The long-buried secrets of the Old Kingdom and the Ninth Gate are revealed in the sequel to Sabriel and Lirael.

Orannis, the Destroyer, has been freed from its subterranean prison and now seeks to unleash its terrible powers. Only Lirael, Abhorsen-in-Waiting, has any chance of stopping this enemy of all Life. As she and her companions - Sameth, the Disreputable Dog and Mogget - set out on their fated journey, Lirael has no idea of what lies ahead.
Only days earlier, Lirael was merely a Second Assistant Librarian. Now, with only a vision from the Clayr to guide her and without the experience of Abhorsen Sabriel and King Touchstone, she must search both Life and Death for some means to defeat the Destroyer. Before it is too late...

MEDIA REVIEWS

"At once an allegory regarding war and peace and a testament to friendship, this thought-provoking fantasy also resolves the true identities of the popular Dog and Mogget characters-and suggests that Nix may still have more tricks up his sleeve." Publishers Weekly

"Fans will be overjoyed." School Library Journal

Praise for Sabriel...
"Sabriel is a winner, a fantasy that reads like realism. I congratulate Garth Nix." Philip Pullman

"Fast pace, drama, vivid descriptions, excitement and humour... What more could you want?" The Guardian

"Every publisher thinks they have the next great children's fantasy writer. Harper Collins know they have." Nick Holt, AML
