Description

One of the greatest living fantasy writers . . . I will never get enough of the Old Kingdom’ ? Sarah J. Maas

DISCOVER THE INTERNATIONAL SMASH HIT FANTASY SERIES FROM AWARD WINNING AUTHOR GARTH NIX

In a land where the dead will not stay dead, eighteen-year-old orphan Terciel is learning to wield a mighty and terrible power: necromancy.

For he is the Abhorsen-in-Waiting, the latest in a ancient line of necromancers tasked with protecting the Old Kingdom and preventing the Dead from crossing over to the realm of the living.

Across the Wall in Ancelstierre, where magic does not usually work, Elinor, nineteen, lives a secluded life. But when destiny intervenes, she finds herself on a path to love, danger, and an adventure into the dominion of the dead…

She does not know that she is deeply connected to the Old Kingdom until destiny places her on a path of magic, romance and a fight against the Dead who will not stay dead.

The Old Kingdom awaits in Terciel & Elinor, the eagerly awaited prequel to Garth Nix’s iconic fantasy classic Sabriel.
