Unknowingly started the Old Kingdom series with this book. I was able to begin with this book and totally understand the story. Great writing and great series. Can't wait for the prequel, Chlorr of the mask, to be released. Make sure to finish up the trilogy with Abhorsen.

Fabulous book, if a bit dry near the middle. The beginning part of the book was the best. Not as good as Sabriel, but still very good.

Good for teen readers- pick up the last entry in the series to have at the same time as this one, as it ends rather abruptly (leading directly into the third book.) No real concrete conclusion, as the story won't be finished until the third.

I wanted to hang out with Lirael more than I wanted to befriend Sabriel. I enjoyed my journey with this loner librarian a great deal. If you read Sabriel, keep reading the series, and spend some quality time in Garth Nix's Old Kingdom.
