His Dark Materials

The Abyss[1] was a void between worlds, opened by the Magisterium's efforts to kill Lyra. Dust was continually drawn into the Abyss. When Lyra Silvertongue and Will Parry were freeing the ghosts from the land of the dead, they lead the dead across a ledge above the Abyss. Metatron was detained by Lord Asriel and Marisa Coulter as they fell to their deaths in the Abyss. The Abyss was seemingly inescapable from, as even Dust could not exit from it.
