Flamingnet Student Book Reviewer SHC
Prince Sameth and Lirael must stop the Destroyer
from being unleashed. Hedge, a servant of the
Destroyer, plans to use the influence Nick
Sayre, a friend of Prince Sameth from across the
Wall, to join the two parts that the Destroyer
has been halved into. Once the Destroyer is
whole he will wreak havoc on everyone and
everything, demolishing the world. Lirael must
seek a way to bind the Destroyer back into its
to parts before it is too late.
"Abhorsen" is the last book in the trilogy that
began with "Sabriel." I thought that "Lirael"
was better than "Sabriel" after I had read both,
but now that I have read "Abhorsen," I have
decided that it was the best book in the
trilogy. This is because "Lirael" was something
of a buildup to it. Therefore, "Abhorsen" was
action packed and the whole book was a climax to
the whole trilogy with a superb ending, unlike
in other books where only the last ten pages are
thrilling. The Abhorsen trilogy is the best
trilogy that I have ever read. Yes, even better
then the Harry Potter books.
