Publisher Description

The long-awaited fifth installment in Garth Nix’s New York Times bestselling Old Kingdom series, for readers who enjoy series by Rae Carson, Kristin Cashore, Scott Westerfeld, and Cassandra Clare.

Goldenhand takes place six months after the events of Abhorsen and follows the novella Nicholas Sayre and the Creature in the Case, which is featured in Across the Wall.

Lirael lost one of her hands in the binding of Orannis, but now she has a new hand, one of gilded steel and Charter Magic. On a dangerous journey, Lirael returns to her childhood home, the Clayr’s Glacier, where she was once a Second Assistant Librarian. There, a young woman from the distant North brings her a message from her long-dead mother, Arielle. It is a warning about the Witch with No Face. But who is the Witch, and what is she planning? Lirael must use her new powers to save the Old Kingdom from this great danger—and it must be forestalled not only in the living world but also in the cold, remorseless river of Death.

What happened to Tim Curry?

I am barely 10 tracks in, and I am sorely missing the smooth and seamless story telling voice belonging to Tim Curry. He was perfection! I can usually settle in to new readers if one does not do an entire series or trilogy, but this woman absolutely ruins the story so far. Huge flourishes with accent, choppy cadence, character voices that more or less have no distinct differences, and just downright bland, unlikeable, and almost mechanical. I am cringing through because I paid the money (and the Abhorsen series is my favorite series of books) ... I can only hope she gets better or, heaven forbid, grows on me. RIP Tim Curry (not literally, of course).

Should have brought Tim Curry back

I’m sorry I tried desperately to get into this audiobook but I couldn’t get into the narrator. I loved the original trilogy read by Tim Curry should have brought him back
