I have read many fantasy books and I can say with certainty that this is one of those stories that stand out. Sabriel is a very unique, interesting, complex story. Like many other fantasy books, it takes a little time to understand what is going on and really get into the story, but when that happens, you will most likely take a deep breath, dive in and refuse to come out before the end.

Sabriel is a young girl but she is an adult inside. A strong female character is a gem! She is not annoying or dense and she understand what it means to have a responsibility.This book has great characterization. Touchstone, Maggot...all are very unique and interesting and memorable. The magic system rocks! If you like Necromancy, you have to read this.

Is this a romantic book? Not really, this a is very intense fantasy book and romance isn't a primary element.

Is there a very beautiful love hidden in the pages? Hell yeah! A grown up kind of love!

In my opinion, this is a dark fantasy. Certain parts completely took my breath away. You just have to imagine and put yourself in Sabriel's place and you will successfully scare the hell out of yourselves.

I really enjoyed reading this book. I may not remember all the details after a long time but this book is unique enough that I will never confuse it with something else and I just need a few hints to remember it all.

Are you looking for an intense, rich, fascinating fantasy book? Try this.
