Entrez dans le Vieux Royaume, un monde de sombres secrets et de magie dangereuse.

Enfant, Sabriel a été envoyée en sécurité à Ancelstierre, de l’autre côté du Mur. Aujourd’hui âgée de dix-huit ans, elle reçoit un message énigmatique et désespéré de son père, l’Abhorsen, le protecteur magique dont la tâche est de lier et de renvoyer à la Mort ceux qui ne veulent pas rester Morts.

Farouchement déterminée à aider son père, qui est dangereusement piégé dans la Mort, et à le sauver de la sinistre entité de Magie Libre qui l’a en quelque sorte piégé, Sabriel doit se préparer à entrer elle-même dans la Mort – et à trouver son destin.

Pour préserver la vie, les Abhorsen doivent entrer dans la mort.

Des contenus exclusifs, dont une nouvelle originale mettant en scène Sabriel, un essai de Garth Nix sur son processus d’écriture et des photographies du manuscrit manuscrit de l’auteur, complètent cette édition spéciale.

Enter the Old Kingdom, a world of dark secrets and dangerous magic.

As a child, Sabriel was sent across the Wall to Ancelstierre to safety. Now eighteen years old, she receives a cryptic and desperate message from her father, the Abhorsen—the magical protector whose task it is to bind and send back to Death those who won’t stay Dead.

Fiercely determined to help her father, who is perilously trapped in Death, and save him from the sinister Free Magic entity that has somehow ensnared him, Sabriel must prepare to enter Death herself—and find her destiny.

To preserve life, the Abhorsen must enter death.

Exclusive content, including an original short story featuring Sabriel, an essay from Garth Nix about his writing process, and photographs of the author’s handwritten manuscript, complete this special edition.

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.

Media

“Rich, complex, involving, hard to put down, excellent high fantasy.” — Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Nix has created an ingenious, icy world. The action charges along at a gallop. A page-turner for sure.” — ALA Booklist (starred review)

“By turns rousing, charming and slyly funny, Sabriel is an engaging tale that slays sexual stereotypes along with its monsters.” — San Francisco Chronicle

“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

“A wonderful new fantasy filled with rich and complex imagery.” — Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA)

“Nix’s monsters are scary and repulsive, his sense of humor is downright sneaky, and he puts his heroine through engrossing physical and emotional wringers. This book is guaranteed to keep readers up way past their bedtimes.” — School Library Journal

“A compelling fantasy. The story is remarkable for the level of originality and leaves readers to explore for themselves.” — Horn Book Magazine

“I think Garth Nix has created a really remarkable and persuasive world; and done it in the grand style of heroic romance-with some wonderful twists and turns. His Sabriel is a herione truly worthy of that role.” — Lloyd Alexander, author of The Black Cauldron

“An involving fantasy that takes off running and doesn’t let up the pace until the final page. The pacing is exquisite, the suspense rising and falling and rising again until the truly edge-of-your-seat finale. A winner for fantasy and adventure lovers.” — Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“Sabriel has a fast pace, drama, vivid descriptions, excitement and humour. Packs of putrefying zombies, too. What more could you want?” — Guardian Unlimited, Susan Price, author of The Sterkarm Handshake
