Sabriel by Garth Nix

Tuesday • April 4 • 6:30pm

Mill Creek store

Join Wayward Readers Society for a discussion of the award-winning book that launched Garth Nix into fantasy genre stardom.

Since childhood, Sabriel has lived outside the walls of the magical Old Kingdom. Tucked away at a private school in Ancelstierre—a more modern land where magic does not work—she spends her days studying, while her necromancer father, Terciel, uses his skills to put the Old Kingdom's dangerous undead to rest. But now Terciel is missing. When an unusual messenger arrives at her school with his sword and tools, it is up to Sabriel to cross the wall and find him. Accompanied by Mogget, a powerful, perhaps malevolent spirit hidden in a feline form, and Touchstone, a young Charter Mage, she will travel deep into the Old Kingdom and the domain of a treacherous new evil that resides there.
