Lirael has never felt like a true daughter of the Clayr. Abandoned by her mother, ignorant of her father's identity, Lirael resembles no one else in her large extended family living in the Clayr's glacier. She doesn't even have the Sight--the ability to See into the present and possibly futures--that is the very birthright of the Clayr.
Nonetheless, it is Lirael in whose hands the fate of the Old Kingdom lies. She must undertake a desperate mission under the growing shadow of an ancient evil--one that opposes the Royal Family, blocks the Sight of the Clayr, and threatens to break the very boundary between Life and Death itself. With only her faithful companion, the Disreputable Dog to help her, Lirael must find the courage to seek her own hidden destiny.

A good audiobook.
Tim Curry's voice suits these books perfectly. I'm very fussy with who reads the books, and was very optimistic about buying this one but am now so glad I did. His voice has that edge that conveys the perfect atmosphere. Would recommend to anyone who is after a good audiobook.
High price but worth it
This is a superb sequel to Sabriel, brought to life (!) by Tim Curry's evocative narration, and is worth every penny (even if it is a bit pricey).
Costs to much
I love these books, but not paying that price for them when they can be bought for next to nothing in a shop.
Bring the price right down IMO.
