About This Item

New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1997. 326 pp, 8vo (8 1/2" H). "The universe has broken wide, and Lyra's friend lies dead. Desperate for answers and set on revenge, Lyra bursts into a new world in pursuit of his killer. Instead, she finds Will, just twelve years old and already a murderer himself. He's on a quest as fierce as Lyra's, and together they strike out into this sunlit otherworld. But Cittagazze is a strange and haunted place. Soul-eating Specters stalk its streets while, high above, the wingbeats of distant angels sound against the sky. And in the mysterious Torre degli Angeli lurks Cittagazze's deadly secret - an object of extraordinary and devastating power. On this journey marked by danger, Will and Lyra forge ahead. But with every step and each new horror, they move closer to the greatest threat of all - and the shattering truth of their own destiny." Very thin line, very lightly printed across the bottom corner of page 316. Dust jacket has minor wrinkling at top of spine. . First American Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Near Fine.
