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.
This book has been my favorite since the 6th grade when I got it at the school’s book fair. I’m 29 now and I have reread it so many times and now I’m looking forward to listening to it. Even more so when I found out that it was narrated by Tim Curry with his amazing voice.
I’m definitely looking forward this!
Loved the book, and love the book on tape. Tim Curry is an amazing narrator, and the book is exciting and addictive! This is a DO BUY!
This is a wonderful book that I love and hope you will try. LOVE the reader. Lirael is a wimp at first thow :(
