Lirael definitely prepared us very well for this story, because since we had the preparation for Abhorsen during Lirael, in Abhorsen we can plunge straight into the action.

Lirael has accepted her fate as the Abhorsen in Waiting. She has thrown away her previous dreams of being a Clayr, and is now ready to take on her title as Abhorsen. Sameth, on the other hand, will never be an Abhorsen or anything like it. He is destined to be a Wallmaker, a creator.

There is a big problem. Nicholas Sayre, Sameth's friend, has been sort-of possessed by a fragment of a thing called the Destroyer. He is taken by a single-minded determination to join these two hemispheres of metal, even though he doesn't know what they are. Obviously, Lirael and Sameth have to stop it.

The setting growth was amazing. Garth Nix has very successfully built and expanded on the world we were introduced to in Sabriel. I love Death because it is dangerous and unpredictable, and we were discovering it with Lirael. It was unknown to her to, which made her notice everything there, and made the reader picture it better. I especially loved the Ninth Gate, it sounds simply... wow.

I loved the final battle. Wow again. I stayed up so late to finish it.

Why do my two favourite characters have to DISAPPEAR!!

(SPOILER ALERT) I was so sad over the Disreputable Dog. I actually cried over her. Mogget too, although I only came close to tears then, I didn't actually cry over him like I did for the Dog. At the end, I was like SERIOUSLY?! That's how you end? What happened to them! You can't just end the series with the Disreputable Dog wandering off, basically never to be seen again. *sniffle*. I am so sad over that dog.(END SPOILER)

This was a fantastic book. Definitely recommended!!!
