    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.
