First edition. The epic
conclusion to Garth Nix’s New York Times
best-selling Old Kingdom trilogy. The Abhorsen, Sabriel, and King Touchstone

Clayr to guide her, and the help of her companions, the Disreputable Dog, and
Mogget, Lirael must search in both Life and Death for some means to defeat the
evil destructor — before it is too late....
