Lirael by Garth Nix

The second book in the Abhorsen trilogy, Lirael was an excellent book and really added a lot to the story. I really enjoyed how this book helped explain how things work in the Old Kingdom and I thought that Lirael and Disreputable Dog were excellent characters. I also enjoyed how the story came from several different perspectives. In this book, Lirael is a daughter of the Clayr, but has never received the gift of seership. When she is forced to leave the Clayr’s glacier, she embarks on a journey not only to save the kingdom, but to know her own destiny.

To add to the content rating - There is less fighting in this book, but it does talk about how the Clayr usually have children without ever getting married.
