Very good YA fantasy The adventures of Sabriel an innocent young woman and her run ins with various types of dead undead once dead sorta dead and should be dead people and creatures Luckily for almost everyone concerned except the forces of evil and the dead ones they control Sabriel is by heritage and training a necromancer with a fair amount of power over death Unluckily some of these once dead and should be dead creatures have apparently killed Sabriel's father the necromancer in chief or Abhorsen and are in the process of taking over the kingdom It's up to Sabriel and her companions a talking cat with mysterious powers and a once sorta dead for 200 years guy to try to turn things aroundThis is a well written and enjoyable fantasy occasionally a little on the grim and gruesome side but still within the bounds of what I'd consider YA appropriate at least for teens who aren't too sensitive Garth Nix creates an intriguing and imaginative fantasy world This is also the first book in a series but it doesn't leave you hanging off the edge of the virtual cliff It works uite well as a stand alone read I haven't gotten around to reading the rest of the series but they're on my probably sometime mental listContent notes Freuent battles with deadly creatures who sometimes resemble zombies Some good characters die The sexual content is very mild but there's a scene where a character overhears lovemaking in the next room and a somewhat ahem detailed description of a naked statueview spoiler who turns into an actual naked man but that doesn't lead where you might be pardoned for thinking hide spoiler

Sent to a boarding school in Ancelstierre as a young child Sabriel has had little experience with the random power of Free Magic or the Dead who refuse to stay dead in the Old Kingdom But du. 35 stars Death and what came after death was no great mystery to Sabriel She just wished it was Sabriel and her father have a very uniue brand of magic They can communicate with the dead and the damned from the Old KingdomOnly they can confront such creatures and send them back to the gates of deathThen during the first semester of Sabriel's school her father the Abhorsen goes missing and Sabriel is unwittingly promoted to the Abhorson Does the walker choose the path or the path the walker With the dead creeping ever closer to her friends and countrymen Sabriel must go to find her father before it's too late and he transverses through one gate of death too many Do not tarry do not stop no matter what happens I've heard so many wonderful things about this onethat IwelllI expected a little bit I just never felt a connection to this book the magic the characters the plot all meh to meThis book relies heavily on Charter Magic which from what I can tell involves speaking certain words and following strict rules that are never fully explained to the audienceThe most frustrating part is that there's no build to the magic it's just there It's kind of like if you jumped into the seventh Harry Potter book without the first few novels of magical background it was frustratingly complexThe other thing that really bugged me was the love interest Sabriel and the love interest were essentially acuaintances or perhaps pals if you want to stretch it but all of a sudden before the big battle THIS happens I love you he whispered I hope you don't mind And I'm just sitting there like what When did this happen Between the magic mayhem and the bland to non existent love I never formed an emotional connection to any of the main characters or the plot other than Mogget Mogget was the shining star in the clouded nightIt felt like I was being dragged on a journey rather than eagerly plunging into a new series Maybe I'll feel connected in book 2 Anyone else feel the sameAudiobook CommentsRead by Tim Curry and honestly this audio did the book NO favors It was SO frustrating to have all these really cool concepts and absolutely NO excitement from the narrator No tone No characterization other than MoggetYouTube | Blog | Instagram | Twitter | Snapchat mirandareads Happy Reading

Characters Sabriel Author Garth Nix

Sabriel Author Garth NExploded onto the fantasy scene as a rising star in a novel that takes readers to a world where the line between the living and the dead isn't always clear and sometimes disappears altogethe. “Then Sabriel hears it the massed grinding of Dead joints no longer joined by gristle; the padding of Dead feet bones like hobtails clicking through necrotic flesh” Now I’ll admit a book involving the dead or zombies if you will wouldn’t be a normal pick for me Despite this Sabriel kept my attention and there was plenty of magic and world building to hook me inSabriel’s father is the Abhorsen a necromancer with a difference He returns the dead to their resting place sends creatures that should be dead into death and generally protects the living from the deadWhen her father goes missing Sabriel must leave her boarding school travel over the wall into the Old Kingdom and face all sorts of enemies mainly dead or half dead or bodies taken over by dead spirits you get the idea With delightful descriptions such as this “like an apple corer punching the Dead spirit out of the rotting corpse” The main magic system is that of Charter Magic the use of symbols to create spells and anyone who is a Charter Mage will have a symbol on their forehead to indicate this It was a fantastic and creative system The other characters were great Mogget the talking yet mysterious cat and Touchstone the poor chap who has been trapped for 200 years and has just been rescued I really enjoyed this it was a uick read and though parts of the magic system were a bit tough to figure out I thought it was a great concept and I’ve never read anything else like it “Let this be my final lesson Everyone and everything has a time to die”
