About the Book

The apocalyptic conclusion to the New York Times bestselling Abhorsen series—an epic fantasy experience not to be missed.

The Abhorsen Sabriel and King Touchstone are missing, leaving only Lirael—newly come into her inheritance as the Abhorsen-in-Waiting—to stop the Destroyer. If Orannis's unspeakable powers are unleashed, it will mean the end of all Life. With only a vision from the Clayr to guide her, and the help of her companions, Sam, the Disreputable Dog, and Mogget, Lirael must search in both Life and Death for some means to defeat the evil destructor—before it is too late. . . .

Educator and Librarian Resources

Critical Praise

“A riveting conclusion to a powerful fantasy.” —Locus

“Breathtaking, bittersweet, and utterly unforgettable.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“At once an allegory regarding war and peace and a testament to friendship, this is thought-provoking fantasy.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“A brilliant mix of subtlety and tension, darkness and light. Nix’s Old Kingdom is a world as fully realized as Narnia or Cittagazze.” —VOYA

“More than three hundred pages of breathless chases, near escapes, and intense confrontations. Nix’s intricately imagined fantasy world is peopled by complex players worthy of both their dramatic backdrops and their moral dilemmas.” —Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

Praise for Lirael: “Riveting.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“What makes Lirael a delight is the magic that Nix brings to his story and to his characters.” —Locus

“Startling subplots abound and keep the pages turning.” —Publishers Weekly

Praise for Sabriel: “Rich, complex, involving, hard to put down, this first novel is excellent high fantasy.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“The action charges along at a gallop-a page turner for sure.” —ALA Booklist (starred 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. I congratulate Garth Nix. And I look forward to reading his next piece of work.” —Philip Pullman
