In Amber Spyglass it is mentioned that the spectres dont attack Mary. Do we ever learn why this is?

  • The angels or the dust protects her. – Bellerophon Feb 14 '16 at 21:24

When Mary is communicating with the Angels using her modified equipment she is told:

Take provisions for a long journey. You will be protected. The Spectres will not touch you.

As far as I can recall we are not told any more than this.

  • I've always assumed the angels protect her. We see angles fight spectres in the Amber Spyglass so evidently they can and will. – Bellerophon Feb 14 '16 at 21:26
  • @Sam - I agree, that seems the most likely reason. – Keith Miller Feb 16 '16 at 7:32
