News: The Secret Commonwealth by Philip Pullman

Eee! There is finally an official release date for the second The Book of Dust book by Philip Pullman :D And oh my gosh. I'm SO excited. His Dark Materials is my most favorite trilogy. I loved La Belle Sauvage a whole lot too. And The Secret Commonwealth is going to be aaamazing. Probably going to ruin me as well, of course, but my gosh, I cannot wait. Lyra will be twenty years old in this book. And I am so beyond nervous. But so excited and soso happy and I need it in my life. The book will be out on October 3rd, this year :D EEE! No cover yet, but I am sure it will be gorgeous. Cannot wait to see it. I just. Gosh. I so worry about this book. Lyra will be twenty years old. Seven years since she and Will were parted. Does she still love him the same? Oh, she better, haha. <3 Will there be hints of them getting to be together again? Will she ruin the love by seeing someone else instead? Ahh. I'm a nervous wreck about it, lol. But so excited. And I know I will love this book. October cannot get here fast enough. Are you excited for this one too? :D

Return to the parallel world of His Dark Materials in the second volume of Philip Pullman's new bestselling masterwork The Book of Dust, and discover what comes next for Lyra, "one of fantasy's most indelible characters." (The New York Times Magazine)

Lyra Silvertongue's adventures in the North are long over--the windows between the many worlds have been sealed, and her beloved Will is lost to her. She does still have the alethiometer: the truth-telling device given to her by the master of Jordan College, which guided her journey.

Lyra doesn't know the full story of the alethiometer, though. Or the role that young Malcolm Polstead played in bringing both the instrument and baby Lyra to Jordan. She's now a twenty-year-old undergraduate at St. Sophia's College. To her, Malcolm is Dr. Polstead, an overly solicitous professor she would prefer to avoid.

But intrigue is swirling around Lyra once more. Her daemon Pantalaimon is witness to a brutal murder, and the dying man entrusts them with secrets that carry echoes from their past. They learn of a city haunted by daemons, of a desert said to hold the secret of Dust.

Powerful forces are about to throw Lyra and Malcolm together once again. And the dangers they face will challenge everything they thought they knew about the world, and about themselves.
