Abhorsen  - Garth Nix I stayed up past midnight on a workday to finish this book because, although I didn't want the story to end, I couldn't put it off any longer. As the bulk of the last few pages diminished between my fingers, I felt quite tearful at the thought that there would be no more of Sabriel, Lirael or all the other amazing characters Nix created. My favourites were the creatures of Free Magic (the dog and cat) but I have a soft spot for Sameth because he was the one that struggled with his fate the most...in my opinion. This series is pure fantasy, action and adventure. I loved that there is a hint of romance but not much at all. A good story doesn't need the angst that romance sometimes introduces. It just needs Garth Nix to write it (yes, I'm officially a fan). Oh, and a handful of the Dead for good measure.
