I just finished this series and loved it. The main character is a 12-year-old girl named Lyra. She gets captured and they try to cut her daemon away (her daemon is a part of her and she might die if they get cut apart). In the end her father rebells and tries to destroy God.

This is the series by Phillip Pullman, yes? (Is this the one with the Subtle Knife etc., or is this the other one?)
I've been wanting to read this for a while; maybe now that I've actually got another recommendation, I'll get around to it... How's his writing? Good, bad, in between...?
The Weaver works in many ways, not all of them for the good... She binds in Silver and hunts in Black; She works in Sorrow and fights for Joy. She weaves the Dreams and draws Illusions; She heals the Mind and shattered Shells. Her mind is cunning, Her fingers quick, but never may you trust Her, for She works for neither Dark nor Light.
