For many years Sabriel has lived outside the walls of the Old Kingdom, away from the random power of Free Magic, and away from the Dead who won't stay dead. But now her father, the Mage Abhorsen, is missing, and to find him Sabriel must cross back into that treacherous world - and face the power of her own extraordinary destiny.This beautiful edition includes part of the original hand-written manuscript of Sabriel, an explanation by Garth Nix of his writing process, and a guide to the Necromancers' Bells. '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.' PHILIP PULLMAN'Passionately exciting, full of intriguing characters and stunning scenery, Sabriel is sheer enjoyment.' THE TIMES'Weaving horror and fantasy into a rich, original story ... a powerful, gripping quest.' THE AGEWinner of the Aurealis Award for Excellence in Australian Speculative Fiction

By far my favourite book.
Love the whole series!
An exiting, gripping tale that involves modern technology with an ancient kingdom on the brink of Death (literally). I think that, although the book was slow to start, and was repetitive in the first hundred pages, it did pick up midway and finished on a high.
