Exciting. The first novel in Philip Pullman's The Book of Dust trilogy is titled, La Belle Sauvage. Packed with action from the first pages, fans of Pullman will enjoy eleven-year-old protagonist Malcolm and his competent and exciting care for Lara, the child of Asriel. Pullman fans will be pleased to learn that daemons are back, and the lines between good and evil are drawn very clearly. The adventure in this first novel proceeds at a rapid pace and lays a groundwork for the rest of the trilogy. I was thoroughly entertained from beginning to end.
Rating: Five-star (I love it)
