Book Info

Published on April 1, 1985
Age Group: 12 - 17 years

Summary:
In the magical world of Lyra, a mysterious instrument gives a minstrel undreamed-of power. When Emereck and Flindaran leave a caravan in search of adventure, it isn't long before they stumble upon great danger. Emereck, a trained minstrel, and Flindaran, a nobleman masquerading as a tramp, have found a long-abandoned castle, and in it, one of Lyra's most sought-after treasures: the Harp of Imach Thyssel. Emereck recognizes the perfect white bow from legend: It is said to possess the power of life and death over all mankind. Now, to keep it from falling into the wrong hands, he'll have to learn to harness its strength to create and destroy, with the fate of the kingdom hanging in the balance.

Excerpt/First Sentence(s):
Dark, still reflected darker trees and a shadowed sky. As he rode along the lake, Emereck studied the scene, wondering whether he could capture it in words. It would make a good opening for a tragic song, and he'd been thinking of doing a new arrangement of "Corryn's Ride." He hummed the first line of music and paused to fit words around it.
Dark water, still water, darker yet the sky...
