The Golden Compass

Took awhile to get into the story, but the action is fast & furious. Lyra an 11 year old girl who escapes the confines of her imprisonment and goes on a journey to the northern lands involving combat with polar bears, witches, gyptians, Dust, daemons, and more. Simplistic writing, but an enjoyable tale.
