5.0 out of 5 stars An absolutely absorbing book, 6 Mar 2003
This review is from: Sabriel (Hardcover)
I absolutely adored Sabriel and there aren't that many books that I would rate this highly. I truly believe that this was a book of pure genius and took an extremely creative mind to write. The story tells of a girl named Sabriel who lives on the border of a land called Ancelstierre. Across the border is the Old Kingdom where modern technology ceases to wor and where she, herself was born and raised until she was sent away because the land was becoming too dangerous.
Sabriel finds herself going into the Old Kingdom as her father disappears and she fears the worst. In the Old Kingdom she must face terrifying foes - and they are properly scary, which is very rare in books! The way the author builds suspense in this part is unnervingly clever.
I would suggest this book to most people unless you are against matters of necromancy. Personally I am against these things, as a Christian, but if you realise that it is just a story then I found I recovered from it soon enough when I found how realistic Nix had made the Old Kingdom and how thrilling the story-line was.
Please read this book - you'll be hooked until the end and, like me, will wait in anticipation for the sequel.
