Dark and creepy, it gave me the chills. Well written and a vividly told story. The main characters grew on me over time and I enjoyed their bravery and the subtle touch of romance.

Garth Nix does a beautiful job of introducing the world of Sabriel; a young lady who travels from her school where she is a prefect, into the darker world of magic where she becomes a necromancer and earns the title of Abhorsen. Listening to Tim Curry narrate the story brings the characters to life and keeps the audience entranced with his interpretations of what the characters would sound like. Definitely a series to get involved in.
