But now her father, the Mage Abhorsen, is missing, and to find him Sabriel must cross back into that treacherous world - and face the power of her own extraordinary destiny.

'Sabriel is a winner, a fantasy that reads like realism. Here is a world with the same solidity and four-dimensional authority as our own, created with invention, clarity and intelligence.' PHILIP PULLMAN 'Passionately exciting, full of intriguing characters and stunning scenery, Sabriel is sheer enjoyment.' THE TIMES 'Weaving horror and fantasy into a rich, original story. A powerful, gripping quest.' THE AGE
