    Philip Pullman's books tackle important, controversial and difficult subjects with style, wisdom and authority. The His Dark Materials trilogy is often heralded as a modern masterpiece and it's featured on this unabridged audio collection across three CDs. There are also four CDs featuring the unabridged books from the Sally Lockhart Quartet.

    The monumental His Dark Materials books introduce Lyra, an orphan who lives in a parallel universe where science, theology and magic are entwined. As she embarks on a search for a sinister plot that involves stolen children, she soon finds herself on a quest to understand a mysterious phenomenon called Dust...

    The Sally Lockhart Quartet opens with The Ruby in the Smoke, a book that finds Sally receiving an anonymous letter shortly after the death of her father at sea; the dire warning it contains makes a man die of fear at her feet... Sally decides to find out the truth about her father's death and finds herself plunged into a terrifying mystery in the heart of Victorian London - and it all seems to revolve around a deadly blood-soaked jewel.

    The His Dark Materials audiobooks are read by Philip Pullman and a full cast, while the Sally Lockhart Quartet is read by Anton Lesser.

Twelve-year-old Lyra, whose daemon Pantalaimon is part of her very self, is growing up in an ancient, ritual-haunted Oxford. She becomes involved in a quest to find her father and rescue her friend Roger from evil kidnappers, aided by armoured bears, Gyptians and a witch-queen. The second instalment, The Subtle Knife, introduces us to Will Parry - a young boy with a dangerous mission to fulfil. When he and Lyra cross paths, they decide to help each other, but the world of Cittagazze is a strange and unsettling place, where deadly soul-eating Spectres roam...The concluding instalment, The Amber Spyglass, brings the saga to a thrilling close. Lyra and Will are aided by friends old and new as they continue their perilous journey. As childhood slips away, they face further dangers - including a terrifying voyage to the world of the dead. Mixing science, theology and magic to fantastic and exciting effect, Pullman's gripping trilogy was an international bestseller, and these thrilling full-cast dramatisations bring Philip Pullman's masterpiece to vivid life. 6 CDs. 7 hrs 30 mins.
