Le fermier Giles n’avait pas l’air d’un héros. Gros et barbu, il menait une vie lente et confortable. Un jour, un géant sourd et myope déboule sur ses terres…

Les aventures de Tom Bombadil rassemblent des vers de hobbits tirés du “Livre rouge” et d’autres poèmes relatant des légendes et des plaisanteries de la Comté à la fin du Troisième Âge.

Smith of Wootton Major raconte la préparation du grand gâteau qui marque la fête des bons enfants et les événements magiques qui s’ensuivent.

Roverandom est un vrai chien transformé par magie en jouet et contraint de rechercher le sorcier qui lui a fait du tort pour redevenir normal. L’histoire a été écrite pour consoler Michael, le fils de Tolkien âgé de quatre ans, qui avait perdu un chien jouet adoré sur la plage.

Farmer Giles did not look like a hero. He was fat and red-bearded and enjoyed a slow, comfortable life. Then one day a rather deaf and short-sighted giant blundered on to his land…

The Adventures of Tom Bombadil collects hobbit-verses from the ‘Red Book’ and other poems relating legends and jests of the Shire at the end of the Third Age.

Smith of Wootton Major tells of the preparation of the Great Cake to mark the Feast of Good Children and the magical events which follow.

Roverandom is a real dog who is magically transformed into a toy and is forced to seek out the wizard who wronged him in order to be returned to normal. The story was written to console Tolkien’s four-year-old son, Michael, who lost a beloved toy dog on the beach.

Media

“This sixth book in the Old Kingdom series chronicles how Sabriel’s parents met. Terciel is likable and his struggles as Abhorsen-in-Waiting are sympathetic, but it’s endearing, charismatic Elinor who steals the show in this character-driven story. In this book, Nix offers fans of the Old Kingdom a gift in the book’s return to the feel of the original trilogy; readers will be glad he chose the path that led to this story. Enjoyable, engaging, and well written.” — Kirkus Reviews

“Terciel’s mix of competence and vulnerability is appealing, but Elinor’s journey—buoyed by her resilient spirit—is particularly rewarding. Fans will relish this return to a beloved world.” — Booklist

” . . . All the Nix hallmarks are in place, including frightening Dead entities, multifaceted methods of wielding magic, competent women, and pragmatic attitudes toward sex. Loving callbacks to Sabriel render this installment of greatest interest to longtime fans, but Elinor’s introduction to the world of Charter and Free Magics, and chapters focused on Terciel’s childhood provide plenty of exposition for new readers.” — Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“Well written and well paced, Nix’s original ‘Old Kingdom’ trilogy is considered a YA classic for a reason. VERDICT This prequel has broad appeal, but will ultimately be picked up by fans of the original series.” — School Library Journal

“There is no joy like returning to the Old Kingdom.” — Leigh Bardugo

“Passionate, compelling, and teeming with the fantastic, the story of Elinor and Terciel — a prequel to Nix’s beloved Old Kingdom classics — will charm new readers and thrill longtime fans.”  — Cassandra Clare, author of the Mortal Instruments Series

Praise for SABRIEL: “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)

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: “Riveting.” — Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“The action charges along at a gallop–a page turner for sure.” — ALA Booklist (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 a thought-provoking fantasy.” — Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Nix (The Left-Handed Booksellers of London) makes a satisfying return to his Old Kingdom series with this prequel about Sabriel’s parents, Terciel and Elinor. Elinor, inexperienced with the Old Kingdom, offers a useful introduction to the world, while sympathetic characters, a unique magical system, and frightening foes guarantee broad appeal to teen and adult fantasy readers, whether established Nix fans or new to the series.” — Publishers Weekly
