Product description

The long-buried secrets of the Old Kingdom and the Ninth Gate are about to be revealed. Evil necromancy has resurrected Orannis, the Destroyer, from its subterranean prison. Now it seeks to unleash its terrible powers. Only Lirael, the Abhorsen-in-Waiting, has any chance of stopping this enemy of all Life. As she and her companions – Sameth the Disreputable Dog, and Mogget – set out on their fateful journey, Lirael has no idea of what lies ahead. Only days earlier, she was merely a Second Assistant Librarian. Now, with nothing but a vision from the Clayr to guide her, she must search both Life and Death for a way to defeat the Destroyer. But will she be too late?
