Garth Nix delves deep into the mystical underworld of necromancy, magic, and the monstrous undead. This tale is not for the faint of heart; imbedded in the classic good-versus-evil story line are subplots of grisly ghouls hungry for human life to perpetuate their stay in the world of the living, and dark, devastating secrets of betrayal and loss. Just try to put this book down. For more along this line, try Nix's later novel: Shade's Children.

It's a wonderfully written, brilliant story full of great characters and amazing descriptive writing.
Regardless, Sabriel is a book that I can (and have) read again and again, and I highly recommend it to people who enjoy the young adult/fantasy genre.
It's been years since I read this book for the first time and just finished rereading it this morning.
Felt like a cross between Harry Potter and the Lord of the Rings. Read it in one sitting on a long flight to Buffalo. Engrossing, fun, easy read. Highly recommended!Published 6 hours ago by Sci Fi Junkie

Sabriel is a well thought out book. Nix imagined a fully formed world and characters. I look forward to reading his other works and can't believe this book is 10+ years old!Published 13 days ago by E. Burke

I loved this book, but like any other good mythological book; SCIENCE = MINIMAL!!
