Publisher's Summary

Ever since she was a tiny child, 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 world.

Though her journey begins alone, she soon finds companions: Mogget, whose seemingly harmless feline form hides a powerful and perhaps malevolent spirit; and Touchstone, a young Charter Mage long imprisoned by magic, now free in body but still trapped by painful memories.

With threats on all sides and only each other to trust, the three must travel deep into the Old Kingdom, toward 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.

A tale of dark secrets, deep love and dangerous magic, Sabriel introduces Garth Nix as an exceptional new talent.

Don't miss books two and three of this trilogy! Lirael: Daughter of the Clayr and Abhorsen.

What the Critics Say

"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...Tim Curry brings authority to the reading, grounding the fantastic elements with nuance of character and depth of emotion. (AudioFile)
"Rich, complex, involving, hard to put down, this first novel...is excellent high fantasy." (Publishers Weekly)
"A page-turner for sure." (Booklist)

    "Still great, years later"

    This book was my "Twilight" as an angsty preteen, although it's a poor comparison; I may be biased, but I think that Nix writes with more substance than any of the vampire romances. My own dog-eared copy sits proudly on my shelf, and it was a nice listen during the traffic and commute of"adulting". Love Tim Curry as narrator. Was thrilled to find there are more Old Kingdom books- I thought it stopped at "Abhorsen"!

    "Favorite Audible Series"

    I've listened to the Abhorsen trilogy 4 or 5 times and I'v yet to get tired of it. The originality of the story and the excellent narration make these my all time favorite. Tim Curry is a really great narrator for these books in particular.

    "So worth it"
    Any additional comments?

    Great performance. Great flow, great story line, enough mystery. Its worth it. I hope the next book continues the good vibes the first has created.

    I love the Old Kingdom books and have read them all many, many times and I didn't think they could get any better. Then I found this. Tim Curry is so good.
