Lirael is no longer a shy Second Assistant Librarian. She is the Abhorsen-in-Waiting, with dead creatures to battle and Free Magic entities to bind. She's also a Remembrancer, wielder of the Dark Mirror. Lirael lost one of her hands in the binding of Orannis, but now she has a new hand, one of gilded steel and Charter Magic. When Lirael finds Nicholas Sayre lying unconscious after being attacked by a hideous Free Magic creature, she uses her powers to save him. But Nicholas is deeply tainted with Free Magic. Fearing it will escape the Charter mark that seals it within his flesh and bone, Lirael seeks help for Nick at her childhood home, the Clayr's Glacier. Even as Lirael and Nick return to the Clayr, a young woman from the distant north braves the elements and many enemies in a desperate attempt to bring a message to Lirael from her long-dead mother, Arielle. Ferin brings a dire warning about the Witch With No Face. But who is the Witch, and what is she planning? Once more a great danger threatens the Old Kingdom, and it must be forestalled not only in the living world, but also in the cold, remorseless river of Death.… (mais)

“Your librarians go into battle?”

“When they must,” said Lirael. “The Library is very old, and deep, and contains many things that have been put away for good reason. Creatures, dangerous knowledge, artifacts made not wisely, but too well . . . books that should not be opened without proper preparation, some books that should never be opened at all.”

“Creatures?”


Goldenhand continues the story of the Abhorsens in the time of Sabriel, Lireal, et al, dealing with some of the fall out of the battle with Orannis the Destroyer: specifically, Chlorr. It focuses primarily on Lireal and Nick along with newcomer from the North Ferin.

Main character wise, I still really like Lirael. The unsure young woman that doesn't belong is gone, replaced by the Abhorsen in waiting who saved the world--and is still learning how she fits in the world. Throw in Nick and a probably too sudden falling in love (to be fair, they're teenagers or not much beyond) and you get a nice mix of magical and technological upbringing that I've always thought the series could use more of.

The other new POV character Ferin is interesting in that she comes from a culture we really didn't see much of before. Unfortunately, she mostly felt like a plot device, running through most of the book. I'd like to hear a bit more from her after how she ends the books. If there's ever an Abhorsen #6, I guess there's a chance?

Once everyone meets up in the Claryr's glacier's the final half of the book really picks up. We're back on familiar ground and have a concrete threat to fight. The journey to the broken land far far in the north is a fascinating bit of world building--go to far and there's just literally no atmosphere any more--and we get the worldbuilding we need to finish binding Clariel to the rest of the books.

I wish we could have seen a bit more of the relationship between Sabriel and Lireal. We've never really had a chance to see an Abhorsen and well trained Abhorsen in waiting interact. Unfortunately, we don't get much of that here. Even with big bad Chlorr of the Mask, Sabriel has little to do on screen in the final battle(s). So it goes I guess.

Overall, a solid continuation to the series. Not quite as good as the first three, but still well within the level of books I will put on my list to re-read some day. Worth the read. ( )

Following the events of Abhorsen, and incorporating the story of Clariel, a prequel published subsequently, and also the novella "The Creature in the Case", Goldenhand is a welcome addition to Nix's Old Kingdom series.
The characters are recovering from their defeat of Orannis, but find there is still evil left to vanquish. More is also revealed about the lands north of the Old Kingdom as a young woman named Ferin rushes to inform the Abhorsen of a threat her tribe has been subjected to for ages. ( )

Yay, finally a proper sequel to the Abhorsen series, and a wonderful one at that! There’s no way that anyone reading the finale of the previous book would think that a powerful magic-user like Chlorr would be vanquished in single form, so this book provided a much-needed conclusion to her story (as begun in the second-most-recently published book, Clariel, in this series began). As well, it was wonderful to bring Lirael into adulthood and further in her training an Abhorsen-in-waiting and to see the entire cast of characters from various short stories and novellas tie together. We get the major battle settled at the Greenwash Bridge, we get appearances by both Moggot and the Disreputable Dog, we get a glimpse of Sabriel’s and Touchstone’s new royal household, and we get a continuation of the story begun in “the Creature in the Case” (which ties into larger scheme of Lirael’s and Nick’s lives). The finale of the book ties the story up quite nicely, but as always I’m crossing my fingers for a sixth book! ( )
