New YA edition of the first book in the best-selling Old Kingdom trilogy. This compelling high fantasy is a passionately exciting tale of a young heroine who must do battle in the realm of Death itself to defeat a powerful enemy.
For many years Sabriel has lived outside the walls of the Old Kingdom, away from the random power of Free Magic, and away from the Dead who won't stay dead. But now her father, the Mage Abhorsen, is missing, and to find him Sabriel must cross back into that treacherous world - and face the power of her own extraordinary destiny.
This beautiful edition includes part of the original hand-written manuscript of Sabriel, an explanation by Garth Nix of his writing process, and a guide to the Necromancers' Bells.
