The Amber Spyglass

4 ThrillsWhen Lyra was captured at the end of The Subtle Knife, it was unclear who was behind it. Not it becomes apparent who it was, but why did this person do it and what are their plans? During all this Will has managed to hang on to the knife and is able to cut between worlds, which is good since he intends to rescue Lyra. He is joined on his rescue mission by two creatures who want to take him to Lord Asriel. Will feels he needs to get Lyra free and give her back the alethiometer. Clues as to where Lyra is start trickling in, taking them to strange and unusual new worlds. While the search for Lyra goes on, the witches in the area become angry and it looks as if war is about to erupt. It turns out that Will is not the only one looking for Lyra. In fact, it seems as if everyone is looking for Lyra and not everyone wants to save her. Dust once again plays an important role in the book, with Mary trying to figure out things about it back at Oxford while Will and Lyra try to deal with it where they are. Can Will save Lyra before the others get to her? Can they figure out who is behind everything that has happened and stop that person? Can they fix the other worlds and return to their own home?
