5 1/2 stars!!
This is the 2nd book in the Abhorsen Trilogy. We learn about the Daughter’s of the Clayr, where they live, how their lives are, and how Lirael is raised. Her dreams, her magic, her own doubts as she attempts to take her own life.
The library is an amazing place full of magic, some good, some not so good. She sneaks into places she really shouldn’t be. And when she does get caught….. You will have to find out for yourself!
Another AMAZING read from Garth Nix. 5 1/2 stars!!
This is the first book in the Abhorsen Trilogy. You are pulled into the life of Sabriel. You are pulled into death and learn a bit about the Charter. Unlike most magic Charter has it’s rules. During all three books Mr. Nix follows those rules. You will be seeing Charter Marks in your dreams and wondering what happens to Sabriel.
I give this one 5 1/2 stars! The BEST fantasy book I have read in a long time.
Sadly I was not impressed. It is your typical fan girl meets the actor of her dreams and falls in love. I know we all know the basic of the ending. It is the story of how they end up together that is supposed to appeal to us. I found it slow and ready to put it down by the end of the 1st chapter. There was a LOT of potential to add to the story that was left undone.
I found the grammar to be way too teenager like and if it wasn’t for the poorly written sex scenes I would have put this book in the category of a young middle schooler reader. (say 7th gradeish).
If you are looking for a romance book, skip this one.
