Northern lights is a book from the ‘His Dark Materials’ series.  Lyra, a girl from Jordan College, Oxford lives wild and carefree with her friends, she is sent to live with a physician who at first seems nice but doesn’t seem to turn out that way.

Follow Lyra as she escapes from evil Mrs Coulter, is saved by the Egyptians, meets Lorek Byrnison and saves the children of Oxford from an awful experiment.

This is an adventure book that I would recommend to anyone who enjoys fantasy and adventure.
