Sent to a boarding school in Ancelstierre as a young child, Sabriel has had little experience with the random power of Free Magic or the Dead who refuse to stay dead in the Old Kingdom. But during her final semester, her father, the Abhorsen, goes missing, and Sabriel knows she must enter the Old Kingdom to find him. She soon finds companions in Mogget, a cat whose aloof manner barely conceals its malevolent spirit, and Touchstone, a young Charter Mage long imprisoned by magic, now free in body but still trapped by painful memories. As the three travel deep into the Old Kingdom, threats mount on all sides. And every step brings them closer to a battle that will pit them against the true forces of life and death -- and bring Sabriel face-to-face with her own hidden destiny. With Sabriel, the first installment in the Abhorsen trilogy, Garth Nix exploded onto the fantasy scene as a rising star, in a novel that takes readers to a world where the line between the living and the dead isn't always clear -- and sometimes disappears altogether.

5.0 The Old Kingdom Trilogy by Garth Nix
This seriously was and still is my favorite young adult fantasy trilogy! I have read it several times. I loved everything about this series, however, I wish each book was a trilogy that focused on the main character, like I would have loved more stories from Sabriel and Lirael. Companion novels are ...

4.0 Sabriel
My younger son reads a lot of SF & Fantasy. Ever since he polished off the Ranger’s Apprentice series in 3rd grade, we’ve had multiple librarians recommend Sabriel by Garth Nix as something he might like. But despite multiple exposures, he’s never been interested and it never quite made it to the ...

4.0 Sabriel
I went into this book knowing pretty much nothing at all about it. It was recommended by a good friend who generally has good (i.e., similar to mine :D) tastes, so I felt good about picking it up! Funny enough, outside of Lord of the Rings, it's the oldest fantasy I've read. Which, I know I know, is...

4.0 Sabriel
Surprisingly, excellent... like, actually feminist. Sabriel is a recent graduate that gradually comes into her own, growing into power, confidence and authority over the course of this first book. The romantic element is handled pretty gracefully, too, and the world and magical underpinnings are com...

4.0 Life, death, betrayal...and also a cat
A book about Necromancy! Coooool. Garth Nix is one of those well known teen fantasy authors I'm just getting around to reading now. When you have a tight budget and books are expensive, you pick up whatever is cheap and has been on your 'I'll get to it' pile for a while. Enter a used copy of Sabriel...
