Clariel The Lost Abhorsen, Book 4 of The Old Kingdom

Clariel is the daughter of one of the most notable families in the Old Kingdom, with blood relations to the Abhorsen and, most important, to the King. She dreams of living a simple life but discovers this is hard to achieve when a dangerous Free Magic creature is loose in the city, her parents want to marry her off to a killer, and there is a plot brewing against the old and withdrawn King Orrikan.

“Between striking characters . . . and Nix’s brilliantly complex magic system, this superb tale is exactly the book fans of the series have been awaiting.”

~ PUBLISHERS WEEKLY, starred review

“A thunderstorm of a tale, bitter and brutal but dazzling in its ferocity.”


“Fans will treasure this long-awaited opportunity to return to a much-loved world, built with as much originality and richness as ever.”
