it was amazing
bookshelves: classics, fantasy
Read in December, 2006

esti told me she read a book about anti-necromancers that fought to put the dead back into Death. at the time i thought, "hm... an unusual premise, since i dont have anything to do at the moment, i think i'll read it". and read it i did, and the second book after it, and then the third book. and a year after i read Sabriel, i'm officially a fan of Mr. Nix's. The Abhorsen trilogy is absolutely, undeniably, the best fantasy trilogy on my list. the pacing, the character development, the suspense, all works out, giving me the most pleasurable reading experience since LOTR trilogy and in some case.. (dare i say it) even better.

If there's any complain to make, is that the distance between the first book to the second is a bit too far in the timeline compared to the distance between the second and the third book. making it feel like the second and third book should be just one book rather than two books.
