It isn’t overbearing, but it’s intricate and unique and dark without being grimdark. A Million More Pages: One thing bothers me about the world-building though. Sabriel introduced the world, the characters most of them , the magic system, and the stakes. I can finish a modern fantasy book I moderately like in one night, so when I say it took me weeks to read this book, you can see that something really went wrong here. As the Old Kingdom falls once more into a realm of darkness and terror, the people look desperately to the Abhorsen, the scourge of the Dead, to save them. I love everything about it!

Probably my favourite of the series so far! This is a series I would happily recommend to anyone who li This was a very satisfying end to an excellent series. Well, the Disreputable Dog can splash into Death, too and in “Abhorsen” you’ll find out who she really is, along with Mogget the bad-tempered cat who reminds me of some of the grouchier Jack Lemon characters.
Or Sabriel or Touchstone?
Abhorsen Series by Garth Nix
No moral dilemmas, no epiphanies, no character growth. I have really enjoyed the author’s world building which includes charter magic, travels into Death,the Wall and much more. I was a bit disappointed with Clariel but have my fingers crossed for Goldenhand. Then in book three, they state that it actually looks new and it wears the symbol of a Wallmaker.
Sabriel: The Abhorsen
Finally, we have a lot more action, a lot less moping and some solid character growth with two young protagonists, both who have vast potential stemming from their unique bloodlines. I am interested in reading Goldenhand to find out what happens to Lirael and Nicolas I just felt that this book and the previous one could have been shortened down to one big book instead of being dragged out over two when some of the plot and description was unnecessary.
Add to that one of the most interesting and original magic systems I have yet come across featuring among other things, free magic wild and unbound and charter magic bound magic expressed through runes or marksAbhorsens vs necromancers, lesser and greater dead, gore crows, the Great Charters and some amazingly unique free magic creatures and entities. Plenty of action, great world building.
The dramatic purpose of having an apocalpse is for the readers to fear for the end of the fictional world. Illuminae Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff. His most recent book, Frogkisser! Want to Read saving…. Even though I struggled a bit with the characters of Lirael and Sam initially, the development of their roles eventually made sense within the context of what they are becoming.
Sabriel was particularly Great review!
So says the song. You have to admire his willpower and intelligence though.

On paper, such a goofy trope furry sidekick who saves the day, pshaw! I congratulate Garth Nix. Slowly the pair come to discover what it is: Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. Only Lirael has any chance of stopping the Destroyer.
