Book # 3: Abhorsen by Garth Nix

This Book Review is for Abhorsen by Garth Nix. It is the beloved finale to Sabriel and Lirael and is the third and final book in the Abhorson Trilogy and was published in 2003.

The New Abhorsen Bookcover

Genre: Fantasy

What it Contains: Action is very prominent and  smaller conflicts are no longer present as they once were as the main conflict unfolds throughout the novel. Romance is no longer as strong a theme since potential love connections are lost or no longer feasible. Mystery is prominent and unfold very well as the books continues.  Then the final addition of all for good series…. the final ending. The Ending is a well written finale to the series and long awaited as well simply because the readers want to know how it all turns out.

Length: The Hardcover version is 638 pages that is broken up into three parts consisting of a total of 29 chapters plus the prologue and epilogue.

Who Would Enjoy It: It is intended for Young Adults but really anyone who is over 13 would enjoy the book immensely.

Enjoyment Level: A 10 out of 10.

Rating: Young Adult/PG.  It has violence but nothing that’s to graphic or disturbing. Slight mentions of nudity and sex but once again only in passing and nothing explicit. * The first rating is what the publishers rate the book, the second is what I perceive the events in the book to accurately fit the best.

Overall the book and its counterparts are a great read and I would very highly recommend it and the remaining installment of the trilogy to others. It has every thing a good fantasy book and series should always have and is extremely well written just as its original counterpart is. Happy reading!

Final Note….

Most of the things I’ve written here are from my perspective and how I see the things in the book and its all merely a suggestion for a good reading experience on my part. Thank you.

Book # 2: Lirael by Garth Nix

This Book Review is for Lirael by Garth Nix. It is the beloved sequel to Sabriel and the second book in the Abhorson Trilogy and was published in 2001.

The New Book Cover of Lirael

Genre: Fantasy

What it Contains: Action is very consistent theme and a few smaller conflicts are present as the main conflict unfolds throughout the novel. Romance is defiantly an interesting topic in this book but I won’t reveal why, you’ll need to find that out yourself.  Drama and scandals are rather prominent near the beginning, though not overly so, that gradually deepens and intrigues the reader further as the novel goes on.  Then the best addition of all for books in a good series…. the cliffhanger. Revealing something that if you paid attention you’ll be delighted to know that your theory ( or possibly theories 😉 ) was correct, but at the same time giving another mystery for you to work out in your mind as you read the next book, though if you solved these first few you’ll have little trouble with the next few.

Length: The Hardcover version is 720 pages that is broken up into three parts consisting of a total of 44 chapters plus the prologue and epilogue.

Who Would Enjoy It: It is intended for Young Adults but really anyone who is over 13 would enjoy the book immensely.

Enjoyment Level: A 10 out of 10.

Rating: Young Adult/PG.  It has violence but nothing that’s to graphic or disturbing. Slight mentions of nudity and sex but once again only in passing and nothing explicit. * The first rating is what the publishers rate the book, the second is what I perceive the events in the book to accurately fit the best.

My first book review is for the book Sabriel by Garth Nix. It is the first in the Abhorson Trilogy and was first released in 1995.

New Sabriel Cover

Genre: Fantasy

What it contains: Action is very prominent and small conflicts are present as well as the main conflict of the story. Just enough romance is written to keep it interesting but not turn it into a romance novel. Some light drama near the beginning that gradually deepens as the novel goes on.  Then the best addition of all for a series beginner….a cliffhanger. Not enough to leave you hanging severely if you would rather not continue with the series, but enough to keep you curious and wondering if you do.

Length: The Hardcover version is 304 pages broken up into twenty-nine chapters and the prologue and epilogue make thirty-one.

Who would enjoy it: It is aimed to be read by young adults, but can be enjoyed by just about anyone over the age of 13.

Enjoyment Level: A 10 out of 10.

Rating: Young Adult/PG. It has violence but nothing to graphic or disturbing. Slight mentions of nudity and sex but once again only in passing and nothing explicit. * This rating is given by what I consider to be PG, the publishing company is what rated the book Young Adult.
