Her mother, a soldier, died suddenly in the line of duty there, leaving behind the beautiful Raven Ring -- an ancient family heirloom that is much, much more than it seems.

Retrieving her mother's ring is a simple matter -- but getting it home again will prove no easy task. For there are dark forces at work in Lyra....

    This is my favorite of all the Wrede books I have (most if not all of them). It is amazingly multi-faceted for a fantasy novel - not a genre which is known for complexity of style! In addition to the ...
