Publisher's Summary

The award-winning His Dark Materials trilogy is a breathtaking epic adventure spanning a multitude of worlds. The second installment, The Subtle Knife, introduces Will Parry, a young boy in search of his long-lost explorer father.Will's discovery of an extraordinary 'window in the air' near the Oxford ring road leads him out of our world and into the strange and unsettling Cittagazze. There he meets Lyra, a girl who is herself searching for something: the secret of the mystical substance Dust. Moving back and forth through the portal, Will and Lyra join forces in their quest. As they make allies and enemies along the way, they also learn of the Subtle Knife. An object which many would kill to possess, the knife has incredible powers, and Will finds himself reluctantly in a fight for its possession.Ray Fearon, Emma Fielding, and Jack Klaff are amongst the cast in this gripping BBC Radio 4 dramatization.

The Subtle Knife (Dramatised)

Absolutely gripping and stretching your imagination beyond the realms of reality. At times the plot was a little far fetched and confusing, but it made you think different worlds. A big tip is to listen to the books in the correct order as I started Amber Glass before Subtle Knife and realised something was wrong! Brilliant book and excellent production very believable. Loved it loved it!!
