Publisher's Summary

Another mesmerizing episode from the universe of His Dark Materials set in the far frozen Arctic, including the very first meeting of those two legends and friends - Lee Scoresby, the Texan balloonist, and Iorek Byrnison, the armored bear.

Great Fun

This was a fun "origin" type story for Yorik and Leif, great background and I enjoyed spending more time with two of my favorite characters.
