Goldenhand se déroule six mois après les événements d’Abhorsen et fait suite à la novella Nicholas Sayre and the Creature in the Case, présentée dans Across the Wall.
Lirael a perdu l’une de ses mains lors de la ligature d’Orannis, mais elle en a désormais une nouvelle, faite d’acier doré et de magie de la Charte.
Au cours d’un dangereux voyage, Lirael retourne dans la maison de son enfance, le Glacier de Clayr, où elle était autrefois bibliothécaire adjointe. Là, une jeune femme venue du Nord lointain lui apporte un message de sa mère Arielle, décédée depuis longtemps.
Il s’agit d’une mise en garde contre la sorcière sans visage. Mais qui est cette sorcière et que prépare-t-elle ? Lirael doit utiliser ses nouveaux pouvoirs pour sauver le Vieux Royaume de ce grand danger – et il faut le prévenir non seulement dans le monde des vivants, mais aussi dans le fleuve froid et sans remords de la Mort.


Goldenhand takes place six months after the events of Abhorsen and follows the novella Nicholas Sayre and the Creature in the Case, which is featured in Across the Wall.

Lirael lost one of her hands in the binding of Orannis, but now she has a new hand, one of gilded steel and Charter Magic.

On a dangerous journey, Lirael returns to her childhood home, the Clayr’s Glacier, where she was once a Second Assistant Librarian. There, a young woman from the distant North brings her a message from her long-dead mother, Arielle.

It is a warning about the Witch with No Face. But who is the Witch, and what is she planning? Lirael must use her new powers to save the Old Kingdom from this great danger—and it must be forestalled not only in the living world but also in the cold, remorseless river of Death.

Auteur.rice / Author

Garth Nix est né en 1963 à Melbourne, en Australie, au son de la fanfare de l’Armée du Salut qui jouait “Hail the Conquering Hero Comes” ou peut-être “Roll Out the Barrel”. Garth a quitté Melbourne très jeune pour Canberra (la capitale fédérale) et y est resté jusqu’à l’âge de dix-neuf ans, date à laquelle il est parti parcourir le Royaume-Uni dans une Austin déglinguée avec un coffre rempli de livres et une machine à écrire Silver-Reed. Il est aujourd’hui un auteur primé et l’un des noms les plus influents du fantastique contemporain.


Garth Nix was born in 1963 in Melbourne, Australia, to the sound of the Salvation Army band outside playing ’Hail the Conquering Hero Comes’ or possibly ’Roll Out the Barrel’. Garth left Melbourne at an early age for Canberra (the federal capital) and stayed there till he was nineteen, when he left to drive around the UK in a beat-up Austin with a boot full of books and a Silver-Reed typewriter. He is now an award-winning author and one of the most influential names in contemporary fantasy.


Praise for Goldenhand: “A masterfully spun tale well worth the years long wait.” — Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“For fantasy lovers, teens and adults alike.” — School Library Journal

“Fans will cheer this latest volume- tightly paced with a satisfying resolution, capable and relatable female characters, plenty of action, and reappearances by beloved characters-and fervently hope for more to come.” — Horn Book Magazine

“Goldenhand delivers the bleak, beautiful magic only Garth Nix can create-impeccable in its details, harrowing in its action.” — Leigh Bardugo, New York Times bestselling author of Six of Crows and The Grisha Trilogy

“Goldenhand reaffirms why Nix is a master of the genre: his exquisitely detailed world-building is unparalleled, and his characters are so tremendously alive and compelling that I’m convinced there’s Charter Magic in every word.” — Sarah J. Maas, New York Times bestselling author of A Court of Thorns and Roses and Throne of Glass series

“Garth Nix is one of the best worldbuilders in fantasy, and this book is merely further proof. I love the Old Kingdom series, and Goldenhand is an excellent continuation, packed with the excitement and passion of a storytelling virtuoso at the height of his abilities.” — Brandon Sanderson, New York Times bestselling author of the Mistborn trilogy, Warbreaker, The Alloy of Law, The Way of Kings, Rithmatist, and Steelheart.

Praise for the Old Kingdom series: Praise for Clariel: “Between striking characters-from the heroic if not entirely competent young Abhorsen-in-Waiting, Belatiel, to the enigmatic, catlike Mogget-and Nix’s brilliantly complex magic system, this superb tale is exactly the book fans of the series have been awaiting.” — Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Themes of freedom and destiny underpin Clariel’s harrowing, bittersweet story, and readers will delight in the telling (and in fan favorite Mogget’s return).” — Booklist (starred review)

“Clariel is a deeply sympathetic character faced with complicated choices, the consequences of which are frighteningly uncertain as she is pulled between the wild Free Magic and the disciplined Charter.” — School Library Journal (starred review)

“Nix’s tale provides a complete experience unto itself. But his focus on this strong character whose overriding passion is to go her own way provides a hugely satisfying background to the other Abhorsen books. A suspenseful prequel to the much-loved Abhorsen books, showcasing the independent Clariel.” — Shelf Awareness (starred review)

Praise for SABRIEL: “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. I congratulate Garth Nix. And I look forward to reading his next piece of work.” — Philip Pullman

Praise for LIRAEL: “What makes Lirael a delight is the magic that Nix brings to his story and to his characters.” — Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Riveting.” — Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Praise for ABHORSEN: “Breathtaking, bittersweet, and utterly unforgettable.” — Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“At once an allegory regarding war and peace and a testament to friendship, this is thought-provoking fantasy.” — Publishers Weekly (starred review)
