Sabriel (Mass Market Paperbound)
Everyone's favorite teenage necromancer! Along with being a classic in young adult fantasy, this book is also groundbreaking for its treatment of such dark content--death, necromancy, and the like--without falling into a pit of angst. Sabriel is a determined, competent, well-rounded hero--the kind you would want along on an adventure to keep you from dying.— From Ann's Picks
Game of Thrones fans will love the New York Times bestselling Abhorsen series. Sabriel, the first installment in the trilogy, launched critically acclaimed author Garth Nix onto the fantasy scene as a rising star.
Since childhood, Sabriel has lived outside the walls of the Old Kingdom, away from the power of Free Magic, and away from the Dead who refuse to stay dead. But now her father, the Abhorson, is missing, and Sabriel must cross into that world to find him. With Mogget, whose feline form hides a powerful, perhaps malevolent spirit, and Touchstone, a young Charter Mage, Sabriel travels deep into the Old Kingdom. There she confronts an evil that threatens much more than her life and comes face-to-face with her own hidden destiny. . . .
