Fantasy-Geschichte im Universitätsstädtchen Oxford: Das kleine Büchlein ist in Leinen gebunden und mit hübschen Schwarzweiss-Drucken illustriert. Es stammt offenbar aus einer Trilogie mit Lyra Listenreichs Abenteuern und ihrem Kater Pantalaimon. Er ist ihr Daemon. Die Fantasy-Geschichte ist überhaupt voller Daemonen, Hexen und Alechemisten, was das friedliche Universitätsstädtchen Oxford von der Iffley Road bis hinüber zur Walton Well Road im Laufe der Erzählung zur schauerlichen Szenerie verzerrt. Eigentlich geht es Lyra dabei an den Kragen, aber die Schwäne retten sie vor dem Schlimmsten. So kann sie in Ruhe im College St. Sophias weiterstudieren. Die Story ist ein kleiner fantastischer Psychothriller mit jenem Quentchen englischen Humors, den nur Insider und Anglophile voll kapieren. Ab 12 Jahren, gut, Ruedi W. Schweizer.

Ein zauberhaftes Duo zum Verlieben Die 7-jährige Ella hat eine ganz normale Familie: chaotischer kleiner Bruder, Papa und Mama. Hm, na ja, Ellas Mama ist nicht gaaaanz so wie andere Mütter. Denn: sie ist eine wischwaschechte Fee! Und Ella - ist ihre kleine Junior-Fee. So eine Feen-Mama ist super praktisch, wenn mal morgens wieder keiner Milch besorgt hat, oder die extra pingelige Nachbarin spontan zum Tee vorbeikommt. Denn, Hokuspokus, zaubert Mami dann - eine Kuh in die Küche und fliegenden Muffinteig. Wie gut, dass Ella ihrer Mama zur Hand geht, die ist nämlich die Allerallerbeste auf der Welt und immer guter Laune - nur mit dem Zaubern, da hapert es manchmal ein bisschen.

Throughout the worlds, the forces of both heaven and hell are mustering to take part in Lord Asriel's audacious rebellion. Each player in this epic drama has a role to play—and a sacrifice to make. Witches, angels, spies, assassins, tempters, and pretenders, no one will remain unscathed. Lyra and Will have the most dangerous task of all. They must journey to a gray-lit world where no living soul has ever gone and from which there is no escape. As war rages and Dust drains from the sky, the fate of the living—and the dead—comes to depend on Lyra and Will. On the choices they make in love, and for love, forevermore.

I am completely enchanted." —The New York Times Book Review "Breathtaking adventure . . . a terrific story, eloquently told." —The Boston Globe

Ein Roman »mit einem ganz großen Herzen« Daily Express In einer regnerischen Freitagnacht wird Andrew Martin, Professor für Mathematik in Cambridge, aufgegriffen, als er nackt eine Autobahn entlangwandert. Professor Martin ist nicht mehr er selbst. Ein Wesen mit überlegener Intelligenz und von einem weit entfernten Stern hat von ihm Besitz ergriffen. Dieser neue Andrew ist nicht begeistert von seiner neuen Existenz. Er hat eine denkbar negative Meinung von den Menschen. Jeder weiß schließlich, dass sie zu Egoismus, übermäßigem Ehrgeiz und Gewalttätigkeit neigen. Doch andererseits: Kann eine Lebensform, die Dinge wie Weißwein und Erdnussbutter erfunden hat, wirklich grundschlecht und böse sein? Und was sind das für seltsame Gefühle, die ihn überkommen, wenn er Debussy hört oder Isobel, der Frau des Professors, in die Augen blickt?
