Oxford opens in the thrilling comfort and familiarity of Jordan
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 its own-tumbles out of the sky. It is Ragi,
daemon of Yelena Pazhets, and he seeks a healing elixir from an
infamous Oxford alchemist (and rumored man slaughterer) to cure his
witch of a strange new disease from the South. Lyra and Pan decide to
help and guide him-witches are friends, of course-but the closer their
winding walk leads them to the alchemist's house, the stronger Lyra's
sense that she's walking into a deadly trap.
