Sabriel’s father has been trapped in Death by a dangerous Free Magic creature.Armed with her father’s binding-bells and sword, she finds companions in Mogget, an ancient spirit bound into the body of a cat, and Touchstone, a young Charter Mage whom Sabriel frees from a long, magical imprisonment.

And every step brings them closer to a battle that will pit them against the true forces of life and death – and bring Sabriel face-to-face with her own destiny.
