His Dark Materials: Serpentine
Serpentine is a sequel to Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials, featuring Lyra and her daemon, Pantalaimon (Pan for short). In this book, Lyra is desperate to speak with the consul of witches.
During their previous adventures, it was necessary for Lyra and Pan to separate. This may not seem like a big deal, but for most duos, a human separating from her daemon is all but impossible. They are practically the same being. Neither one knew what was happening with the other during their time apart. It becomes an elephant in the room, and Lyra does not know how to talk about it with Pan, or even if she should.
When secrets threaten to divide them, who can Lyra turn to for advice? Will this gulf always be between Lyra and Pan? Or will they find their way back to each other and reclaim the special relationship that exists between all humans and their daemons?
This story was interesting to read, but difficult if you have not already read His Dark Materials. I loved reading about Lyra and Pan, and found myself cheering for their relationship to work out.
