The Secret Commonwealth: Pre-Order



Published 3rd October 2019

Lyra is no longer a child. The Secret Commonwealth is set 20 years after the events of La
Belle Sauvage: The Book of Dust Volume One unfolded, and seven years after readers left
Lyra and Will Parry on a park bench in Oxford’s Botanic Gardens in The Amber Spyglass,
the final book in the His Dark Materials series.

Global in scale, The Secret Commonwealth: The Book of Dust Volume Two sees Lyra, now
an independent young woman, forced to navigate a complex and dangerous new world as she
ventures far beyond the edges of Oxford, across Europe and into Asia, in search of an elusive
town said to be haunted by dæmons. As well as taking readers on an exhilarating journey
into places that are at once familiar and extraordinary, the book is a timely exploration of
what it is to be human, to grow up and make sense of the world around us, from one of the
UK’s greatest writers.
