La Belle Sauvage by Philip Pullman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
PP does it again! This time, with the world of His Dark Materials as a starting point, La Belle Sauvage gives us a great page-turner as well as a deeper exploration of aforesaid world (e.g. the human-daemon relationship). The great character development is there, of course; and there are some surprises as the story reaches its climax. Bring on Book 2!
