A beguiling new episode from the universe of His Dark Materials.
Lyra's Oxford opens two years after the conclusion of Philip Pullman's The Amber Spyglass in the comfort and familiarity of Jordan College, where Lyra and her daemon, Pantalaimon, sit on the sun-drenched roof looking out over all of Oxford. But their peace is shattered when a strange bird - a witch's daemon, on it's own - tumbles out of the sky, in search of a healing elixer to cure his witch of a strange new disease. Lyra and Pan decided to help - witches are friends, of course - but the closer their winding walk leads them towards the infamous Oxford alchemist, the stronger Lyra's sense that something is amiss.

Lyra's Oxford takes place 2 years after the events in His Dark Materials. After saving a daemon belonging to a witch from being attacked by birds, Lyra is tasked by the witch's daemon to find a crazy old alchemist who can save her. Little does Lyra realise that their is more to the story. A great little addition to His Dark Materials and a good quick read.
Sehr kurze (unvollständig)Geschichte
Very short story, or better story opening, as it seems.
Though it is a nice opening with the awesome storytelling of Philip Pullman, it is, for this length AND without the following storyline, not worth the money / 1 credit audible charges you.
As long as you have better ways to spend it, don't buy it.
