Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Abhorsen Sabriel and King Touchstone are missing, leaving only Lirael — newly come into her inheritance as the Abhorsen-in-Waiting — to stop the Destroyer. If Orannis's unspeakable powers are unleashed, it will mean the end of all Life. With only a vision from the Clayr to guide her and the help of her companions, Sam, the Disreputable Dog, and Mogget, Lirael must search in both Life and Death for some means to defeat the evil destructor — before it is too late...

The apocalyptic conclusion to the series of events that began with Sabriel and continued in Lirael, the New York Times bestselling Abhorsen is an electrifying reading experience not to be missed.

Review:

"Nix brings his trilogy to a literally earth-shattering conclusion....This one is breathtaking, bittersweet, and utterly unforgettable." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"[A] riveting continuation....[T]his thought-provoking fantasy...suggests that Nix may still have more tricks up his sleeve." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"The tension throughout the story is palatable, and despite a solid, satisfying conclusion, Nix leaves himself a bit of room to revisit his intricately designed universe..." Booklist

Review:

"Abhorsen will delight Nix's dedicated fans. Similar to Tamora Pierce's engaging heroines, this fantasy novel provides readers with a...strong, quick-thinking, compassionate young woman who triumphs against seemingly impossible odds." Children's Literature

Review:

"Abhorsen is an excellent denouement for a fantasy that is both literary and popularly accessible." School Library Journal

Review:

"[A] brilliant mix of subtlety and tension, darkness and light. Cliff-hanging action combines with Gothic gloom, occasionally leavened by flashes of wit....[P]eopled by strong and believable human and nonhuman characters." VOYA

Synopsis:

Now available in paperback — the New York Times bestselling conclusion to the Abhorsen trilogy. Lirael, now revealed to be Abhorsen-in-Waiting, realizes that she and her three companions are all that stand between an ancient horror and the world.
