Book 1, The Old Kingdom
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
Game of Thrones fans will love the New York Times bestselling Abhorsen series. Sabriel, the first installment in the trilogy, launched critically acclaimed author Garth Nix onto the fantasy scene as a rising star.
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 Abhorson, is missing, and Sabriel must cross into that world to find him. 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. . . .

It makes me quite happy to see all the other glowing reviews here for this amazing book. Each of them is warranted, because this book is that rare book that is so compelling and well-written that you can't put it down, the first read-through or the fifth. I would give it six stars if I could.
A childhood favorite
An amazing childhood memory I've recently revisited as I read chapters to my wife before we go to bed. Every bit as poignant and engaging as it was in my childhood, Sabriel is a rare treat in a genre that no longer respects it's young readers with mature themes or complex characters.
An amazing book
The book was so well written that that you can not willingly put it down.
