Philip Pullman is returning to the world of His Dark Materials with The Book of Dust, a three-part companion series to the original trilogy that takes place both before and after Lyra’s original tale. The first book, La Belle Sauvage, is out next month.

The series has nabbed popular British actor Michael Sheen (Twilight, Underworld) to narrate the audiobook, Underlined announced recently.

“Rarely have I felt such loss on coming to the end of a story. So, as a reader and a fan, I was hugely excited on hearing that Philip was returning to the story of Lyra and Dust and challenging the Authority,” Sheen told EW. “It was genuinely one of the most thrilling and enjoyable experiences I’ve had as a performer to sit in that darkened recording studio for three magical days and live inside the story of Malcolm and Lyra and their extraordinary journey.”

Eleven-year-old Malcolm Polstead and his dæmon, Asta, live with his parents at the Trout Inn near Oxford. Across the River Thames (which Malcolm navigates often using his beloved canoe, a boat by the name of La Belle Sauvage) is the Godstow Priory where the nuns live. Malcolm learns they have a guest with them, a baby by the name of Lyra Belacqua . . .
