The first episode of the Old Kingdom trilogy, Sabriel is the story of a teenage girl thrust into her father's role as the necromancer Abhorsen when he suffers an untimely death at the hands of the Big Bad's disciple.
Excellent storytelling, superb atmosphere - Nix's alternative reality seems to have depth beyond most. Significantly better than Pullman's 'His Dark Materials' rant, this book is highly recommended.
