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.

    Took a little while to get into this world, but worth it. Good Characters, I really liked this whole series of books - dark, but intriguing!

    Comment on this review

    'Sabriel is a winner, a fantasy that reads like realism. Here is a world with the same solidity and four-dimensional authority as our own, created with invention, clarity and intelligence.' - Philip Pullman
