Cowboys and armored bears

Oh how I'd missed Pullman's world of damon's and armored bears!  Once Upon a Time in the North, the little prequel to the His Dark Materials series has sat on my to-read list for ages, but I finally picked it up and read it in a day.  It's a short tale following Lee Scoresby & Iorek Byrnison, two wonderful characters who play a part in the trilogy.  Now I need to pick up the short little book that's timed after the trilogy - Lyra's Oxford.  7/10.

And if you haven't read His Dark Materials yet, DO!  It's such an imaginative and wonderful story.  So so good!

  1. I'm rereading His Dark Materials right now and I didn't know this existed! Perfect timing.
