Description-

  • A tale of dark secrets, deep love, and dangerous magic!
    Since childhood, Sabriel has lived outside the walls of the Old Kingdom, away from the random power of Free Magic, and away from the Dead who refuse to stay dead. But now her father, the Charter-Mage Abhorsen, is missing, and to find him Sabriel must cross back into that world. With Mogget, whose feline form hides a powerful, perhaps malevolent spirit, and Touchstone, a young Charter Mage, Sabriel travels deep into the Old Kingdom. There she confronts an evil that threatens much more than her life—and comes face-to-face with her own hidden destiny.

About the Author-

  • Garth Nix was born in 1963 and grew up in Canberra, Australia. He has worked in the publishing industry and currently lives in Sydney, where he is both a marketing communications consultant and a writer. Sabriel is his first novel for young adults. It is the first of a trilogy.

Reviews-

  • AudioFile Magazine Harry Potter fans will likely be drawn to Garth Nix's fantasy, with its magical incantations and young protagonist. In fact, SABRIEL is more evocative of Tolkien's RINGS trilogy--it's an epic journey in a world as richly realized as Middle-earth and much darker and bloodier than Harry's trials at Hogwarts. Unlike THE LORD OF THE RINGS, a young woman's voyage of self-discovery is at the heart of the story. Tim Curry brings authority to the reading, grounding the fantastic elements with nuance of character and depth of emotion, particularly in his portrayal of the eponymous heroine, Sabriel, a magic-wielding necromancer. But he also gets the chance to show off some vocal acrobatics, as when he purrs and growls his way through the mysterious cat-guide, Mogget's, dialogue. As the breathless adventure comes to a close, listeners can rejoice in being able to continue the series with LIRAEL and ABHORSEN. J.M.D. 2003 YALSA Selection (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine
