This book continues the story set up in Lirael with the main characters racing to stop The Destroyer.
I've read this series several times over the past couple of decades and though it's long, I always race through it. I'm excited that more books are coming out in this series! ( )

I really enjoyed this tale of magic, necromancers, walking dead and the adventure to stop an ancient being from destroying the world. The Abhorsen is a magician and wielder of bells that can compel dead spirits to go back into death. The charter holds a multitude of magic that can be drawn upon by charter mages, including the Abhorsen, to heal, open and lock, protect and many other spells. The Old Kingdom is where this can happen and where the spirits of the dead can walk again if they can find a body to inhabit. Old Kingdom is walled from the country of Ancelstierre, where magic doesn't work and most of the people are even unaware of it. Technology doesn't work in the Old Kingdom, which feels like a country from the 17th century.

If you are interested in stories with twists and turns, fantastic adventures, dark and light battling, this one is for you. ( )

Maybe 3.5 stars, but I'm feeling generous. Certainly improved over [b: Lirael|47624|Lirael (Abhorsen, #2)|Garth Nix|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1266458951l/47624._SY75_.jpg|2067752], if only because it has a story with an actual plot and ending (albeit carried over from the previous book). Oddly, like its predecessor, however, the book's title implies that the story is about one person when in fact it is primarily about another. I'm not sure who's responsible for naming these books—whether Nix or someone at his publisher or perhaps a Shadow Hand stuck in a cubicle somewhere—but the titles of the second and third volumes of this series leave a lot to be desired.

Now that I've gotten to the end, I can't help but think that the story itself suffers from the absurdity of the escalation. It's the same sort of thing that happens in TV shows, where the Big Bad gets bigger each season, until the showrunners have painted themselves into a corner. In Sabriel, the title character had to fight and defeat one of the Greater Dead; however, by Lirael and Abhorsen, the fight is against an entity called The Destroyer, who can unmake all life and existence itself. There could have been a way to ease into it further, giving Lirael more of a (realistic, IMO) Sabriel-esque journey, but that didn't happen.

I also should bring up something that has bugged me a bit with Nix's writing, but which hit a peak in this book: His tendency to use words and phrases that come out of very specific events, persons/groups, or products. An example from an earlier book is when Nix describes Touchstone as a berserker, which has a primary world etymology that doesn't really fit with the world Nix created. For the most part I can get past this, but a more egregious example occurs in this book: Bakelite, an actual brand name from the primary world, named after a real person, which makes no sense at all in the Ancelstierran history. That's the sort of thing that pulls me right out of the story as my brain tries to figure out a way to resolve the discrepancy, to no avail.

To end more positively, I do enjoy the continued explorations of the two types of magic, as well as the larger mythology behind them. ( )

[This is a review I wrote in 2007]

As with "Sabriel" and "Lirael" before it, I just couldn't put this book down. It's every bit as brilliant as the others and leaves you wishing for more when you get to the end.

"Abhorsen" follows on immediately from "Lirael", continuing Lirael's story as she realises she has left her old life with The Seeing Clayr behind her for good, and must try to fulfil her destiny if an ancient dark force, stronger than life and creation, is to be prevented from wreaking total destruction in both the Old Kingdom and the more modern world of Ancelstierre.

Can Lirael, with Sam, the Disreputable Dog and the strange magical cat-thing Mogget do enough to stop this dark force.... Can they reach Sam's old school friend Nicholas Sayre who seems to be bound into helping one of the most powerful Greater Dead, Hedge.... bound to helping him bring to life this dark and all-powerful destructive force of evil?

Fog rose from the river, great billows of white weaving into the soot and smoke of the city of Corvere, to become the hybrid thing that the more popular newspapers called smog and The Times "miasmic fog".
