Praise for Sabriel

Sabriel is a winner, a fantasy that reads like realism. Here is a world with the same solidity and four dimensional authority as our own, created with invention, clarity, and intelligence. I congratulate Garth Nix. And I look forward to reading his next piece of work.” —Philip Pullman, author of His Dark Materials trilogy

“Rich, complex, involving, hard to put down, excellent high fantasy.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Nix has created an ingenious, icy world. The action charges along at a gallop. A page-turner for sure.” —ALA Booklist (starred review)

“An involving fantasy that takes off running and doesn’t let up the pace until the final page. The pacing is exquisite, the suspense rising and falling and rising again until the truly edge-of-your-seat finale. A winner for fantasy and adventure lovers.” —BCCB

Praise for Lirael

“What makes Lirael a delight is the magic that Nix brings to his story and to his characters.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Riveting. Readers who like their fantasy intense in action, magisterial in scope, and apocalyptic in consequences will revel in every work.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Praise for Abhorsen

“Nix brings his trilogy to a literally earth-shattering conclusion. Action explodes from the very first pages. Breathtaking, bittersweet, and utterly unforgettable.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“This title has a cinematic sweep; the tense, climactic confrontation pulls from the very beginning into a tightly constructed, satisfying conclusion.” —BCCB
