Teaser Tuesday #67: Sabriel (Abhorsen #1) by Garth Nix




Welcome to Teaser Tuesdays.


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:


1. Grab your current read


2. Open to a random page


3. Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too muchaway! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)


4. Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!



My current read is Sabriel (Abhorsen #1) by Garth Nix and my two lines are from Page 216:


She was reluctant to enter the human tide. There was no Dead among them, as far as she could sense,but they must have some kind of accommodation or agreement with the Dead and that stank to her far more than sewage.





Ever since she was a tiny child, Sabriel has lived outside the walls of the Old Kingdom, away from the random power of Free Magic, and away from the Dead who won't stay dead. But now her father, the Mage Abhorsen, is missing, and to find him Sabriel must cross back into the nine Gates and Precincts of Death. Though her journey begins alone, she soon finds companions: Mogget, whose seemingly harmless feline form hides a powerful-and perhaps malevolent-spirit, and Touchstone, a younger Charter Mage imprisoned two centuries in a wooden ship-head, still trapped by painful memories. With threats on all sides and only each other to trust, the three must travel deep into the Old Kingdom, toward a battle against vicious Hands, Mordicants, and the evil Kerrigor
