I found The Subtle Kinfe to be an extraordinary read. The only problem was it that it finished, and started the third book of the trilogy which i found much more intense and sometimes difficult to understand. The Subtle Knife, in its self was absolutely fantastic, and it was a great way to introduce the character Will. However i did prefer Northern Lights but The Subtle Knife is still a great read, and the whole trilogy together are completely compatible with each other, to make this series one of the greatest ever.

The Subtle Knife, the sequel to The Golden Compass, is just as exhilarating as the first book, but with an added dose of suspense and an utterly riveting plot. This novel has a classic theme of good vs. evil throughout the story.
Phillip Pullman's creativity is expert and the main characters, Lyra, a sassy thirteen year old, and Will, a brave boy who desperately wants to protect his mother from all danger, team together on the journey of their life.

Peril. Will's lost His mother, Left her cat home, and he's killed someone. They are on the run, with limited help.
