really liked it

Another great series from Garth Nix. This man has a brilliant imagination and is not bad with the turn of a phrase either. These stories takes place in a dark and dangerous country where the spirits of the dead are not necessarily gone and many sinister forces prey on the living. The Abhorsen fights these dark forces and helps send the dead through the gates to a permanent end.
I really liked all three of these books, but there were times while reading them that I found myself to be very anxious. The constant sense of bad-things-about-to-happen left me with a sense of dread that bled into my real life. Now that's some powerful writing.
