But when tensions rise throughout the Old Kingdom and the appearance of an ancient evil threatens everyone, Lirael must leave the glacier she grew up on and rise to the challenge of following a different path than the one she believed she was destined for. When first reading Lirael I was disappointed that there was little mention or appearance of Sabriel and Touchstone as they were my favourite characters from the first book in the series.

However, the new cast of characters Nix introduces, including Sabriel's son Sam, more than make up for the lack of Sabriel and I found myself really loving this book. A major theme that runs throughout the book is feelings of isolation and difference from those around us, something that I, and I'm sure many other teenagers, can relate to. The use of this theme gives the book a human connection to readers amongst the interest and intrigue of the magic, prophecy and politics of the book.

Character-wise, I adored Lirael. Most of the book is told from her point of view, though the view point does occasionally switch, another plus of the book, and she is such a relatable character just as Sabriel was in the first book.

The book certainly ends with a cliffhanger, leaving the reader with many unanswered questions. I liked the ending; it seemed fitting given the attitudes of the characters it involved throughout the book itself. Overall, Lirael is another brilliant addition to the Old Kingdom series and sets itself up nicely for another book that is sure to be as action and magic-packed as always.

Lirael by Garth Nix - review

Plot introduction[ edit ] The book is split into three parts, the first of which is set 14 years after the events in Sabriel; the last two parts are set five years after part one. Sabriel and Touchstone have married since Sabriel and assumed a measure of control over the Old Kingdom. Their children Ellimere and Sameth were going to school in Ancelstierre similarly to Sabriel before being expected to take up their duties in the Old Kingdom. Plot summary[ edit ] Lirael, the protagonist of the second and third books, is raised as a Clayr, part of a vast family of precognitive women who dwell in a remote glacier within the Old Kingdom. As she lacks the Clayr's precognitive 'Sight', she considers herself not a true Clayr and prefers solitude to company. In young-adulthood, she joins the staff of the Clayr's Library, and acquires the Disreputable Dog; and with the latter's help, vanquishes a series of monsters in the Library itself. His father Touchstone therefore takes him back to the Old Kingdom and the safety of the palace in Belisaere.
