He just seems like a bit of a waste in all honesty: Every single place Lirael visited played an physical and an emotional role in the book.

The Disreputable Dog The highlight of this series so far truly lies in the magic and worldbuilding. Lirael and Sameth have reached the safety of the Abhorsens House after fleeing from Necromancer Hedge and his dead minions. Ok, I’m seething again. Sameth flees the palace to rescue Nick, and is later joined by Mogget. Similar to what Mogget did in the first book. Also, Tim Curry’s lireal is very good. May 15, Sh3lly grumpybookgrrrl. I guess I just didn’t click with this one as much as Sabriel.

Sadly, Mogget leads us to the negative part of the review. Preview — Lirael by Garth Nix.

Lirael: Daughter of the Clayr

Illuminae Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff. The novel is more soul-searching than its predecessor Sabrieland the major theme is that society does not have to dictate the outcome of one’s future. I also personally think this book was better than the first.

Please, just put him in the back somewhere and let him play sports or something. If Sameth hadn’t bugged me so much, I would have given this book a 4. Oct 20, Eddie Costello rated it really liked it Shelves: Views Read Edit View history.

As much as I love Sabriel both the book and the character! I will read almost anything that has a Dillions c I’m not a huge fantasy person, but I’m always up for a kick-ass heroine such as Lirael. More about Garth Nix For such a long book, it made it seem a bit like filler.

I went back and forth between liking the characters and not, which I think reveals how fully formed they are. When first reading Lirael I was disappointed that there was little mention or appearance of Sabriel and Touchstone as they were my favourite characters from the first book in the series.

I felt like the book was way too long. View all 21 comments. He reached out to it, like a hunter trying to pat a lirarl in the vain hope it might only be a friendly dog.

For instance, the Clayr’s glacier has an air of oppression and deep sadness, while the great library Lirael came to love conveyed a sense of hope. Smart, funny, and doesn’t need no man to get the job done.
