Publisher's Summary

Lirael has never felt like a true daughter of the Clayr. Abandoned by her mother, ignorant of her father's identity, Lirael resembles no one else in her large extended family living in the Clayr's glacier. She doesn't even have the Sight, the ability to See into the present and possibly futures, that is the very birthright of the Clayr. Nonetheless, it is Lirael in whose hands the fate of the Old Kingdom lies. She must undertake a desperate mission under the growing shadow of an ancient evil, one that opposes the Royal Family, blocks the Sight of the Clayr, and threatens to break the very boundary between Life and Death itself. With only her faithful companion, the Disreputable Dog to help her, Lirael must find the courage to seek her own hidden destiny.

Having loved the books I got these audio versions and haven't been disappointed! The narrator does a fantastic job and I have had many happy hours listening! Already listened to them all twice! Fantastic!

Excellent part of the trilogy

We loved Sabriel, and embarked happily on Lirael. It's a good book, and a vital part of the trilogy that culminates with the brilliant Abhorsen. Of all the three, though, this one dragged a tiny bit in places... particularly with the drawn-out angst of Lirael and Sameth as they discover their identities. Still, an excellent book and a guarantor of quiet and happy car journeys.
