5.0 out of 5 stars Over The Wall and Far Away...., 18 Aug. 2009
This review is from: The Abhorsen Chronicles: Sabriel/Lirael/Abhorsen (Abhorsen Trilogy) (Paperback)
Nix has created a wonderful world that really comes to life and I have read them all three times now! Very easy to read but very hard to put down! Wish he would continue this fantastic series.

Book one Sabrial. A young schoolgirl embarks on an adventure thru the olde kingdom in an attempt to find her father the abhorsen (keeps the dead dead with his magical bells ) who has gone missing leaving his necromancer bells with her. Thus starts quest to find out what happened to him and how to deal with the ever rising number of dead things.

Lirael- set 14 years after Sabriel. Lirael is a lonely girl who lives with a clan who have visions. Lireal doesn't seem to have the sight and feels an outcast. She ends up taking a librarians post in the castle and this leads to all sorts of adventures

`"There's so much to see and smell here! Whole levels of the library that no one has been into for a hundred, a thousand years! Locked rooms full of ancient secrets. Treasure! Knowledge! Fun!'

She soon gets embroiled in the abhorsens business and must help Sabriels teenage son who has ended up with his mothers bells but also a fear of the dead!

Abhorson is the third and final book and ties up where book 2 ended. Much bloodier-this some seemed tailored for an older audience. Lirael is now the abhorsen in waiting and must aid her new friends in defeating Orannis a creature that has been chained up for a millennia and is trying his hardest to break free and destroy he world.
