The fate of the universe is in their hands.Young Lyra Belacqua is a precocious orphan growing up within the precincts of Oxford University. Lyra's Oxford is not precisely like others' Oxford—nor is her world. Her parallel universe, is a world in which science, theology, and magic intricately intermingle.

I had delayed writing reviews of the books, but after finishing The Amber Spyglass last night, I shall delay no more. The titular Golden Compass - or alethiometer - is a device which Lyr...
