A story in the Arctic from the world of His Dark Materials and The Book of Dust by master storyteller, Philip Pullman and read by Olivia Colman.

'Lyra Silvertongue, you're very welcome . . . Yes, I know your new name. Serafina Pekkala told me everything about your exploits'

In this snapshot of their forever-changed lives they return to the North to visit an old friend,
where we will learn that things are not exactly as they seem . . .
