Sabriel 25th Anniversary Classic Edition

We rated this book:


It was twenty-five years that Garth Nix took his readers on a new and wonderful journey into the Old Kingdom for the first time. Sabriel is at a boarding school in Ancelstierre and discovers her father, the Abhorsen, has gone missing. She knows she must now travel into the Old Kingdom where magic is alive and well. Fortunately, she makes some friends along the way in Mogget, a cat who is in every way the epitome of the feline form, but also with a magical twist; and Touchstone, a Charter Mage who was once imprisoned by magic and is now free. The three must travel the Old Kingdom where there is a battle waging between life and death.

In the special 25th-anniversary edition of Sabriel, readers get not only the wonderful story of our first journey into the Old Kingdom, but bonus material with a second on “The Writing of Sabriel,” a “Notebooks” section featuring notes Nix made in writing the book, the typescript for the first page of the novel featuring Nix’s alterations, and then bonus Old Kingdom material with a short story “One Wyverly Summer,” and excerpts from Lirael and Nix’s new novel Terciel and Elinor.
