Publisher Description

In the final book in the Old Kingdom trilogy, master of fantasy and globally bestselling author Garth Nix returns to the fantastic world of Sabriel for an unforgettable conclusion. "Breathtaking, bittersweet, and utterly unforgettable.” *

After centuries in captivity, the Destroyer is nearly free.

Beneath the earth, a malignant force lies waiting, greedy for freedom from its ancient prison. As the Old Kingdom falls once more into a realm of darkness and terror, the people look desperately to the Abhorsen, the scourge of the Dead, to save them. Yet Abhorsen Sabriel is lost, missing in Ancelstierre.

Only Lirael has any chance of stopping the Destroyer. With her companions Sameth, Mogget and the Disreputable Dog, she travels across the Old Kingdom in a race against time, battling Shadow Hands and dark necromancers to reach Ancelstierre before it is too late. But what hope can one young woman have against a terrible evil with the power to destroy life itself?

This eagerly awaited conclusion to Garth Nix’s extraordinary trilogy of Old Kingdom books is a complex and vividly imagined story, powerful, terrifying and compelling.

“Terror, courage, bitterness, love, desperation, and sacrifice all swirl together in an apocalyptic climax that pits both Life and Death together against the destruction of everything."  —Kirkus*

The best book

This is probably the best book that I have ever read, and the only one that could even compare is The Mortal Instruments series.

It's okay

Having read the first two books, I realized after getting through this third one, that they are all basically the same story, with the characters switched around. More or less the same things happen. But you know, if you liked the first one, then you will probably like the others. Just don't expect anything different.

I kind of think Garth Nix could have stretched the story to some new angle, but i guess once you find a formula that sells, safest thing is not to mess with it. I don't think these will be classics, but the ideas are interesting and creative enough.

I bought them all and enjoyed them. I don't want this to sound like a negative review. Its just a review.
