AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Lirael, newly come into her inheritance as the Abhorsen-in-Waiting, knows that the fate of the world is in her hands. With only a vision from the Clayr to guide her, and the uncertain help of her companions - Sam, the Disreputable Dog and Mogget - Lirael sets out on her perilous mission. The answer must be found somewhere in Life or Death - but can a former Second Assistant Librarian possibly discover the means to defeat the Destroyer ... before it is too late?'
