Biografía breve
Garth Nix was born in 1963 in Melbourne, Australia, to the sound of the Salvation Army band outside playing 'Hail the Conquering Hero Comes' or possibly 'Roll Out the Barrel'. Garth left Melbourne at an early age for Canberra (the federal capital) and stayed there till he was nineteen, when he left to drive around the UK in a beat-up Austin with a trunk full of books and a Silver-Reed typewriter.

Despite a wheel literally falling off the Austin, Garth survived to return to Australia and study at the University of Canberra. After finishing his degree in 1986 he worked in a bookshop, then as a book publicist, a publisher's sales representative, and editor. Along the way he was also a part-time soldier in the Australian Army Reserve, serving in an Assault Pioneer platoon for four years. Garth left publishing to work as a public relations and marketing consultant from 1994-1997, till he became a full-time writer in 1998. He did that for a year before becoming a part-time literary agent in 1999. In January 2002 Garth went back to writing full time again, despite his belief that full-time writing explains the strange behaviour of many authors.

Garth currently lives in a beach suburb of Sydney, with his wife Anna, a publisher.

I liked this one a bit more than the 1st, although I could have done with less teenaged angst although the reasons were made clear near the end of the book. I never understand, however, why seemingly every single writer or storyteller makes evil so much more competent, organized and stronger than the 'forces of good'. I think I'd enjoy it better if they were better matched.

Once again, I seem to be focused on the negative, but I shouldn't give it so much weight. I actually pulled over to the side of the road on the way to work to order the next book in the series as I finished this audiobook. So, yeah...I liked it.

Reread it for the first time in 8 or 10 years because Sam really likes it and (nerdery of nerderies) we're currently playing a D&D campaign based on it. (I'm teenage Chrestomanci, because... um.)

Getting back to the book, I was surprised by how little I remembered and how great the atmosphere is. Always liked Lirael the best (must reread it now), and never got past a few chapters of Abhorsen, so that comes next.

Reread 10/10/2016, because Sam got [b:Goldenhand|23302838|Goldenhand (Abhorsen, #5)|Garth Nix|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1459203199s/23302838.jpg|42858213] last week. On her rec I'm skipping [b:Clariel|20662728|Clariel (Abhorsen, #4)|Garth Nix|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1393877442s/20662728.jpg|6125574] for now.

I think I initially (many years ago) didn't make it through this book because I was so upset about what happened right at the beginning. It turns out 75% of the way through the book that Sabriel and Touchstone didn't die, of course.

The Disreputable Dog is my favorite character, no contest. I hope she shows up again.
