Review:
The third in the fantasy trilogy by Philip Pullman is as intense and heartstopping as the first two. Child characters are embroiled in battles between the forces of good and evil on which the destiny of the cosmos depends.

Pullman involves his vulnerable but courageous young characters in wars over which angels clash. Theological ideas are turned upside down as the author’s imagination takes readers into fresh suppositions about the nature of religion, love, friendship, death. A complex, fitting end to Pullman’s large-visioned work.
