She had become an Abhorsen, Lirael thought, at least on the outside.

"Abhorsen is an excellent denouement for a fantasy that is both literary and popularly accessible. Out loud, the powers of this future classic are intensified, especially through Curry's inspired dramatization." (School Library Journal)
"At once an allegory regarding war and peace and a testament to friendship, this thought-provoking fantasy also resolves the true identities of the popular Dog and Mogget characters and suggests that Nix may still have more tricks up his sleeve." (Publishers Weekly)
I couldnt wait to get into the third book of the trilogy. The narration was great and the story lived up to expectations. Excellent overall
"An Incredible Listen"
This book is beautifully written, as is always the case with Garth Nix. I did not expect to find an audio version which even began to portray the beauty and depth of his world, but Tim Curry was definitely the right person to chose to do so. If you've read the series, or are simply looking to find out if it's any good, I would definitely suggest listening to this.
The very best thing about this audio edition of 'Abhorsen' is Tim Curry(Mr Curry read the first two parts 'Sabriel' and 'Lirael' also). I am 48 and have listened to each and every book countless times. He quite brilliantly brings the trilogy to life with his amazing readings. It is pure joy to have these books given and extra zing. You won't be dissapointed!
Having loved the books I got these audio versions and haven't been disappointed! The narrator does a fantastic job and I have had many happy hours listening! Already listened to them all twice! Fantastic!
"Sabrial and Larial by Garth Nix"
Both these books are wonderful stories. Not just for kids either, I am 50 and have really enjoyed them. I am about to get the third and final part and I am sure it will not disapoint.
Brilliant climax to a superb trilogy. Moves from the Sameth/Lirael 'discovering their identities' phase to riveting action. Brilliantly read, and wonderful characters. The Disreputable Dog and Mogget are witty and intelligent additions to the blossoming pair of Sameth and Lirael, for whom you find yourself rooting for more and more as the tension mounts. A great pity it had to end.
