Abhorsen Series

Sabriel performs a ritual to summon a flood of water and then flees the house by Paperwing a magically propelled plane-like structure. Garth nix sabriel in the air, Sabriel and Mogget are attacked by the Dead, and Sabriel loosens Mogget's collar to avoid a fatal crash.


They fall into a sinkhole, where Mogget, in his unbound form, attempts to murder Sabriel. However, she is able to bind him anew with a ring given to her for that purpose.


The next day, Sabriel and Garth nix sabriel walk through a tunnel to another sinkhole, which Mogget determines to be Holehallow, the historical burial place of the royal family.

Each king is buried in a boat. Sabriel discovers garth nix sabriel the figurehead on one of the boats is not a wooden carving but an actual man, who has been imprisoned in that form for two hundred years.


Garth nix sabriel man tells Sabriel that he was a Royal Guard before his imprisonment, and asks to be called Touchstone a jester's name for reasons that remain cryptic. Sabriel, Touchstone, and Mogget continue their journey, stopping to help rid a seaside village of a Dead creature.

They obtain a boat there and sail up the coast of the Old Kingdom until they reach Belisaere, the capital. They find the Abhorsen in an garth nix sabriel reservoir in Belisaere, trapped in Death. Since he has stayed too long in Death, he cannot return for long, but with what little time he has left, the Abhorsen tells Sabriel about the evil known as Kerrigor.

Kerrigor has risen far from Garth nix sabriel and intends to wreak havoc in the Old Kingdom and Ancelstierre.

Sabriel releases her father from Death, and once they emerge from Death, father and daughter part for the last time — he, to ring the bell Astarael the sound of which throws everyone who hears it far into the realm of Death and delay Kerrigor's havoc; and she, to save Touchstone by bringing him and herself as far away from Astarael's music as possible.

To prevent him from losing to Death, she kisses him roughly in order to keep him focused on Life. In the process of ringing Astarael, Sabriel's father releases Mogget.

They succeed, but as long as Kerrigor's body is intact, he will rise from Death again and again. Sabriel and Touchstone use another Paperwing to bring them as close to the Wall as possible, and cross over to Ancelstierre to find Kerrigor's body, following the clairvoyant guidance of the Clayr twins Garth nix sabriel and Ryelle.

They find the body, and Sabriel finally defeats Kerrigor by binding him with Ranna and Mogget's collar. She dies but the previous Abhorsens prevent her from crossing into Final Death as she cannot die without someone else to take her place as Abhorsen.

She wakes up with Touchstone before her, and garth nix sabriel Mogget and Kerrigor asleep, bound by Garth nix sabriel the first of seven necromantic bells that instills sleep and quiescence in those who hear garth nix sabriel.
