Abhorsen by Garth Nix

Review by Alyachies

Spoilers for Sabriel and Lirael

Characters:
Well from Lirael we have Lirael, Sam, Mogget, The Disreputable Dog, Nicholas [he's in this book a whole lot more], Sabriel, Touchstone [slightly bigger parts than in Lirael], all the evil baddies [except Clorr, I don't think she's very much if at all after the first few chapters], there are Perimeter soldiers in the end and the two twin Clayrs appear close to the end. Okay, I'm getting a drop too specific.

*Spoilers*

Plot:
This is the sequel to Sabriel and Lirael.
Lirael, Sam, Mogget and Dog find a way out of the Abhorsen's House. But they find the spirit [I don't know what else to call it] of Astarel and they think they loose Mogget. They get to the Red Lake after a lot of things happen [you can find that out when you read the book]. What the Clayrs Saw finally happens. The hemispheres are taken out of the ground and Dog tells Lirael and Sam what has laid dormant in the hemispheres. Although through someone it isn't sleeping anymore. And it's not the ex-evil from Sabriel [I'm sorry I forgot his name!]

Review:
I loved it. THIS is the reason that I love Garth Nix. He was evil for making me wait so long for this book but it was worth it. The maps [one of the Abhorsen's House] were a nice touch [I can't help but like books with maps :)]. Nicholas rocks and I love Garth Nix for... uh... for what happens at the end. Except for the part with... okay, I'm shutting up.
