Cover art for Sabriel


Written by Garth Nix

After graduating from school, Sabriel is ready for her next challenge. It comes sooner than expected when she receives a message delivered by the dead forcing Sabriel to cross the prohibited zone into the magical old kingdom. Sabriel isnít sure what is happening, all she knows is her father is in trouble and she must find him. After living in non-magical world of Ancelstierre, she might not be aware of the dangers facing her, even from the people or creatures claiming to help her. This book has a special place in my heart for being one of the first fantasy novels I read featuring a female main character. Not only that, Sabriel isnít an orphan and doesnít need the guidance of some older wizard to help her figure out what is going on. The characters, the setting, and the magic work together to make a book that is hard to put down.
