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 Mage Abhorson, is missing, and Sabriel must cross into that world to find him.

There she confronts an evil that threatens much more than her life'and comes face to face with her own hidden destiny. . . Garth Nix's first young adult novel, Sabriel was recently nominated for the Aurealis Award for Excellence in Science Fiction in Australia.

I read it a couple of times when I was a teenager but I haven’t read it for at least ten years, and let me t...
Sabriel, how I truly wanted to adore and praise you but alas, it wasn't meant to be. There were moments of awesome...Hello Mogget!!...alongside long stretches of...YAAWWNN...complete boredom....then there was Mogget again YAY! The hubby and I listened to this book and the narrator was quite good...e...
