Game of Thrones fans will love the New York Times bestselling Abhorsen series. Sabriel, the first installment in the trilogy, launched critically acclaimed author Garth Nix onto the fantasy scene as a rising star.

Since childhood, Sabriel has lived outside the walls of the Old Kingdom, away from the power of Free Magic, and away from the Dead who refuse to stay dead. But now her father, the Abhorson, is missing, and Sabriel must cross into that world to find him. With Mogget, whose feline form hides a powerful, perhaps malevolent spirit, and Touchstone, a young Charter Mage, Sabriel travels deep into the Old Kingdom. There she confronts an evil that threatens much more than her life and comes face-to-face with her own hidden destiny. . . .

Ever since her childhood, Sabriel has lived in a boarding school outside the high walls of the Old Kingdom - a land of necromancers, in which the dead rise from their graves to serve their sorcerer masters. After Sabriel's father goes missing, though, she and her friend Touchstone must pass through the land of the living dead to find him. There they confront Shadow Hands, Gore Crows and all manner of foul beasts, and it is also by finding their own hidden strengths that they can succeed in their perilous quest.
