As I mentioned in my review of Lirael, Abhorsen is really the second half of a book. It doesn't stand alone, but it doesn't need to. We continue where we left off in Lirael and things keep escalating.

Worldbuildingwise, we have a much deeper dig into the deep history of the world, into the roots of Free Magic beings and the Charter. We learn more about Mogget and the Dog both along with our big bad: Orannis, the Destroyer. On to the end of the world...

It's quite a burden for the Abhorsen in waiting, but she can do it. And Sameth is a lot better this way around.

A solid conclusion to the Abhorsen trilogy. Well worth the read/listen. And quite the intense ending. You know how it has to end, but not at all how they're going to get there. Lovely.

Also, Mogget:


“As for you, Private, if you mention a word of this to anyone, I'll feed you to the cat thing here. Understand?"

"Yum," said Mogget.

"Yes, sir!" mumbled the telephone operator, his hands shaking as he tried to smother the burning wreckage of his switchboard with a fire blanket.”

Sabriel is a wonderful book. Fantasy books dealing with death magic are among my favorites, the worldbuilding is fantastic (in the truest sense of the world), and the main characters are all a lot of fun. Each time I spend long enough without reading it, I always forget just how much I enjoy reading (or in this case listening too) this book.

The worldbuilding is great. You don't get the sense of mechanical precision you would get from someone like Sanderson, but it's a world that feels both magical and 'real', which is always something I'm looking for. In particular, the idea of a magical world and a WWIish era technological world, separated by a sometimes porous wall is a neat one. Even though it's not an uncommon trope, I have yet to find a book that does it quite as well. Especially the eponymous Sabriel's experience being born and of one kingdom, but raised in a boarding school and with the perspective of the other. I really want to know so much more than we're given about this history of this world...

On top of that, I really like the main character of Sabriel. She's young, but still an adult, thrust into her powers over the dead and rising to meet the challenge wonderfully. She's strong and smart, a great roll model.

And then there's comic-relief-ish, snarky animal (ish) sidekick Mogget. It's a trope that can be done badly, but it's done oh so well here, with an added bonus of a terrifying power that sometimes you just have to let go. And best of all--the audiobook narration is done by Tim Curry; his voice for Mogget is magnificent.

One oddity is that it's surprisingly adult for what's billed as a children's book. The main character deals in death magic and several characters die, right from the beginning. There's all manner of violence and at least mentions of sex. Perhaps a book to read first? I'd still recommend it whole heartedly for perhaps teenagers/young adults

Speaking of which, it's interesting reading a book like this again, several years and children of my own later. It certainly makes the whole relationship between Sabriel and her parents hit quite a bit harder...


"Yes," said Abhorsen. "I am a necromancer, but not of the common kind. where others of the art raise the dead, I lay them back to rest. And those that will not rest, I bind-or try to. I am Abhorsen . . ."

He looked at the baby again, and added, almost with a note of surprise, "Father of Sabriel."

This book really is the second half of "Lirael" as far as I'm concerned. Quite good, though!

This is a great finale to a series. Very well done. I loved how it was practically a continuation of Lirael. There was nothing really wow about this book but it was solid overall. I want to know more about how the other sides of the Wall work and who technology and magic fail when they cross into their opposing sides.

I wish some main characters had actually died off in the final battle though. I sorta wish Mr. Nix had killed Sabriel and Touchstone because not a lot of authors kill off their characters and I liked the book slightly more when I thought he was brave enough to do it. It was also one of the only moments in the series when I felt a bit of fondness for those two characters, but it was all taken away when they didn't die. I'd like to say the same for Lirael's character. I respected her resolve to sacrifice herself. I understand why the Dog did what she did, but I wish someone other more important person had passed through the gates for the final time. ( )

Fog rose from the river, great billows of white weaving into the soot and smoke of the city of Corvere, to become the hybrid thing that the more popular newspapers called smog and The Times "miasmic fog".
