"Death and what came after death was no great mystery to Sabriel. She just wished it was." (Sabriel)
WHAT I LOVE...
★ Fantasy. I don't know when last I read an intense fantasy, like Sabriel. The nostalgia is real!
★ Sabriel, because she is so damn awesome!
★ Mogget. His cynical nature and sarcasm made my life.
★ That the romance is subtle and just happens. It doesn't feel forced.
★ The world building. Seriously amazing!
★ The magic system.
★ The uniqueness of the Abhorsen
WHAT I DISLIKE...
★ Garth Nix's writing style. It makes things difficult to visualise.
★ Sabriel is easy to put down.
★ The pacing. The book starts off being intriguing, drags towards the middle and has an action-packed ending!
Sabriel is an awesome and unique fantasy with a strong main female character that's easy to root for, just beware of the writing style and pacing.
