Author Info
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
"...an involving fantasy that takes off running and doesn't let up the pace until the final page....The pacing is exquisite, the suspense rising and falling and rising again until the truly edge-of-your-seat finale."
From the Publisher
First Line It was little more than three miles from the Wall into the Old Kingdom, but that was enough.
Annotation Though only 18, Sabriel must take over her father's terrifying duties as the Abhorsen--the only person who can battle the dead and banish them past the nine gates so they can not return--and fight the unknown forces that seek to wreak havoc throughout Ancelstierre and the Old Kingdom. Raised in a posh boarding school in modern Ancelstierre, Sabriel discovers that her father seems to be caught in Death and must travel to a home she's never known, in the dangerous, charter magic-filled Old Kingdom. There, she discovers Mogget, a white cat who is not what he seems, and ventures into the unknown to save her father, or become the Abhorsen. A fast-paced, gripping read, this young adult fantasy novel is the first in the Abhorsen trilogy by the bestselling author Garth Nix.
