Lirael has never felt like a true daughter of the Clayr, but nonetheless it is Lirael in whose hands the fate of the Old Kingdom lies. She must now undertake a desperate mission under the growing shadow of an ancient evil and find the courage to seek her own hidden destiny.
From the Publisher:

Who is Lirael?

Lirael has never felt like a true daughter of the Clayr. Abandoned by her mother, ignorant of her father's identity, Lirael resembles no one else in her large extended family living in the Clayr's Glacier. She doesn't even have the Sight -- the ability to See into the present and possible futures -- that is the very birthright of the Clayr.

Nonetheless, it is Lirael in whose hands the fate of the Old Kingdom lies. She must undertake a desperate mission under the growing shadow of an ancient evil -- one that opposes the Royal Family, blocks the Sight of the Clay; and threatens to break the very boundary between Life and Death itself. With only her faithful companion, the Disreputable Dog, to help her, Lirael must find the courage to seek her own hidden destiny.

In this sequel to the critically acclaimed Sabriel, Garth Nix draws readers deeper into the magical landscape of the Old Kingdom and weaves a spellbinding tale of discovery, destiny, and danger.

Author Bio
Garth Nix
Garth Nix is best known for his two middle-grade fantasy series--Keys to the Kingdom and The Seventh Tower--as well as the young-adult fantasy trilogy Abhorsen and the chilling novel SHADE'S CHILDREN. The Australian writer was an enthusiastic reader as a child growing up in Canberra, the national capital. After time spent in the Australian Army Reserve; travel in Europe, the Middle East, and Asia; and fitting in a B.A. from the University of Canberra in 1986, Nix has done everything from working in a bookstore to publishing and marketing. Some of his favorite authors are Ursula Le Guin, Diana Wynne Jones, Alan Garner, and Joan Aiken.

Praise

Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"The plot is filled with hair-raising escapes, desperate flights, relentless pursuits, and magical duels, described in sensual language that makes the scenes live." - Janice M. Del Negro May 2001
