What is "His Dark Materials" about?

His Dark Materials is set in a multi-world reality, with the action moving from one world to another. The story begins in an alternative world where all humans have animal companions called dæmons, which are manifestations of the human soul. The series follows the life of a young girl named Lyra (Dafne Keen) who is an orphan living with the scholars at Jordan College (Clarke Peters), Oxford. As in Pullman's novel, Lyra discovers a dangerous secret that involves Lord Asriel and Marisa Coulter (Ruth Wilson). In her search for a missing friend, Lyra also uncovers a series of kidnappings and its link to a mysterious substance called Dust, which leads her on a journey of epic proportions and will lead to her crossing paths with a boy named Will.
