The Subtle Knife Illustrated Edition

Philip Pullman, illustrated by Chris Wormell


“What is he? A friend, or an enemy?” “He is a murderer.”

Will has just killed a man. He’s on the run. His escape will take him far beyond his own world, to the eerie disquiet of a deserted city, and to a girl, Lyra. Her fate is strangely linked to his own, and together they must find the most powerful weapon in all the worlds…
