Once I had started I couldn't stop. All of the criticism of folkloric creatures that was made about volume one is, as you would expect from the title, dealt with and the rich creation that Pullman is building is unfolding more and more.
The Secret Commonwealth is an fascinating journey filled with mystery, passion, unforgettable situations, and real-world significance.
The Secret Commonwealth continues Lyra's story, many years after the conclusion of His Dark Materials, with a young woman adrift from her deamon and starting to understand who she really is in the world. It's a story about acceptance, challenging the rules left by the old, and self discovery.
