- 10+ in stock
Celebrating the 25th anniversary of Garth Nix’s groundbreaking fantasy saga, this classic hardback gift edition brings the enthralling story of Sabriel’s quest to rescue her Death-trapped father to a whole new generation of readers.
A stunning anniversary gift edition of the first in the bestselling Old Kingdom fantasy series. Sabriel has spent most of her young life far away from the magical realm of the Old Kingdom, and the Dead that roam it. But then a creature from across the Wall arrives at her all-girls boarding school with a message from her father, the Abhorsen - the magical protector of the realm whose task it is to bind and send back to Death those that won't stay Dead.
Sabriel's father has been trapped in Death by a dangerous Free Magic creature. Armed with her father's binding-bells and sword, she finds companions in Mogget, an ancient spirit bound into the body of a cat, and Touchstone, a young Charter Mage whom Sabriel frees from a long, magical imprisonment.
As the three travel deep into the Old Kingdom, threats mount on all sides. And every step brings them closer to a battle that will pit them against the true forces of life and death - and bring Sabriel face-to-face with her own destiny.
