Philip Pullman announces second trilogy to His Dark Materia

#1  Postby Keep It Real » Feb 15, 2017 8:36 pm

Philip Pullman has ended years of speculation by announcing that The Book of Dust, an epic fantasy trilogy that will stand alongside his bestselling series, His Dark Materials, will be published in October around the world.

The as-yet-untitled first volume of The Book of Dust, due out on 19 October, will be set in London and Oxford, with the action running parallel to the His Dark Materials trilogy. A global bestseller since the first volume, Northern Lights, was published in 1995, Pullman’s series has sold more than 17.5m copies and been translated into 40 languages.

She battled through in every kind of tribulation,
She revelled in adventure and imagination.
She never listened to no hater, liar,
Breaking boundaries and chasing fire.
Oh, my my! Oh my, she flies!

He set a high bar with the 1st 3. Book of dust, eh? Could be tricky as a page turner...

I couldn't get through the series. I got totally bored with The Subtle Knife.

I enjoyed the triolgy, although I found the "lets kill god, woooh" rhetoric rather tedious and detracted from the more compelling story about the children which, fortunately, the story rallied to at the end.

No need to kill God, just dethrone and exile him.
