“[Garth Nix is] the coolest read in the playground.” Amanda Craig
"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 intellience." Philip Pullman
“I think Garth Nix has created a really remarkable and persuasive wold, and done it in the grand style of high fantasy and heroic romance, with some wonderful twists and turns. His Sabriel is a heroine truly worthy of that role.” Lloyd Alexander
“Rich, complex, involving, hard to put down, this first novel is excellent high fantasy.” Publishers Weekly
“By turns rousing, charming and slyly funny, Sabriel is an engaging tale that slays sexual stereotypes along with its monsters.” San Francisco Chronicle
“The action charges along at a gallop. A page turner for sure.” ALA Booklist
“Readers who like their fantasy intense in action, magisterial in scope and apocalyptic in consequences will revel in every word.” Kirkus starred review
“What makes LIRAEL a delight is the magic that Nix brings to his story and to his characters. It is filled with twists and turns, playful inventiveness and dark magic, and is sure to satisfy his many readers.” Locus
“At once an allegory regarding war and peace and a testament to friendship, this thought-provoking fantasy also resolves the true identities of the popular Dog and Mogget characters-and suggests that Nix may still have more tricks up his sleeve.” Publishers Weekly
“Fans will be overjoyed.” School Library JournalReseña del editor:
Venture into the magical landscape of the Old Kingdom for three spellbinding tales of discovery, destiny and danger. This stunning boxed set contains Garth Nix’s bestselling Sabriel, Lirael and Abhorsen.
A young girl discovers her destiny is to take on the duties of the Abhorsen and protect the living from Free Magic and the clutches of the Dead.
As an ancient evil casts its shadow and threatens to break the very boundary between Life and Death, Lirael is forced from her position as Second Assistant Librarian to confront the power that is rising.
The Destroyer is awake and summoning forces more powerful than any before. Can Lirael – newly appointed Abhorsen-in-Waiting – and her small team hope to find the clue that will lead to the downfall of this mighty force? And if so, can they defeat it and save the Old Kingdom from this ultimate evil?
