie Torre degli Angeli, where they must find a powerful and secret object that people from many worlds would kill to possess.
