Northern Lights introduces Lyra, an orphan, who lives in a parallel universe in which science, theology and magic are entwined. Lyra's search for a kidnapped friend uncovers a sinister plot involving stolen children, and turns into a quest to understand a mysterious phenomenon called Dust. In The Subtle Knife she is joined on her journey by Will, a boy who possesses a knife that can cut windows between worlds. As Lyra learns the truth about her parents and her prophesied destiny, the two young people are caught up in a war against celestial powers that ranges across many worlds and leads to a thrilling conclusion in The Amber Spyglass.

In Philip Pullman's writings, Dust or Rusakov Particles are elementary particles associated with consciousness that are integral to the plot. Dust features in the multiverse written about in His Dark Materials and The Book of Dust. Because Dust is attracted to consciousness, especially after maturation, the Church within the series associates it with original sin and seeks its end. Pullman described Dust in a 2017 interview as “an analogy of consciousness, and consciousness is this extraordinary property we have as human beings”.
