Sent to a boarding school in Ancelstierre as a young child Sabriel has had little experience with the random power of Free Magic or the Dead who refuse to stay dead in the Old Kingdom But du. 35 stars Death and what came after death was no great mystery to Sabriel She just wished it was Sabriel and her father have a very uniue brand of magic They can communicate with the dead and the damned from the Old KingdomOnly they can confront such creatures and send them back to the gates of deathThen during the first semester of Sabriel's school her father the Abhorsen goes missing and Sabriel is unwittingly promoted to the Abhorson Does the walker choose the path or the path the walker With the dead creeping ever closer to her friends and countrymen Sabriel must go to find her father before it's too late and he transverses through one gate of death too many Do not tarry do not stop no matter what happens I've heard so many wonderful things about this onethat IwelllI expected a little bit I just never felt a connection to this book the magic the characters the plot all meh to meThis book relies heavily on Charter Magic which from what I can tell involves speaking certain words and following strict rules that are never fully explained to the audienceThe most frustrating part is that there's no build to the magic it's just there It's kind of like if you jumped into the seventh Harry Potter book without the first few novels of magical background it was frustratingly complexThe other thing that really bugged me was the love interest Sabriel and the love interest were essentially acuaintances or perhaps pals if you want to stretch it but all of a sudden before the big battle THIS happens I love you he whispered I hope you don't mind And I'm just sitting there like what When did this happen Between the magic mayhem and the bland to non existent love I never formed an emotional connection to any of the main characters or the plot other than Mogget Mogget was the shining star in the clouded nightIt felt like I was being dragged on a journey rather than eagerly plunging into a new series Maybe I'll feel connected in book 2 Anyone else feel the sameAudiobook CommentsRead by Tim Curry and honestly this audio did the book NO favors It was SO frustrating to have all these really cool concepts and absolutely NO excitement from the narrator No tone No characterization other than MoggetYouTube | Blog | Instagram | Twitter | Snapchat mirandareads Happy Reading

characters Sabriel AUTHOR Garth Nix

Sabriel AUTHOR Garth NRing her final semester her father the Abhorsen goes missing and Sabriel knows she must enter the Old Kingdom to find him With Sabriel the first installment in the Abhorsen series Garth Nix. This book really should have been exciting but I actually would have had a much better time had I just blared Monster Mash from my stereo and danced around like a zombie with chicken skin pasted to my face Jedi knight of the living dead I feel like this was probably really cool in the 90's and if I had read it then as my pre Harry Potter 10 year old self I probably would have loved it But now my brain has descended into different forms of oblivion and I laugh voraciously at danger Ha ha haaaaa Ah shiznit I just used a Disney movie to demonstrate how grown up I am Not to mention I said shiznitI'm going to give you my bored face half hearted summary because the story is way to convoluted to go into much depth without lulling myself into a comaSabriel is told from the third person perspective of a young girl named Sabriel what a co inky dink a necromancer whose father disappears into the realm of the dead She tasks herself with going to retrieve him because she believes he's still alive Blah blah Monster monster Magic magicOur heroine Sabriel who I probably would have thought was the kiss ass ueen of kick ass when i was younger seems to know exactly what to do all the time without any internal dialogue insight or even advice Not to mention training How did she know all this stuff Because she was destined to become the Abhorsen Maybe that would have worked for me when I was young naive and believed that I was going to marry Han Solo But now I need to see the character work and earn the right to their abilities I need to see them struggle and angst over it like young Harryimage error
