Lirael, the protagonist of the second and third books, is Sabriel’s younger half-sister on the father’s side; but is unaware of this until her nineteenth year, and largely raised by her mother’s relatives, the Clayr.

She embodies everything I look for in a protagonist. I couldn’t wait for it to end. Specific settings of the book carry emotion that is felt by the characters and readers alike.

Lirael – Wikipedia

I think I prefer Liraelthough, because of the library, and because also Abhorsen honestly kind of scares the shit out of me. Oh, yeah, did I mention that Lirael is a librarian?

Lirael by Garth Nix book review

More books by this author More books in this series. The entire Abhorsen lirawl gets better and better. It is difficult for me to handle immature behavior.
