The world Garth Nix creates is truly original and enthralling

Only 19 left in stock (more on the way). The world Garth Nix creates is truly original and enthralling. I loved the build-up from 'Sabriel' to 'Lirael' to the climax of 'Abhorsen', in which the Charter mages attempt to bind and break, Orannis, the Destroyer; who plans to kill all Life and rule over a kingdom of the Dead. To do this, Lirael must enter the river of Death and there use the bells and the sword Nahima at great risk to herself.

This Old Kingdom trilogy has to be one of the best Fantasy series I have read. The world Garth Nix creates is truly original and enthralling. I loved the build-up from 'Sabriel' to 'Lirael' to the climax of 'Abhorsen', in which the Charter mages attempt to bind and break, Orannis, the Destroyer; who plans to kill all Life and rule over a kingdom of the Dead. To do this, Lirael must enter the river of Death and there use the bells and the sword Nahima at great risk to herself. Unlike some readers, I always felt that Lirael was the strongest and most interesting character in the series. In 'Abhorsen' she fully grows into her role as the Abhorsen-in-waiting, when together with the help of her faithful Dog she finds the courage to face Death.
I found the descriptions of the Nine Gates in the darkly misted river of Death as fascinating as the clear, icy beauty of the Clayr Glacier in the previous book. The author's descriptive prose is magical. His characters are also captivating, both human and creatures. I loved both Mogget, the cynical cat, and the loyal Disreputable Dog.
Without giving anything away, I found the conclusion unexpected, and satisfying; even though it brought a tearful reaction.
Wonderful world-building. Engrossing storyline.

I picked up the Kindle edition of Garth Nix's Sabriel to fulfill a "Dark Fantasy" requirement of a reading challenge. I believe it did fulfill that role, technically, although it didn't feel that "dark" to me.

I'm not a believer in plot summaries full of spoilers in reviews, so I'll try to avoid too much of that. Sabriel does deal with necromancy and the dead quite a bit, which is why I believe it falls into the Dark Fantasy subgenre. That being said, the overall tone of the book is not dark although the heroine does face constant difficulties and challenges.

I would note this book is sort of in a crossover area of YA and Adult Fantasy. The heroine has just graduated from school and is fairly immediately pulled into a "fate of the world" type situation. Also, although there is a hint of romance in the plot, it's extremely minor and there is nothing explicit to the romance at all. With these two factors in mind, I see why it's often considered YA, but I would not let that stop you from reading it even if you generally avoid YA books.

I like that the magic system and universe is unique. The necromancy in this book is well fleshed out and is more focused on putting the dead to rest or keeping them dead rather than raising the dead. The necromancy is only one facet of the magic system, with at least two other fairly interesting magic systems at work (Charter and Free), as well as some nifty magical constructs. The cast of characters is fairly small but the characters that do appear are interesting and well developed.

Overall I really enjoyed this read and look forward to reading the sequels. I do think that if I'd first read this when I was younger I would have absolutely adored it. As an adult I still liked it quite a bit! It looks like there are also many other short stories, novellas, and novels set in the same universe (The Old Kingdom/Ancelstierre).

I randomly picked up this book at a used bookstore, it was missing both front and back cover. Only thing I was able to see was the name: Sabriel. I had no idea what the book was about or even what kind of book it was. Thankfully I was bored out of my mind, and something about reading a book I had no idea what was seemed like a small adventure. Haha, but enough about that. I'm so glad that I gave this book a chance. Sweet, fun and very interesting. Admittedly it is a book for young adults, but still it gave me enormous pleasure. The world is so interesting and well put together, the dead that refuse to stay dead is actually quite scary. Magic system is very intriguing as well. It is also interesting with some of the characters that are good, but at the same time you feel like you cant count on them to stay so. This gives the book a extra layer in my opinion. I read all the books in this series, I must admit that Sabriel was the one that struck a cord with me the most, but all the books are truly enjoyable and you should definitely give it a go. Thumbs up! :)

*Original review on Goodreads & My Blog*

Re/read on audio. Tim Curry rocks the narration ????????

*** "Yes," said Abhorsen. "I am a necromancer, but not of the common kind. where others of the art raise the dead, I lay them back to rest. And those that will not rest, I bind-or try to. I am Abhorsen . . ."

He looked at the baby again, and added, almost with a note of surprise, "Father of Sabriel." ***

Oh, what a wonderful little book. I loved Sabriel so much. She was so tough and just got things done.

She received a message from her father and she knew things were not right. She wasn't sure if he was dying or what was happening at first. She received his sword and other things through a messenger. She was to be the next Abhorsen of sorts.

This message takes Sabriel on a journey to find her father and find and kill the evil that is happening across the land. It's a bit creepy at parts which is good =)

She has a sidekick named Mogget that she picks up at her fathers house. He's a cat and he talks and he is really something different. And he is also bound from being free.

Then they pick up one more person that Mogget names Touchstone and he was a guard to the Queen. There's a big story there but you can read it yourself.

They go on a journey to get away from the evil that is trying to kill Sabriel while trying to set things right. Sabriel has powers herself but she can only do so much.

The end of the story was pretty amaze balls. I look forward to the rest of the books =)

Happy Reading!
