Abhorsen, by Garth Nix


The excellent conclusion to Nix’s trilogy about the Abhorsen, those who use their magic to send the risen Dead back into the nine gates of Death. This is a direct sequel from the second book, and picks up just where that left off. Lirael and Sameth are working to save Sam’s friend Nick, and to stop an evil necromancer about to resurrect a dark evil that will destroy the world. These novels are filled with extraordinary world-building and fully three-dimensional characters, creating wonderful stories. Recommended for 16 and up, due to warfare, gore, Death, and many, many zombies (though they are never called that).
