The Golden Compass (His Dark Materials, #1)
Lyra rushes to the cold and far north, where witch clans and armored bears rule. North, where the Gobblers take the children they steal, including their friend Roger. North, where his fearsome uncle Asriel is trying to build a bridge to a parallel world.
Can a little girl make a difference in such great and terrible efforts? This is Lyra: a savage, an intriguing, a liar and a champion as fierce and true as Roger or Asriel might wish, but what Lyra doesn’t know is that helping one of them will be betraying the other.
Within this book – The Golden Compass PDF Book by Philip Pullman – Master, ”said Lord Asriel. “Yes, I am back. Bring your guests; I have something very interesting to show you.” “Lord Asriel,” said the Master heavily, and stepped forward to shake hands. From their hiding place, Lyra looked at the Master’s eyes and, in fact, moved to the table for a second, where the Tokay had been. “Master,” said Lord Asriel. “I was too late to disturb your dinner, so I felt at home here. Hi Sub Rector. Glad to see you so well. Sorry for my rude appearance; I just landed. Yes, Master, the Tokay is gone. I think you stand there. The doorman threw him off the table, but it was my fault. Hello, chaplain, I read your last article with great interest. He walked away with the Chaplain, leaving Lyra with a clear view of the Master’s face. He was impassive, but the demon on his shoulder dragged the feathers and moved restlessly from one foot to another. Lord Asriel already dominated the room, and although he was careful to be courteous to the Master in the Master’s territory, it was clear where the power was. The scholars greeted the visitor and entered the room, some sitting around the table, others in the armchairs, and soon a buzzing conversation filled the air. Lyra could see that they were intrigued by the wooden box, the screen, and the flashlight. She knew the scholars well: the librarian, the deputy rector, the researcher and the rest; They were men who had surrounded her all her life, taught her, punished her, comforted her, gave her small gifts and drove her away from the fruit trees in the garden. They were everything she had for a family. They might even have felt like a family if they knew what a family is, although if they knew, they would have been more likely to feel that for the servants of the university. Scholars had more important things to do than attend to the affection of a half-wild and half-civilized girl, abandoned among them by chance.
