This book is first in the Abhorsen series, but it doesn’t have a cliffhanger,
It is a fun well written fantasy,which take grim turns at times
The protagonist is a young woman,Sabriel, has a good, clear head on her shoulder. She’s smart, she’s strong, she’s a well-balanced and interesting character. The characters in Sabriel are all interesting and capturing in their way. Mogget was just pure win. He cracked me up. Touchstone was annoying at first but quickly won me over.
The world is interesting and complex, filled with enough creepy things that keep the reader interested.
